ZWILLING Pro is the most user-friendly knife available to market. The unique blade shape and ergonomic bolster are the result of 280 years of experience in knife making, and the rigorous study of how knives are used. A unique curved bolster supports the professional pinch grip, with thumb and index finger on the blade, for safe cutting and less fatigue. The blade was redesigned with a broader curve in the front to facilitate the rocking motion of Western cutting, while the straight back is ideal for the Asian chopping motion. The full length of the blade can be used when cutting and can be sharpened from bolster to tip. Designed in Italy by Matteo Thun and made in Germany by ZWILLING J.A. Henckels, the company that sets the standard for exceptional cutlery worldwide. Set includes 4" Paring Knife, 5" Serrated Utility Knife, 7" Santoku Knife, 8" Chef's Knife, 8" Bread Knife, 4 - 4.5" Steak Knives, Kitchen Shears, Sharpening Steel, and Hardwood Block.

ZWILLING Pro 12-pc Knife Block Set is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 195.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Assortment of Knives! I did a lot of research before finally deciding to purchase this block set. I'd decided on the Pro line for sure, but then it seemed that all of the block sets that fit into my price range were somehow lacking the exact mix of knives that would work for me as my first set of non-$20 knives. I most like that this set included steak knives, spaces for additional knives you might purchase, and a unique but more practical block design for fitting on my countertop. I have not been disappointed. I've added the petite chef's knife, a boning knife and a filleting knife...I look forward to using and caring for them all for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Balanced Knife This is one of the most comfortable knives I have ever used. That's attributed to the curved bolster which forces you to hold the knife like a professional chef holds one. It's perfectly balanced and you can use this knife for holiday meal prep and not realize how much time you're spending chopping and dicing. And the steak knives are phenomenal...they are non serrated and cut through beef, pork and chicken like it were butter. This set is German made; I plan on giving them to one of my grandchildren when I am done with the day to day cooking I currently do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first real knife set I've always bought cheap $50 knife sets and they'd dull so fast. I'd joke with my wife that we need to saw just to cut a grape. I did a lot of research on knive sets and wanted to get something nice this time so I ended up choosing the Zwilling Pro set. We've only had them for a month so far but it sure is nice to grab a knife that cuts well. I feel much safer using these knives as well since they cut as they should. The grip and feel is good as well. The only thing I'd change is the knife block. I like having the steak knives up front since I use those a lot. I'm sure I'll get use to it though. I'd recommend these as a good set that I hope will last a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the best set I love everything about this set. The Pro line is very comfortable to use. The curved bolster encourages me to hold my knives properly and makes it comfortable to do so. The German steel is super strong and sharp. The quality of the forged blades is above the rest. I have never used steak knives like this before. They are complete straight edged just like the other knives. They cut through the meat so straight and without tearing. Im glad there are extra slots in the block.....i will definitely purchase some additional pieces in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eight months later I'm reviewing these knives after eight months of extensive use. Many of these knives have been used on a daily basis and all have been used at least on a weekly basis. They hold a very sharp edge and cut amazingly. As an added plus, they look as nice as they did on day one too. I'd buy these knives again in a second.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Knives - Elegant Presentation This comprehensive set has all that a good home cook would need to prepare the most delicious meal. The quality of the Pro line is unquestionable. The steel will hold up for a lifetime. The innovative angled bolster is easy to grip, keeping the thumb and forefinger in the correct position for maximum control. I like this set because it is great for a two cook household. It has two chef-quality working knives - the 8" chef's and the 7" santoku. Both can do just about all the cutting, chopping and slicing you will need. And with the specialty knives and steak knives, you are set. Add a carving set and this becomes the best wedding/housewarming gift ever. The uniquely angled block is definitely for right-handers. (Get the forward facing block if you are a lefty.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best This is the ultimate in the workhorse kitchen knife set. First let's start with the Pro design, the curved bolster is so comfortable that I can cut like a pun intended. The same applies to the shape of the blade on the chef knife; it is incredibly easy to rock like you see the chefs do on Food Network. The bread knife is essential and the serrated utility will handle anything from a tomato, orange or slice through a package of fresh sausage. The last thing that makes this the best is the steak knives. They have a fine edge just like the chef and parer and will cut through any meat like butter, and they normally sell for over $200. These knives stay sharp and I know will last a lifetime.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design It seems like they have thought of everything with this knife block! I love that it look a little different than most block with the slanted top that makes the knives sit in the block very well because they have a slant that makes holding the knife much more comfortable. This set comes with ever knife I need and I love that it has both the chef's knife and santoku. I also love that it comes with steak knives so I didn't have to look around to buy them somewhere else. This is everything I need!
