Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star 35297-000 7-Piece Knife Block Set
  • I used the chef's knife to neatly and thinly slice partially frozen boneless chicken breasts to make chicken stir-fry for dinner.
  • The serrated utility knife is great for things like tomatoes if you're not comfortable using the chef's knife. It's a great picnic knife too if you get a little sheath or wrap it snugly in a napkin or newspaper.
  • This set I gave as a gift to my daughter. I have had a set for years and have been the best knives I ever had. I use mine everyday and they continue to preform.
  • This is a great knife set and this was the best price I could find. When select a set double check which knives are included in the piece count, don't go by picture. Enjoy
  • Well, here it is over 35 years later - my wife and I have gotten old, our kids have grown and moved on and the Henckel knives are still as good as the day we bought them.
Zwilling J.A. Henckels TWIN Four Star II 33402-000 7-Piece Knife Set
  • This set is of a superb quality. Please note that the same brand offers an 8-pc set, which is only 10 box more expensive.
  • Excellent knife set for the price. Speedy delivery well packaged. The knives are still as sharp as when they arrived 14 months ago.
  • These knives are great, I used to be a chef and used the original Four Star knives everyday for many years.
  • I am really happy with the quality of this knife set. I added the matching steak knives as well.
  • There is NO BREAD KNIFE in this set. It includes a serrated knife about the size of a normal dinner knife.

What customers say about "Features"
Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star 35297-000 7-Piece Knife Block Set
  • The knife literally cut through the partially frozen chicken breast like it was going through soft butter. The sliced chicken was almost paper-thin thanks to the sharp well-balanced knife.
  • Well balanced handles. The handles fit like a glove in my hand when I am cutting up food.
  • Dishwasher safe knives but hand washing is recommended. I will probably wash my Henckels knives by hand.
  • I much prefer the look and feel of the Pro S - - my personal preference is that the full tang riveted handle makes the knife set appear to be of higher quality (non-plastic handle).
  • The four-star handles are mid-size poly; the five-star handles are similar but a bit larger and more ergonomic. Henckels also makes a "classic" handle, both in poly and wood, and also an all-metal handle.
Zwilling J.A. Henckels TWIN Four Star II 33402-000 7-Piece Knife Set
  • One pass of the chef's knife cuts through the meat and the container it is laying oin. If your finger is in the way it will cut that too. Be careful and good luck!
  • Truly excellent kitchen ware. they sharpen well with the included steel.
  • Sometimes new knives need to have an "edge" put on them, but these arrived sharp and ready do dice!.
  • They are so sharp and the edge lasts very long! I'll always purchase Henckels.
  • Excellent, excellent knives. They are sturdy and sharp.
