For nearly three years now Ashley and I have been using the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Professional S 7 Piece Block Set. Pictured on the upper left; we use these knives on most days. There are a variety of things in the kitchen where these knives excel Last week Ashley reminded me that Derek cut his finger while washing the carving knife when he visited.
I was immediteally reminded of when I was 17 years old and cut myself on my new Ka-Bar USMC Fighting Knife. Is it a sign of mishandling? Yes, most likely. Is it also a sign that the knife is better then it was estimated to be? Absolutely!
The Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Four Star II 7-Piece Knife Set with Block pictured lower left would be an upgrade to what we are using. Although I think it is better it did not fit for us. We wanted value for the big knives. And the Professional S block set has served us well. We simply combined the Professional S block set with Twin Four Star II 4-piece Steak Set.
We went ahead and added the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Four Star II 4-Piece Steak Set Upon slicing our first steaks I knew we had made the right decision. It is noticeably more expensive for this steak knife. But their far and away better steel then their line of International steak knives.
