Twin Signature and the 19-piece set

If you’re not so familiar with the Henckels brand, then here’s a bit of background on it. It’s one of the most popular knife makers in the world, and it hails from Solingen, Germany, the City of Blades. The brand prides itself in making high quality knives and offers several product lines. The Twin Signature line, for example, features blades stamped from single piece high carbon stainless steel. The blades are laser-sharpened, hand-honed, and underwent the Friodur ice hardening process that gives the blades their long-lasting edge and durability. In short, you can count on your Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Signature 19-Piece Knife Set with Block to last for years before they need to be replaced. The knives in the set also feature a triple riveted handle for added durability.

Aside from getting high quality knives, you also get all the knives you need for your normal kitchen tasks. Included in the set are eight steak knives, a peeler, a parer, two non-serrated utility knives (4.5 and 6 inch), a serrated utility knife, a chef’s knife, a Santoku, a bread knife, a pair of kitchen shears, a sharpening steel, and a storage block.
