ZWILLING J.A. Henckels TWIN Signature knives are stamped from a single piece of German steel, resulting in a lighter weight knife that does not compromise on sharpness. Hand honed and finished by the most skilled artisans, the laser controlled edge is incredibly sharp. TWIN Signature knives are made of a proprietary, special formula steel that has been perfected over 280 years. Combined with ZWILLING’s FRIODUR ice-hardening technique, the result is a harder, sharper blade that will not stain or chip and remains sharp longer. Set includes 2-1/2″ Peeling Knife, 4″ Paring/Utility Knife, 5″ Serrated Utility Knife, 6″ Utility/Sandwich Knife, 8″ Chef’s Knife, 7″ Santoku Knife Hollow Edge, 4-1/2″ Utility Knife, 8″ Bread Knife, 9″ Sharpening Steel, 8 – 4.5″ Steak Knives, Kitchen Shears, and Block.
The handles on Twin Signature cutlery feature the traditional three rivets and visible full tang, and are stylishly curved not only to feel good but look more contemporary. And, for a spot of color, the red Zwilling logo is permanently embedded in one side. Like all premium knives from Zwillings J.A. Henckels, the upscale partner of Henckels International, the Twin Signature blades are Friodur ice-hardened, made from high-carbon, no-stain steel, and are laser-sharpened for a durable edge. Stamped rather than forged, the knives do not feature bolsters, which makes them lighter than most.
This 19-piece set includes just about every knife a home chef could want, as well as a set of eight steak knives (non-serrated), 2.5-Inch peeler, 4-Inch parer, 4.5-Inch utility, 5-Inch serrated utility, 6-Inch utility, 8-Inch chef, 7-Inch Santoku hollow edge, 8-Inch bread knife, kitchen shears, 9-Inch sharpening steel, bamboo storage block and (8) steak knives. Made in Germany, the knives are covered by a lifetime warranty, and, while dishwasher-safe, Henckels recommends all fine knives should be washed and dried by hand immediately after use. –Ann Bieri
