Zwilling J.A. Henckels Twin Signature 19-Piece Knife Block Set
Beautiful set of knives
This is a beautiful, sharp, well-made set of knives with a good variety of sizes and functions. As others have mentioned, the slots in the block are a little large. However, this allows you to keep each knife in its sheath if you want and it will still fit it into the block in most cases. I would also rather have the slot a little larger than have the knife rubbing against the slot. The knives themselves are comfortable rather than overly bulky or heavy and have a nicely curved handle. All in all, a nice investment, especially if you can get them on sale and then the 20% off on top of that!!

Nicest Knives we've ever owned!
We had been putting up with an old set of mediocre knives for several years before deciding to purchase these twin signature Zwilling Henckels. My wife is absolutely LOVING these knives as we chop a LOT of fresh vegetables, they are razor sharp and have a nice sturdy feel. We have only had them a couple of weeks so far but we are very pleased with the set.

Such a great product
These knives slide through anything. They are amazing, I will never use anything else unless I upgrade to a nicer set of henkels!

excellent knife set but...
these knives are excellent however I do not understand why such a high priced set would include the block that neither fits the amount of knives included in the set (there are two empty slots) and also the slots for these knives are way too big - almost an inch too long. Zwilling needs to re-do the block included in this set and offer it in additional colors. Overall, the knives are worth the price but if the block doesn't look nice, one might tend to hide the knives in a drawer..

Great set - BUT....
Ordered these in the store - came in within a week. Great quality - a little disappointed the description says 8 - 4.5" steak knives and 1 - 4.5" vegetable knife. When going through and sorting everything there were 9 steak knives and the vegetable knife was not there. I contacted the manufacturer and they said the "4 1/2" utility knife is in fact an extra steak knife". It's advertised this way on the website nor is it listed this way on the the or packaging.

Favorite wedding gift!
Traded up our Henckels International to go for the "real thing" in the Zwilling Twin Signature set. Just unpacking the knifes and rinsing them off you see and feel exactly how sharp they are! Easily slice through a dry paper towel with no pressure at all! And using them on food feels great and doesn't shred everything like many knives do. Very impressed! These are a high end knife set without spending over $500 like you would buying them individually. The knife block also comes with a few extra slots for any additions like the matching cleaver or carving knives which are already on order for us!

One of my favorite wedding gifts!
We received these off our registry, and I have been using them for about 6 months now. I am not a professional cook by any means, but I do enjoy cooking and use these knifes daily. They feel nice and sturdy in my hand and are extremely sharp. I hand wash them, let them air dry, and store them in the block. What I am happiest about is this set really does include everything you need. I have no doubt they will last for years to come, and were a great investment.

Disappointed.....but read on!
I'm very disappointed......not with the knife set.....but with myself, that I didn't buy a knife set like this 30 years ago!! After much research online and multiple trips to Bed Bath & Beyond, Williams Sonoma and other stores, I decided the Twin Signature set was the best knife set for the price. A little hint.....If it doesn't say Zwilling before the J.A Henkels, don't waste your time or money! The other key is that the knives must have the two little men imprented on them as opposed to the one little single man. The single man Henkels knives are cheaply made! These Twin Signature knives are super sharp, have a great balance and a heavy duty feel to them. I cook a lot and find myself just trying to think of things to chop! Also, don't be silly and put them in the dishwasher! Just clean with soap and water, dry really good and use the steel before each use and I have absolutely no doubt that these knives will last a lifetime. The only negative thing I can say is that the knives don't really fit the block. There are two extra slots in the block, but nothing really fits like you would think. Having said that.....I really don't care. The knives are my main concern and they are great!!
