J.A. Henckels International Classic 16-Piece Knife Block Set
Love this set!
I purchased this set based on my son and daughter-in-law's recommendations. They were registered for them last year. After 30 years of mismatched knives, decided to treat ourselves and are so happy with the way they sliced, cut and chop. I feel now like I was struggling with my other knives! Highly recommend.

We love these knives!
My husband and I added these to our wedding registry after a lot of research, and some encouragement by the staff at our local BB&B. What a great recommendation! Such a quality set of knives, but a reasonable price. Has a nice selection of the knives we really use, all in an attractive knife block. We hand wash and dry, and also use the included sharpening steel every few uses (as directed). The only downside is the shears do not separate for cleaning, so I only use them with vegetables. I have another pair I got for meats that separate for thorough cleaning.

Just purchased this knife set yesterday and added a carving knife from open stock. Did use a 20% off coupon for entire purchase. Have looked for new knife set for about 3 months and decided on this one - loved the $500 set, but out of my price range. So far, only thing I am disappointed in - on the front of the box it states GERMAN STEEL - MADE IN SPAIN. The primary knives are made in Spain but the steak knives are not - they are made in Thailand! Very disappointed that 8 of the total 13 knives are not made with German Steel in Spain.

We received these off our registry and am very happy with the final product in hand. They are easy to use and are very durable. The wooden block is easy on the eyes with its dark rich color and looks nice on the countertops. The block has 3 extra slots to add more knifes to the set and we added the bread knife with ease. Great starter nice set for newly weds who want a nice set at a decent price.

Excellent Price, Great Sturdy Quality
We received this as a gift off of our wedding registry. We wanted a high quality knife set that wouldn't cost an arm and a leg. After searching, and reading reviews, this is what we found! We are so glad we did! It comes with everything we need for our kitchen, and looks excellent. The blades are sharp and never rust. We always hand wash them and don't put them in the dishwasher like another user suggested. I love how it has other slits to add additional knives. We also got the Henckles Bread Knife that fits perfectly in this block (in one of the extra slits). I would compare this set to a Cutco knife set. Seriously amazing!

The Best for the Price!
We purchased this set about 5 years ago or more, it was one of the smartest purchases we have ever made! They still look brand new, we wash them, wipe them dry and put them right back in the block everytime! JUST MAKE SURE THEY NEVER GO IN THE DISHWASHER!!! We are now buying my son and his new wife a set for Christmas!

I had a set of Cutco knives that I LOVED for many years. They were sharp, long lasting, sturdy. We got these Henckels as a gift for our engagement party and they are just as AMAZING as Cutco knives.

Love this knife set
We just received this knife set as an engagement gift, and these knives are fantastic. We love to cook, so we'll be using these every day, and I can tell these knives will be up to the task. My future sister-in-law is a chef and she approves, so that's definitely high praise. I also like that there are extra slots in the knife block for other knives that we may purchase in the future. As other reviewers said, it's worth hand washing these knives instead of running them through the dishwasher.
