Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star II 7-Piece Cutlery Set
Knives have one-piece sigma forged construction that provides perfect geometry, high precision and improved stability of the blade and steel structure. The laser controlled edge is sharper and stays sharper longer and has a more consistent blade angle. The Friodur ice hardened steel has maximum no stain properties and more blade strength, plus improved resistance to corrosion and pitting. Proper balance and greater strength is achieved with a full rat tail tang, while the super bolster provides weight, and insures safety and balance. Knives are non-rusting and non-staining and are hand-honed. Polypropylene handles have the stainless steel logo on the cap and are bonded for seamless accuracy. Dishwasher safe. Lifetime warranty. Set includes 3" paring knife, 5" serrated utility knife, 5" Santoku, 8" chef's knife, kitchen shears, 9" sharpening steel and hardwood knife block.

Worth every single penny! I cannot begin describe the importance of nice knives. These knives make dinner preparation a breeze! They are very sharp and the handle contouring makes it very easy to handle. I never mind chopping vegetables now! This is a MUST product for your kitchen. November 5, 2012
Four Star II I opted for this set rather then the 15 piece Four Star II block set because the steak knives in the 15 piece set are not Four Star II knives. So I bought this set and ordered the Four Star II steak knives and a 6" chef's knife as well. These are great knives!! The handles are smooth and comfortable, and well balanced. I have read reviews on line from others wondering why there aren't enough knives in some of these sets to fill all the slots in the blocks, its so you can order additional knives and have room for them in your block. Same goes here. You're going to spend a little extra $$ for these knives but you will notice the difference. January 9, 2012
awesome set of knives We registered and received this off our registry. We used this for the thanksgiving dinner we hosted and they are wonderful!! I have never used such sharp knifes. The knifes are heavy and very durable. It cut the turkey like it was butter!! I cannot wait to collect all the steak knives and the rest of the collection. I would highly recommend this set of knives...These even beat out my Pampered Chef Knives!!! November 26, 2011
Best knives I ever used My wife and I bought this set of knives about 8 months ago from Bed Bath and Beyond. We liked the knives so well that we bought all the knives in the Four Star ll collection. Now we are buying two more sets for each of our daughters. The Zwilling J.A. Henckels web site has some great videos about honing, sharpening and caring for their knives. I highly recommend these knives. I am not sure about them being dishwasher safe. We always hand wash and dry the knives so that they are ready for the next use. Good Luck with them and hope you like the knives as much as we do. October 8, 2011
