Henckels’s Twin Five Star 9-Piece Knife Block Set combines the blade of the Four Star series with a new ergonomic molded handle design engineered to fit any size hand comfortably. Full tang construction is fully concealed by the smooth molded polymer handles but still provides the leverage and strength expected of Henckels forged knives.
Using the process Henckels calls Sigmaforge, the blades actually combine the best characteristics of laser cut blanks shaped by stock removal and drop forged bolsters, all from one piece of high carbon stainless steel. Only the bolster is heated and forged so that the knife blank itself retains all the original characterisitics of this advanced alloy steel. Tempering includes the cold hardening method called Friodur which increases stain resistance, blade strength, and resistance to corrosion.
The block set includes six useful knives, a sharpening steel, and a pair of kitchen shears. Two paring knives, a six-inch utility knife, and a five-inch serrated utility knife cover detail work, boning, and sandwich prep. The seven-inch santoku and eight-inch chef’s knife handle all slicing, carving, mincing, and even some light chopping. The hardwood block includes several extra slots for expansion of the knife selection, as well a row of six steak knife slots in the base of the block.
The knife set is dishwasher safe — the molded handles are permanently sealed to the forged bolster, making them sanitary and break-proof. In the dishwasher, the polymer remains colorfast. However, all of Henckels’s good knives are rated stain free, meaning they do better when hand washed. Dishwashers can gradually erode the fine polish and degrade the edge.
