Henckels Twin Pro S Knife Starter Set A starter set like the Henckels Twin Pro S 3-Piece set might be all the knives you need for a long time. The Pro series uses high carbon stainless steel, drop forged and ice-hardened for greater strength and a long lasting edge. Whether the extra weight and strength is actually necessary can be argued, but some of us still prefer this old styling.

Taper ground blades hone easily with a steel, giving perfect slicing cuts with very easy maintenance. The knives are heavy enough that there's little flexing in use, making them good for chopping as well as slicing and paring. The eight-inch chef's knife does nearly every job in the kitchen when necessary, but for lighter carving, boning or vegetable slicing try the six-inch utility knife. The four-inch blade of the paring knife peels fruits and veggies and neatly twirls away flaws.

One small drawback to the heavy bolster is that it stops the blade of the chef's knife from completely sliding through the cut. If you're used to blades of one thickness from point to tang, this will require an adjustment in technique. Handles of this trio are also built heavier than usual in order to balance the blade weight. If possible, try out a set before making the final decision. How they feel in your hand is one of the most important factors.

Cleaning these tough knives built of stain-free steel and Novodur handles should be a simple hand wash and dry. Dishwashers could dull the edges and affect the polish, though the knives are built dishwasher safe. Handle slabs fit perfectly against the full tangs, triple riveted to make sure no gaps harbor food particles. A hardwood knife block makes the best storage system.
