With their own hardwood storage block these Henckels Twin Gourmet Steak Knives won’t get in the way of your kitchen work. In the table setting, you’ll get the best qualities of both plain and serrated edge styles in these combo-edged knives.
With stamped steel blades and triple-riveted composite handle slabs over full length tangs, these high carbon stainless steel steak knives fit the hand comfortably and perform well. The slender points feature plain cutting edges which can be sharpened at home, so the part of the knife which contacts the plate can be quickly restored. For heavy cutting, lean into the work with the serrated portion nearer the handle. Unless diners saw through bone with the sharp teeth of the knife, this section should be serviceable for years.
The steel in the Twin Gourmet series isn’t as stout as the older styles of J.A. Henckels knives, which are forged with thicker steel and heavy bolsters. That isn’t essential in a knife meant for dining, but some returning customers may expect all Henckels knives to be forged. Henckels’s most modern product lines use new methods to bring quality and dependability to a lighter and economical design.
Consider these knives stain-resistant rather than stainless, and don’t put them through the dishwasher if you hope to keep finish and edges in top shape. The alloy steel of these knives could blemish if washed in acid solutions or if food is left to dry on the blades. A quick hand wash and dry after use, and storage in the convenient knife block is the best approach to maintenance of this good knife set.
