J.A. Henckels Twin Select Knife BlockAlong with the high-tech Twin Select knives in this 7-piece Block Set, Henckels gives the home chef room to expand with four unused slots and a space for kitchen shears in the oval granite-finished hardwood block. Three different grades of high carbon stainless steel welded seamlessly together create blades, bolsters, and handles of the knives in the Twin Select series, only a few of which are included here. Those selected for this assortment cover a full range of common kitchen tasks, without the duplication usually found in small knife block collections. Instead of two paring knives or two utility knives, the Twin Select 7-piece set includes one of each, along with an 8-inch carving knife for meat and poultry, an 8-inch bread knife for pastries, an 8-inch chef's knife for slicing and light chopping, and a 10-inch sharpening steel.

All-metal knives might seem cold and uncomfortable, but the flowing shape of these handles fit the hand nicely. Bolsters act as finger guards, and there's no tendency to slip. Completely sealed metal gives germs and food particles no hiding place, making cleanup simple whether you run them through a dishwasher or choose the kinder method of hand washing. The Twin Select knives will survive the rough environment of dishwashing machines, but cutting edges will be at risk, and the high polish may gradually erode. Washing by hand in a mild unscented detergent -- lemon fragrances could etch the metal -- extends both shine and edge lifetime.

Touch up the plain edges of the flat ground blades quickly with the honing steel provided. The serrated bread knife might eventually need re-working by a professional. Empty slots in the wood block will come in very handy, for favorite knives you already own and for the ones you'll acquire.
