Whether you’re chopping vegetables or dicing meat the knives in this block set make short work of all types of food, allowing you to cook quality meals in your kitchen.

My favourite feature about these knives is the tangs each knife comes with, they are not just half or hollow tangs they really support the handle and allow for a balanced cut. The tangs are an easy shortcut that some knife designers cut corners on to save money however with full tangs in each knife it’s a great sign of durability meaning these were last a lifetime.

The handles

With a triple riveted handle the design of the knives included in the JA Henckel’s international forged premio 18-piece Block set are very easy to hold ensuring full control when cutting while not sacrificing comfort.
As with most knife sets these days it is not advised that use them in a dishwasher but obviously for safety reasons it’s best to hand wash these knives anyway. The reason sharp knives should not be put in the dishwasher is the detergent is very abrasive and can cause damage.

the knives are very comfortable, somewhat heavy however that is because of the full-time in each knife that over time will prove itself through durability.
They are very precise regardless of the type of food you are cutting
the stainless steel provides a very smart looking finish while the block makes storage look very clever
18 pieces mean you will never be short of the right knife despite how particular the task

Amazon reviews

with about 250 reviews on Amazon it’s fair to say the JA Henckel’s international forged premio 18-piece Block set is a popular product, it has an average of 4.5 out of 5.0 stars. Users compliments the beauty and sharpness of these knives claiming they’re the closest to professional grade knives available, one review reads “if you are after a high quality knife set this was the best bang for your buck I could find.

One problem a few buyers have noticed is that Henckel’s claim these knives are made in Germany however once opened customers report they clearly see the made in China mark which does seem a little economical with the truth.

In conclusion JA Henckel’s international forged premio 18-piece Block set is a great set of knives to help you prepare restaurant quality cuisine at home. Whether you want to cut peel or slice this set will have no problem accommodating for your needs.
