Any recommendations on getting them sharpened? I use the Henckels sharpening tool the one you put on the counter and pull it through the slot a few times) for my Professional S knives. Is it better to take it somewhere?
In states where hunting is big, often times flea markets, gun shows, things of that nature will sharpen your knifes for a few bucks each. Also Pawn Stores often get all their knives sharpen, you could always go into one, pretend to be interested in a knife and just ask "when the knife dulls, who around here can professionally sharpen it?"
Unless you're fileting a puffer fish or doing delicate garnishing, your Henckles sharpener is fine.
Oh and just to chime in on the debate - relax knife snobs. I was a cook for 12 years and personally use Shun. But stamped blades are just fine nowadays for the average home user in this price range. Especially when buying a set.
I suggest these. They have proven to be nice sharp knives for me. However, watch the price on amazon as it fluctuates often. I ordered them at around $150 and then an hour later they were $13X something and before I could call amazon they were down to $12X something. Amazon was nice enough to refund the difference even though its not their policy to do so after an item ships.
Disregard the video review. He got a defective knife, it happens. I'm sure either Henckels or Amazon will take care of it. I would be upset to if mine snapped but, I know that manufacturing defects do happen and the price of catching them all would make the knives much more expensive. My knives have not rusted in the time since Feb 22nd of last year when I bought them, but I do take care of them and by that I mean....wash, dry and store them in the block. It's that simple...(no dishwasher!)....
Are the best knives out there? Nope, but they are great knives for the money (provided you get them at the right price) and with proper care should last quite a while.
Don't need to be sad, it's just a so so set, for the price, you'd better buy some cheap steak knife and one forged chef, one paring, and some type that you like. Costco has a set whatever brand forged, also sound nice. Even the henckels cheapest forge line, you can get some good result.
