Customer Questions for Henckel
Resolved Question: What is the best store to buy J.A. Henckels International Knives?
I am buying some knives and I really like the J.A. Henckels International knives. Where should I get them?

Resolved Question: JA Henckel Twin Cuisine vs. Shun Santoku?
I have the chance to get a pretty good deal on knives, and I'm struggling. I'm right handed, with small to medium hands. I'd like a new santoku, preferably with a 7-inch blade. The store I can get the deal at (Le Gourmet Chef) has a nice JA Henckel Twin Cuisine 7" santoku with the little divots in the sides and a Shun santoku without the divots (don't know if it has any special variety name), It's about time I got a great knife, and I'm looking for recommendations! The Henckel handle felt really nice - it fit right into my palm with its curved handle. The Shun handle didn't seem as stable for me, but perhaps the blade makes up for the handle and the extra price? The store doesn't have a big selection of knives - it's pretty much either Wustoff Classic, Henckel Twin Cuisine, or Shun.

Resolved Question: Anyone had problems with Henckels Twin Gourmet?
About six months ago I bought a Zwilling-Henckels 6 inch chef knife from their Twin Gourmet series, with the new ergonomic streamlined rivet-less handle. I noticed the other day the plastic on the handle was cracking. Fortunately, the store agreed to replace my knife, but when I looked at the new knife at home, it was also cracked. Ultimately, I exchanged it for another knife from the Professional"S" series. Anyone else have problems with the Twin Gourmet series? By the way, the original knife had never been through the dishwasher and had enjoyed the utmost care. Oops. It's not the Twin Gourmet Series but rather the Twin Cuisine series.

Resolved Question: Henckels or Wusthof chefs knives?
I want to get a high quality chefs knife and I'm deciding between two. I would say I'm a serious home cook, but not professional, so you may want to keep that in mind with your advice. The two knives I am deciding between are: Bob Kramer 8" Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife by Zwilling J.A. Henckels® Wusthof Classic 8-Inch Cook's Knife Have any of you used either of these knives? Can you comment on them? Is one better than the other? Is one better for a home cook? I guess consider quality, ease of sharpening, all of that... I know that the Henckels is more expensive. And if you have any other recommendations for other knives that you prefer, that would be great too.

Resolved Question: Can you fillet meat using a utility knife? what do you think of Zwilling J.A Henckels knives?
