ja henckels international elan selfsharpening 14pc knife block set review

Henckels International is one of the most famous knife makers in the world, founded in Solingen, Germany - the City of Blades. Its name is synonymous with finely crafted knives, with many of their collections designed to meet modern needs and provide excellent value. Henckels knives are crafted from high-carbon no-stain steel, using Henckels patented FRIODUR ice hardening process to ensure the blades stay sharper longer. This is why Henckels is a go-to brand for chefs and home cooks alike.

The Henckels Elan self-sharpening 14-pc. knife block set is part of the Henckels Silvercap collection, and it features a gorgeous black hardwood block that makes a statement on your countertop. The set includes a chef’s knife, 2 utility knives (one serrated and one plain), a hollow-edge santoku, a paring knife, a bread knife, kitchen shears, and 6 steak knives. It also comes with a sharpening steel and a pair of shears, all in this sleek-looking block.

This Henckels knife set is a great choice for anyone looking for an affordable, well-rounded set. It’s not as good as a full-featured, fully forged knife set like those from Zwilling J.A. Henckels, Wusthof, or DOVO, but it’s a decent set that will serve most people’s needs. The knives have a stainless steel handle, with a full tang running all the way through the entire handle and fastened to it with three metal rivets at the butt of the knife. The handles have a slight dip at the heel, providing a comfortable grip.
