Henckels Steak Knives Review: Henckels International Classic Steak Knife Set

henckels-international-classic-steak-knife-setBefore we get into this review it might be worth noting that there are two different brands of Henckels knives. The Premium brand is made in Germany and the International brand of knives are manufactured in other countries. So for this set of knives you might find that they are actually manufactured in Spain. The steel is also of a lesser standard than the steel used in the German made products.

What this comes down to is that the products are cheaper and the quality is not as good as the German made products. This isn’t to say that you are getting poor quality, just a lesser quality but this is reflected in the price. If you want the best you are going to have to pay for it and purchase from the German made Henckels brand.

The Henckels International Steak Knife Set is still a good quality set of knives and you will have years of use from them. The blades are sharp and you should have no problem cutting through even the thickest of steaks.

What We Like

  • The handles of these knives are a hard plastic and are triple riveted for strength and durability.
  • Most reviewers have commented that the knives can cut through even tough meats easily.

What We Don’t Like

  • This set seems a bit pricey for a set of steak knives but then you are purchasing a quality brand.
  • Some have complained that handles on these knives are a little small.
