[Costco] Henckels forged diamond 17-pc block set-$129

This Henckels set looks very good to me.

The block itself is almost $40 not to mention all the knives.

Thank you OP.
In for 1. Applied $20 off $100 coupon.
I can return it to Costco if I'm not satisfied with it.

1-man brand = low-quality crap. You can get a set with all those knives at Costco warehouse for $50.

The selection of knives in the set is excellent! All very useful and not overlapping.

Too bad about the low quality. I wish Global, etc. would have set with the same selection (for a not outrageous price).

this is made in china. Not in Germany. Not worth this price.
Even with Zwilling, you have to make sure it's made in Germany not in Spain

OP can you put in the description that this is not made in Germany?

There is nothing wrong with an eclectic set, so long as they are sharp. Nothing is more dangerous that a dull knife. Look to Chef'sChoice for a good (electric is best) sharpener.

One of the top rated knives is the Victorinox 8-Inch Chef's Knife (Amazon link below). That should be your most used blade in the kitchen. If you are looking for a good name brand knife (Wusthof, Global, Zwilling Four Star), be prepared to spend near $200 for a chef's knife. I linked a good Zwilling starter set. It's on sale for $180, usually $400.

When looking for a set, don't get caught up with the number pieces. The honing steel, steaks knives, and sheers are a cheap add-on. Focus on the knives you use most.

Zwilling's website is doing 50% off all their knives right now. Good opportunity to pick up some knives if you don't want to wait til their annual sale next year.

The Zwilling Four Star 6 set is a decent value set, though the 8 set has been lower for $168.
Alternatively, the Global knife sets periodically go on sale at costco.ca. Great knives and good value, better than the four stars though a bit more pricey.

One has a bolster for safety and smashing but harder to sharpen, whereas the other doesn't. Comes to preference.

Nah, there are 1-man knives that are forged. Nowadays, forged vs stamped isn't a defining indicator of quality. The forged Henckels International knives are a good example of that. Also, Global knives are stamped, but those knives are very high quality.

Good recommendation.... I received this knife for Christmas last year and its the best knife Ive ever owned.
Slice any vegetable or raw meat like butter without any effort and can make paper thin vegetable slices.

Buy a quality chef knife and a pairing knife and call it a day.
