5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent pocketknife, but you'll miss the screw-driver..
This classic Swiss Army knife will serve you well -- I've had mine for going on 10 years. However, this model does not have a Phillips-head screwdriver function, which I find extremely useful. If you can deal with that missing element, I'd say, buy away!
Enjoy! ... Read more

A revelation to any cook with a drawer full of stained, blunt knives, this set satisfies every basic kitchen-cutlery need in a package compact enough to keep on the counter within easy reach. The set includes an 8-inch chef's knife, a 6-inch utility knife, a 5-inch serrated utility knife, an 8-inch bread knife, an 8-inch carving knife for slicing tasks, and a 3-inch paring knife for peeling and cleaning vegetables and fruits. A 9-inch sharpening steel keeps their edges in order. A pair of kitchen shears to snip herbs, flowers, or string is also included. Everything fits snugly in the rubber-footed, solid block. The block even has two extra slots, for future acquisitions or loyalty to old knives. Henckels' Pro S knives have heavy, three-rivet handles and are less weight-forward than those in the company's other lines. Their handles are also smaller, a feature those with small hands might appreciate. While this set is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

3-0 out of 5 stars Overall ok, but not as good as I expected.
I'm like the reader from New York. I needed a good, stong set of knives so I looked at .... I saw all the great customer reivews on these knives and I ran out and bought my very own set.

Now, I'm a little disappointed. Overall the knives are ok, but not as sturdy as I expected. After only two months of use the plastic handles have scratches. The handle on the Chef's knife is loose and I just sent it back for replacement. I just received a letter from the store where I bought the knives and they are sending me back the knife so I can send it to Germany for replacement because it's supposed to be a manufacturing error. I have a feeling it's going to be harder then I thought just to get one knife replaced. As if that's not bad enough, I just noticed the handle on the kitchen shears are also not as tight as they were when I first got the set.And this is just from everyday cooking and use.

The blades are sharp and durable, so the knives aren't that bad. For the high price of these knives, I expected a little more durability, stronger and slightly bigger handles that were somewhat scratch resistant and a better replacement policy.

I've done some research into these knives and I know they are rated highly by consumers, maybe I just got a bad batch, but nevertheless, I'm not 100% satisfied with these knives and rightfully so if the handles are loose and scratched.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality
This is a very nice set of knives. I love them. They are very high quality. In case you don't know it, one of the key things to look at when determining the quality of the knife is the way the blade connect to the handle. In the case of a cheap knife, if you flex the blade you will likely see a gap between the blade and the handle. This is evidence of how flimsy the knife is, and how flimsy it can be when you are cutting something. The Henckels Pro S knives, on the other hand, are very solid. The blade itself actually forms an integral part of the handle. Notice how the silver line extends up the handle in the picture? This is a continuation of the blade up into the handle, and this makes for very solid construction. The attachment of the black portion is amazingly smooth and very comfortable. And it is very hard to even get the blade to flex. The whole knife is very solid feeling and fun to use. The sissors are great too. They are so sharp and sturdy, and easy to find since they are always stored right there on the face of the block. The biggest knife is great for cutting meets and vegetables. The bread knife is great is great for slicing french bread or bagels. The paring knife is for cutting up fruits. It is really a neat set. I've had a set of these for over 3 years. I hardly ever sharpen them and when I do it is mainly just for kicks because they don't really even need it much. I also HIGHLY recommend the matching steak knifes. We bought a dozen or so of them (I think they come in sets of 4). These are so much better than my old cheapy knives, and I know that they will probably last a lifetime. This is one of my favorite purchase ever. We even bought a set for my inlaws, replacing the set of knifes they had used for years. It is such a thrill to have a nice, high quality set of knives.

5-0 out of 5 stars These are great knives
I bought this knife and block set as a Christmas gift for my wife. She loves it. Our only disappointment was that the block was a different style than that shown on Amazon or, for that matter, on the box it arrived in. The picture showed a block with six slots for steak knives. The block we got is the one now shown in the Amazon add. Apparently Henckel made a change in their set about the same time I ordered it. We can live with the substitution though as the knive set is now selling for $50 more than what I paid for it in December 03. I would have bought the set regardless of the block design but the steak knive slots was a nice feature that appealed to me. The knives are well crafted, have a great feel, extremely sharp and we love them. There were two extra slots in the block that accomodated another Henckel knife we already owned and one other. We also love the selection of knives, especially the paring knife and small serrated knife. Some other reviewers have mentioned scratches or uneven sharpening but we've not noticed either of these conditions.

2-0 out of 5 stars Defective
The chef knife in the set I received has forging defect. The support person kept telling me that Henckels had almost perfect quality control. The knives should not have any defect. But, it did. I had to return the chef knife for replacement. The sufaces for couple other knives were scratched also. after two weeks, I did receive the replacement knife, but it didn't match the original set. I didn't bother to send it back again. Quality: poor. Support person: not knowledgable.

5-0 out of 5 stars what's the problem?
not until i read the customer reviews did i notice the scratches on the handles. as with any product, there are occasional rejects that make it to the market. but, overall i'd say the knives are well worth the money especially if you wait till they are on sale ... instead of the usual [price]. the "scratches" are grinder marks left when the bolster is "hand-finished" by a living person who is capable of mistakes. i myself find that the marks give character to the knives knowing that no two will be alike. i think that most complaintants are [people] who bought the knives to impress others as an art piece and have no intention of using them. if they did, they would notice that knives,that are used ocasionally, will become "scratched" and "dinged". maybe these people should look at cheaper knives that are stamped and tooled by a machine in order to achieve that pristine, picture-perfect look which is so much more important than how the knives perform. ...

Amazon.com Review

Virtually unbreakable, this lightweight, vacuum-insulated thermos travels to work or recreation easily, and for hours afterward, coffee, tea, or broth will still be hot. Or lemonade, iced tea, or a sports drink will still be chilled. Tapered toward the top and slim enough (11 inches high, 3 inches in diameter at bottom) to safely pour with one hand, it slips into a briefcase or backpack. Pouring is a snap--twist off the cup, which holds 6 ounces of liquid, twist the stopper a few turns and pour through a no-drip slot (there's one for righthanders, another for lefthanders) without removing the stopper. Fine threading ensures the stopper seals tightly, while the exterior has a handsome satin finish. The smooth interior cleans with sponge or cloth, and preheating or prechilling with hot or cold water is recommended. --Fred Brack ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Keeps it at temperature and in the thermos!
I have a busy schedule, so I have found myself running out of the house with my coffee in an insulated mug - keeping it in hand as I make my way to the subway, since it doesn't have a sealed lid. After about a month of this charade, I decided to buy a thermos - a coworker had given a stellar recommendation to purchase a Thermos Nissan. I don't regret it one bit. I bought the 750ml model, and it fits upright in my messenger bag - but I have also had it completely horizontal in the bag without any worries about leakage. And the coffee is piping hot! Just make sure to prep the thermos with boiling water before you put the coffee in, and you're good to go all day. This is the best thermos on the market - bar none - except maybe for their Titanium model - but that's like [$$]! Unless you're some sort of uber yuppie, stick with the stainless model and use the extra [$$]towards detailing your Volvo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great thermos for coffee or tea
When I bought this bottle I had pretty high expectations because of previously owning a similar one, and having been issued a much larger one of the same type from the Army. The Nissan Travel Companion met my expectations completely. It will keep coffee hot for 48 hours if you need it to and are leaving it full for that time. The time degrades from that to about 8 hours if you are drinking the contents. If you fill the bottle with hot water, let it sit for a few minutes, to heat up the inside of the bottle, and then fill it with your coffee, it will stay hot for as long as you leave it full and unopened. Sounds silly, but try it.

Most days, I actually want to drink some of my coffee before the day has passed and the thermos works well for that too. I make a pot (7 cups will fit) in the morning, rinse the bottle out with very hot water, and I drink my coffee throughout the day. It is very hot for most of the day, into the evening. If a cup or two remain at the end of the day, they will not stay hot into the next morning. It only works for more then a day, if you leave it completely full, and don't open it until you want to drink it.

The bottle is well made. I've had it for almost 6 months now and use it every day. I even use it on weekends so I can turn my coffee pot off. It keeps the coffee fresher and just as hot as leaving it on the heating burner.

I only recommend this thermos (or any stainless steel bottle) for black coffee, tea, or hot water. Add your cream and sugar or whatever afterwords. Vacuum bottles are not dishwasher safe and it is dangerous to put food stuffs in it because you won't be able to get it completely clean. Coffee and tea can be rinsed out without a problem.

Summary. Keeps fluids hot for up to 8 hours of normal use. Up to 48 hours of full quantity storage. Very durable and drip proof. Not dishwasher safe, and should not be used with soup, cream, milk, or sugar.

Conclusion. Is day old coffee still "day old" if it is still piping hot?

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent thermos
I bought the Nissan travel companion based on the reviews on Amazon and have no regrets whatsoever. I have been delighted with it. My friends were amazed when I told them that the steaming-hot coffee I was pouring in the late afternoon had gone in at 6 a.m. The stainless steel construction seems sturdy and gives the bottle a classy look. Plus, how often are you going to purchase a bottle that says has pouring instructions in Japanese on the stopper?

5-0 out of 5 stars great thermos!
I wanted for something on the go or for around the house. It keeps beverages hot for hours and after 8 hours, it kept it the same hotness as when I put it in!! Could even still see the steam! The cup is nice too and I haven't had a problem that I burned my self. It keeps drinks cold too which is what I wanted too. I can keep it in my car in the holder but since its so high, its not too good to keep it there so I keep in on the seat and so far no spills. It slim and I like the pouring lid so you don't have to take the whole lid off - great thermos and for $20 - a great bargain!!

5-0 out of 5 stars It was well worth it when it cost $30....
It was well worth it when this thermos cost $30, but for $20 it is a steal! I bought it out of necessity for a thermos; its usefulness and function exceeds my expectation. I keep it on my desk, and I find that coffee is still hot well into the afternoon. And it's the perfect size, holding just about half a pot of coffee.

Kudos to Nissan for an exceptional product! ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

This set places a lot of useful kitchen cutting edges within reach. The set consists of an 8-inch chef's knife, a 6-inch utility knife, a 5-inch serrated utility knife, a 3-inch paring knife, a pair of multipurpose kitchen shears, and a 9-inch sharpening steel to keep knife edges in order. It all fits in a heavy wood block with four extra slots for future acquisitions or old favorites. Except for the fully forged paring knife, the knives in this set--like other top-grade Henckels knives--are formed by a high-tech welding process that combines three steel types into what appears to be a single piece so a knife's parts have distinct characteristics. Traditionalists might insist on single-piece forging for strength, but Henckels says the invisible welds are stronger than the steel. These knife handles don't have full tangs, but they're made of tough polypropylene. Hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent starter set for the burgeoning chef
When first advised to buy Henckels by a friend and culinary aficionado, I hesitated; $200+ for a set of knives? But after purchasing this 7-piece Henckels set, I was pleasantly surprised. There are excellent knives and definitely worth the money.

I would advise you go to a store that carries most of the Henckels knife series before you purchase online. While I recommend all of Henckels' forged blades, the handles are key; there are at least 4 handle types, each with personal pro/cons depending on your hand shape and size. The four-star handles are mid-size poly; the five-star handles are similar but a bit larger and more ergonomic. Henckels also makes a "classic" handle, both in poly and wood, and also an all-metal handle.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent knife set
This is a great knife set. The knives are high quality and well balanced. The utility knife is great. After using this set for almost two years, I only have two complaints. The paring knife is a little small to cover all potential uses. Another 1/2 inch and it would be perfect. Also, the bread knife is almost useless. In addition to the fact it is the least used knife in the set, it is too short to be effective on all types of breads (varying loaf sizes, etc.). Add a longer paring knife and a carving or boning knife instead of the bread knife and this set would get five stars.

5-0 out of 5 stars No comparison...
First, I can't attest that these knives are better than similar knives by other makers, like Wusthof or Global. I did my share of research based on comments but I haven't had the privilege of using knives by other high end manufacturers. My wife and I mostly just cook relatively simple foods for ourselves.

This being said, the experience I can relate with authority is the absolute joy I've felt using the Henckels 4-Star knives over the past several months after previously being stuck with no-name, bargain basement serrated knives.

Our old knives were given to us as a wedding gift. Over two years, what had been a 15 knife set was whittled (pun intended...) down to 7 knives, four of which now have loose handles. Two of the knives in this set had blades which broke, and the others had the blade break loose from the handle since they were not full tang. Of course quality, or lack thereof, was just one major deficiency of this set. The main problem was their awful performance. The handles were poorly contoured. The blades were light and thin, would wander aimlessly through the food, and the densely serrated edges shred your food. Ingredients clung to the blades, which were so flimsy you'd continually be worried they'd break in midstroke. They also became stained over time, and showed signs of spot rusting

Why am I detailing our terrible, dollar store quality knives in such detail? Because I think it's necessary to illustrate why it's absolutely NECESSARY, if you do any amount of cooking at all, to buy good quality knives as soon as you possibly can!

In contrast with the old knives, the Henckels cut through our ingredients with authority and precision. Food slides off of them easily. Handles are solid and fit the hand like a glove. They are weighty, but they slice through the food so effortlessly, you really don't feel the extra heft. Also, because they are so efficient, you'll fly through cutting chores that take twice as long with lesser quality knives. In the end, I now get tasks done much faster but more deftly. I cut thinner, smaller, more accurately. It's a WORLD of difference!

Anyone who says that you can get by with cheapo knives and don't need 'them 'spensive knives...' is leading you astray. They can't have possibly EVER used good knives. They are advising based on ignorance. Even the simplest task is made better with our Henckels set. Do yourself a favor, pass by whatever is being hawked by the hucksters on HSN and the late night infomercials and get something with quality.

These might cost 4 times as much as lesser brands, but they will last far longer, and make your time in the kitchen immeasurably less stressful. In fact, they restore the pleasure to cooking.

5-0 out of 5 stars High quality and user friendly
The Henckels 4 star knives are wonderful. I am able to get such a good grip on these. Very happy with the set. The only difference between this 4 star set and the 5 star set is the handles. I personally liked how my hand contoured to these handles. Previously owned the famous and expensive cutco knives. These are just as well balanced. Highly recommend.

4-0 out of 5 stars It's not a bread knife
Just to clarify on those who commented that the "bread knife" in the set is too short. Technically, it's a serrated utility knife, not a bread knife and is fabulous for cutting tomatoes. The bread knife is also serrated, but is much larger...I have one myself and it's great for cutting big loaves of bread. ... Read more
