(NAPSA) - A company that has been on the cutting edge since its founding is now celebrating 120 years of honing its craft in America.
First available in the United States in 1883, J.A. Henckels knives continue to be a popular cutlery choice for both amateur and professional chefs. And in celebrating their anniversary, the company is offering special values on several of their popular knife sets.
For example, the 7-piece Four Star Block Set, which includes the popular 7" Santoku (Oriental-style chef's knife) with Hollow Edge, as well as 3" Paring Knife, 5" Serrated/Utility Knife, 51/2" Boning Knife, Kitchen Shears, Sharpening Steel and Hardwood Block, will be available at a substantial savings. The Four Star 4-piece Steak Set-a popular item in the U.S.-will be available at $120 off the suggested retail price.
The Four Star Series-worldwide the most popular upscale knife line-is manufactured with Henckels' exclusive SCT technology. The blades are precision honed to stay sharper longer. The knives are Ice Hardened by the patented Friodor method, allowing for maximum no-stain properties and a higher blade strength. In addition, the super bolster and full rat-tail tang add balance while maintaining weight and maximum strength.
Zwilling J.A. Henckels uses highly sophisticated manufacturing techniques and computer-aided design to manufacture products of superior craftsmanship and quality. Founded in Solingen, Germany in 1731, the company is known worldwide for its top-of-the-line knives.
The company's knives are a lifetime investment, fully guaranteed against defects in materials and craftsmanship. Each piece is meant to deliver quality, design excellence and, most important, pride and pleasure.
