The next set of chef knives we will be reviewing is the Ross Henery Professional Chef Knife Set. This particular set of chef knives is a step up from a knife set that may be used by a home chef and could be viewed as useful to serious home chefs and professional chefs. It is a bit more expensive but has several excellent features that make it a top seller for professionals. This set of knives is not the most expensive set of knives but compares favorably with professional knives for chefs needing an excellent set of knives but also watching their budget.
A home chef may want to look into knives that are for lighter duty than this set of professional knives. A professional may want this set of 9 knives that will provide you with an excellent set that will cover you for most uses and is definitely a durable and long lasting set of knives.
If you are looking for something a bit less expensive and all purpose you may want to check out the Wusthof Classic Chef’s Knife reviewed earlier as they come at a lower price and are also good quality. Another option between the Chicago Cutlery and the Ross Henery Professional Chef Knives are the Kai Pure Komachi 2 Knives that were also reviewed.

One mass appeal of this set of knives is that they come in a zip carrying case. Another great recent addition is that the knives are sheathed to protect the knives and prevent the knives cutting into the velcro strips. These knives are sharpened at the factory and are made of carbon steel and also are stainless steel. Because of the carbon in the knives, some users have noted that they need to wash and dry and put away quickly to preserve the shiny stainless surface.
Other factors that are attractive with these knives is that the handles and blades are melded together and eliminate dirt and food traps allowing for safety in using and reusing the knives. You also can use magnetic strips to hold the knives though this would be an additional purchase.
The Ross Henery Chef Knife Set weighs approximately 6 lbs in the carrying case. The sharpener can be used for keeping this set sharp and can also be used on any knives you have in the house.
The ratio of carbon to stainless steel makes these knives durability. Although you can put these knives in a dishwasher they will wear alot longer if you wash and dry and put away by hand after use.
These knives are great for home and professional chefs. Overall majority of 5 Star Reviews. Some difficulties with knives being stainless steel but needing to be washed and dried right away. If you are looking for a set of knives that can be used by professionals as well as home chefs these may just be the knifes for you. If you are also a chef on the go, working at restaurant popups and need to carry your knives with you this set is totally portable. They don’t have a huge price tag and are definitely value for money spent.
