Not impressed with the edge on my new knives
I received a few Henckels Twin Cuisine knives in the mail today. I have handled them many times before; love the fit, finish, feel, handling, and look of them. Everything about them seems great, except...
I figured they would come from the factory with a GREAT, wicked-sharp edge...but no, it was pretty mediocre. Don't get me wrong, there were no nicks, scratches or irregular edges, but they weren't particularly sharp. The edge of the thinner Santoku blade was better than the Chefs knife and straight edged utility knife, but it still wasn't amazing.
The good news is, since it is good steel, I can sharpen it, or have it sharpened if I am too chicken to try and do it myself (since they are more expensive than what I am used to). When I sharpen them, I am going to put a steeper angle on it.
Anyone else have similar complaints about the edge on new knives?
Bottom line, I love the knives, but was surprised at the unremarkable factory edge.
