My personal theory on home kitchen knives is to have a block set that more or less serves as a decor item, but are also the knives for anyone else to use who wishes to help out in the kitchen. I think the Chicago Cutlery Insignia set, for example, would serve fine for this purpose.
In my kitchen I have a Forschner knife block set that I have had for years, and to be honest, I use these knives quite often myself, but then I also have my two Wusthof Chef knives ( an 8-inch and a 10-inch), an 8 inch Wusthof Slicer, a 5-inch Wusthof Boning knife, and a 10 inch Henckels Pro-S Carving Knife which are not part of a block set, no one else uses them, and I always personally clean and sharpen them myself.
So I am not sure where the Henckels Classic line may fall into all this. They may be too much of in between and in the end be neither fish nor fowl. I am thinking though that I may purchase the 6 inch utility knife just to see how I like it.
