The Zwilling J.A. Henckels Professional S series known as Pro S, delivers outstanding cutting performance and used worldwide by professional & home chefs. This entire collection features precision forged knives made from a single piece of Zwilling J.A. Henckels exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. As a result, the knives have improved quality consistency, lasting sharpness, and perfect geometry. In addition, the steel blade goes through a special ice-hardening process called Friodur. This process changes the molecular structure of the steel improving the cutting properties providing a remarkably sharp blade and ensures a long lasting cutting edge. Each knife is precision honed and laser controlled to assure the cutting edge is accurate along the full length of the blade. The blade is enhanced with a traditional 3-riveted comfortable handle. Made in Solingen, Germany with a lifetime warranty.

How does the Professional S compare to the Twin Four Star line?

They've got so many lines I have a hard time telling them apart.

UPDATE: Nevermind. Found an overview of their lines.
TWIN Series – Premium Brand 
1. Forged
TWIN Profection – full tang, three rivet handle, award winning
TWIN Professional ‘S’ – full tang, three rivet traditional handle
TWIN Cuisine – ergonomic molded handle with full tang
Four Star – the world’s most popular upscale knife, original molded handle knife
Four Star II – updated version of the world’s most popular upscale knife, original molded handle with a metal cap on the end  The blades are the same on all of the above one is not considered better than the other – all have special formulated steel made to Zwilling J.A. Henckels’ specifications and all are Friodur® ice-hardened, a process of heating, cooling and re-heating that changes the molecular structure of the blade for optimum no-stain features and an extremely long-lasting edge. 

2. Stamped
TWIN Gourmet – full tang, three rivet handle design, made in Spain.
TWIN Signature – ergonomic full tang, three rivet handle with Henckels logo in the handle, made in Germany.

Stamped knives are slightly lighter than forged but are still excellent cutting tools – all Henckels’ stamped knives are also Friodur ice-hardened as explained above, and use a special formula steel. In addition to the above, Henckels recently purchased a very high end Japanese factory and has started producing TWIN Asian style knives made in Japan. There is the Miyabi line which is also made in Japan. It has four series and offers true to Japanese tradition a variety of Asian knives. These are made at a different angle than traditionally used Western knives and the edges are also razor sharp.
