This is a Japanese chef's knife, a low-tip style with a broad blade and slightly curved cutting edge. For Asians, this knife is the same kitchen workhorse the French chef's knife is for Europeans. Its cutting edge is less curved, so it provides little rocking action, but for straight-down slicing and precise chopping, it's superb. Its 7-inch blade can be manipulated by cooks of any hand size, and its balance should please. Classic three-rivet handles distinguish Pro S from Henckels's other quality lines. Handles are smaller, a feature those with small hands may appreciate. Pro S knives this size and larger are high-tech welded to combine three steel types into what appears to be a single piece, so a knife's parts have distinct characteristics. Traditionalists insist on single-piece forging for strength, but Henckels says the invisible welds are actually stronger than the steel. While this santoku knife is dishwasher-safe, hand washing is recommended. --Fred Brack

From the Manufacturer

The J.A. Henckels Twin Professional S (or Pro S) knife series features trustworthy quality and classic three-rivet styling--it’s a line of knives admired by both professional chefs and home cooks of all skill levels. The Twin Pro S line contains knives for all tasks, including the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, steak, chef’s, Granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Twin Pro S knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets, to be sure that your cutlery needs are covered.

A Reliable Standard in Knife Construction

Twin Pro S knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive-formula, high-carbon, no-stain steel under the all-new Sigmaforge standard. As a result, Twin Pro S knives have improved quality consistency, lasting sharpness, and perfect geometry. Sigmaforge one-piece construction also provides high precision and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness. In addition, Twin Pro S knives use J.A. Henckels’s Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

An Ergonomic Handle for Easier Use

J.A. Henckels’s Twin Pro S knives boast a comfortable, ergonomic three-rivet handle design that won’t wear against the hand and helps to provide control when doing any cutting task. These durable Novodur handles are perfectly bonded to the full tang on each knife for stability and durability. The impeccably balanced super bolster provides weight and adds balance for safer and more professional cutting.

Features

  • Sigmaforge one-piece precision-forged construction: Provides perfect geometry, high precision, and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness.
  • Laser-controlled edge: Is sharper and stays sharper longer. Has a more consistent blade angle.
  • Friodur ice hardening: Maximum no-stain properties and more blade strength. Improved resistance to corrosion and pitting.

As long as that is done I'm sure it will provide me many years of valuable service.

I love Stir fries and anything with loads of veggies and the knife makes all the chopping required for these dishes a blast!

I use this santoku knife every day. I cook professionally and my personal collection of knives is worth thousands of dollars. I have all the weird knives no ever uses, all the specialty tools that are supposed to make chopping fun. When it comes to cooking dinner for my spouse and I, I reach for this knife every time.
This knife gives you the edge shape and flexibility of an asian vegetable cleaver with the balance and handle of a lighter chefs knife. I like that. I don't think that softer veggies or butter or chicken breasts always need the heft of a 8 or 10 inch chefs knife. For all-purpose needs at home, this knife is the perfect size and weight. I would highly recommend it as a first knife for someone looking to build a home collection of higher-end knives. Then pairing knife, then chefs knife, in my opinion.
The Henckels Pro series, in general, is of good quality. Like any other knife in this line, however, the Santoku *will not* keep an edge without maintence. No knife, not even those horrible diamond-honed things, will. To keep your knife in good shape, hone it on a steel each time you use it and clean it promptly. Avoid those roller sharpeners: they will tear up your edge. Every few years (more often if the knife is used a lot) get the blade professionally re-ground. Oh, and just in case someone misunderstands: the above does not apply to serrated blades. Only straight ones.
I recommend the Santoku. In fact, I'm thinking of getting a second one: one for veggies, one for meat, so I don't have to keep cleaning my knife while cooking.

I bought one of these knives for my wife because she wasn't comfortable with traditional chef's knives, and I didn't like to see her using a pairing knife as a primary kitchen knife. After going to a few different stores and trying out different knives, she decided on the Henckels Pro S 7-inch Santoku. Although I probably would not have picked this knife for myself, I'm now hooked. Here's what I like most: (1) It came with an excellent factory edge. In fact, it was much sharper out of the box than my Global chef's knife. I probably won't use my Global much more until I can get it professionally sharpened. (2) Excellent balance and overall quality. It just feels good in your hand. This is something that everyone needs to try and decide for himself. (3) Versatility. The wide blade is better for scooping up chopped vegetables, herbs, etc than most chef's knives. It is sharp and light enough for relatively delicate work, but long and sturdy enough to handle bigger jobs. (4) Unlike traditional European-style knives, where the blade comes up against the bolster, the entire blade is exposed. This gives you more useful blade space, and is much better for future sharpening (bolsters get in the way of sharpening and stick out once part of the blade has been removed in the sharpening process). The only things I might change are that the 7-inch blade is a bit shorter than I would like, and the handle is relatively small (this is one of the factors that were best for my wife, however). The advice that I would give to anyone purchasing this knife is to please take care of it. Do not run it through the dishwasher, cut on hard glass or marble cutting boards (pure evil), or use any gimmicky home sharpening system. Maintain the edge with a high quality honing steel (a smooth steel is gentlest on the blade), and sharpen only occasionally by someone who knows what they're doing.

After years and years of complaining, swearing, bleeding and nicksbecause of knives that didn't keep their edge, salvation at last! Myfamily and I decided to treat ourselves with a gift of really top quality knives, and knowing that good knives can cost a bundle planned to settle for just two or three.
We had learned that Henckels was supposed to be among the very best, and to our good fortune read that just at the right time they were running their annual warehouse sale nearby. We were unprepared for what we found - tables and tables of every variety of knife one could think of. Again, to our good fortune, we located a very helpful employee who steered us in the right direction.
To begin with, Henckels makes a variety of qualities, and we chose the top of the line. We were told that these knives are hand-made and ice-hardened (whatever that signifies). Even after that choice, we were faced with another decision. There were three knives at this same level of quality and workmanship, the only difference being in the way each was balanced. The Professional chef's knife was the one that I felt most comfortable with, but who can tell for sure, they all felt good. We chose the eight-inch chef's knife to start with because it seemed to be the one with the most uses, chopping vegetables, and heavy slicing. I had always wanted a good carving knife, too, and we stayed with the same quality for this. These knives go for eighty dollars plus, each, retail, and we paid forty-three and thirty-nine respectively, still not cheap but a good deal.
We also sprung for a small paring knife of the same category and one lower quality bread knife. The bread knife is still satisfactory, but I rave about the others. They make what was a nasty chore into a pleasure.
