The 8-inch blade on this knife features a curved cutting edge and a blunt back; chopping, dicing, and mincing duties are simplified--and made safer--by utilizing a quick rocking motion on the cutting edge. Part of the popular Four Star series, the hand-honed blade is made with Henckels' Sintermetal Component Technology (SCT), which allows three different grades of steel to be combined to form a single piece, fusing together the blade, bolster, and tang. What does this mean in layman's terms? It means a strong, high-quality knife that will last a lifetime.

Founded in 1731, the J.A. Henckels company is not only one of the world's oldest cutlery manufacturers, it's also one of the most well respected, creating bestselling knives guaranteed to last a lifetime. --Kim Harwell

From the Manufacturer

First introduced in 1976, the Four Star® Series is one of the world's most popular knife lines. Four Star® knives were designed and developed in close cooperation with renowned professional chefs. The result was a fully forged knife with a unique molded handle. The Four Star® line contains knives for all tasks, and includes the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, chef’s, granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Four Star® knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets.

A Higher Standard in Knife Construction

Four Star® 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, Four Star® 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, Four Star® knives use J.A. Henckels’ Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.

It's All in The Grip:

The Four Star® series features high impact polypropylene handles that are permanently bonded to the knife blades without any gaps. These comfortable handles are break-proof, sanitary, and colorfast. In addition, the super bolster provides weight, insures safety, and adds balance.

Features:

  • SIGMAFORGE 1-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.
  • Super bolster: Provides weight, insures safety, and adds balance.
  • Full rat-tail tang: Provides a proper balance and greater strength.
  • High-carbon no-stain steel, an exclusive J.A. Henckels formula: Non-staining, non-rusting.
  • Hand, precision honed blade: Is sharper and stays sharper longer.
  • Bonded polypropylene handles: Comfortable molded handles and food safe
  • Dishwasher safe: Easy care (Although hand-washing is recommended by J.A. Henckels).
  • Full warranty: J.A. Henckels stands behind all its knives.

The balance on this knife is great. I use it for nearly every job. I had a cuisenart food processor and gave it away. I found I was faster with this knife, and there was less cleanup.
Previously I had a 10" chef's knife and its too long, the motion of picking up the heel of the blade meant I had to lift my arm too high. It just wasn't comfortable. The 6" seems too short, the 8" is just right.
You really only need about 3 knife styles, and this is one of them. (Bread knife, and paring knife are the other two.)

I gotta tell ya...this has been the best "out of the box" knife that I have used in a long time and I have purchased and used every FORGED 8 inch chef's knife from every line of every manufacturer listed here on Amazon. The factory edge was perfectly honed and sharp as a razor right from the get go. Usually I have to use a sharpening steel for a few strokes to reclaim the edge but not this one. Maybe I got lucky but I do love it dearly.
The 4 Star line has been around since 1976 and Henckels knows that we "Pros" love it for it's low maintenance, ease in sharpening, comfortable grip, sanitary design AND price. The blade is classic German in shape, a long, round curve for perfect rockin' and a good weight for heavier work (although in the mid to late '90s they went to a French shape and weight for some reason). This 4 Star can't be beat for dollar value.
This is my 5th one purchased in the last 23 years...the previous ones were all "stolen" by line cooks on the job...'nuf said.

I love to cook, and I've spent a lot of money on cookware. For some reason, however, I continued to buy cheap knives. I guess I always felt that the actualy cookware I was using was so important, that I didn't really understand how having such a good knife would improve things.
Then I got this knife as a gift from a friend who comes over for my cooking a lot. I couldn't believe what I'd been missing! The weight of the knife, combined with such an incredible blade makes 'slicing and dicing' one of the best parts of cooking! This blade has taken everything I've thrown at it effortlessy. I bought a Henkle sharpener to go with it, but it holds its edge so well I don't sharpen it too often.
This kinfe also looks great. Plus, with Henckel quality, you know this will last almost forever.
Pros:
-Holds an edge very, very well
-Solid and heavy - makes chopping so easy
-Well balanced - feels great in your had
-Henkel quality
Cons:
-I only have one! (seriously, I don't have a real con).

This knife is made of lots of good, hard steel. I've had one for the last -- let's see, how long...? 10 years. And I could easily have it for another fifty; unless you're a professional chef, you're unlikely to use up the blade in a lifetime of sharpening.
Ultimately, when you choose a Henckels knife, you need to hold them, because they make three handle styles, all of which are combined with those terrific blades. They are stainless, so they don't hold an edge as well as the old-school carbon steel, but they also avoid rust that way.
You can't go wrong with this knife.

This knife will replace half the gadgets and appliances in your kitchen if you learn how to use it properly...It will also last a lifetime. The balance is excellent and these molded handles are much more comfortable than the old riveted ones.

I bought this knife to replace a Wusthof Chef's knife (around $130) which I left behind in a church kitchen. I subsequently retrieved my Wusthof, but now--with the two side by side in my drawer-- I find that the Henkel is my go-to knife!

What I like best is the lightweight handle, combined with a balance which is a joy to use. I have small hands and for me it is ideal! It fits right in my hand and feels perfect while chopping. The handle is not as pretty as the Wusthof ones--black with silver rivets looks better to me--but functionally, I prefer this one.

It's also sharper than I remember the Wusthof ever being, even when new. It's razor sharp, to the point where I cut myself while cleaning by carelessly grazing my finger on the blade...I just didn't expect it to be that sharp.

On the price, I bought a month ago and paid $71. The price is now up to $100, and lists the standard price as $125. This knife is definitely worth $125 but if you are budget conscious it may pay to wait a while as it seems the prices fluctuate quite a bit.

I just bought this for my wife. I had looked at Al Mar kitchen knives (Gerber, a fine knife maker doesn't make any that I could find) but I bought this Henckel because of the fine reviews chefs had given it. It arrived the other day and my wife has had the opportunity to try it out in the kitchen in the preparation of two dinners. She was stunned by the difference over her old, cheap knife. This German-manufactured knife is extremely well-made, perfectly balanced, and razor sharp. And I can count on this carbon stainless to deliver up a very nice edge when it comes time to sharpen it.

I used it myself to test it out and I've got to say Henckel really pulled out all the stops on this knife. It'll handle anything you need a knife for in the kitchen...in spades. For my money this is most definitely a five-star product and I'll probably buy another one for a gift as it is truly a fine and expensive looking knife.
