J.A. Henckels International Paring Knives are perfectly designed for smaller kitchen tasks such as peeling or coring vegetables and fruits. 3-pc set includes: 3.5-inch paring knife, 3-inch vegetable knife and a 2-inch peeling knife. Lifetime limited manufacturer warranty. Dishwasher safe.
A good chef's knife becomes your daily kitchen companion. It's used for everything from prepping steaks for the grill to finely mincing onions, and chances are you'll reach for it every time you cook--so it better be good. This lower-priced line from Henckels is a great value: excellent quality knives with their standard lifetime warranty. There's good balance, and the handles are a shade heavier than other lines, which some cooks will prefer. The 8-inch blade length is the most practical for multipurpose use, and regular sharpening will keep the stainless-steel blade razor-sharp. It's only minimally flexible, which makes it a great choice for vegetables such as potatoes and turnips. While it's dishwasher-safe, unless it needs sanitizing after use with raw meat, it's often easier to hand wash. --Jill Lightner

I can't praise this knife enough. I have used many different chef's knives, at home and in many friends' kitchens, for decades. While this one is not the most expensive, it is far and away my favorite – absolutely indispensable to me. When I rent vacation homes, I actually wrap it up and bring it with me, such is my frustration with other knives.
I love the grip, the weight, the way it balances in my hand, the curvature of the blade, and everything else about this knife. I also love that it resharpens beautifully (I have a top-quality home sharpener). The older of my two of these knives still functions exactly the way it did when I first bought it many years ago. This new one has just arrived, and I have only used it for a few days, but i am thrilled that it appears to be absolutely identical to the first one.
This knife is also gigantic - it's the largest kitchen knife I've ever wielded, yet weight and balance together allow for very precise handling.
The knife is attractive and the grip is very comfortable in my hand and gives me good control for even dicing and slicing. This is not a "dainty" knife and it might feel heavy in your hand if you're doing a lot of prep, but that's pretty typical of a western-style knife of this size. However, the spine of the knife is oddly sharp and I cut my finger on it while rock-chopping herbs.
As with any good knife, you really shouldn't wash them in the dishwasher (even though the company says you can) and you should wash and dry it immediately after use to keep it in good condition. This is especially true if you're cutting acidic foods like tomato, which are notorious for rusting knives. Don't soak it, and don't let it air dry and this knife should serve you well in your kitchen!
