Henckels International makes essential kitchen tools every home chef needs. From steak knives to spatulas, every product boasts high quality at an exceptional value. Created in 1895 by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, this value-driven brand guarantees the same durability, design and ease of use for which the global company is known. Equip your kitchen with expertise with Henckels International.
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

This obviously isn't an issue for the average-hand-size person. I've used it numerous times, usually for cutting raw sweet potatoes - the additional heft of the blade helps it to cut through them a little more easily. I have long fingers, and my arthritis makes my knuckles pretty painful. The narrowness of the handle forces my knuckles to close my fingers very tightly, which hurts like heck in the joints. My hand issues have nothing to do with the quality of the knife, and am just referencing them for those people like me.
For the heft of the blade, a wider handle could have been used to offer more control, regardless of joint issues. I have a 10" Calphalon chef's knife and the handle is massive. A happy medium would work here. With such a skinny handle, the knife feels unbalanced in my hand.
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.
I will confess, I like Henckels. I have an old, cheaper Henckels set, as well as a knife set. My brother, who is a chef, swears by them. That said, I did not until recently have a chef knife that really cut it (pun intended).
My old knife, which I had for about four years, was a cheap Chicago Cutlery 8" Chef Knife. I got it somewhere - cheap - and it served me well, until January of 2017. We were hosting a baby shower, and I was cooking up some venison sausage from a recent hunt. I wasnt paying attention while I was cooking, and the Chicago Cutlery knife fell to the ground and the top snapped right off. I tried to use it as it was for a few days...but it was pointless (get it? Get it???).
I looked at Amazon for some decent, consumer-grade knives. I browsed all the major brands, but kept coming back to the Henckel International. Price was right, and it shipped fast. It's been a life saver. Blade is strong, no warping, no burrs or knurls. Blade also keeps a sharp, consistent edge. You're more sliding the knife when cutting, as opposed to sawing as I did with the old knife.
I'm at the point where I am ready to throw out all my old knives and switch primarily to the Henckel International set. I dont think I am going to miss any of the old knives.
Pictured: dial caliper reading showing old blade is 0.111 inches, and new blade is 0.078 inches.
I bought the 6" chef knife to supplement my 8" for quick smaller jobs when the bigger knife was a little much and I love it for those jobs.
