This is a classic French chef's knife, with a broad blade and curved cutting edge for rocking through a chopping task. Its 10-inch blade suits strong and/or big-handed cooks; those with smaller hands might prefer an 8- or 6-inch knife. Classic three-rivet handles distinguish Pro S from Henckels's other quality lines, TwinStar, Five Star, and Four Star. Pro S handles are heavier and its knives less weight-forward. The steel used in the Pro S line is identical to that of the Five and Four Star lines. High-tech welding of larger knives combines three steel types into what appears to be a single piece, so a knife's parts have distinct characteristics: a hard edge; a strong, stain-resistant bolster; a stain- and corrosion-resistant tang. Traditionalists insist on single-piece forging for strength, but Henckels says the invisible welds are actually stronger than the steel. While this chef's 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.

First, I'm a big guy - long arms, big hands, and I tend to favor tools that are somewhat oversized. This knife clearly fits the bill. The blade height, the handle length and the overall heft contribute to a really secure feeling. I find the Pro S handle easy to work with and more comfortable than the Gran Prix and Four Star handles.
These things said, I don't think the blades come wih a particularly good factory edge on them - I've found that even cheap stamped knives like Victorinox are better in this regard. I also find that, despite being high-carbon stainless, these knives are harder for most users to sharpen. They're slow to take an edge, in my opinion, and they hold it less time than a comparably priced knife from, say, Wusthof-Trident. You'll want to have a good steel and a good stone to keep the edge on this knife - steel it before every use, and store the knife on a magnetic rail, not in a drawer or on a block. While it's a lifetime-capable tool, you will not be able to treat this knife like a Ginsu and get high performance for very long.

This is the knife I find myself reaching for most often while working in my kitchen. Why? 1) it feels right in the hand, it is well ballanced and the grip fits my admitedly beefy hands quite well. 2)The excellent ballance makes it feel like a smaller knife in my hand, that is to say I have no touble using it even for semi-precission tasks. This makes it very versitile and I don't find myself switching knives for every task. 3) I find that a few passes across the diamond steel brings the blade up to razor sharp. Once honed on the diamond steel I can prepare meals for hours with only the occasional pass across the diamond steel to maintain the edge.

All this said, I will say that the high carbon content of the Henckels knife makes the blade quite hard and if you let the edge go entirely, you will need to find a professional to return the knife to razor sharpness as doing it yourself is very difficult.

A side note: I do not use a "regular steel" with any or my knives. They are not really intended to "sharpen" a knife but rather to straighten the edge. The diamond steel will give thes knife back its edge and does so quickly and rather gently at that.

I received this knife for Christmas. I have a thing about good quality knives. I am not a chef; but, I love quality. This knife stole my heart. Her name is Bertha and she has her own resting place in my home. Until now, my favorite did not have a name. But she was excellent and I know she feels neglected these days. I feel a little guilty neglecting her. She is only 8 inches and that is fine. Personally, I prefer a big 10 inch blade when working on meat.

Bertha is my desired 10 inches and has an edge sharp enough to almost shave. I love the weight of Bertha and I want to get her sisters sometime in the future. I also would like to purchase a wall-mount resting place for her and her sisters.

I give this knife 5 stars for Edge, weight, grip and shape. She will last several lifetimes with a little care. You will not regret this purchase.

I now have a 6", 8" and 10" in this set. I don't reach for the 10" as often as the others, but it's great when you need it. The balance is very good, which surprised me because of the length. This isn't for everyone -- the smaller sizes are more useful -- but if you envision needing a longer knife or are rounding out your collection, this is a sharp, well balanced, and well made knife.

We have many Henckel knives, all sizes and shapes. My husband loves this knife to cut pizza and larger items. It's too long for me, I prefer an 8" but if you're looking for a really long well balanced sharp knife, this is a great one!

i'm not a professional chef.
this knife is my 1st full tang knife and my 1st 10 incher.
an 8" stamped knife was what i used then.
there is a considerable difference in feel and took me a couple of days to adjust to it.
it is a well balanced knife and feels smaller than it actually is.
its heft becomes an advatage as soon as you learn how to use it.
instead of applying more pressure as you cut, use the weight to penetrate as you glide the blade.
a relax but secure grip is all you need.
but because of its length, you might want to consider a proportionately big board of which i have.
the slim sharp tip is useful for smaller things and its height at its widest end is high enough to clear your knuckles off the board.
the blade is well bowed for rocking motion.
however i do agree with the other reviewer eric, that this knife does not have a good factory edge on it.
a good whetstone and a good honing steel is a must.
i did not find it difficult to sharpen to its optimum and regular swipes with the honing steel maintains its edge pretty well.
i hone it every after use.
since it's bolster runs all the way down to its heel, i suggest that when sharpenning with a stone, start from the heel and on towards the tip, very much like how you would steel hone it.
as for the grip, well it really depends on the size of your hand and a matter of personal preference.
the only 1 thing that i feel henckels should improve on are the edges of the back of the blade and the corners of its bolster.
both the edges and corners should be rounded off for a smoother and a more comfortable hold.
i don't advise this but i used a metal file rod to round off those edges which surely made a difference.
its 9" version is another good option.
