Arguably one of the most frequently used tools in any kitchen, the chef's knife performs a myriad of chopping and slicing chores. This knife is the professional choice for dicing and bias-cutting as well. For this workhorse of the cutlery family an investment in superior quality is well worth the expenditure.
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, chefs, 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.|

So the new knife is going to be relegated to back up duty. I've reground my old knife, and even though it's lost a bit of length I still prefer it to the new version.
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.
The only negative - this couple doesn't probably appreciate how a single 8-inch knife could be so expensive. But after a few uses, I am sure they will.
He gave my partner a $100 set of Henkels knives made in China, all with wretched serrated edges. Yesterday we exchanged it for 3 Henkel "Classic" (below Pro, like this). She immediately saw the difference. Not quite Pro quality, but not the Chinese crap that insults the Henkels name.
