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.|

I have yet found reason or purpose to buy beyond the following edge products (all Henckel but bread knife excluded):
-10" chef's knife
-6" chef's knife
-6" utility knife
-3.5" paring knife
-boning knife (not filet)
-take apart shears
-Granton edge carving knife and fork
+Forschner-Victorinox bread knife (sorry, Henckel)
Ok I did succumb to buying a matching fork, but when you have guests over for dinner, it looks nicer and the fork won't wear out. Anything beyond the regular handle is higher profit for the knife company; if you are holding you knife correctly, you won't need the higher cost handles.
I use both a smooth metal honing rod and a 1200 grit ceramic honing rod ($30 from Edge Pro unless you feel like paying someone more). I use the smooth metal prior to each use; ceramic once in a while, Edge Pro once every 3-6 months and even then only the two ceramic stones (unless the edge became bent on something).
Don't put in dishwasher...stuff bumps together, other dishware thrown on top of the knife, and could damage the edge.
Use only end grain cutting boards...Read more ›
Some time ago we accidentally left it too near a burner on our electric range, and the handle melted horribly. Even so, we still use it in preference to any of our other knives including any of our other Henckel's knives. Guess what my wife will get for the next gift I buy her? Yep, this knife. Highly recommended.
I see my son and husband using this knife a lot. Husband has used it to carve small tenderloin roasts with it into lovely thin and uniform slices and carve out a roasted chicken like a chef.
A fantastic price for a handy kitchen knife that stays sharp with constant use. We do hand wash all of our knives and it does get the steel every other day to help keep that nice edge.

I have already owned this knife, it was 29 years old and not really used all that much but it broke off just before the bolster. So I replaced it with a new one. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Mark W. Forsell
This is a fantastic knife. Not a knife for heavy duty work in the kitchen but great for slicing beef tenderloin and the like. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Alex Adams
One beautiful knife. The blade comes nicely honed. I gave it a few strokes on the diamond stone (at abt. 20° angle) and I can shave with it. Read morePublished 18 months ago by DMW
