This is a classic French chef's knife, with a broad blade and a curved cutting edge for rocking through a chopping task. The 8-inch blade suits most cooks, though those with small hands might prefer a 6-inch knife, and those with bigger hands might choose a 10-inch one. 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 knives this size and larger 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; and 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.

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’ 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.

I am an amateur chef (in training) and have been practicing this hobby for many years. Of all the knives I have accumulated, this is, by far, my favorite chef's knife. But, as others have commented, the proper grip causes the sharp angled edge of the spine to wear into your index finger. (As do many forged knives like this) I asked a pro chef in school what they do about that, and he told me to just use a long 1" wide strip of emery cloth to round the spine. The motion is similar to polishing shoes, back and forth, holding the ends of the emery cloth down and below the knife. I posted a picture of the before and after.

After rounding the spine, this knife has become an absolute joy to use. It holds its edge very well, and has great balance. It re-sharpens easily and is very stain resistant. By the way, many people comment that they steel the knife before every use. I find that it holds an edge well enough that that's not always necessary. I steel mine about every 4th or 5th use, and then only a few strokes.

I recently purchased this knife and am overjoyed with the performance. If you don't have a well balanced professional knife you can't imagine how nice it is to work with one. I went to the local restaurant supply stores and handled several brands and sizes to see what felt best. The Henckels Pro S 8" was the best. The 10" seemed top heavy but I'm sure someone else may feel different. The blade holds an incredible edge as well. I steel the blade before each use to keep the edge in the best cutting condition.

You can spend a lot more on a knife, but you won't buy any better performance where it counts, in the kitchen. Made of sharpenable stainless with a synthetic handle that will never loosen or break apart, this knife has a nice heft and a good edge and should last most home chefs a lifetime. Give it a few strokes with the steel every time you use it and the edge will last for years without needing to see a sharpening stone.
If your cutlery drawer is full of various inexpensive supermarket blades, "miracle" knives and the like, throw them all out and buy one decent blade like this, and you may be amazed how versatile a simple, quality knife can be.

The 8" chef knife is an absolute joy to use in the kitchen. It actually makes prep work enjoyable. Chopping, slicing, dicing, etc. are now effortless. It's razor sharp and stays honed that way for quite sometime under heavy use. I am very good at maintaing its edge by hand, and its high quality carbon steel blade lends itself perfectly to this task compared to stainless steel blades. If you purchase a quality knife such as this, it is imperative that you maintain its edge preferably via manual sharpining or with an electric sharpener.

Well the pros of this knife are obvious.... great balance, extremely sharp out of the box and handle has a very nice and hefty feel to it. I maintain the sharpness with a honing steel so its great. However, when i took it out of the box, there was a nick on the side of the blade, so that against the light, the nick stood out against the smooth metallic sheen of the steel. Clearly this nick was made somewhere in the factory (at least i am told this a new knife..?). While it no way compromises the function of the knife and it is great to use, but for a knife I paid $90 for... The only other gripe I have about this knife is that spine of the knife is no designed to held onto. If you were to read any decent cookbook, they will say one of the best ways to hold a knife is not really at the handle, but at the bolster. Holding it like that, it invariably means that fore and middle finger will be in contact with the spine. Now the spine of this knife is really sharp even though the "edge" is at a 90 degrees angle. My roommate using the knife in this fashion cut his forefinger accidently ON THE SPINE. Personally I find that using my fingers against this spine produces fatigue over prolonged periods. My international classic knife that I had didnt have this problem as the spine wasnt that sharp. Still, overall, I am satisfied with the knife.

We live on our boat and don't leave the Cuisinart on the galley counter. I found that there is little reason to break out the Cuisinart unless I have a large amount of food to process. The 8 inch Pro S has stayed sharp and in the year I have owned it have only used the honing steel to keep the knife in perfect condition. Use a plastic or wood cutting board and use the steel and enjoy this fine knife. I plan to buy the six inch model soon.

This is the perfect knife to use for just about anything. It has perfect weight and balance, and makes life in the kitchen a whole lot easier (and more fun.) Even for a casual cook, it is worth the cost.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels "Pro S" cutlery is by far the most advanced on the planet. Hand-crafted in Solingen, Germany since the early 1700's. The blade is high-carbon steel, ice-hardended by Henckel's proprietary FrioDur process. The blade is then laser-honed to tolerances of less than one-thousandth of an inch. The black acrylic (?) molded handle is permanently bonded to the full tang (which is fully visible all the way around) then riveted. Not only does this create a virtually indestructible knife, it is also quite attractive. The handle is perfectly suited to how the knife should be held...even a novice can effectively use them as if by second nature. The weight is just right - not so light you can't control it, but also not so heavy that you can't work quickly. All in all, the tool feels like an extension of your own hand. The blade has a nice curve, suited to many cutting applications like dicing, slicing, chopping, etc. Cleanup is a breeze, thanks to the highly-polished blade.
Henckels may seem a bit pricy to someone who has never experienced the pleasure of their use; however, you will soon see that they quality of the craftsmanship is well worth it to pay a little extra. To sweeten the pot, they are unconditionally guaranteed for life; if you can manage to break one (and congrats if you succeed...quite impossible) they replace it. If you keep the blade properly sharpened (Sharpening Steel . . .))they last. You'll want to keep them in a block or get one of those nifty magnetic strips - throwing them in a drawer exposes their precision edge to damage.
Compared to Wusthoff, I'd say these rank a little higher. Design is more attractive, more solid feel, better reputation.
All I can say, in summation, is watch your fingers...these knives bite!
