HENCKELS Classic Razor-Sharp 8-inch Chef's Knife, German Engineered Informed by 100+ Years of Mastery is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 431.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Henckels Knives Neither my husband or myself are professional chefs, but we cook daily for our family and entertain frequently. I bought my husband his first Henckels knife 15 years ago, 10” classic chefs knife and we still use it daily. It has held up beautifully through the years, never an issue or problem. Handle is still as strong and the knife just as sturdy as the first time he used it. He sharpens by hand before each use. Recently purchased the 6” chefs knife and expect the same life! Wouldn’t use any other knives to prepare food in our kitchen and have recently bought our son his first Hanckels knife! Top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always wanted one, now I have one! Henkels knives are the finest knives I have ever laid my eyes on it had the pleasure of using. This chefs knife is something that I have wanted for the last 10 years and my wife finally splurged and bought one. Impeccable craftsmanship, incredible edge, the balance and build beyond comparison! The knife does the work for you almost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent knife for aspiring chefs! Well balanced as for weight, taking strain off of your wrist. The knife cuts well but due to the angle of the blade needed a little sharpening for the way I like to use my knives. I love the full tang, leaving for a very sturdy knife that I don’t expect to come apart over a long period of time. I would love to review this product after I’ve used it rigorously to see how it hold up. I took some video footage but I am not sure if I will be able to upload. If I can not, follow me on Instagram where I will be uploading these videos of me testing out the knife in various scenarios @dot.o

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You will remember how good these are It’s been awhile since I had a Henckels knife - but now I remember the feel of quality ... the solidness of the handle and the weight of the steel are wonderful - I also forgot how easy cutting/chopping is with a good knife. Get one for yourself soon - think of how much time you spend in the kitchen - and pro tip - tell your husband he’s not allowed to use them outside cutting bushes ! I mean they can do it but they don’t come back to the house ha

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Knife. As someone who just got into cooking over the past year, I was looking for a high quality chef knife at an affordable price. I decided to choose this knife as I saw it got great reviews and fit my budget. After waiting a couple weeks, I finally received the knife and it exceeded my expectations in every way. It feels sturdy, solid, and perfectly balanced in your hand and is very sharp out of the box. I really don't think I could ask for a better knife. I look forward to using it for years to come and can't wait to add more heckles products to my collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut Well This knife is sharp and cuts well. And it is the right size. The knife I've used before needed a lot of power, but this knife is easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife for starters or professionals This was a Christmas present from my inlaws. Super sharp blade, didn't even have it 5 minutes before my first cut finger. Excellent on almost any cut or chop. Would highly recommend this knife to everyone.

Bed Bath & Beyond described this knife as high carbon steel, but zwillingonline.com does not mention any carbon for this knife. Is this pure stainless steel without carbon or with carbon?
