Henckels CLASSIC 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 204.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is my go to knife for all my smaller chopping needs. Well balanced and feels good in my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size Blade This 6 inch blade is perfect for my small hands. Love having a Chef's knife that is comfortable, and not overwhelmingly large. Finally have the confidence to mince, chop, slice and dice without worrying that I will cut myself. The smaller blade gives me so much more control which is just what I was looking for. The price is also amazing. The high carbon German steel is fabulous, and the fact that is manufactured in Spain makes it very affordable. Really happy with this purchase.

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.

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 4 out of 5 by from A Great Starter Knife The only knives I ever owned before this one lost their sharpness very quickly, and ended up rusting over despite ostensibly being rustproof. So far this knife seems to be holding up really well. Its construction is solid and it cuts very easily. My hope is that it will hold up for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Feels Nice I'm new to cooking so I'm not super knowledgeable about knives but I saw this knife on a number of review lists and so far so good! It feels a little big in my hands but I have small hands and its still pretty comfortable. I also feel like it could be sharper but I might just be bad at using it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 6" is the answer The 6" chef has been a great size for my kids as they venture into cooking. It's not as large in their hands as the 8" chef or as intimidating. This one knife allows them to do almost anything. Good quality, a knife they will eventually move with them when they have their own kitchens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of best purchases so far! I’ve done an extensive research to find a great knife, forged, full tang and not from China. And this is the one! Great price, very sharp
