Henckels Forged Premio 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 338.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sculpted handle for long use The sculpted handle on this chef's knife has made it popular for folks who spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It's a comfortable grip for many different size hands. This Forged Premio line is a handsome set of knives. Each knife is forged from German steel and made to very exacting standards. The fine edge blades made from high quality stainless steel can take and hold an edge ensuring years and years of enjoyable use. Hone them regularly. The full tang blade runs through the integrated bolster and triple riveted handle for maximum stability and durability. Dishwasher safe, but I always hand wash my knives. I like them to look new and dishwashing detergents are very hard on knives.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Just ok The knife is good until it isn’t. I had this knife and used it daily for about a year and a half when the handle started to crack. Only hand washed it, never left in sink. I think it’s a larger issue with the henckles products being made in China. Sent back to henckles only to have them take 6 months to send a new set. Would not purchase again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and amazing design. I love this knife! It is so sharp and I have been using it nonstop. The handle has a little bit of weight to it so it makes it easy for chopping and it has a nice protective tip cover. Someone told me about the Henckels brand and It doesn’t even compare to my other knives I will definitely be shopping for more Henckels bran items!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome chefs knife at a great price point I had been looking for a decent chefs knife for a while. I was originally going to get a victorinox fibrox, but I happened across this knife while shopping one day. It came very sharp right out of the box, which is a huge plus for me. I hate having to sharpen a knife before I can use it. I like that it is forged rather than stamped. I also like that it has a full tang and some weight to it. Overall I think it is an awesome budget chefs knife and would highly recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my daughter. My teenage daughter is just getting interested in cooking so I wanted to get her a good chef knife without breaking the bank. This has all the qualities that I was looking for without having to spend an outrageous amount of money. The German steel helps keeps the edge sharp, and easy to maintain. The full bolster keeps it well balanced and comfortable to hold. The full tang is also a quality feature that adds strength and durability. The rivets give the knife an authentic look and feel. My daughter's knife skills have truly improved once she started using it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value This knife came to my attention recently in a consumer ratings magazine. I had been wanting an upgraded chef's knife, and this one met my requirements of being highly rated, functional, and reasonably priced. It's the perfect balance of performance and affordability. It feels good in the hand and was perfectly sharp right out of the package. I highly recommend this knife for the home cook who needs quality without paying more than necessary to get that quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Recently received, but impressed so far This is the first knife I have owned from Henckels, a gift to me. I have owned many cheaper brands in the past. The difference in quality and sharpness is immediately noticed. The handle is comfortable and the balance is great, making it a pleasure to use. I usually have to slide the blade when cutting vegetables, but this just cuts right through with no effort at all. I will likely add additional Henckels knives in the future to replace the cheaper ones I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife ever I have been talking about henckels knives for months and as a Christmas gift I received the chefs knife to start my set. I am happy with the knife and can’t way to start buying more to make it a complete set. Right out the package it was sharp and didn’t need any sharpening. It cuts through everything like butter and the handle fits nicely in my hand. Would recommend or buy for anyone who needs a knife set when they start cooking.

Why does it say made in China? I thought all Zwillings were made in Germany.

Our J.A. Henckels International knives are made of German steel in China or Spain, depending on the style. Our Zwilling/Twin knives are made in Germany.
