ZWILLING Five Star 6-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 62.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bkade ever! Im no pro but i was fed (no pun intended) up to my eyrballs with the cheap big bix store blade we bought. So spending twice as much and only getting one knife seemed m8nd numbing at firat, but after BB&B had it marked down 30 bucks i went for it....WOW! I seriously did not know what i was missing...i thought i knew, but biw i know. It slices perfectly, dices in a 10th of the time and just with a lil maintenance has been a oerfect knife for us. Do yourself a favor and just buy it. Now you will have no excuses for burning diner because you wete too consumed with dpending 20 m8nutes to long cutting ingredients...u know who im talking to...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome comfortable chef's knife I am a big fan of this line. The forged German stainless steel is so sharp. It stays sharp for a very long time and is easy to maintain. All signs of high quality cutlery. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable to hold at any angle. The handle material texture gives me a strong confident grip when cutting. The slim blade profile gives me great cutting results with little waste. The comfortable handle makes it intuitive to hold the knife properly so my accuracy is greatly improved as well. It is also very comfortable to hold for longer jobs making it easy to work for an extended time with little fatigue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice size chef knife The all purpose knife that is not as daunting in size as the 8” chef. This is a knife you can use for all sorts of foods, and you can slice, dice, chop or cut up your foods with this. The ice hardened forged blade will stay sharp and durable, making this a knife you can rely on for years to come. This is a much lighter weight chef knife, great for someone who may not need a German chef knife with a lot of heft, but there still is a little bit of weight from the blade, not enough for it to be heavy but to help create a nice balance. Nice longer handle for contouring to your hand for a comfortable grip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This 6" Chef is an ample sized knife for every day needs in the kitchen. Longer and wider than a prep knife this can still do the small work such as mincing and dicing but can also take on bigger items like acorn squash, leeks and onions. Forged from premium German stainless steel that has been ice hardened for corrosion resistance and exceptional edge retention. Each knife is sharpened and honed by hand. Well balanced with an ergonomic molded handle, light weight, full tang and bolster and an acute angle on the edge all together provide you with an incredible cutting experience at a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect sized chefs knife I love this knife. Traditional sized chef's knives are a little to big for me. This one is perfectly sized for my needs. The forged German stainless steel is so sharp. It stays sharp for a very long time and is easy to maintain. All signs of high quality cutlery. The ergonomic handle is very comfortable to hold at any angle. The handle material texture gives me a strong confident grip when cutting.

It is also very comfortable to hold for longer jobs making it easy to work for an extended time with little fatigue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Stars for Five Star Started off with the Five Star 5” prep knife, moving up to 8” because it will overall improve my quality of life at work. I was immediately impressed with it! With proper care this feels like a knife that with last forever. I’m using my knife 50 hours per week, so regular sharpening is a must for me. Some people say Zwilling steel is soft, I’ve not noticed that. I sharpen my knives once a week, and this one requires FAR LESS, attention than other brands I’ve used. Absolutely love these knives, sturdy, comfortable to use all day, and reliable. Look forward to future purchases!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What an upgrade! I've been using a chef's knife that I got for my grandmother for about the past 20 years now, mostly for sentimental reasons. But it was time to finally upgrade and so after reading a few reviews I selected this 8-inch chef's knife. As soon as I got home I decided to tackle a mountain of cabbage and potatoes for dinner. Holy cow was I impressed!! The blade feels really well-balanced and I love the handle, it made dinner prep go by so fast that I was a little sad that I didn't have more vegetables to cut and chop. I would buy more knives of this quality many times over!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 8" Chef knife is the work horse of the kitchen. This 5 Star chef is so comfortable in the hand and the handle is designed so that there is very little stress on the wrist during cutting and chopping sessions.

Well balanced with an ergonomic molded handle, light weight, full tang and bolster and an acute angle on the edge all together provide you with an incredible cutting experience.

Hello, I've recently acquired this knife and have a question regarding the etching on the blade. There is a small diagram on my knife with 3 squares filled in of a total 14 squares. What exactly is the purpose of this illustration? Thank you in advance!

Asked by: Black42
The grid on the blade is an internal way of tracking the month and year the knife was manufactured.

Does the Five Start 8" Chef's knife have a full tang? How about the rest of the Five Star series knives?

Asked by: O Ren Ishii
Hi, yes on the German website it says "durchgehender Erl" which can be translated as "full length tang". I don't know the shape of the tang though. I own a couple of the Five Star knifes and would say that it must be quite thick since the handle is quite have well balanced with the blade. If you wanna 100% sure just wait a few days. I'm am interested in that too now and contacted the customer support. As soon as they get back to me I'll let you know. Greetings from Germany, Sam
