ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Five Star 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 18.
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 Kitchen Workhorse The 8" chef knife is a workhorse in my kitchen. It is the perfect length for chopping fruits and vegetables. Five Star is an awesome line of knives. It is the same forged construction, high carbon German steel, made in Germany as the Pro knives. The handle is molded from a very durable plastic making it much lighter and comfortable. The blade is very sharp and will have excellent edge retention. Guaranteed to last a lifetime.

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
