JA Henckels Twin Cuisine Chef's Knife

The German company JA Henckels has been making quality knives since 1731 - soon to be 300 years.

Henckels' top quality line is called Zwilling, that is "Twins" in English, and their logo is a couple of little stick figures marching arm in arm inside a square. That trademark is etched on every blade.

Henckels knives are characterized by solid construction from high carbon stainless steel, durability, balance, and surgical sharpness.

The high carbon stainless steel means the knives are easy to keep sharp and also rust resistant.

This knife is a new design called Cuisine. the Cuisine models have a horizontal tang for balance that can be seen through the side of the rivetless molded handle. The Henckels Zwilling logo is branded onto the stainless end cap of the handle. The handle is ergonomically shaped for comfort.

Each knife features full tang construction which combines optimum alloys for each of the three distinctive parts of the knife; blade, tang, and bolster. This technology improves edge retention, balance, and corrosion and pitting resistance. The unique FRIODUR cold hardening process makes the knife extremely hard and helps it retain an edge.

The Chef's Knife has an 8 inch blade and is the most versatile knife for most uses.

The knife is top quality and really sharp. A butcher's steel can be used to keep the knife factory sharp. This is possible because Henckels grinds their blades with a straight taper, which puts the entire blade behind the cutting edge. A few strokes with the sharpening steel will easily restore the factory sharpness. The knives also have a finger guard as an integral part of the blade. This swelling of the metal makes a secure, comfortable grip for your hand.

The 8 inch chef's knife is useful for the larger cutting chores, like hard vegetables and large pieces of meat.

The one caution I would give with a knife of this quality is to hand wash the knife, dry it, and replace in your knife block or a separate drawer, rather than put it in the dishwasher with the rest of your dishes. This will keep the blade in tip top condition, and also protect you from accidental cuts.
