Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Chef's Knives

With this knife in hand, you can chop, slice and mince your way through extended cutting tasks without fatigue. Our new Zwilling Pro collection offers ultimate comfort, security and precision in the hand, thanks to a special arched bolster designed by architect Matteo Thun that promotes a perfect thumb grip. A contoured ergonomic handle enhances your comfort. Each knife is precision forged using Zwilling's Sigmaforge process, resulting in an exceptionally hard yet flexible blade. Zwilling's Friodur ice-hardening technique results in a harder, sharper blade that is corrosion resistant and highly elastic. Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the optimal cutting angle for maximum sharpness. Arched bolster perfectly supports the thumb for ultimate comfort, safety and precise handling. Also allows the full length of the edge to be sharpened, from tip to end. The sleek ABS resin handle is triple riveted to the blade and contoured for a secure, comfortable grip. 8" knife: 8"-long blade, 5 1/2"-long handle; 9 oz. 10" knife: 10"-long blade, 5 1/2"-long handle; 10 oz. Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels since 1731.

A better than average chef's knife
February 14, 2012
How much you like this knife will depend on your experience and expectations. If you've never used a great knife and you compare it to the average knife you'd find at a mass merchandizer you'll probably be thrilled. It's razor-sharp, sturdy, holds an edge, is comfortable to hold for long periods, and has a wide blade that's great for scooping up what you've chopped.
What it lacks is the subtle balance and refinements in the curve of the blade and handle that would make it a GREAT knife. Also keep in mind that this particular knife is currently available only from Williams-Sonoma. It has the handle of the older TWIN Pro-S line mated to the blade and bolster of the new TWIN Profection line.
In short, it's worth the price but there are better knives available for only a bit more money. I exchanged it for Wusthof 8" Classic Ikon which I find delightful. Try before you buy, though. You may feel differently.
Pros: Durable, Quality, Size, Strength, Sharpness
Cons: Weight, foods such as potatoes may stick during slicing
