    Product description
    A good chef's knife becomes your daily kitchen companion. It's used for everything from prepping steaks for the grill to finely mincing onions, and chances are you'll reach for it every time you cook--so it better be good. This lower-priced line from Henckels is a great value: excellent quality knives with their standard lifetime warranty. There's good balance, and the handles are a shade heavier than other lines, which some cooks will prefer. The 8-inch blade length is the most practical for multipurpose use, and regular sharpening will keep the stainless-steel blade razor-sharp. It's only minimally flexible, which makes it a great choice for vegetables such as potatoes and turnips. While it's dishwasher-safe, unless it needs sanitizing after use with raw meat, it's often easier to hand wash. --Jill Lightner

    What owners are saying
    It's important to note that this knife is not made in Germany (the 4 Star, 5 Star, and Pro-S series are). I started my good knife collection with a set of 3 of these International Classic knives. I later decided to get a larger set (9) of the 4 Star series, some of the finest knives in the world. However, I prefer this chef's knife over the 4 Star one. The grip is heavier and makes the balance a bit nicer. For the paring knife, I much prefer the 4 Star one, so I wouldn't recommend the set of 3, but this knife is great. I use it all the time. If you are starting out on a knife collection, I recommend these things: -a 4 Star 3-inch paring knife (or 2 if you are lazy with clean-up) -this Chef's knife -a cheap and large bread knife -a medium sized 5-6in utility knife (good quality) -a honing steel (good quality) -a wood block to put them in (good knives should not be shoved into a drawer with other knives) -[optional]a carving set of knife and fork, if you need carving utensils (I don't much) I'd weigh the cost of these together against getting a more expensive set (if you are on a budget).
