Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Chef's Knife : Considered the multipurpose workhorse of kitchen knives, the Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Chef's Knife was designed by premiere Italian architect and designer Matteo Thun with a unique wedge-shaped blade. Germany's legendary knife maker offers the wider blade and curved bolster to improve precision, balance and comfort. Ideal for both Western circular or rocking cuts and swift Asian-style chopping, the professional-grade chef's knife is precision-forged from a single piece of Zwilling exclusive formula stainless-steel. The razor-sharp blade is exceptionally hard yet flexible for effortlessly chopping, slicing and dicing of herbs, garlic and other vegetables and hard processed meats. Backed by years of design testing, the high-carbon blade is ice-hardened for superior strength and sharpness and resists stains, chips and rust. Precision lasered for a premium angled blade, the long-life Zwilling Pro chef's knife allows for cutting, slicing and sharpening along its full edge from bolster to tip. The arched bolster supports the thumb and reduces hand and wrist stress for comfortable, controlled cutting of boneless meats or trimming melon rinds and bread crusts. Contoured ergonomic polymer handle features a triple-riveted full tang and edgeless joints for a smooth, safe grip. Virtually indestructible, Zwilling Pro kitchen knives are honed and hand-finished and dishwasher-safe, although hand washing is recommended to maintain maximum sharpness.

I bought a set more than 15 years ago and love the knives. This was a present for my niece, who loves to cook. She understands the need for a quality knife. Her mother, my sister, used mine recently and now knows why I complain about her cheap knives. This is a quality product at a good price.
