Excellent first entry into Henckel knives
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 5, 2022
This is my first "good knife" and I'm quite pleased so far. It trimmed a chateaubriand cleanly, and easily sliced it. I know there are more expensive/sharper knives out there, but if you're not a professional, this knife is sharp and will up the game of anyone who considered themselves an above average home cook.
I was initially upset because when I received the package it said the knife was made in Spain. On the Amazon item page it says country of origin is Germany. I wanted a genuine German Henckels knife and definitely not one made in China (based on terrible reviews) as many Henckels are. With this knife, the steel is made in Germany, but it's assembled in Spain. I decided to give it a whirl anyway, and my anger subsided when I used it. I'm getting a Zwilling (parent company of Heckels) utility knife for Christmas. Excited about that one too.
