You’ll see some great reviews of this knife out there. Ignore them.
There’s nothing inherently wrong with it — it’s made of decent high-carbon stainless steel and a black polypropylene non-slip grip. The blade has granton edges which help — a little — in keeping food from sticking.
There’s no heavy bolster in the middle to throw off the balance or get in the way of resharpening and it comes from a respected high-end knife-maker.
So what’s the problem? The problem is that, for the money, you can do better.
The MAC Superior Santoku is around the same price. Many people have never heard of MAC but they make excellent knives.
Both the MAC and the Henckels should be hand-washed, so keep that in mind before purchasing.
