Friedr. Dick 1905 Exclusive Series 10-Inch Chef's Knife

Beautiful, Well designed knife

JVKolich

Pros: Well balanced, beautiful design, Rounded handle, High Quality

Cons: There is no pallete knife within the series

Overall, since purchasing this knife, I have not been disappointed at all.   The highlights, begin with the rounded hilt and blade top, which reduce the stress on the palms and make calluses a thing of the past.   The visual of this knife, is highly pleasing, for someone who spends 100% of their week around stainless bench tops and equipment.   The whole knife in itself is...

Victorinox Cutlery 8-Inch Chef's Knife, Blue Fibrox Handle

Victorinox Cutlery 8-Inch Chef's Knife, Blue Fibrox Handle

“I saw this knife on TV.. on America's Test Kitchen. It's not in any store in my area, yet this knife seems to be known in the commercial world as the workhorse of the kitchen.   So I bought one.. and it immediately replaced a knife I had spent 3X as much on. I understand now why so many commercial operations would use it, the handle is well formed and won't slip if wet even with oil. The...” --eastshores

Global 8-Inch 20cm Cook's Knife

“I got mine a little over two years ago as a christmas gift and I still use it every day.  An overall solid knife, nothing to write home about, but out of the box it'll cut anything you need it to, shy of large bones or something; the only major issue that you will have with this guy is the incessant need to hone and sharpen the blade to the point that it becomes annoying.  The tip of...” --NikoBleau

J.A. Henckels International Classic 8-Inch Stainless-Steel Chef's Knife

J.A. Henckels International Classic 8-Inch Stainless-Steel Chef's Knife

“I bought this knife around 2002-2003.  I am not professionally trained, but I cook all of my food from scratch for the past 10 years.  I do not own a lot of good knives, this was purchased because I wanted a good quality knife that would last a long time.  My evaluation of how the knife performs may not be great.    After about 2-3 years the handle cracked at the...” --pvtjokes

Wsthof Grand Prix II 8-Inch Cook's Knife

Wsthof Grand Prix II 8-Inch Cook's Knife

“W├╝sthof is one of the "big name" Germans for a reason, over 200 years. Their professional tier lines are all solid, and the choice may end up being just personal taste over the exact look/material of the handle. If you like this style or don't care either way, definitely worth a look. Picked up this to live in the knife block at home as the go-to Chef's blade when I found it at a good sale...” --captainbligh

Miyabi Morimoto Edition 8-Inch Chef Knife

Miyabi Morimoto Edition 8-Inch Chef Knife

“I picked up the Miyabi 8" chef's (600D) as an upgrade to my Henckels when I found it on sale and was not disappointed. Feels a bit lighter and more agile in the hand compared to the Germans since it sports a thinner blade. Sharp, and stays that way. Balance to me seems to be a little bit forward compared to where the Germans are too, so it feels like it wants to cut. Some attention paid to make...” --captainbligh

J.A. Henckels International Forged Synergy 8-Inch Chef's Knife

“I am a culinary student and this was my first knife I ever had. I loved the way the handle was shaped and loved the weight I felt in my hand. The blade stays sharp and is a great length. After just 2 years of using this knife 6 days a week, the first inch of the tip of the blade snapped off. Have no fear, there is a lifetime guarantee. This knife got me through my first 2 years of school but I...” --13krama

Messermeister Meridian Elite 10" Chef Knife

“   For the record, I do not own this knife yet, but have used it (and the rest of the Meridian Elite series), which belonged to my roommate, for the last three years.  Also, this review will be similar to my review of any Messermeister Meridian Elite series knife, as my liking of these knives is for pretty much the same reason for each.   I liked this knife initially...” --Paul Alfred

Messermeister Park Plaza 10-Inch Chef's Knife

Messermeister Park Plaza 10-Inch Chef's Knife

“The steel is high quality but this is not unique. Wusthof, F Dick and Henckels all offer high quality steel in their lines as well. What is unique is the fact that these knives have tapered bolsters which make for years of easy sharpening. Most German forged knives have large bolsters that run down the heel of the blade right to the edge. The other feature that is very nice is the edges are...” --

“ This thing is ridiculous. It is so big that there is very little control. However if you want to dice four roma tomatoes at one time it is possible!  Also a great tool for cutting brisket!! I think I might want to bring it into work tonight just to have a little fun!! ” --ChefET
