I know I'm late getting to this post but in case anyone reads about these Warther knives today, they are using a new steel in their knives.

At least I know in the 9" Chef knife.  It is a relatively new steel by Crucible, CPM S35VN.  The N is for the niobium content which causes the formation of niobium carbides in the steel which makes the blade tougher and less likely to  chip.  It is not as hard as some of the new super steels, but the toughness helps make up for that.  It has a great edge retention according to Warther and Crucible.  I am getting one.

See the steel on the web site and you'll want one too.
