Friedrich Dick Cutlery has been manufacturing products since 1778. The Premier Line boasts perfect balance and ergonomically shaped handles. The blade, bolster and tang are single piece construction forged from X45CrMoV15 stainless steel. The 8” Chef knife is the most used knife in the home kitchen. It is simply the perfect knife for almost every task.
Weighing in at 9.0 oz,this knife is of average heft. The handle feels good in the hand and the blade came very sharp (but not as razor as one might expect). However,for the money,this is a great choice for a German-made knife.
This is a great chefs knife,a compelling value and constructed to a higher standard than similar German knives. The handle feels great in the hand,the knife is quite sharp and regains its edge well after a few strokes on the steel. A great all around value and my preferred choice if in the sub 100 to 150 price bracket.
