Didn't think so. I've never trusted something that didn't have the company's logo on it. It is a pretty handy little knife though. Decently sharp, and good at cutting stuff. So, I like it enough.

My new EDC knife :D
(Note: In these pictures, the clip is still in the tip-down position. I still haven't found the microscopic-sized Allen wrench that I need to move it to tip-up. Grr. :x)

After reading the posts on here, I feel kinda lame... I only have one of the nice old swisses, a cold steel fixed blade knife, and six throwers that I made out of some spring steel. :cry:

:shock: Such cheap Henckels... *drools*
I would be so happyprobably a little too happy honestly... if I could cut my tomatoes/other ripe, soft fruits with Henckels every day.

Good porn Faden, and even better hunting, Cat.

...whats so exciting about henckels? Overly thick blades, mediocre edge retention, and they cant get very sharp. Try more japanese/french knives,blows em out of the water. The only good line henckels has is th tin cermax. And ill amit, theyre phenominal. Some of the henckels subsidiaries are wicked good too, i.e. miyabi. Brands like Misono, Nenox, suisin, hell even tojiro's better.

I know a large number of cooks that can cut/cook pretty much everything with a $20 chinese "cleaver".

Your argument about henckels reminds me of 5.56mm v 7.62. :roll:

I prefer henckels over other brands cheaper or more expensive because it is the way I cook. I don't have much of an issue with the sharpness of my set because I take care of the edge. Miyabi and Shun look gorgeous but I don't like their feel.

Once Plaza re-opens they will have more custom kitchen knives in which I hope I will be able to see and feel more of what Epicurean Edge carries. http://www.epicedge.com/

Though on the note of what was bought, they are steak knives. As much as I love the feel of the larger GLOBAL knives the steak knives I was originally eying got kicked to the curb by a 4-set Pro-S and Cat bought a 4-set of Twin Cuisines mostly due to the sheer weight of the handles. :?

Global knives were a lot lighter than we had both expected, so that's why we didn't go for those. Wusthof we had no interest in. Henckels was the other main brand they had. Henckel Pro-S was at least heavier than Global, but the Twin Cuisines were definitely a lot heavier and felt much better in my hands because it felt solid.

Can't really recommend or suggest anything past of what was said before: go to a cutlery place and somehow try it out...
