This is a REAL Henckels, not a Henckels International, which makes this a stellar price. Unfortunately this is not an overly useful knife. I'd love to get a chef's knife or a utility knife at this price. A carving knife is too long for most tasks you'd need a utility knife for and doesn't work well at chopping, dicing, etc. that you'd use a Chef's knife for either. It'll carve you a mean Thanksgiving turkey though. Its amazing what a good knife will do for the appearance for your slices.

@jdevenberg: They do have the Chef's Knife as well. It's $49, and still an incredible deal.

I also bought the matching Gourmet Fork for $15.....regular $39. Plus they will credit you $15 on your order if you invite a friend to join their site. Great deal!

@uberchurl: Yes, they are really good. My friends (especially those who understand quality and like the better things in life) really like it. They run their website with "color themes" so you know what match your home. And it only sells mid to high-end brands (like Henckels) and other houseware.

This is machine stamped steel, not forged. Quality isnt nearly as high as forged.

Yes its Henckles but is not a forged knife, which for a carving knife is not that important, but its the forged knives that are the quality expensive ones. So, this isn't that great of a deal for what you are getting even though it is a Henckles.

Ignore the knife snobs. Yes, these are stamped, but the quality is every bit as good as their forged knives. These use the same steel, and go through the same tempering process, as the forged knives. You don't get the bolster, but you do get a good knife at a lower price, because there are fewer manufacturing operations to pay for.
