One of the finest chef's knife in the world in my opinion. I bought one a few years ago and still amazed by its quality! I also have Global and Sabatier knives but this Porsche one has the best balance and weight (Which is slight heavier than the Globals). Most will baulk at the price but you have to own one to realise what a bargain this really is!
NOTE: Not to be bought by anyone under the age of 18.
Oh, and I put the 20cm up as I believe this is the best all round knife and best value. RRP £100+!

The perfect all-round knife, one of the most popular knives in the range and a great place to begin your collection.
F.A. Porsche worked alongside the famous Austrian chef Joerg Woerther to create a modern masterpiece, its ergonomic handle is just one of the reasons this knife has won countless awards. The handle of the Type 301 by F.A. Porsche is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel, and the blade is made of high-quality Japanese 301 steel. The blade of each knife is carefully sharpened by the hand of a knife master and a special grinding method is used, so the knife stays sharp longer and is easier to sharpen in the kitchen.
Please note the following instructions to ensure the knife remains in optimum condition for years to come:
- Never place the knife in the dishwasher. Hand wash and dry after every use.
- Regularly sharpen the knife using the original Type 301 whetstone. Under no circumstances should a sharpening steel be used, as it will damage the blade.
