Henckels or Wusthof?

I am looking to get a new Chef knife, but am unsure which kind to get.  I've heard that both Henckels and Wusthof are good knives, but I'm unsure as far as how long they stay sharp, ect.  Any advide would be much appreciated.

Thanks much-

Re: Henckels or Wusthof?

Knives knives knives! Every week someone asks the same question so have a look through the posts in this section to see what evryone else thinks! Some swear by Victorinox which are nice and cheap but good quality, some others like me have some expensive Wusthof's and some prefer Globals. I have used Globals in the past but didn't get on with them so now use an 8" Wusthof Nakiri with a scolloped blade that stops food sticking to it, a 10" Wusthof cooks knife and a Wusthof pairing knife. My boning, steak, and filleting knives are all Victorinox as are my other kitchen utensils such as palette knives etc. Staying sharp is another matter as it's up to the user how they sharpen them and how they are used and waht type of steel you use. I use a diamond steel which is excellent. hope this helps but have a look at all the numerous other posts. thumbsup
