Sad, but true: It IS possible to break a Henckels knife. And not really difficult! This particular knife was accidentally dropped tip-down onto a rug-covered linoleum floor:
Henckels does have a warranty for manufacturer defects, but I have a feeling dropping the knife on the floor is not normal wear and tear. At any rate, it still cuts well. But take my advice: Handle your knives carefully! Don’t try to catch falling knives, and don’t drop them in the first place!
