Which is better Wusthof or Henckels?

Both have been making high-quality forged knives for a very long time (Henckels was founded in 1731, Wusthof in 1814). This means that Wusthof knives will hold an edge slightly better while Henckels knives are slightly easier to sharpen. In practice, you're unlikely to notice a difference.

Is German steel better?

Some steel is much harder than others. Harder Japanese knives will hold an edge better; however, that same harder steel is less durable and more prone to chipping or even breaking. The softer-steel German knives are far more durable, but won't maintain an edge for as long as the harder steel.

What is a forged knife?

A forged knife is made of a single bar of steel, which is heated and then pounded into shape, sometimes by a specially trained craftsman, sometimes by machine. The alternative is a stamped knife, in which the blade is "stamped" or cut out from a large sheet of steel, then is honed and heat-treated for durability.
