Every element of this renowned cutlery contributes to its precision and ease of use. The high-carbon stainless steel blades are hardened to maintain a sharp edge and full tangs provide perfect balance with riveted, high-impact composition handles. Serrated edge makes this knife great for slicing crusty loaves of French or sourdough and even produces the perfect piece of layered or angel food birthday cake without squishing your creation.
Prized possessions of professional chefs, Wusthof knives are an invaluable asset of any kitchen. In Solingen, Germany, each piece is hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. Lifetime warranty.
Wusthof's newest state of the art technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives. This technology allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel of the knife. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees. The knives are now sharper and this refinement increases the sharpness retention because exacting angles and edges last longer than edges sharpened by hand. The result is a knife that is 30% sharper and the ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) lasts twice as long.
I am very pleased with my purchase of the Wusthof Bread Knife. I now can cut bread,rolls,bagels,even thick crust . I recommend this knife to anyone who is looking for a Bread Knife at a good value and Craftmanship.
I previously had Henckels "Twin Collection Friodur" bread knife that was barely 8" long. Beautiful design, but like any serrated knife, it was not easy to keep it really sharp over the 12 years I had it. I regularly sharpen all of my non-serrated knives on a Chef's Choice edge select 120 which works great, but it can only use the deburring pad on a serrated knife. So I was going to send it out for professional reconditioning and sharpening - but it also wasn't quite long enough to cut through the round boules I often bake, so I was looking for something a bit longer. So I bought this classic 10" bread knife instead (which IS made in Solingen, Germany - the good stuff). Very pleased with the ordering and shipping process from cooking.com - it arrived promptly and was very well packed. I could not be happier with the knife - it is SO sharp, I can cut paper-thin slices if I want to. The length is just right, it fits into my knife block, but is long enough for the round boules. The construction detail is flawless as you would expect from Henckels. The wood handle wouldn't be my first choice, but it is beautiful. It doesn't match anything else in my knife set, but I guess nothing matches - that really isn't important to me. I'd rather have the best tool for the job regardless of brand or style - and this is one great bread knife. Time will tell how the blade sharpness holds, I have only had it for a few weeks.
This knife is perfect. Have been baking my own bread and got a bread guide for cutting even slices. This knife is the perfect lenght to cut with. Wish I'd bought this one before the 8". Live and learn.
Researched to find what would be the 'best' bread knife and found overwhelming recommendation for this knife - it does not disappoint. And Cooking.com was definitely the best place to get it!
This is a great bread knife, which I bought because it was recommended by Cooks Illustrated. It is great - easy to cut bread, but it's price did make me pause before I bought it. I own other Wusthof and am always very pleased with all its features.

Remember never to store good bakery bread in plastic bags- it will ruin the crust. Instead, store in a paper bag at room temperature. If you don't finish it within a day or two, slice and put in the freezer for the next time you want toast for breakfast.
