Prized possessions of professional chefs, Wusthof knives are an invaluable asset of any kitchen. Every element of this renowned cutlery contributes to its precision and ease of use. In Solingen, Germany, each piece is hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. The high-carbon stainless steel blades are hardened to maintain a sharp edge and full tangs provide perfect balance with riveted, high-impact triple-riveted composition handles.
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 have used my knife quite a few times since I received it. I love it in most every way. I have to say, I did expect the weight to be a bit heavier...other than that...it's razor sharp and does the job.
the knife is very light weight and also works great left handed. It is very precise and great for thin slicing, really like it
I ordered the knives for my adult son as I already use these same knives in my Bistro Kitchen and know them to be excellent. The price through Cooking.com was the best on the market, as I did a lot of comparison.
I ordered this knife mainly so I could try it. First, I like Wusthof knives better than any other German made knife. I was surprised at the light weight of the blade. This wasn't a plus for me because I would have liked a heavier blade for better balance. Nevertheless, this is a useful addition to the knives I use daily.
This knife is replacing several other knives in my collection. I have used it every day since I got it. It is fabulous. I highly recommend it.
Great knife love it
This was a Christmas gift for my husband who has been cooking for about 2 years. He loves the feel of the knife, the weight and balance and the ease of cutting.
This knife slices through meat and vegetables so easily and smoothly. I am really impressed by how sharp it is although I have only had it for a couple of weeks. It comes with a sharpener so I think I will be able to keep the blade sharp. The knife is not meant to chop through thick rinds and such as the blade is very thin. But used to slice or chop it is a great knife.
Premium cutlery commands premium prices!!
this knife is available for less than half of what cooking.com charges
This knife is great. It slices tomatoes without squishing them - even ripe ones! It is so good, I went out and bought one for my brother for Christmas. And I bought a rockered one the same size (easier to chop repetitively) and a 5" version. If only I had one years ago...
I finally got my Santoku knife and I love it. It's very sharp and cuts through vegetables, meat and whatever else without any effort. Since it is so sharp I'm sure to pay careful attention when slicing. It is now the first knife I reach for.
cuts through potatoes and veggies like butter. Comfortable handle, good size for everything, even chopping garlic. Not too big, not too small!
I have about 12 Wusthof knifes and this one is my new favorite. It is easy to use, very sharp and you can cut meat in very thin strips. Did I say very sharp I mean VERY sharp. Great Knife.
I really love my new knife
WOW.. what a great improvement on the
My son is a professional cook and chose this knife as a gift he wanted for Xmas. There were a few much more expensive knives he really liked but knows in his business theft is a possibility and was very happy to compromise with a lower priced but still very high quality knife. He really likes the balance and the feel of the traditional style handle
This is my favorite knife. I already have two of these and am going to buy another one since it is on sale today, as we usually fight over using these knives when we are all in the kitchen together working as a family, so the more the merrier, that is people and knives, I guess. Anyone who loves to make short order of chopping would love this knife and it feels great in your hand. Is that wierd?
The blade is sharp; the balance of it is perfect - I highly recommend this product! You won't really need your other knives.
When I decided to extend my collection of knives, this was the first new one I purchased. I love it. It is easy to handle and is very versitle. I use it everyday and was definitely worth the money. I would recommend this knife to any serious cook.

Don't you hate it when you're trying to slice a cooked potato and your knife just smushes it instead? Try using a <i>santoku</i> knife instead. Its blade has specially designed hollow indentations that reduce drag when cutting, so your knife will slice right through. Santokus are also great for cutting soft cheeses, slicing onions, and just about all your everyday chopping tasks.
