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.
Cuts well but seems to be overpriced.
This is the best knife I have ever used.
SMOOTH CUTTING, THIS IS THE BEST KNIFE THAT I HAVE EVER OWNED. WHEN I CAN AFORD IT, I WILL BUY MORE.....THANKS.....ML
I bought this knife as a gift for a family member after using one myself for about a year. I love my Santoku!
the best knife I have ever used.
I'm very happy with how this knive performs, very clean, smooth chopping and slicing. It makes cooking less laborious and much more fun!
I was skeptical. How much different could this knife be from the "cheapie" knives I already have. The other reviews on this website gave me the motivation to try one. I absolutely love this knife. Who knew that you don't have to squash your veggies as you cut them! I will recommend this to my family and friends. This is the perfect size knife and I find myself grabbing it for all my cutting needs.
I am totally pleased with the Santoku Knife by Wusthof. It is clearly superior in every detail and a joy to use.
This is the single best Wusthof knife and the most used Wusthof knife I own. If you only have one good knife in your kitchen, this should be the one!
Well balanced and easy to use.
Knife arrives a bit dull and needs sharpening. Otherwise,a well-balanced knife and very comfortable in the hand.
If it were any sharper and you were careless, it'd drop through the table top!
This knife is very sharp, light and well-balanced. The combination of a thinner blade than a standard chef's knife with the hollow edge design minimize drag when cutting larger items, such as slicing large onions.
Beautiful knife! It is worth the money, even though it is a bit pricy. It is razor sharp and quite dependable. I love it!
I have watched cooks on television use this knife, and it makes chopping look so easy. With this knife, it really is. I think everyone should own at least one!
I have given this knife as wedding, birthday or Christmas gifts because I absolutely love my own. This knife will save you money in the long run because you won't want to buy the prepackaged, ready-to-use, pricey veggies because you will want to bust out your Santoku and chop your own!
The weight & balance is perfect. Really great for veggies because they don't stick to the blade. Wusthof is the best.
Best all around knife in my kitchen; I use it constantly.
Nicely balanced, attractively finished, razor sharp knife. Handle is amply offset. Slight curve to the blade for mincing. Good experience with this manfacturer in the past.
Great knife! It is my first Santoku and I was not sure it would measure up to my great Wusthof Classic 8" Chef's knife, but it's just as good & versatile. A good addition to the block.

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.
