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.
This item was part of a wedding gift for our son and his bride! They were thrilled to receive it!
I've never had any experience but the best from Cooking.com!!!
This is a great knife! I love it!
very nice, light weight. Like it a lot.
I purchased this knife in December as a gift for the holidays. I have owned this particular Santoku knife, myself, for about two years and use it almost daily. It has become almost a replacement for my cook's knife as far as vegetables are concerned. My cutlery is exclusively Wusthof and I highly recommend it.
I do a lot of cooking on a daily/weekly basis and this is the best knife that I have ever owned. It holds a wonderful edge and has perfect balance. It is extremely comfortable to hold and use. I would absolutely recommend this knife to anyone that takes cooking serioulsly.
Excellent knife - extremely sharp. Easy to handle.
This is an extremely light, very sharp knife.
It slices effortlessly through veggy's, and meats.
My only regret is that I didn't get the set.
This is really a good knife, but I'm not sure any knife is totally worth that kind of price.
This is a well balanced knife, it's exceptionally sharp, and it keeps it's edge as well. I would recommend this knife as a must in any kitchen.
LOVE IT...BEST THING EVER MADE
I love this knife because it is so manageable. It has a completely different feel and handling capabilities from an 8 inch chef knife.
This is the best all-purpose knife that I have ever used. I received this knife as a Christmas present in 2004. Since then, I have purchased this same knife as a gift for my sister, four of my brothers (and their wives), plus a couple of friends.
I use the knife daily. It's great for chopping onions, garlic, and celery, as well as any other type of vegetable that needs cutting up. I find that I don't use my food processor nearly as often as I did before due to the ease of use.
This knife is wonderfully balanced.
I think anyone that cooks will find this an irreplaceable tool.
I love this knife. It's the best knife I've found for chopping vegetables because it's got a good, wide blade and it's very sharp.
I didn't get into the cooking game until four years ago, and I started out with a knife block set that seemed to be fine. But I did notice that cheese and tomatoes were difficult to slice unless the knife blade was extremely sharp, and that damn near meant sharpening my chef's knife after every use.
Then I got a Santoku knife.
What a difference! The little hollow edges are the key, in that food doesn't stick. What a breeze to slice through cheese and tomatoes now! Because the tip of the Santoku knife curves down it takes a little getting used to, as a chef's knife is curved up at the tip, but once I mastered that little difference everything went swimmingly. I can't recommend this knife enough----and the price was outstanding. I also highly recommend the Asian knife sharpener by Chef's Choice.
this was a gift but I already owned one so I knew it would be a great gift.
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.
The blade is sharp; the balance of it is perfect - I highly recommend this product! You won't really need your other knives.
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?
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

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.
