Craftsmanship has been a tradition at Wusthof for over 190 years. Quality and precision have always been the standard that we measure our knife by and our Gourmet line of stamped German knives take precision to a new level. Each knife in this line is cut from a piece of steel using a laser beam to make a perfect blade. The best cheese tray is balanced in its array of scents, tastes, and textures. If you have a creamy Brie, you'll want a spicy blue counterpoint and a tangy, nearly flaky chèvre to round out the board. To set out and sample the selection, you'll also need this offset blade: the 5-in. flat length makes it easy to cut neat wedges of Gruyère and Gouda, the etched sides deter semisoft cheeses from sticking, and the stepped handle makes it impossible to knock your knuckles on the cheese board after completing a slice.
Perhaps I was expecting too much of this knife; based on the reviews I read before buying I thought soft cheeses would effortlessly fall away after slicing; not so. Hard cheesed come off easily, but that's to be expected. It's not significantly better than much cheaper knives and not worth the price. At least it's beautiful and fits nicely with my other Wusthofs.
This knife is OK for cutting cheese, but it still sticks to the knife and crumbles occasionally. It is a little better than a regular thin bladed knife.
A previous reviewer complained that it was too small, but I find it a perfect size. True, it's not as big as a chef's knife, but it's for cheese, and how big a wedge of cheese are you trying to slice?! I love the elevated handle... very practical, and the cheese really does come off more easily, although the softer cheeses of course are stickier. I love Wustof knives and this one definitely would be a good addition to your collection!
This knife works. It doesn't stick to the cheese. I am very pleased with it.
For your next get-together, serve a simple cheese board instead of fussy hors d'oeuvres that just keep you tethered to the kitchen. Go to your local cheese shop or market and select a few interesting cheeses from different regions (France, Spain, England, or locally produced) and different origins (sheep's milk, cow's milk, or goat's milk). Set out with little cards identifying each cheese, and serve grapes and crackers for your guests to enjoy with the cheese.
