    Twenty years, going strong.
    Aug 22, 2021

    Came to buy this knife for a friend’s wedding and realized I’ve had mine for 22 years. It’s been with me through five apartments, three restaurants, and more than one long-term relationship. It feels perfectly balanced, holds an edge well, and it’s easy to sharpen on a stone if you’re into doing it yourself. If you’re going to have one “good” knife? This is the one.

    Sleek, Sharp, and Comfortable
    Jul 14, 2021

    I love this knife. It was my first Wusthof Classic purchase and now we have 12. They are just that good. This cook’s knife is a little heavy, but it’s well-balanced and the handle feels nice in your hand. If you hone it regularly, it stays nice and sharp for a long time. If I had five minutes to save my favorite things in a fire, my Wusthies would make the cut.

    Best knife I've ever used
    Apr 07, 2021

    I purchased 3 knives a short while ago and wish I'd done this years ago. I had not been familiar with Wustof until my son worked in the kitchen area of a department store one Christmas and recommended them then but I still had my Chicago Cutlery and thought I didn't need new ones. The first time I picked up my Wustof knife I knew I would never again use another brand. Really great buy.

    Go to knife.
    Dec 20, 2019

    I've owned several brands of kitchen knives and the Wusthof Classic series is my favorite. After using the 8"Chef's knife I really like it's size and design. So much easier to chop vegetables or cut meats. The blade seems big, but after using it for awhile it is now my knife of choice in the kitchen... The blade holds an edge quite well too.

    Great knife BUT after 18 months...
    Aug 21, 2019

    Great reliable knife on an average day to day usage. After 18 months, the knifes blade BENT. Warranty procedure is seamless. Wustof customer service is accessible and friendly, WARRANTY DECLINED, offered 50% discount on a new knife(nice offer). As of today, the great knife out of reach. Overall, the Wustof COST against USAGE is AVERAGE.

    This Wusthof chef's knife is sturdy to hold, fits well in the hand even as you grip up on the blade, and cuts like a dream. Perfect balance and weight for the medium-size hand. So happy to replace my old chef's knife once and for all!
