Perfect addition to my wusthof set!
I have a 10 inch classic knife in a set and was really in need of a 2nd knife so my husband and I can cut things at the same time. This is perfect, and at a great price!

I love the 6” Wüsthof knife. Like it so well, bought another as a gift. For years, I had used Henkel 8” chef knife but decided to try this knife which has a better feel and control. Best part, the great price!!!

Down sized - much easier to use now
My misuse of our 8" classic chef's knife forced me to replace it. Lesson learned: You can't chop frozen corn cobs into two inch lengths by hammering the blade through the ear with a wooden mallet. You'll warp the blade and chip a chunk out of it. I should have sterilized my hacksaw from the tool chest and cut them up that way. Anyway, I decided to go with a 6" length blade this time. It is so much easier to handle and maneuver, My dicing is finer and I have better control of my cuts.

SCOTT S on Jan 26, 2019
I have needed a good chef's knife for forever and since I have more time now to focus on cooking and learning more cooking skills I thought I would purchase the right tool for the job. I read the reviews and since I am female and have smaller hands I went with the suggestions of a 6 inch blade. I can't wait to get chopping!! Oh yeah the great sale going on was also a motivation to go ahead with the purchase! I am so excited and looking forward to my prize!

Wsthof Classic PEtec Chefs Knives - Are these stainless Steel, No-Stain or CArbon steel
A shopper on Oct 16, 2011
BEST ANSWER: These are high carbon no-stain steel. No steel is truly ""stainless"", but these are as close as can be. The high carbon content means an incredibly sharp edge
8 inch chef knife

i am looking to purchase an 8 inch chef knife for my wife who likes to cook (very good at it). is there a particular brand and model you would recmnd?we looked at the victorinox and it looked nice but it was model 41620 and seemed more expensive than the one you are showing. please advise. preferably in the 30 to 75 dollar range or there about. Thanks! mike
A shopper on Feb 9, 2011
BEST ANSWER: There are 2 types of Victorinox, stamped and forged. The lower priced one is the stamped knife, cut from a sheet of stainless/carbon. It has no bolster so it is lighter in weight. Forged knives will produce a knife that has more elasticity and strength. They are ice hardened which will help a knife retain it's edge longer, so less sharpening! Go into any Sur La Table...they will let you feel and use the knives. I really think this is the best way to buy a knife. Take it for a test run first and see what feels best in her hand
How do you sharpen a PETec knife?
A shopper on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Wusthof, with the collaboration of Chef's Choice, does make an electric sharpener specifically for sharpening PEtec knives to the correct angle. As a chef, I prefer using sharpening stones and the best we have found for doing this is the Bob Kramer Sharpening Kit. They are easy to use and you can easily find instructional videos on line. Hope this helps. - Chef Ted
Where does the measurement come from?
Patsy D on Mar 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The size (ex. 6 inch) is the blade length (cutting edge) and does not include the handle.
Can't keep a sharp edge on my classic series even with a Wustof 2step hand sharpener! Help?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have to agree with Stewart S. sounds like the edge is pretty damaged. I recommend getting it professionally sharpened and then keep the edge up. I prefer a leather paddle strop over a honing steel, which in my experience has potential to do more damage than good. Pick up a cheap knife from a discount store and learn to sharpen on a stone! its a skill you will never regret learning!
What is the weight of the 10" wusthof PEtec chef's knife?
Rickey T on May 21, 2016
