Forged from one piece of specially tempered high-carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength, this multipurpose workhorse is perfect for professional chefs and home-cooking enthusiasts.

excellent
I'm usually skeptical about buying knives on-line. The feel is just as important as the sharpness. This knife if easy to hold and cuts very well. very satisfied.

Pretty good, but I don't think it likes me
The knife seems to be well made of good materials, for a stainless steel knife. I think it's going to hold its sharpness pretty well. After a month of use, it's doing well, and it gets a lot of use.

My only issues so far may be due to my large hands (I'm a male with XL glove size), but the natural position puts my fingers too close to the blade, and the balance is off a bit. I have nicked my finger with the point by the handle. If the handle were a bit larger in diameter and if there were a "stop" or something it would be better. I have a Victorinox 5" chef knife that has that, and it is much more comfortable and reassuring to use.

I expected the little pockets to help keep food from sticking. They don't. Maybe design is off.

Great knife
I dabble in the kitchen with my bestie who is a chef. I have a 7-piece Wusthof classic block set that did not come with this knife. I've upped my prep game since adding this to my set. I highly recommend it. This knife is nicely balanced and very sharp.

Excellent knife
I bought this knife as a gift for my husband. He loves it. And he is not easy to please when it comes to kitchen utensils and gadgets. He spends any free time he has in the kitchen, and he is quite particular about what he uses. He gave the knife a big thumbs up. Thank you, Wusthof and Sur La Table.

Great tool
Love this knife. It’s the first really good knife I’ve owned (always been a bit worried about them being “too sharp for my fingers safety ??) and it’s life changing. I no longer dread cooking dinner
