WÜSTHOF Classic 8-Inch Chef’s Knife


Best Amazon review: “This and the smaller model are the best knives I have ever had.They feel solid because they are solid. You can see the metal going through the handle and how thick it is. They hold an edge and feel very well balanced. Yes it is expensive if you are a joe six pack, but consider that your hands hold this knife and they feel a joy in its quality. I know that sounds a little fru fru, but it is true for me and to me this knife is worth owning.”

The performance matches the looks. I put it through its paces slicing some baby backs… it went through them like butter. It's the sharpest knife I have ever owned. With proper care I expect it to last many years. Would buy again.”
