|Reviews from Wusthof Culinar 8-Inch Cook's Knife Users|
I love just about everything about my Wusthof knife. It's hard for me to say that everyone will like this knife, because attributes like weight, size, balance, and ergonomics can be somewhat subjective. But I believe that this knife is top notch, all the way from the material to the balance, to the appearance.
But something that really upsets me is that numerous Wusthof emblems has fallen off many of my Culinar knives
Just want to warn buyers who haven't seen this knife in person that this is a BIG knife. If you have small hands you may want to look at smaller knives. I have large hands so this knife will suit me fine, but my wife may find it too big and heavy for her
The Wusthof Culinar line is an all stainless steel look, rather than a black handle. Although the picture and some descriptions want you to think this is a single piece knife, be advised that the hand is a separate piece of stainless steel molded onto the tang. I personally prefer the handle of the Grand Prix and Classic, because the grip is surer for me, but this is, to some extent, a matter of personal preference. This series "looks" more professional to some
Update: 6 years later and this knife cuts like the day I purchased it. I have purchased several more Wusthof products over the years, probably the best brand of knife I have ever used. Worth the money.
You can use it from cleaning meat to slicing and serving cake.(please sanitize..) I've had my knife now for 7 years,and used it in a commercial resturant setting every day without a problem, except the servers keep taking it to cut bread
I'm thrilled to have such stunning design in kitchen utensils that I use every day. Wusthof recommends periodic sharpening on a knife steel and occasional sharpening with a knife sharpener. Wusthof knives are dishwasher-safe, but the blades can be easily banged up in the dishwasher, so hand washing is recommended.
