Product Description


Perform all of your cutting tasks with this Wustof Classic hollow ground santoku knife. Made in Solingen, Germany, it was hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. The high-carbon stainless steel hollow ground blade is hardened to maintain a sharp edge, and its full tang provides perfect balance with a riveted, high-impact composition handle. Wusthof's newest state of the art technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives and allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees, doubling the sharpness retention. This knife is backed by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty and is the perfect addition to your cutlery collection.

I've been using a Japanese Embossed knife for several years and decided to try this knife because one of my friend recommended. This knife is inspired Japanese style. My initial impression is very good. Knife slices evenly and cuts perfectly. As someone who has just upgraded his knive to a lower end chef's-standard knife, I can attest to the ease of use and durability of this weighted knife.
Always wash and dry (or hang dry- if you have on of those fancy metal magnetic strips for storing knives) immediately after your cooking as the metal can and does get brown (I'm assuming rust) spots on it easily if left whet overnight / for several hours.
Well worth the price as it halves your chopping/slicing/prep work in half time (once you master the basic knife techniques- searchable on many cooking sites/ you tube videos), personally, it's been a lifesaver for dicing onions, mincing garlic/herbs, and chopping veggies for soups and sides.

The only thing that keeps it from being 5 stars for me is that the handle could be a little more comfortable. They have put a slight edge on the grip and I'm aware of it rubbing on my palm while using. The blade is really handling the big chores very well.

I have been using the Wusthof Santoku Knife for several months. It has a good balance and feel. You are able to slice and dice like a Pro. The blade is thin but still ridgid enough to cut and slice straight, allowing very thin slices. It cuts meat very well and is very, very sharp. The edge is ground to a very narrow angle. Looks to be about 7 to 10 degrees. The shallow edge angle is what allows it to be so sharp. Due to the very thin edge of the blade, it should not be used for chooping or heavy duty cutting. The steel used is excellent and holds its edge forever. I touch it up ocassionaly with a ceramic sharpener. It only takes a couple of swipes with the cerramic. I think it is as sharp now as the day I received it. The dropped point is a great design. I use the back of the point to scrape garbage off of the cutting board.

Over time, I've discovered buying the right quality items once is far better than buying sub-standard junk 4 or 5 times. Hence, my search for the right "general use" knife for my kitchen.

I cook alot of stir fry - sometimes 3 or 4 times a week. This means a fair amount of cutting, dicing and chopping of many different items from hard and soft vegetables to beef, pork or chicken. For many years, I struggled with cheap knives I had either received as a wedding present or bought from a large department store. In the end, I was sawing the food rather than cutting it; it was a chore rather than a pleasureable part of the cooking process. I decided to bite the bullet and buy the last knife I would need.

During my search, I discovered a few things you may find helpful:

- understand what you do in the kitchen and only buy what you need. It's easy to get sucked into buying a full set of 8, 10 or 12 knives. You don't have to think about it and voila! - everything's there. Granted, you will save money, but I contend you'll end up with knives you don't need. I strongly recommend buying knives separately as you discover you just can't do without that XYZ knife. Ex: I bought the 7" Classic Hollow Santoku and a small classic paring knife as a set. I found a I need a smaller utility knife for cutting sandwiches, etc... and purchased a Classic 5" knife. I can accomplish 99% of my cutting tasks with these 3 knives.

- Your first knife should be either a Santoku or Chef's knife. These knives are the workhorses of the kitchen and will be used for a majority of your cutting tasks. Once purchased and used for awhile, you can better determine what will make your life easier and go after that.

- "Handle" the knives.

One trend that has eventually made it's way to home chef's is that it's OK TO MIX KNIVES! German , French, Japanese STYLE all have they're champions and advantages for various cutting and chopping jobs. Despite what you see on TV shows, you'll actually find very few professionals who have all German or all Oriental style knives. And don't tell the kitchen snobs, but it's OK to mix BRANDS too! Buy what feels good, what costs right and how often you'll use it.
The Wusthof Classic 7-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife combines several ideas that combined, make slicing vegetables into precise pieces. This looks nice, but also lets the food all cook at a quick and similar amount of time. Be aware that a Santoku knife is NOT MADE TO CHOP THROUGH BONES or frozen foods! Despite a small similarity, that is best left to a Cleaver.
The high "wall" of the knife blade makes for quick slicing and chopping. The identations or "kullens" reduce friction and suction, preventing food from sticking to the side of the blade.
The Wüsthof Classic 7-Inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is just slightly bowed to facilitate the rocking motion needed for what this knife is made to do.
Also realize that with the intermingling of knife designs one Santoku is not EXACTLY like another. Compare any knife design before purchase! And don't feel bad if you end up with a few from the Big Boys, and even a few left over from your grandmother!
I enjoy knives. I know alot about em. BUT especially enjoy USING knives. I do that mostly in the kitchen like everyone else.
This is a purchase I'm happy with!
