The knife is well balanced and very sharp.
Louis
While the 8 inch isn't perfect for all uses, if you are only buying one size chef's knife (and most people only buy one), the 8 inch is the knife I would recommend.
D
This is the perfect size for most kitchen work, so I use it daily for chopping fruits and vegetables.

Size Name: 6 Inch
I have Wusthof chef's knives that range in size from this 6 inch up to the 12 inch Wusthof, The 6 inch seems to be the one that gets used the most for kitchen chores. Most "professional" chef's and even Wusthof sales literature call the Wusthof 8 inch cook's knife the "flag ship" of their line. Indicating that it's a "must have" for the home kitchen. Since Amazon doesn't allow price quotations in their reviews check for yourself, the difference between the 6 inch and 8 inch Wusthof Cook's knives.
For the difference, I can also buy another knife I truly feel IS a "must have" - a good Wusthof paring knife.
The 6 inch model is well balanced, sharp from the factory as are all Wusthof knives, easy to maneuver. If you're building a good knife set I recommend looking at the 6 inch Wusthof and comparing it to the 8 inch. The extra difference in price could be better spent on the paring knife. The 6 inch is made with the same high quality metal as the 8 inch too.

Size Name: 6 Inch
This high quality model with its forged blade, good weight, and full tang handle is an excellent choice, overall. However, knives need to be bought with the end user in mind. The first question--how big is your hand?--is THE critical question to answer before buying an expensive chef's knife for the average home cook. (Professional chefs trained in culinary techniques have their own needs, which will differ from the rest of us.)
If you are a woman with small to average sized hands, you may prefer a 6 inch chef's knife for most of your chopping/slicing needs. If you are a man with large hands, the 6 inch size will likely feel too small.
Our kitchen has both the 6 and 8 inch sizes. The 8 inch was a wedding gift, bought to fit my husband. I tend to use the larger one when cutting heavy or thick items, but the majority of the time, the 6 inch chef's knife is the one I reach for. (I bought that after trying to accommodate unsuccessfully to the larger size.) However, when I'm cutting something really big or dense, I do reach for the 8 inch knife.
For most people looking for quality knives, this will fit the bill. I recommend that you consider starting with this one.
A final note: Please don't put a knife of this quality in the dishwasher. If you're worried about salmonella after using it on poultry, a spray of kitchen disinfectant or of a dilute bleach solution will take care of that. (After all, you can't put the countertop in the dishwasher!) Plan to hand wash it immediately in hot soapy water, learn to use a steel properly and sharpen with a good quality sharpener as needed. In return, this knife will provide you with a lifetime of service and is likely to outlast you.

Size Name: 6 Inch
This is the perfect knife for me. I'm not a chef by any means, just a normal homemaker, and this 6 inch knife fits perfectly in my kitchen. It does most jobs very nicely and is small enough that I feel comfortable using it everyday. I use it for almost everything from fruits and veggies to all kinds of meats. The blade is excelent, and the full tang construction really adds a nice weight and balance to the knife as well as strength.
Overall, my knive of choice!

Size Name: 10-Inch
Best 10" chef on the market: the Classic line has good handle weight and nice heft, and the scales are medium enough for small/med sized man hands to use with confidence. I find the Grand Prix to be a bit on the big side in the handle dept. Where this knife is a winner is: blade profile, steel characteristics, and edge grind.
If you compare this to, say, a Henckles 10" Chef, you'll notice that the Wusthof has a deeper, rounder 'belly.'This roundness enables the knife to rock back and forth (is that 'roll' back and forth?) for dicing with *much* greater ease than the Henckles, which tends to fall to the board and need to be picked up again, again, again.
The Wusthof steel, I think, has a touch more carbon than the Henckles, and a little less Chromium. It takes a second to touch up - effort that is rewarded by superior cutting performance, with a higher edge grind. That said it is not fragile.
The Wosthof blade is slightly hollow ground, whereas the Henckles is slightly convex, which causes the Henckles to 'split' more than 'slice' hard vegetables like carrots and radishes. I've been using a 10" on and off since 1989. . . and I love it.

Size Name: 10-Inch
There are really two main competitors in the high-end mainstream kitchen knife market: Henckels and Wusthof. Those who have used both usually have a preference. My preference (and therefore bias you should know about) is for the Wusthofs.
The Wusthof Classic line is the more conservative counterpart to the Grand Prix line. The only difference, however, is the handle style. I personally prefer the Grand Prix, but this is an issue of personal preference. The balance and grip of these knives are as close to perfect as I have found. For those wondering what benefits a higher priced knife provides, one benefit is that the blade (or tang) is one piece all the way through the handle. This makes the blade much stronger, and less likely to snap.
This particular model, the 10 inch cook's (or chef's) knife, is a good knife. Wusthof offers four sizes of chef's knives in the Classic line, 5, 6, 8 and 10 inch. For most home cooks, I think the 8 inch knife is the best choice. This knife, the 10 inch, is a bit big for most jobs. The 5 and 6 inch are a bit small for bigger jobs. While the 8 inch isn't perfect for all uses, if you are only buying one size chef's knife (and most people only buy one), the 8 inch is the knife I would recommend.
Therefore, if you are buying your first cook's knife, I would recommend the 8 inch size. This is a great knife, but I don't think the size is right for mainstream users.
