One reviewer opined that the 4" and 8" blades take care of either end of the spectrum, so who needs this knife? Me. Think of it as a broad spectrum knife! I use it and skip the 4" and 8" knives. Even though the other knives are available, this is the one I go for most of the time. I also prefer it to our beautiful Santoku knife.
Another reviewer thought it too expensive. Well, not when it's my favorite knife! It's a comfortable and capable tool, with an edge that won't quit. The shape, length and weight of this slightly slimmer blade as well as the overall balance in my hand are perfect for me.
PS Update on the warranty issue. I am happy to report that Wusthoff sent me a brand new knife within 30 days with no questions asked. That is the way that I would expect the warranty for a first class company to work. My next new kitchen knife will be a Wusthoff.
When I was researching, a good number of people said that it was not multi-functional enough to be worth the price. I found that the knife definitely has some things it does better than others, but it still does a fine job cutting vegetables; the taller blade does optimize it for sandwiches and such, but does great with many utility knife jobs.
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 is the 6 inch sandwich knife. I don't find this knife to be particularly useful in everyday usage. The 8 inch chef's knife, or 4 ½ inch utility knife work just fine for jobs on either end of the spectrum. Do you really need this expensive of a knife to cut baloney? I don't.
Don't get me wrong; this is a good high quality knife. However, for the mainstream chef, I think its usage will be minimal, and thus it is overkill.
