Product Description

The Wusthof Classic 8" Slicing Knife is perfect for carving larger cuts of meats and fruits. The high-carbon stainless steel 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.

As a longtime knife collector, I've amassed a large assortment of knives, including over 40 from the Wüsthof-Trident Classic line. I own a few carving sets and an electric carving knife, but this Wüsthof Classic 8-Inch Carving Knife is my old stand-by for carving roasted meats, poultry, and game. The reason I prefer this carving knife over all others is that it holds its sharpened edge beautifully, and it has the perfect heft and balance for my hand. For specialty carving and slicing needs, however, I do use my Classic knives with the Küllenschliff edges, such as the ham, salmon, and roast beef slicers. When carving, I pinion the roast on the carving board with my straight carving fork, then slice alongside it, and use the knife tip to carve around bones and lift off the carved meat slices. I've found that this carving knife is ideal for all general purpose carving. It's very easy to keep it well sharpened by using Washita Arkansas whetstones and honing oil or by using a Chef's Choice 3-Stage Diamond Hone Professional Sharpener. Before each use, I always hone it with a honing steel. I hand wash and dry it, as I do with all my Wüsthof knives, and keep it stored in a wooden block.

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 8 inch carving knife, is a good knife, but I find its uses to be few. For chopping, the chef's knife or utility knife are more useful. This knife is too long and thin for chopping; its balance isn't right. Therefore, this knife is really limited to carving meats. For most cooks, this is an expensive knife for a rare job. If you are completing your collection, I recommend this knife. If you are starting a collection and looking for an all-purpose knife, I would recommend the 8 inch chef's knife or the 4 ½ inch utility knife.

I have used this knife for years and now, my daughter will be able to use one just like it! It has many uses and always keeps a sharp edge. I rarely have to sharpen it. Versitility and strength.

I have a terrific bread knife that I've used for my homemade bread for the past 20+ years. I recently gave a bread machine to my son and daughter-in-law that they are thoroughly enjoying, but they didn't have a good bread knife. After reading lots of reviews on many knives, I decided to get the Wusthof bread knife, and in fact, traveled with it to Florida to give it to them as a birthday gift. They made a loaf of bread just after I arrived, and while it was still hot (usually very very difficult to slice), they used the new knife to slice it, and not only did it slice perfectly with very little pressure, but they were actually able to slice it in sandwich-thin slices, which is normally impossible. Incredible knife!!

I was so impressed with that Wusthof knife that I decided to really be good/generous to myself, and purchased this carving knife for slicing chicken, brisket, turkey, etc. Wow...cannot believe that I've lived without this knife all my life!!! Wusthof is the only knife I will purchase from here moving forward. Like most things I've purchased for my kitchen, it pays to buy the best from the start, as you generally never have to purchase them again!

My wife put out the word a Christmas time that she wanted a good carving knife. Since she does most of the cooking my ears were tuned in. I did some research in the world of kitchen knives and finally settled on the Wustoff Classic 8-inch carving knife. Most reviews I read of this knife rate it as very good on the introductory level. I don't personally have a "higher level" knife to compare it to, but this one one does it's job extremely well. The knife is very well balanced in your hand and carves and cuts meat like "budda." It's an amazing thing that once you graduate to something better you wonder why it took you so long to get there. My wife is very happy!

I ordered this for a friend who has other Wusthof knives. She was pleased with its quality and would order more.

Typical Wusthof Classic quality. Well balanced, nice feel in the hand, and cuts through meats with the lightest of downward pressure.
