If you're looking for quality cutlery then look no further than Wusthof. This knife is as good as it gets and well worth the cost. I initially thought the 8" model might be more than I need for everyday use, but after using it for a while now, I have to say that I'm so glad I didn't go smaller. This knife is substantial in all respects. The look and feel of it is superb. There are certainly other choices for a lot less money if you're shopping for cutlery, but I assure you you will not be sorry if you make the proper investment up front with this knife. I second another reviewer here and caution one to be very careful when using, as the blade is indeed sharp and has remained so since I first began working with it. Because of that, it is an absolute joy to use. Just be sure to wash it, dry it, and put it back in its block as soon as you're done with it. This knife is serious cutlery. You'll be in love with it the first time you slice into a tomato and find you can cut it as thin as you desire.

This quality, heavy duty knife is my go-to in the kitchen. It’s a good weight with a nice grip, and I love that food doesn’t stick to it. It slices smoothly and cleanly every time. I use it for just about everything - cutting up a chicken, chopping veggies, etc. It rarely needs sharpening. I’ve found Wusthof to be a company that consistently offers quality products.

this knife has become my favorite, it holds a really sharp edge for a long time (this is in comparison the the other 5 or so high quality knives I own).
I also find it easy to use because of its size and balance (but that is a personal decision for each of you to make for yourself)

New to cooking, I needed a chef's knife. I saved some money buying a Chicago Cutlery 8" chef's knife. It was a good buy for under $30. I'll keep the knife for sure (actually, I don't know what I'd use it for unless I don't want to dull the blade of the Wusthof). As I realized I enjoyed cooking, and the prep for it, I saw the need for a better knife. This knife is so sharp, and so light, I am actually disappointed when I'm done chopping or dicing. I cannot believe a knife could be worth what I paid for this one, but I'd do it again in a second. Arrived in 3 days and I use it every day. My recommendation is to buy this one first if you enjoy cooking. You won't need to waste the $25 on the less expensive knife.

I've tried other knives but keep coming back to Wusthof, despite the fact I HATE that stupid bolster. For the price, the Wusthofs hold their edge better than any other. I like the kullens (no, the indentations are NOT grantons, which are indentations that actually extend to the cutting edge) so that's a "pro". The "con" is that I hate the 8" length. Spouse and I infinitely prefer a 10" chef's knife. We got a good price on this, and the weight is great - two more "pros". But we really, really, really want a 10"er again....!

I love this knife almost more than my 8" Wusthof Chef's knife. I don't think the granton edge (scalloping on the sides) keeps food from sticking, I just like the way it looks and how it stays sharp.

I recently purchased this knife for my son's birthday and he loves it! I have a good quality chefs knife in this price range but this knife is far superior. It feels balanced allowing it to cut very easily and smoothly. The hollow edge keeps food from sticking for better slicing and chopping of different food types. I am planning to ask for one for myself for Christmas!

This knife is very sharp in the beginning. I loved it. After using it for almost a year, the blade starts to wear. It is still very sharp, just not as sharp. I used DMT DS2E 12-Inch Diamond Steel Sharpening Rod, Extra Fine Grit to help maintain the blade, it helps a little. But not significantly, but it could be user error as well.
