I've been debating how to rate this.
If you love Santoku's I'm guessing this is a five star vs other brands
If you are debating chef vs Santoku, then I'd say the chef wins out for me and this is four stars.

The bamboo board is nice and of courses needed oiling but it wasn't bone dry. It has feet on the back so it's not two sided. It has branding which means it may not be a great photograph board but your call on that.

I purchased because it was the same price as the santoku alone.

I'm impressed with the sharpness. Wusthof are the first sharp knives I've purchased and based on reviews, these are the knives to get if you're going to cook western meals. Japanese knives likely work fantastically if you're making japanese foods. The knives have been developed and designed for the types of foods that you would run into.

So, my four star rating, let's talk about it.

The knife cuts amazingly but the front 1/5 section feels a bit duller and tougher to cut if I attempt to use it like a chef's knife for tomato dicing and onions using horizontal and vertical slicing 3/4 of the way into them. Slicing in the middle and it feels sharper/better than the chef knife (and it should as it's supposed to be an even tighter angle). Maybe I'm using the knife wrong, but I wanted a good vegetable knife and this just doesn't seem to be 100% it although it's sharp and it works. It may also just be that the knife factory edge isn't great on the front and needs to be sharpened. I don't know.

Carrots feel like a little more work too (vs chef) I think this is due to the santoku feeling significantly lighter than the chef which means a little more work is required.

This knife, alongside the Wusthof Chef's knife, has been among the staples in my kitchen for many years. I would not recommend sharpening this knife with the Wusthof sharpener, however. Treat the knife well well -- use a smooth ceramic polishing rod/steel -- and it should serve the owner well for many years.

The Wusthof Classic santoku is an amazingly sharp knife. It also has a slight curve that allows a rocking-cutting action. This knife is well balanced and comfortable to use. One of the general claims to fame of the hollow-ground santoku is that foods won't stick to the blade when slicing. I have not found this to be true. Still a dandy knife.

Previously I bought a 7 piece Wusthof Classic block set and I love it. The block has several extra slots for expansion and this Santoku fits in perfectly. This knife is very sharp right out of the box and will stay that way with care in use unlike cheap stainless knives that dull quickly. If you love to cook and you can afford it, this is a good investment. It's very good for mincing and slicing smaller veggies like garlic, shallots, onions, mushrooms, carrots ;and also good for finely slicing cabbage for sauertkraut.

Wow after using this knife I really was surprised how well it cut. I cook a lot and had purchased a Japanese knife from a Japanese knife maker Shun. It was a good knife but kept chipping and rusting at the edge. The Wusthof is very durable and I am not having the same problems with this knife. I also find it a lot easier to sharpen.

I believe you only need a few knives to get the job done, and this is certainly one of the basic must haves! Spectacular german quality as expected, you get what you pay for in my opinion.

I am accustomed to a classic French or chef's knife, and have a separate set of custom crafted Japanese knives. This is sort of a hybrid and very useful for thinly slicing vegetables and fruits. A good purchase for use as a chef's knife, especially for someone who might not be used to wielding a long knife. Attention should be paid to the angle for sharpening as it is a narrower angle than most classic kitchen knives. Get a steel and learn how to use it if you need to, and send it out once a year to be professionally sharpened if you don't care to do it yourself.

Oh my, what a nice set! Ordered one for my kids' anniversary and one for myself based on a recommendation from Ree Drummond. Have only used the knife to slice homemade black bread and it was SOOO sharp. I'm left handed and less expensive knives are sharpened for right handed people. This feels GREAT so far, and the cutting board is beautiful...a very handy size.
