Product Description

Size: 10 Inch

Cook's knives are indispensable kitchen helpers. This 10-inch cook's knife by Wusthof is no exception. Use it to perform a wide variety of cutting chores, from mincing and chopping to slicing and dicing fruit, vegetables, meat, and more. For enhanced efficiency, its large blade surface can also be used to scoop and carry minced or cubed ingredients to waiting pans or bowls. Overall, the cook's knife measures approximately 15 by 2-1/2 by 1/2 inches.

As part of the Wusthof Grand Prix II collection, the knife's blade, bolster, and tang come precision-forged from a single piece of specially tempered high-carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength and balance. Wusthof knives offer sharp, precisely tempered blades for safe, efficient use. Laser tested for accuracy, the unique, compound angle of the blade tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to create a sturdy, yet extremely sharp cutting surface. Another thoughtful detail includes the hygienically seamless, full-tang, synthetic handles, which are ergonomically designed for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof knives carry a lifetime warranty and should be hand washed for best results.

Details of a Forged Wusthof Knife

PEtec--Precision-Edge Technology

New Wusthof technology offers superior sharpness!

The latest cutting performance tests carried out by the FGW (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e.V., a German research association for tools and materials based in Remscheid) confirm that Wusthof forged knives offer the best quality when compared to other well-known, single-layer brands.


The extensive tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 8442-5. Wusthof knives have a considerably higher ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) and maintain this performance for an extremely long time (TCC = Total Card Cut).

When compared with the winners in the "cook's knife" category awarded by German consumer organization "Stiftung Warentest" in its 1st edition of 2008, forged Wusthof knives featuring the new PEtec technology produce a result which is about 20% higher.

The Technology:

  • Blades are measured by a laser before sharpening
  • Computer programs calculate precise sharpening angle for each blade
  • Knives are then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots
  • Knives are given a final polish using a special disc

The Benefits:

  • Extremely high initial cutting performance
  • Exceptionally long edge retention / long service life of blade
  • Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade
  • Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality

PEtec from Wusthof--superior sharpness for professional and home cooks!

How Wusthof Knives are Made

Wusthof knives are known for their outstanding sharpness. By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so).

The evolution of a precision forged knife

Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel.

Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps.

1. Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel
2. Precision forged piece
3. Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell
4. Polished
5. Scales of handles and rivets
6. The Wusthof Cook's knife

Types of Blades

The Right Blade for Every Purpose

The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended.

The Differences:

Straight-edge blade: The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.

Serrated-edge blade: The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.

Hollow-edge blade: When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.

Cleaning & Storage

Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment

If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.


For proper storage we recommend the following options:

  • Knife blocks in a variety of shapes, colors and configurations. The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor.
  • Magnet Bars in wood, synthetic material or aluminum. Two extra strong magnet segments provide a safe, easily visible and space-saving storage option.
  • Cook's cases in rolls and briefcase styles. This is the ideal method for professionals to store and transport their tools safely.

About Wusthof

Since 1814 Wusthof has set the standard for designing and manufacturing precision-forged knives.

Today the family business is in its seventh generation of ownership, under the management of Harald Wusthof.

Wusthof knives are manufactured by a skilled team of 300 dedicated workers in two state-of-the-art facilities in Solingen, Germany.

Wusthof applies sustainable practices to their production facilities: Solar panels on the roof provide electricity to their manufacturing facility, they clean and reuse water to reduce water usage, and they reuse scrap materials rather than creating waste.

In addition to knives, Wusthof offers an assortment of cutting boards, knife blocks, kitchen tools, and scissors bearing the famous Trident logo--a symbol of form, function, and uncompromising quality.

Extremely well balanced, excellent steel, easy to use.
This knife is perfect for chopping, slicing and dicing smaller vegetables that don't require the larger chefs knife.

I know this is not the most expensive knife out there, but it is sure the best I've ever owned.

This is an excellent knife: Hefty without being heavy, with perfect balance and a perfect handle, and perfect blade shape. It has good steel, good finishing, and a good edge. It’s only disadvantage is that it has a full bolster. There are knives with better steel, finishing, edges, and looks, but the GP2 shines where it really matters: weight, balance, and handle comfort.

I have used many of the knives on the market (Forschner, F. Dick, and Messermeister industrial knives, MACs, Messermeister San Moritz, Henckel 4 and 5 star, Chefs Choice Trizor, Global classic and forged, Shun classic, TojiroDP, Wusthof Classic, GP, Cordon Bleu,and Culinar, even the ratty but cheap Farberware Pro Forged and Stainless). If I only owned 1 knife, it would be a toss-up between this and my 10" Forschner Fibrox. It doesn't get 5 stars because it lacks some of the features that are increasingly standard on a knife in this price range, but there is no knife on the market in this price range that I think garners 5 stars. The Messermeister has better steel, perfect finishing and modern features, but is too heavy and has bad balance. The Shun is pretty and has a perfect blade but mediocre balance and a tiny, straight, round handle. Globals are nice if you have small hands, but are overpriced and have been made obsolete by MAC, Shun, Tojiro, and a half dozen other Japanese manufacturers becoming available in the US. Forschners are cheap, flawlessly balanced, perform beautifully, and are an unbeatable value, but they're light, thin, look cheap, and aren't going to last like a high end knife. The MAC Superior series is amazing, but has a very limited selection of shapes and this isn't one of them. Their Ultimate Series Tungsten steel 10” chef is good, but twice the price of the Grand Prix2.

This is, without exaggeration, the greatest knife ever made. I have some decent enough knives that I've used before (Sabatier), but this makes my other chef's knife look like an idiot. It is so effortless to use, and such a pleasure. Seriously, your food will practically cut itself with this knife. Your vegetables will part themselves, and the fat will slice itself away from your meats. I've always loved chopping food, ever since I learned how, but this raises the act from an enjoyable necessity past hobby and into the realm of culinary bliss.

First purchased Wusthof Grand Prix knives in 2001. Bought this knife for me this Christmas along with some other knives for my daughter's starter set.
This knife is the nicest, most well balanced I have ever owned. The handle is a little different from the earlier Grand prix knives but is a great improvement. Your pinky finger will fit perfectly on the handle while using it. I still like my other GP knives very very much, the GP II's are just better. Over the holidays I went on a cooking frenzy just to use my new knife.
These chef's knifes are a definite must have. Depending on your size, get either a 7",8",9",or 10". I am tall so I like the 9" and 10" the best. An average person will like the 8" or 9".

I recommend a good starter set as being: An 8 or 9" cook/chef knife. A 6" carving/utility knife and a 4 to 5" utility/sandwich knife.

Versatile, quick, will pretty easily manage many of the tasks of paring and fillet knives, as well as limited range chef work. Almost dangerous in its sharpness and deftness...almost cut myself a few times, after being lulled into rather reckless technique by a "pointless" santoku.

If you do cabbage, escarole, squash, and other rather big items, an 8-10 inch knife is still necessary.

Balance, design, fit and finish,...a dream. Oh, I forgot: metallurgy...wow.

I have lived with Wal-Mart and Target cheap knife sets for many years and got by just fine. But part of me wanted to know what I was missing spending by spending some money on good knives. After looking at recommendations I decided to go with this knife as my first "nice knife". Wow, the difference is worth the money. This knife is sharp, slices and chops anything I have thrown at it, and with a couple passes on a honing tool it stays sharp. It feels great using it and the handle has a nice curve in it that fits well in my hand. Needless to say, Wusthof has a lifetime customer in me and I have started building a set blade by blade. It's worth it.

Size Name: 8 Inch Verified Purchase
The whole Grand Prix II line is fantastic. I bought this knife as well as the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 7-Inch Hollow Ground Santoku Knife and I am extremely satisfied. The first time I used them I was literally giddy. The vegetables I was slicing, cutting, and chopping didn't stand a chance. Like a hot knife through butter.

The knife is excellently balanced, and the handle won't slip out of your hand. The blade is extremely sharp. Seriously, be careful cleaning this thing -- I have already destroyed a few sponges, and got my fingers a couple times (I'm used to cleaning dull knives, what can I say?).

If you're looking for a great knife to last you a long time, you won't regret this purchase.

I bought this as a gift for my first cook to use at work, and while I personally prefer my knife(classic ikon), I could not be more pleased with this knife's performance. It's held it's edge well so far with normal maintenance for 6 weeks in a professional kitchen. It has excellent weight in your hand, and is fairly well balanced. I processed 25 pounds of carrots down to battonet last week with this knife and did not need to hone it with the steel throughout the process. With proper storage and edge maintenance this knife will last you for a very long time. I recommend this knife for serious home cooks and as a beginner to intermediate knife for professionals.
