I'm a professional caterer, chef, food stylist, and blogger, and have used a lot of knives... but never a Wusthof. After hearing others clamor over the Wusthof name, I always kept the brand on the back burner, and finally decided to make the purchase after Amazon featured it as a daily deal item.
Overall, I'm not particularly impressed. This knife does a fine job cutting through bread, tomatoes, and other foods, but it didn't live up to the hype. Perhaps my expectations were set too high by friends and coworkers who loved the brand?
Personally, I like my knives to have weight to them, and this knife is fairly light. I also read multiple reviews here that said the knife's blade seemed to bend... in general, I'm skeptical of reviews by others because you never know how trustworthy the reviewer is, but I have to agree, the blade does bend slightly. The bending isn't enough to worry about for general purposes, but it does move when you're cutting really crusty bread.
