This is a well-made knife. I expect no less from Wüsthof, and I'm pretty sure the build quality isn't your primary reason for reading a review. What you want to know is: how is it to use?

For comparison, I'll bring in my Shun santoku and Victorinox Forschner Fibrox chef's knife. The chai dao weighs just about the same as the santoku, and more than the Victorinox (everything weighs more than the Victorinox--but that's not a complaint). The balance at the bolster is excellent. The blade is just a shade thinner than that of the santoku, and wider than that of the chef's knife.

For dicing an onion or other softer vegetables, all three knives do a great job, and choosing one of them is a matter of whichever you find more comfortable to hold. I give the chai dao an edge on this (okay, pun intended) because I find the santoku a little uncomfortable to hold at the bolster, and the Victorinox definitely wants to be held by the handle. For dicing carrots, the Victorinox doesn't work as well as the other two because it's lighter, and the heft of the santoku and chai dao knives helps one get through the carrot.

For slicing chicken breast for stir-fry (or whatever you're making), the chai dao shines. When I slice meats I usually have a little wrist action involved as I pull across the flesh, and the curvature of the blade keeps the edge where it needs to be. The santoku's lengthened curve tends to pull away from the board for that, as does the chef's knife; the shorter blade length of the chai dao also seems better suited to this task.

For chopping herbs I find that I'll choose either the chai dao or the chef's knife. I think I like the chai dao somewhat better for this, but I'll need a few more trials to firm up that opinion.

Wüsthof makes some of the best knives for both home and professionals. I am a chef and I own several, as well as other knife brands. This knife is an Asian style blade. "Western style" knives have a tapered profile and the edge is cut at a slightly less steep angle. This blade is the same thickness from the "shoulder" to the edge and the edge has the thinner, Asian hone. I mention this because these blades should NOT be sharpened with a "standard" sharpener as the angle will be changed over time and they will not perform as well.

Having said all that, I bought this to add to my other knives. I've used it to cut vegetables and a few other tasks and I can already tell it will be one of my "go to" knives. The knife is lighter than my full-sized chef's knife so it will cause less fatigue when used for a lot of prep work. The edge is extremely sharp so it cuts easily through anything you can throw at it. What I like the most about it is the slightly curved profile which makes the rocking motion of cutting (the "correct" method of cutting) much smoother than a straight blade.

I would recommend this knife to anyone who already has a basic set of knives (a chef's knife, a filet, knife and a paring knife) as a valuable addition to your cooking "tool bag."

very good quality knife. Sharp to thin cut meat and vegetables. It is wide enough to transfer food from cutting broad to bowl. The back of the knife is good to scrub off the mitt food off the cutting broad without damaging the knife. Wide enough to smash garlic and ginger. well balance for a female hands. I will recommend it to my family and my friends for sure. I did not sharpen it for a month and it is still in sharp good shape. Very satisfied with it!

I was adding to my knife collection (all Wusthof) and this has rapidly become my favorite go to knife. The balance is great and really gets the job done quickly.

This knife has become one of our favorites. It needed a touch up on the sharpening stone right out of the box, but I think most knives do. It fits the hand and is nicely balanced. This does everything that our standard chef's knife does but is a little bit heavier for chopping. The slightly curved blades gives a pleasant rocking motion that works great for mincing and dicing. Since tip is nearly a sheepsfoot type of blade I think it is a little bit safer if the kitchen gets crowded.

Very happy with this knife.
I bought it because I could not afford the Giada de Laurentiss mezzaluna knife .
This one has the right curvature to make it easy to chop vegetables, herbs, etc. I also like the weight and the extra wide blade.

Replaced my old knife set with all Wusthof. I have 5 knives and this is by my absolute favorite. I used to love my 8" chefs knife, but this is my go to the majority of time. Great weight and balance, of course super sharp. Get this knife.
