This is also the knife that inspired a friend who finally bought one to exclaim, "I'm surprised you didn't say, 'You call that a knife????? THIS is a knife!' when you were using my (old, stamped, serrated) knives!" She now understands my addiction to forged German steel.
As always, it's best to try several knives in person and see how they fit your hand before buying, but it would be hard to go wrong with this one.
Overall, I'd say the greatest virtue of this knife is nearly idiotproof maintenance (other than keeping it sharp, more on which below). The sculpted resin handle is very durable and comfortable, and X50CRMoV15 steel used in this blade (and most high-end kitchen knives from the big German brands) is EXTREMELY stain- and corrosion-resistant and very tough against chipping. Both handle and blade can happily survive soaking in a soapy sink for two days, being run through the dishwasher, and any of the other things that you really shouldn't be doing with a knife but that tend to happen in a busy family household.
That said, the performance of the knife in, you know, cutting stuff is mediocre at best. The tradeoff for the corrosion-resistance and the resistance to chipping is that this steel is pretty soft, and therefore doesn't retain an edge well at all. More troubling is that, while poor edge retention usually means ease of sharpening, my experience in a decade of ownership has been that this knife really doesn't sharpen up all that well either--just doesn't easily take a very keen edge and has to be sharpened at much more obtuse angles than my Japanese knives in VG-10 steel. So, if you like to keep your knives sharp, the maintenance load for this knife is actually pretty high. I'd also add that, like most Wusthof knives I've owned in my time, which are "sharpened" primarily for shipment and display rather than for slicing ability, this thing was pretty dull out of the box way back when we got it.
So, all in all, not a great knife, and it costs quite a lot for what you get. It's a good choice if you or the others in your household are unlikely to be terribly careful with it. Not the best choice for your money if you want good performance out of the blade.
