Value not found. Wusthof Classic 4-1/2-Inch Utility Knife
Called a utility knife because it does small and intermediate cutting jobs equally well, this knife pares fruit and chops small vegetables beautifully. The sharp point makes it ideal for small or intricate cutting chores. A much-loved kitchen helper, this knife carries its weight mostly in its extremely comfortable handle, which allows you greater control.
Part of the Classic series, the knife represents two centuries of unexcelled Wüsthof craftsmanship. Like other cutlery in the series, it's hand-forged from a single piece of stainless steel for maximum strength; the hand-polished blade is exactingly calibrated to be hard enough to resist dulling yet soft enough to take a keen edge when it's honed or sharpened. Dishwasher-safe and with a traditionally shaped, ergonomically designed handle that is triple-riveted for durability, the knife brings a guaranteed lifetime of low-maintenance cutting to any cook who owns it. --Arthur Boehm

This is a great knife. I was originally going to buy an entire set as a gift to my mom, but after much thought - realized that it's better to spend the money on a few quality knives than buying a set where most of the knives are rarely used. After some reading and research, I decided on the 8-inch cook's knife and this 4.5" utility knife. I'm very happy on my decision, and so is my mom. The large knife is used for most meal prep, and the smaller knife is used for more delicate cutting (for fruits, etc.)
This knife cuts beautifully and feels great in your hand. It retains its sharpness and looks good too. In fact, everyone who came to visit during the holidays and spent some time in the kitchen for meal prep, exclaimed (unprompted) how great these knives were. They're unbelievably sharp, cutting through meat, cooked conch, vegetables, fruits, and so much more with great ease.
The splurge on the Wusthof Classic line is well worth it. They have several others, such as the gourmet line, which are cheaper, so be careful when you're looking. The classic line is full tang (blade is forged from a single piece of metal and extends into the entire length of the handle), and are therefore much more durable and feel a lot better in your hand. I'd highly suggest giving lots of thought into getting really great knives, and think about the knives you use most (i.e. if you don't often eat bread, a really expensive bread knife really isn't a must) when making a purchase like this one.
Meals together is a big part of our family, and cooking a meal together as a family when we're all home for the holidays means a lot to all of us. Having a great knife to ease through the long process of preparing a good meal really does make a huge difference. I think this knife will last for a really long time, and am glad to have added it to the collection at home.
Minor note: I noticed that the red wusthof square sticker is just that...a sticker. I was shocked at having a sticker as a logo on such an expensive knife, and even doubted its authenticity. A bit of Google research showed that yes, indeed, wusthof classic knives have a red logo sticker on them that would probably come off after some use. It's not biggie - just peel it off if it bothers you, and continue to use the knife for all of it's amazing qualities regardless.
It has a good feel, and is a pleasure to use. It is, however, a little bit longer than you would want for a paring knife.
We had this knife for 6 months before discovering its flaw. It disappears! Seriously, we've looked everywhere. How do you lose a kitchen knife, especially the one you use so often it lives on the counter? I'm going to immediately buy another, but maybe I'll get the shorter one to avoid the invisibility feature.
It's very well made, nicely shaped and balanced and comes with a nicely sharpened blade from the factory. It's also easy to resharpen and holds a fine edge with ease.
