The Wusthof Classic 4-1/2-inch Multiprep knife combines the strengths of two different knives without compromising its own usefulness. It has the leverage of a cook's knife but is light and agile enough to be used for paring and peeling jobs, too. The wide blade and long curve of a bigger cook's knife allows for slicing, mincing, chopping, and dicing, and it's shorter and lighter to give the maneuverability of a parer. Of course there may still be times when a knife more specifically suited to a certain task might be preferable. But the 4-1/2-inch Multiprep is a wonderful all-purpose kitchen knife for a novice cook, and its lightness translates into portability for catering, camping, or cookouts. Wusthof-Trident employs almost 200 years of experience in designing their knives. On each of Wusthof's Classic knives, the blade, bolster, and tang are forged (as opposed to stamped) from a single piece of steel. Wusthof uses a high-carbon stainless steel that retains the edge and resists wear; each knife has the alloy's formula printed on the blade. The blade is polished to a super-sharp edge and then hand-buffed. Its slightly curved edge--for a smooth rocking motion on the cutting board--is laser tested to ensure a uniform surface. As with all Wusthof Classic knives, the black synthetic handle is built for strength and durability; it's triple-riveted to the steel tang, which shows through on the edges. Though technically dishwasher-safe, Wusthof recommends that their knives be hand washed to preserve their fine cutting edges. The Wusthof Classic Multiprep knife has a 4-1/2-inch blade and is 9 inches long including the handle. Wusthof offers a limited lifetime guarantee that its knives will be free of defects in materials or craftsmanship.

To my disappointment the knife that came from amazon was clearly used! The knife was dull compared to other Wusthof knives and there was inconsistent edge wear, the handle had some scratches on it, the package was ok but allow easy repackaging.
I needed the knife right away and for me it is easier to resharpen the knife then complaining and sending it back. The blade holds an edge very well, needs some touches from time to time to keep it razor sharp. A good honing steel is a best friend - make sure it has recommended hardness.
The finger guard comes down to a sharp edge at the bottom and you can possibly be use it for opening cans if you really have to. The blade is wide enough to use it as beverage cup lifter - just be careful as continuous opening a bottles of beer may effect your ability of opening a beer and you can cut yourself with a very sharp knife.
The wusthof x50crMoV15 is relatively high carbon (0.5%) and very good corrosion resistance steel. The shape and the length of the knife really makes it comfortable and safe for some chopping, slicing, its not bad for pairing and even pealing. The handle is on a slimmer side for my hands but very comfortable- a bit beefier might be better for larger hands.
I think the knife does not come in any of the sets and is a very good compromise between larger 8-10 inch chief knives and smaller utility-paring. Instead of using block of knives I currently use only three knives on a magnet strip for cooking. I've noticed that I grab this knife sometimes when I would normally use it's larger brother 8-inch chief's classic ikon.
Overall the it's a great versatile high-quality knife that can be used for many tasks. Do not use in dishwasher and highly recommend using magnetic knife rack.
Small enough to use for paring and peeling, large enough to chop and dice. Sharpens easily, grip is comfortable, and bolster allows a sharp blade all the way to the heel AND prevents finger cuts from slipping up the heel.
If I had a sheath for this knife, it could easily be my EDC and camp knife. This knife and a good hatchet and folder would let you handle almost any hunting or camping chores, especially if fish/game/vegetable processing were involved. It's that versatile.
