I just added this knife to my Wusthof collection. I arrived extremely sharp, and is nice for semi-fine work. Activities like dicing shallots, which are too small for a large 8 inch knife and to big for a paring knife, are nice with this knife. Be careful though, the tip of the blade is quite thin, and will not stand up to abuse.

My old favorite for almost 30 years was the 6" chef's knife until this one moved in a year ago.

One reviewer opined that the 4" and 8" blades take care of either end of the spectrum, so who needs this knife? Me. Think of it as a broad spectrum knife! I use it and skip the 4" and 8" knives. Even though the other knives are available, this is the one I go for most of the time. I also prefer it to our beautiful Santoku knife.

Another reviewer thought it too expensive. Well, not when it's my favorite knife! It's a comfortable and capable tool, with an edge that won't quit. The shape, length and weight of this slightly slimmer blade as well as the overall balance in my hand are perfect for me.

We have used this 6 inch utility knife at our home for about 5 years. It has provided good service and holds its edge well. The handle unexpectedly cracked on it this week, not due to abuse or dropping, and a chunk just fell off between the bolster and the first rivet. The Wusthof Classic has a life time warranty. I have sent the knife back to Wusthof for repair or replacement. I am hoping for a no-hassle warranty transaction as I like the knife model and will continue to use the Classic if the warranty lives up to its billing.

PS Update on the warranty issue. I am happy to report that Wusthoff sent me a brand new knife within 30 days with no questions asked. That is the way that I would expect the warranty for a first class company to work. My next new kitchen knife will be a Wusthoff.

I bought my daughter a set of three Wusthof knives for x-mas and she just loves them! She's an avid cook and is into aquiring the best kitchen equipment she can. Wusthof is arguably the best knives made on the planet and after some use she's very happy. The steel is top notch and very sharp and will stay that way for a long time. Just don't let steel bang against steel. It would dull very quickly. Wusthof says you can put these in the dishwasher but I wouldn't. Too harsh over the long run. These knives are built to pass on down to generations yet to come. Please don't buy on my word alone. They cost a lot. Research! I've owned Wusthof for years and can back up my opinions with personal experience.

My most used knife in the kitchen in my Wusthof 4" paring knife. The next most used knife is my Wusthof 6 3/8" Sandwich knife. This knife stays incredably sharp. It's blade is thinner than most other knives in its size, including the Henkle. The blade taper starts almost from the very edge. These two factors helps it slice through what you are cutting easier that thicker knives. I have found the blade thickness to be a very big factor when cutting. I have Henkle knives also, but they do not hold their edge anywhere as long as my Wuthof knives. My teenage kids refer to this Wusthof knife as the "death knife" because it is always so sharp, and scarry to them. I use it for cutting bread (works better than a serrated knife), vegtables, mellons, and carving meats. The only use I have for my 8" knife is lettuce and carving turkeys. I get much more use out of this 6" knife. I never use my knives as a screew driver or to pry anything, so the thinness is not a problem. Wusthof knives last a life time and are worth every cent you pay for them.

I ordered several knives from Wusthof, the Classic ones for food prep. I did order six steak knives, Gourmet ones, and there is a real difference in quality between the two types of Wusthof knives. The Classic are so much better made and the material used is far superior. The lesser quality Gourmet works for steak knives but for serious cooking get the Classic if you can possibly afford the difference in price. For me, it is well worth it because I plan on keeping these knives for a long time and I do a lot of cooking -- chopping, slicing, cutting, etc.

We are slowly building up our collection of Wusthof knives. My husband loves this knife. As with all the Wusthof Classic knives, they are sharp, and balanced.
Cannot go wrong buying these knives.

More like a 6inch raizor; this must be Valerian steel !
I had the Henckel's International 6in and this side to side and I realized it was not a fair comparison. This is an order of refinement magnitude over the Henckel (probably the Zwilling line could match it, I don't know). It slices raw chicken breast like butter, the Henckel was sharp too, but there was more resistance to its cuts. These kind of knives can last decades and the only weak point is usually the handle where even the slightest imperfection would allow corrosion to creep into the rivets over time, but I examined this with a magnifying glass and a 10x loop and the fit of the handle to the blade is simply impeccable even at such close scrutiny. This is jewelry grade craftsmanship. I am impressed !

It is also the most useful knife in the kitchen. If I was going to keep ONE knife to do all jobs the 6inch would be it.
The only problem is that someone decided to call it a sandwich and now people think it's for sandwiches.
