I wrote this review because I am about to pass her on to a young family member showing an interest in the culinary arts and started getting all sentimental. lol
If they are still making them anything like they did twenty years ago, buy it.
I am one of those types of cooks that ends up using about two knives out of the entire set 90% of the time. Yes, I have a fillet knife that ought to be used when I fillet fish, butterfy chicken or a meat or whatever else but, when this knife is already in my hand, I never think twice about doing it with this knife. I do know enough to NOT use this knife to cut through bone or use it on an improper cutting surface, such as glass.
I have had this knife for several months now, use it nearly every day for normal home kitchen type use and have yet to be disappointed. I do the normal kitchen maintenance on the knife, as required -- a few passes on the hone with the proper angle - and this knife still works as well (or better) as it did when it was new.
I do take very good care of my tools and have not had any issues with the tip breaking off, the handle coming apart or surface rust nor do I expect any of that to start now.
I would suggest that you learn how to properly care for a nice knife or stick with the disposable $10 set from your favorite store -- either way, find something that works for you and enjoy! This knife is a great fit for me and I definitely feel that I have already gotten my money out of this knife. As my others need replacing I will certainly be looking to add knives from this series to my current set.
I was skeptical about a knife that cost so much, but let me tell you: it is worth it. It makes a world of difference when it comes to meal prepping for four hours! I'm converted to the Wusthof cult.
