My favorite. Twenty-two year review.
on November 9, 2015
I purchased this knife in 1993 during as my first "real" knife in my first year in culinary school over 20 years ago. This was back when it still read "Wusthof Trident" on the blade and I remember plopping down almost $200 when I could barely afford to put gas in the car to get to work after classes. I have used this knife to cook countless meals and I love it. Feels and performs better than any other IMO. In the 20+ years, especially early on as a college student, I have not been "careful" with it in the least and she still looks and performs great. She has been through many a dishwasher (don't do that!) riden hard and put away wet and that steel has never had a pit or rust spot on it. I will post a couple pics as I was just spending a little time with her on the tri-stone and I was thinking of all the special occasions that knife has been apart of. I used that knife to cook the dinner the night I asked my wife to marry me. The days of family visits after my son was born. Get togethers after losing a loved one. That knife and I have been been through a lot. The finish on her face shows some wear but I can tell you a story about each of the major blemishes. :)
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.
