This Gourmet Japanese cooks knife, also known as a santoku knife, features a straight-edge blade for straight-down slicing and precision chopping. Rows of alternating hollows in the blade create tiny air pockets, so the knife slides without sticking and even paper-thin slices fall away. The 3-inch parer comes in handy for cleaning prawns, trimming ginger, or creating garnishes. Like other Wüsthof cutlery, this set is safe in the dishwasher, but should be washed by hand for best results. --Emily Bedard

It is also stamped, not forged. Stamped knives are made by taking a piece of metal and "stamping" out the shape of the blade. A forged knife is one where they heat/fold the steel multiple times for strength. I also own a forged Santoku that was double the price, but only use it for butchering. The reason being a stamped blade is much thinner than a forged blade due to how it is manufactured. As a result, a forged blade is better for things such as quartering a chicken.
As a result, I used this stamped blade 90% of the time. The blade is thinner than a forged knife and I can cut perfect tomato slices and other delicate cutting with this that I wouldn't even attempt with my forged blade due to its wider blade. My Wusthof Gourmet has been through hell and back, but I have never sharpened--ever. I've had it for 10+ years and if you run it across a steel to hone the blade before you use it (a steel only hones the blade and does not sharpen--I'm sure you can find YouTube videos on it). The only downside to this knife I've seen so far is that after about 5 years of heavy use the handle cracked and the red Wusthof sticker has come off. The plastic handle has cracked, but thanks to the full tang construction there is no difference in performance due to the crack, so it is mainly aesthetic.
At the end of the day, I can't say enough good things about this knife. I paid 65 for just the Santoku over 10 years ago so 70 for the set with free shipping is a deal.
However they are the 'cheap series' and do not hold a point like the more expensive knives.
