Product Description

Amazon.com

Larger than a parer and smaller than a cook’s knife, this versatile 4-1/2-inch utility knife is the ideal size for cutting avocadoes, cheese, and apples, making it a great picnic accessory. Wusthof’s Grand Prix2 knives differ slightly from the original Grand Prix line in that they feature a redesigned handle with more ergonomic curve and a squared-off end. Contemporary in look, the pebble-grain synthetic handle is molded over an extended tang for a sure, comfortable grip. Because there is less steel in the tang, a Grand Prix2 knife offers slightly less heft than its Classic counterpart, yet more than the trim Le Cordon Bleu. All are beautifully balanced.

Like all Grand Prix and Classic knives, the utility knife is precision forged from a single piece of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. The blade has been impeccably ground, tapered, and polished, and its edge laser-tested for uniformity. After repeated use, the edge may be easily resharpened using a sharpening steel. Though the knife is dishwasher-safe, Wusthof recommends hand-washing all fine cutlery. Made in Germany, the knife is fully guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and/or craftsmanship. --Ann Bieri

This is a near-perfect knife. The handle design is especially nice, and the blade is long enough to be meaningful. Is it worth the FORTUNE you have to pay? Probably not. A $7 grocery-store utility knife will do the job but not as elegantly. Will you use it every day? Then the additional quality and beauty of this knife may represent good value.

The Wuesthof Grand Prix II Utility Knife is for sure the most used knife in our kitchen. We have it now since over 6 years and I expect it to work for the next 20 or so more years. I use it for almost everything and it has the nick-name the mango knife. It works really well on all larger fruits and vegetables, meat and even on some fish. The utility knife is well balanced and very comfortable to hold even for longer working times. It kept its sharp edge for a very long time, but as with all forged knives they should be sharpened regularly.
It is easy to sharpen again; I use the Wuesthof steel or my WMF sharpener (I love that one!) or my Wuesthof ceramic sharpener (I had to find out my favorite sharpener by trying them all).
I am hand-washing my forged knives right after use and I keep them well and dry stored in a wooden knife block. Forged knives should not be washed in a dish washer. The knives are expensive, but I do want to enjoy my daily work in the kitchen and I do not like messing around with dangerous blunt and cheap knives. For me every knife that is longer than a peeling knife should be a forged knife, with the only exception of a bread knife. My bread knife is over 30 years old and works like on its first day.
If a not used Wuesthof knife arrives dull I would send it back, it should have been easy to exchange the knife for a sharp one.

My son is a chef. When he cooks at my house, he brings his own knives because he doesn't like mine. He recommended that I upgrade a few of my knives to WUSTHOF Grand Prix. I'm so glad I did. Cutting and chopping is a breeze with these knives. They are very sharp.

Love this Knife! just the right size, I use it for peeling, chopping & slicing. I purchased this along with the Wusthof 8inch knife, both are great! these 2 are all I need and I was able to get rid of all my others knifes. These are my 2 favorites!

Go Wusthof Go Wusthof - It is just worth the extra money! These knives are great for around the kitchen and they are as sharp as a razor blade! 4 weeks now of hard labor and no need for sharpening yet?

I'm sure there are better knives out there, I just don't know if I want to spend more. This is the second it's size in my set and it is the go to knife for practically anything. I have had the set for 15 years and minus one that we have somehow lost, all are working without the need to sharpen with anything more than the sharpener that came with it.

This is a larger version of the paring knife. It is very sharp and very useful for slicing, chopping, dicing and peeling fruits and vegetables that are a little too large for the 3 1/2 inch parer. It does a terrific job and is reflective of the legendary Wusthof quality. Highly recommended.

When I opened up the package I found the knife to be very light and very sharp. Holds edge well, better then expect. In use the knife is wonderful, worth the money. I'll keep this one for life.
