Long renowned as “The City of Blades,” Solingen has earned the reputation of crafting the world’s finest cutlery for generation after generation. Located in Western Germany near the banks of the Wupper River, Solingen has been home to master blacksmiths for over 2,000 years. WÜSTHOF continues to call the picturesque city of Solingen its home, and proudly marks each blade as “Made in Solingen.”

CLASSIC HOLLOW EDGE SANTOKU KNIFE
WÜSTHOF’S CLASSIC full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. CLASSIC knives feature a new handle design made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration.
The CLASSIC Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is designed with a thinner blade than the traditional chef’s knife, at a 10 cutting edge, and gradually curves up at the very end providing a straighter edge. The hollow edge is crafted with evenly spaced vertical indentations, which create small air pockets between the blade and the food. These small air pockets gently push food off the blade and reduce friction and drag. This knife allows cooks to effortlessly prep a wide array of fresh produce, including starchy vegetables like potatoes, which tend to stick to a knife’s blade.
- Precision-forged from a single blank of high carbon stainless steel
- Full tang that is triple riveted to the handle for precise control
- Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) yields a blade that is 20% sharper with twice the edge retention.
- Tempered to 58⁰ Rockwell
- Comfortable and highly-durable polyoxymethylene (POM) handle with a traditional look and feel, stickered with our red Trident logo
- Full bolster and finger guard

I bought the 8 inch, I just put a new bevel on at 800 grit after hours and hours of use. I went to a 3000 and then polished on an 8000 and this knife is amazing again and inspires me to cook and prep everyday in my professional kitchen. I took the sticker off the first second I got it, it's cheap and looks cheap, plus people were complaining that it stained the handle. Great knife to any knife roll!
Because this 7" has handled everything I needed it to do and it's a pleasure to hold and cut with. Of course I watched several different chefs on YouTube discuss and demonstrate proper technique and etiquette for using a chef's knife so that I wouldn't cut my fingers off. Trust me, you should too because this blade is sharp - I mean battle sharp. I would take it into battle against an armored knight, it's that sharp. My former chef's knife was a Chicago Cutlery and there is no comparison - Wustoff blows it off the map.
I also bought the Wustoff knife sharpener as well and it does a splendid job of keeping the blade sharp. My kids have had a discussion over who wants it when dad passes on it's that good of a knife. So treat yourself to a GOOD chef's knife and try this one. You'll thank yourself for doing so. I promise. :)
This is the second one of these we have added to our knife selection, and for good reason. The Santoku style is very useful and versatile, and we love the way these knives feel in our hands. They arrive razor sharp, so be careful. One slip and you will be carving a chunk out of yourself. We've had our collection of Wusthof knives for 2 decades and they are still going strong.
Would definitely recommend.
I can't get over how sharp this knife is though. I can only hope that it keeps its edge over time. Kind of pricey, but would buy again.
