Rated 5 out of 5 by BarryTheEngineer from My first Wusthof knife and my favorite This was my first Wusthof knife and remains one of my favorites. It came from the factory beyond razor sharp and the edge retention remains amazing with careful use. I hand wash after every daily cutting session, use it only against wood or poly cutting boards, put the paper blade guard on when clean and not in immediate use, and/or nest it in the knife block when done for the day. With careful usage and care, I expect to not sharpen more than once a year -- I only occasionally hone the edge thus far. This Classic-line knife and the Ikon line are "lifetime knives", exceptional cutting instruments for people with high standards.Date published: 2017-07-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Travallar from Very nice knife I started upgrading my knives in September and this knife was my final purchase.

This is a small knife but it fits your hand and so easy to trim or peel anything. I always grab it for cutting up fruit in the a.m. and peeling garlic for dinner. I have two of these so I always have one clean. A perfect gift for anyone.Date published: 2014-07-17Rated 5 out of 5 by JC826 from Great little knife! I didn't have a good paring knife, so when this one went on sale, I ordered it. I have other Wusthof Classic knives, so I knew the quality was very good. I am so glad I did. This knife is used every day-- at least twice a day. It is the perfect size for fruit peeling and slicing. It is great for small vegetables for salad in the evenings. Great purchase!Date published: 2014-07-16Rated 1 out of 5 by DaveIN from arrived dull This might be a good knife but mine arrived extremely dull, almost as if it were used. This is not the quality I expect from Wusthof or W-S.Date published: 2013-12-08
