Rated 1 out of 5 by smarbe2 from Wash Very Gingerly to Save Finish A good friend, who is a professional chef was so impressed with a BBQ I hosted he gave me a gift card to replace my old carbon steel chef's knife. With his suggestion and much research I went with the Wüsthof Classic Hollow-Edge 8” Chef's Knife. I purchased this at Williams and Sonoma in Tampa at the International Mall. This was my first purchase there, the store and the staff were excellent. I shopped at the mall because I wanted to feel the balance of the knife. The feel and aesthetics of the knife were perfect! I purchase a plastic Williams and Sonoma blade protector too. The first meal I prepared was a roasted cauliflower dish, as suggested I immediately hand washed the knife and then dried with a paper towel parallel to the edge. After drying I was heartbroken to see a simple paper towel had ruined the finish of my blade! The blade is polished perpendicular to the edge and the only way to safely clean and dry the blade is to go parallel to the edge very disappointed. I hope I can return this weekend for a refund. Because I was impressed with the look and finish of the blade. I love the handle, balance and edge, but the finish was disappointing. I ordered the Wüsthof Classic Hollow-Edge 6” Chef's Knife and 3 ½” paring knife online with a discount before I washed the 8” knife. Don't even know if I will open them or just return very disappointed.Date published: 2017-05-31Rated 5 out of 5 by surfergirl12 from Great Knife This knife is Awesome! I just received mine. I ordered the 8 inch which I prefer. The blade is super sharp out of box. The handle is comfy, but the knife itself is kind of heavy for my preference. I enjoy my Grand Prix II Santoku knife more for the weight. Over all this is a great knife and I think the quality is more than suitable for most peopleDate published: 2014-04-12Rated 5 out of 5 by tcriggs from Perfection I have loved my Wusthof classic knives for decades, and did not think I needed a new chef's knife, but the combination of sharpness and balance on this 8" knife blew me away. It represents a new level of excellence. The hollow indentations do seem to help stop food from adhering to the sides, too.Date published: 2012-11-28
