A kitchen essential for peeling, slicing and trimming fruits and vegetables, this German utility knife features a blade forged from stain-resistant high-carbon steel. Its full tang, riveted to the nonslip polypropylene handle, guarantees peerless balance and control.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC knife! Got this knife in my knife set. It's a great knife for trimming fat off chicken and meats, and makes an excellent slicer/carving knife for meats and cakes. Highly recommend this knife!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife! This is a very versatile knife. Great quality, like all of the other Classic knives. If you're just starting out, I'd recommend the 3 piece knife starter set which includes this one, the 8" chef's knife and 3 1/2" paring knife for a great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE THIS KNIFE I purchased this 6" knife for myself, and loved it so much, I bought one for my sister. Besides being super sharp, it has a nice balance and weight, and feels good in your hand. I own many many Wusthof Classic knives, and this one is becoming my favorite. You can use it for almost anything, from cutting vegetables to trimming the back fat off ribs! Highly recommend.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This knife is a work horse! This knife is amazing. I use it daily for most of my cutting needs. It slices through tomatoes so easily as well as many vegetables and fruits. Makes preparation for cooking so easy. I have a smaller utility and birds beak...but this is my favorite. It sharpens nicely and retains its cutting ability well. I always hand wash my Wusthof knives and occasionally use Bar Keepers to keep them extra shiny. You will not be disappointed in these knives. I also highly recommend the Wusthof bread knife. Love it. All of these Classic Wusthof knives are keepers!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality, Great Warranty We've loved our Wusthof Classic utility knife for over 6 years. It holds an edge nicely and has a comfortable handle. The handle started to develop some hairline cracks and we sent it back to Wusthof under the lifetime warranty. They sent us a brand-new knife back within just a couple weeks. Great company that really stands behind its products.

  • Can you tell me the blade length of the 6 inch utility knife? Under "dimensions" your website shows the same 4 1/2 inch blade length for both the 4 1/2 and 6 inch knives???

    Asked by: Pat9084
