The Urban Farmer cutlery collection was created by German designer Bjoern Berger to celebrate farm-fresh food, home gardening and cooking with delicious seasonal ingredients. Crafted with a full-tang, high-carbon steel blade, nonslip bolster and rustic beechwood handle, this chef's knife is a well-balanced, comfortable and efficient tool ideal for slicing, dicing, mincing, chopping and cutting thick vegetables and meat.

  • Knife is precision laser cut from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon, no-stain steel.
  • Tempered to the ideal grade of hardness; blade is strong enough to hold a lasting edge and flexible enough not to crack under pressure.
  • Semisoft bolster provides a secure grip even when hands are wet.
  • Full tang is riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control.
  • Handle is shaped from sustainably grown European beechwood and heat treated to ensure extreme toughness and water resistance.
  • Made in Solingen, Germany.
  • A Williams Sonoma exclusive.

  • Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Knife with A Few Quirks Before purchasing this knife, I've been using a cheaper and quite heavy 8" Hampton Forge. I went in with the goal of not only getting a higher quality Wusthof knife, but also something that is lighter to handle. I chose the 8" Urban Farmer Chef's Knife as it fit my two main requirements AND, in my opinion, more stylish than some of Wusthof's other lineup. For the last four months since, I've used this knife almost 100% of the time I'm cooking. I greatly prefer the light handling, it stays true through multiple uses (as you'd expect a Wusthof to), and it just looks fantastic. There are however a few cons to note. The most obvious one is the beechwood handle. Yes, it's gorgeous. It's also wood, not plastic like you'll find on most Wusthofs, and therefore can can deteriorate quickly if not given the proper care wood deserves. The fact that it is also a single piece of wood, not two pieces sandwiching around the tang, makes splitting all the more possible. So far I've only ever washes and dried by hand and immediately after use (as recommended by the manufacturer), but I still feel like I have to baby the knife more so than I did my old Hamilton. The other con is the finger guard at the heel of the blade does not extend the full depth of the knife. It's easy to nick your finger on the back of the heel if you're not careful. Doesn't make me want to use the knife any less, just an annoying "feature." Overall, the knife feels fantastic, works fantastic, and looks fantastic. A knife from Wusthof's Gourmet lineup might be a better choice if the wood handle is concerning (similar pricing and design), but if asked, I'd still recommend this knife.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Handle Split after first use! The handle split after we used it one time. Super disappointing.
