These knives are fantastic. Just what I needed. The blade of my old discount store paring knife was almost sharpened away to nothing. I needed something to replace it but would stay sharp. I orderd this utility knive and a 3" paring knive. They are a very good combination for what I need. It's really nice to be able to easily cut thru food.

This well designed knife addresses many different jobs in my kitchen. It is flexible, easy to handle, light weight yet strong, and has a wonderful sharp edge on the blade. I love the size of this knife. It almost seems to be an extension of my hand! This is the knife I reach for 85% of the time.
This knife came exceptionally sharp from the factory and has already mastered many cuttung tasks in our kitchen from removing excess fats from uncooked meat to neatly making thin slices of tomato. I wonder how long it will perform at this level before it needs a "touch-up" sharpening? It's a great little knife and i highly recommend it! It comes with its own little sheath for safe storage among other knives in the drawer.
Sharp. Light weight. Works well in my small hands.

This knife is excellent for cutting just about anything. It does a good job on everything except bread. It is the right length for any typical kitchen chore.

Review 8 for Wusthof Gourmet Utility Knife
Would rather spend more for Classic
PostedJanuary 29, 2010
The Gourmet line of the Wusthof line is much thinner than the Classic line. The advantage of that is the thin slicing ability, the disadvantage is in cutting dense things like jicama, horseradish, hard cheeses. Then it becomes flimsy and although I have not broken one of these knives, I can see it happening in the future. I have had knives in the classic line for over 20 years and have thought they were the best of any knife I've used. I was trying to get a bargain by buying this knife, but I wouldn't buy it again.
