I have just purchased 4 Wusthof knives and am thrilled with each of them. Wusthof makes the best quality knife I have ever used. I am so happy CHEFS carries this brand! They are easy to order, they arrived quickly and were packed well, and it was like Christmas at our home. Both my husband and I could not wait to try them. We are extremely satisfied and plan to order several more knives. Thank you CHEFS for introducing us to these great tools for our kitchen.

I ordered this size knife because I had a similar looking knife from TJ Maxx that I loved but it was getting old. This Le Cordon Bleu knife is 1/2 inch longer and a bit heavier but much sturdier. I'm sure I will have this one a lot longer. Great for cutting vegetables, garlic, onion, etc.
