Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu Chef's Knife

Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu Chef's Knife : The Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu Chef's Knife is one of the most all-round knives for quick and efficient kitchen prep. The blade's front edge finely dices onions, herbs and smaller fruits and the rest of the edge chops and slices larger vegetables, boneless meats and hard cheeses. The Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu collection is the first cutlery to bear the name of the world's most renowned culinary academies. Created by Wusthof and Le Cordon Bleu head chefs, the cutlery features a specially designed half-bolster that allows cutting and sharpening along the entire blade edge. Compared to the Wusthof Classic knives, the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu chef's knife is 30% lighter for easier handling and repetitive cutting. The Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu chef's knife is also ideal for slicing hard processed meats and trimming melon rinds and bread crusts. Perfectly balanced for optimum control and cutting ease, the Wusthof chef's knife is precision forged of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. Exclusive Precision Edge Technology makes the cutlery 20% sharper with twice the edge retention than Wusthof knives without this exacting edge. For extra sharpness, each mirror-finish edge is honed to a 14-degree angle compared to a conventional 20 degrees. The seamless, hygienic synthetic handle is triple-riveted with a full tang to ensure a comfortable, slip-resistant grip. Since 1814 Wusthof has handmade its knives in Germany and the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu collection is the official cutlery used by Le Cordon Bleu students across the globe.

Best knife I ever had, including previous Wusthofs

This is the best knife I've ever owned including previous Wusthofs, though they are excellent. This knife is thinner, and flies through kitchen prep/chopping tasks like no other. They've done something to the steel; it's better and the pristine edge lasts longer. You can steel it many times to bring back the perfect edge before you have to hone, but remember to hone/steel it at 14 degrees rather than 18-20 as previously. this knife significantly speeds up and improves my kitchen prep work, and improves its quality. And it's more fun to use.
I recommend this one to anyone who is serious about their cooking.

This is the knife I've been dreaming of forever! It handles extremely well, has great balance, and there isn't anything it won't cut.
I am truly pleased with this miracle addition to my kitchen.
When my husband used it he could not believe how wonderfully it cut, without any effort, too. He shredded lettuce for our dinner and he actually didn't want to stop shredding he was having so much fun!

I have several chef knives, and this is the first one that fits in my small-ish hands. The contoured grip is light yet secure, and I have better control than with my heavier, carbon steel knives. Recommend it especially for women.

This is my second knife of this size.
My wife loves this knife, and so do I.
Since we both cook, we fight over who gets to use it first.
So that is why we have two knives of this size.
We use them 90% of the time.
The other knives seem to stay in the butcher block.

I bought this for my son who is a professional chef. He commented that it was lighter than his usual chef's knife and better balanced. He is looking forward to using it at work and at home.

This knife is very easy to handle and is weighted very nicely. I was worried at first that it was too light to effectively chop, but was quickly proven wrong. I will certainly be purchasing more of these knives to complete my set.

It is smaller than my old knife and easier to handle. I like the weight, very light, and best of all, it cuts great.

I really enjoy this chef knife and the handle is perfect for my hand. The blade is sharp and when needed would be easy to sharpen. The quality is very good.

Very Disappointed

I absolutely love the two Wustof paring knives I have. They arrived so sharp and have stayed that way. I bought this Chef's knife recently to replace one I had for 20 years. I was/am extremely disappointed because it was not sharp when it arrived...I've already had to sharpen it twice.
These are not cheap; I chose to invest in the Chef's knife - I am sorry I did.
