I just received my Wusthof Culinar Cook's Knife, (4.5-inch) and it is just what I have always wanted. I wish I had seen this knife months ago. It has a great heft and I look forward to using it for many years to come. I really enjoy dealing with Paul as he knows his business and will say up front that he hasn't used a knife when many would be vague about using a product just to make a sale. I will be sure to buy from Paul the next time I am in the market for one of his products. Thanks again!
