The Wusthof Classic Chef's Knife, 23 cm (9"), is a great all-around kitchen knife for home or professional use. This shape is the most essential of all knives used in the kitchen. Versatile 9-inch length is commonly recommended by culinary schools, as it's a good compromise between a potentially unwieldy 10-inch and the 8-inch which might be a bit small for some professional situations.
Precision forged from a single blank of steel with bolster and full tang. Full bolster/finger guard for safety and protection. Most any kitchen cutting, slicing and chopping is easily accomplished with this perfectly balanced tool featuring a comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge. German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use!
