A great all-around kitchen knife for home or professional use. This shape is the most essential of all knives used in the kitchen. 10-inch length is ideal for professionals and culinary school students, or for home users who have the space and know that they want a big knife to complement a smaller chef's or santoku knife. Most any kitchen cutting, slicing and chopping is easily accomplished with this well-balanced tool featuring a comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge. This Wusthof Gourmet model is nearly identical in terms of the blade and handle (it has a similar full-tang, triple-riveted handle) to the best-selling 4582 Classic models, except it's not a forged blade, so it's not as expensive and it's lighter. But it's still the same metal, and still extremely sharp and strong. Again, a high quality and very sharp knife! Popular with culinary school students who need something rugged and yet high quality and affordable, and makes a great graduation or other gift.
Made in Germany.

The blade of each GOURMET knife is cut from stainless steel plates with a precision laser and then processed in 35 manufacturing stages. Thanks to their extremely high degree of hardness of 56° HRC, they are comparable with the quality and sharpness of forged knives. Thanks to their lighter weight and unique ergonomics they are very comfortable to hold, extremely well-balanced and facilitate cutting which is both robust and easy on the hands and wrists. The handles made from special synthetic material are triple-riveted, water resistant, and therefore exceptionally hygienic. The GOURMET series impresses with an excellent price-performance ratio and, with more than 40 diff erent items, is just as useful for domestic households as a starter set or as basic equipment for the professional kitchen.
