Wusthof Classic 4.5" Chef's Knife

A perfect everyday blade, the Wusthof Classic 4.5 Inch Cook's Knife is easy to hold and handle but sized well to tackle all your small to medium cutting jobs. Every kitchen needs a chef's knife; an all-purpose food processor when held correctly. Each surface of the blade is useful for several food prep tasks. Chopping and dicing are just the tip of it all. Try using the wide, flat surface for smashing garlic cloves prior to peeling. The sturdy spine, or back, of the blade (not the cutting edge) can even chop small bones. For some owners, the 6 inch cook's knife is slightly easier to handle than longer blades. With the new Wusthof PEtec Edge, this Classic Chef's Knife arrives to you sharper than other brands with an edge that holds its sharpness over 30 percent longer. Lifetime Wusthof Guarantee. Wusthof item number 4572-7/12.

Why Choose a Forged Steel Knife?

Wuthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand moulding to enhance the flexibility, density, and hardness of the blade. Forged knives are hand crafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve the balance and ergonomics.
