Wusthof Epicure 8 Cook's Knife. The most indispensable of knives, a chef's knife is essential for preparing any meal, no matter how simple.
Made in Germany with a full-tang blade for balance, this knife is a favorite when it comes to chopping, dicing and slicing. Since 1814, knives bearing the Wusthof name and the Trident logo have been crafted in the world's "Cutlery Capital" of Solingen, Germany.
The handle design uses the same wood composite material found in Epicurean cutting boards, ergonomically crafted for optimum comfort, and sculpted to reduce fatigue while looking beautiful in the kitchen. The blades are made in Solingen, Germany and the handles are made in the USA. The indispensable workhorse of any cutlery collection, a cook's knife performs a wide variety of cutting tasks, from fine chopping to dicing and slicing. The heavy 8-inch blade of this definitive model provides enough heft to allow the knife rather than the cook to do the cutting labor, but is more maneuverable than larger models. The length of the cutting edge makes quick work of all slicing jobs. If you don't yet own a cook's knife, or want the best investment for your dollar, this 8-inch model, which combines size with ease of use, is the one to choose. Part of the Epicure series, this knife represents two centuries of unexcelled Wusthof craftsmanship.
