When a more common 6- or 8-in. Chef's knife seems a little too large or unwieldy for your prep needs, reach for this Wusthof 4.5-in. Cook's knife. Fits perfectly in a smaller palm and packs all the cutting power and precision you need for dicing and slicing smaller vegetables and seafood. Part of the Classic series, this knife, made in Solingen, Germany, is hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. The high-carbon stainless steel blades are hardened to maintain a sharp edge and full tangs provide perfect balance with riveted, high-impact composition handles.

Wusthof's newest state of the art technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives. This technology allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel of the knife. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees. The knives are now sharper and this refinement increases the sharpness retention because exacting angles and edges last longer than edges sharpened by hand. The result is a knife that is 30% sharper and the ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) lasts twice as long.

  • Cleaning & Care: Handwash with mild cleanser
  • Construction: Forged
  • Handle: Traditional Riveted
  • Material: High Carbon Stainless Steel
  • Model No.: 4582-7/12
  • Origin: Germany
  • Size: 4.5-in.
  • Warranty: Lifetime
  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS:

  • Since I have small hands, I was looking for a knife that would fit them comfortably when chopping veggies, garlic, onions, etc. and this knife fit perfectly. The balance is excellent, plus the price was great since it was on sale. I'm considering another one for my sister.

    I recommend this product.

  • A versatile knife is an unusual shape

    I have had one of these fine knives for several years and I recently purchased one for my son who is a professional chef. When he visits our home and does any work in the kitchen I will invariably find this knife among the dirty or recently washed dishes. As in my case it is one of the first knives he reaches for. He is used to using 8

  • Wusthof Multi Prep Cook's Knife (4.5-in,)

    This was just an additional purchase of a knife I've been using for years. When it first came out, I ordered one and felt I'd finally found a knife that fits my hand. I'm a huge Wusthof knife fan -- specifically Classic. I have been using them since the early 1980s and won't buy anything else. Nonetheless, none of the Wusthof chef's knives, including the 6", have impressed me as much as this one. I use it for almost everything, and I've noticed my husband, whose hands are much larger than mine, also reaches for it a large part of the time. We have two homes, and I now have two Wusthof 4.5" multi-prep cook's knives in each home. I've also purchased them for my two daughters and my sister. Love them!

  • Wusthof Knives

    I do a lot of prep work and this knife makes the work so much easier although the smaller size blade takes some getting used to;I usually use the seven inch chef's knife(which I love as well)and have other knives from Wusthof that I have had for years and they have never disappointed me!! This new size is now my "go to"knife for almost everything!! Fits wonderfully in your hand with no fatigue when using.

  • This was a gift for my sister who has only one hand and cannot use a standard size chef's knife. When I saw this knife i thought it would be perfect for her. She absolutely loves this knife as it allows her to more uniformly slice and chop.

    I bought this knife for our waitresses to prep salad ingredients at our small Inn. One waitress in particular is very petite, and has preferred smaller knives in the past. We love this knife, but people should keep in mind that it is not for everyone
