The Wusthof 4.5-in. Classic Cook's Knife delivers all the functionality and versatility of a larger knife in compact form. The small size allows it to cut intricate designs and smooth slices and to work easily in areas around bones.

The handle's ergonomic shape and high-impact design deliver exceptional comfort for long periods of cutting, slicing and chopping. This knife has full-tang construction with three rivets for excellent stability, and the heavy bolster ensures excellent balance during use. Each blade is hand-forged for lasting quality and honed using computer-assisted techniques for the ultimate combination of new and old manufacturing techniques.

  • 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.

  • 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.
