The traditional French design of this Wusthof 8-in. Gourmet Ridge Chef's Knife makes it the ideal tool for chopping, dicing, and mincing tasks that require the use of a rocking motion. This specially ridged chef's knife has a row of perforations that are designed to reduce the surface area of the blade for a design that features reduced drag and enhanced performance. The ridge on the blade's side works to gently deflect food while chopping, pushing it away from the blade for best results. The knife's blade is precision forged from one solid piece of German-engineered steel in a full-tang construction, with a specially honed edge that is incredibly sharp to give you added power for many cutting tasks. Special signature Precision Edge Technology creates a sharp blade with an edge that lasts up to 30 percent longer than other knives in its class, so maintenance and sharpening is rarely required. The blade's spine has been carefully polished and ground to a smooth finish, and the knife features a finger guard for safety and additional heft and support during use. This knife is equipped with a poly handle that is contoured for comfort, and the handle is triple riveted for added strength and longer knife life.

Features:

  • Perforated sides reduce surface area to decrease drag during use and to prevent food from sticking to the blade
  • Special ridge on the side of the knife deflects food and pushes it away from the blade
  • Knife is ideally shaped to use with a rocking motion while chopping and dicing
  • Blade Length: 8-in.
  • Origin: Germany
  • Size: 8-in
  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS:

  • best for right-handed cooks

    The design elements (ridge and holes) for keeping food from sticking to the blade while chopping really only work if you chop right-handed. The ridge needs to be on the side away from the whole food and towards the chopped food. So they should have put a ridge on both sides so that both left- and right-handed chefs would benefit.

    I recommend this product.

  • Warning - Right Handed Knife

    I loved the weight of this knife! I loved the concept! Unfortunately I am left-handed and the ridge is placed on the right side so the ridges intent of pushing food off the blade only works when you use your right hand to slice with. I do wish they made a left handed model!

    I recommend this product.

  • Gourmet Ridge Chef's Veggie Knife

    Has a nice balance like most Wusthof knives. The "ventilated" design allows cut veggies to fall off the back side of the knife onto the cutting board. Nice piece of gear that I probably didn't need, but really wanted.

    I recommend this product.

  • Food for thought

    I like my knife. But I do have some suggestions for you: 1. When purchasing a knife, I feel it is necessary that the knife be contained in a sheath or protective sleeve for transport and storage. I do not have a knife block or a knife sharpener. I depend on protective sleeves (knives kept in drawer) to keep the knife in good condition and to help keep it sharp (between professional sharpenings). I was disappointed to receive the knife with the only protection being a small plastic circle on the tip - perhaps to keep the knife from puncturing the packaging. I know it is my responsibility to care for my knives. However, I believe a good knife manufacturer would want their product to stay functional by at least providing a cardboard or plastic sleeve. An expensive knife (yes, even on sale I consider this knife expensive)warrants better attention from the manufacturer and vendor. 2. On another note: I find it offensive that after I make a purchase you send me an email to get a percentage off. Wish I could have had that deal when I made the purchase. Your marketing people out to consider that sending out the offer so soon after making a purchase is really off-putting.

    I recommend this product.

  • Vegetable knife

    This knife said that because of the holes in the blade that food would not stick, but it does stick
