Absolutely fantastic knives
December 28, 2016
To give this outstanding knife as a gift is truly a statement of thoughtfulness and generosity. The classic wide chef's knife is easier to handle and use in all respects than the regular chef's knife (which is also excellent and has many 5 star reviews). The wide chef’s knife is ‘taller’ so it is easier to hold and easier to see what I am cutting; it is the real ‘working’ knife in my kitchen. There are other, far more expensive knives on the market that will give Wusthof a run for the money, but for a product that will last for several generations with proper care; this is the one to give. Or get. The classic wide chef has a full finger guard bolster that fits my larger fingers and is available in blade lengths to 14”. I have a 6, 8 and 10” size and use them about equally.
Pros: Balance, Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Easy to Use, Quality, Shape, Sharpness, Size, Strength, Versatile, Weight

So Disappointed
December 2, 2016
You know when you order a gift for someone and it turns out to be not as expected? I have no idea about the quality of the knife since it will be a Christmas gift; however, the monogramming is the huge disappointment. What I expected to be an engraved monogram is actually black laser letters which look cheap--as if they are just stamped on the blade. They actually look like they could easily wear off, and the font is completely different than the preview shown. Since personalized items are non-returnable, I guess I'll just be embarrassed and apologize for this not-inexpensive gift when it's given. So unlike W-S.
Cons: not as advertised

Absolutely Fantastic Knives
You gave a one star rating to one of the finest pieces of cutlery on the planet, yet your gripe was with a monogram that has nothing to do with Wusthof.
