Wusthof Classic Wide Paring Knife

More versatile than standard paring knives, this one features an extra-wide 4"-long blade that nimbly trims, peels and slices fresh produce. Its added width comes in handy for crushing garlic and scooping up cut ingredients for transfer to a bowl or pan. The acutely angled edge of the high-carbon steel blade retains its sharpness beautifully and is easy to maintain. Wide spear-point blade is ideal for peeling, slicing and dicing small fruits and vegetables as well as crushing and transferring ingredients. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control. Ergonomic handle is fade-resistant polymer with rounded edges, for a comfortable fit that feels like an extension of your hand. 4"-long blade; 3 3/4"-long handle; 2.3 oz. Made in Germany.

I was disappointed in this knife. I have nearly all of the classic knives and expected this one to be as well made, but it wasn't. It was very dull and I had to sharpen it. Self sharpening isn't as good as professional so it still isn't as good as some of my older knives. Also, I have noticed that recent purchased knives have weak handles that break easily. Most of my other Wusthof knives have serviced me for up to 40 years without problem.
Pros: Balance, Weight
Cons: Quality, Sharpness, Dull
