Product description

Fully forged from one piece of fine German steel, the 20cm Wusthof Classic Cook's Knife is considered to be one of the world's best cook's knives as this style and length is possibly the most versatile knife in a chef's collection. Cook's knives are used for all major tasks including carving, slicing, chopping and dicing. Once you own a knife like this, you'll be surprised at the difference a really good knife can make. Wusthof Classics feature thick bolsters with complete finger guards, triple-riveted full-tang handles, and multi-functional blade surfaces designed cleave, crush, and pound as efficiently as they cut. The triple-riveted handles are perfectly balanced and the razor sharp blade is tempered to the optimum 58 Rockwell for durability and double ground at 20 degrees.

1.0 out of 5 stars BUYER BEWARE: A decent knife, but NOT a Wusthof
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 October 2020
I bought this knife a couple of years ago, and suspected it was a fake after a month or so, when the "W" logo fell off the handle. It was a decent knife so I was not entirely sure, even though it never seemed to hold its edge properly, no matter what I did with it. Now, however, I have got a genuine wusthof direct, and the difference is clear.

The genuine article is heavier, sharper and better balanced (the balance point on the fake is a little further back to the end of the handle. It is also made of a slightly different (presumably better quality) steel, even by eye.

In the picture the real deal is on the left, with an embossed red W on the handle. The other is an excellent fake, and a decent knife, but does not hold its edge. I may have been unlucky, but if you want to be sure, go direct.
