Wüsthof Knives Review & Giveaway

2 Shares

Most products that I review at The Mama Report are new to me, this review is entirely different.  Nana has been fanatical about  Wüsthof knives for years.  I’m not kidding.  I have never met a woman so passionate about knives before.  She preached to my husband and I for years about their superiority,  before we finally broke down and purchased one …… and then another.

They really do cut smoother than any other I have used.  You might be thinking if a knife cuts, it works.  Well at least that was my philosophy before I tried Wüsthof.  There are no pictures that can accurately show how well the knives work.  And a video really can’t capture its ability either.  I was tempted to recreate one of those bad 90’s vidoes that shows how easily a knife can cut through a can and other random items.  But what in the hell do I need a knife to do that for?

I need my knife for more practical purposes.  In this instance carrots.  Beware.  This is a sharp knife.  Crazy sharp.  Don’t look the other way while cutting.  Notice the band aid.  Luckily no doctor’s visit was required.

The only way to truly understand the superiority of  Wüsthof knives is to try them for yourself.  Isn’t that usually the case for most things? Not only is it the clear precision cutting that the knife provides, but it is also the weight and design that are important.  And to experience these features, you just need to give a try.

But which one?   Wüsthof makes a wide variety of styles and sizes.  It can be a little overwhelming.  The knife I’m using in the pictures is a 6 inch Cook’s knife.  I find this to be a great all-purpose knife.  I also own a Santoku knife which I would highly recommend.   Both of these knives are handy to have in the kitchen as they cut so many different items with ease.

Wüsthof has been around since 1814 and I might be biased as I have German ancestry, but I think they have conquered all competitors.

Connect with Wüsthof via Facebook or Twitter.
