VERY sharp, has some heft but not too heavy.

In the accompanying video, I use the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 8-inch Chef's Knife to slice and dice bell peppers, slice and core tomatoes and take corn off the cob. All of it nearly effortless with this fine knife.

I liked that it had the heft of a fine knife but was not too heavy. It fit my hand very well and was comfortable to use. Recommended!

About this product


Both professional chefs and discriminating home cooks are familiar with the superior performance of Wüsthof knives, but Wüsthof has surpassed its own high-quality culinary tools with the creation of the Classic Le Cordon Bleu line. This knife collection combines Wüsthof's almost 200 years of forging expertise with input from the world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu school of the culinary arts in Paris, established in 1895. The result is a knife that looks similar to Wüsthof's Classic line but with much-improved features that are aimed to appeal to a high-end, professional customer.

The Cordon Bleu Difference

This 8-inch cook's knife is more lightweight than other Wüsthof knives, yet it retains the substantial balance and heft Wüsthof is known for. Less metal is used to form the high-carbon stainless-steel blade and half bolster (as in some Japanese cutlery), so professionals who perform repetitive cutting tasks should experience less wrist fatigue and greater agility with the knife. In addition to its excellent handling, the half-bolster design also allows for the entire blade, from butt to tip, to be sharpened on a steel, and a rear garnishing point can also be used to carve, tenderize meats, and remove eyes from potatoes or soft spots from fruit.

The blade on this cook's knife is mirror-polished--a process that hones metal fibers into a completely smooth surface to provide less resistance when cutting--yielding an extremely sharp edge ...
