The reason the WUSTHOF Epicure 8” Chef’s Knife is called a "chef’s knife" is because it can do just about anything in the kitchen. This do-it-all knife is the #1 blade all cooks should have. Whether you’re cutting, slicing, carving, coring, pitting, peeling, dicing, mincing, chopping, or julienning, this chef’s knife can do it all. Specifically designed with a wider belly than most chef’s knives, you can get more leverage into what you’re cutting, allowing you more blade control for a safer cut. The extra surface area also allows you to easily transport ingredients from the board to the pot.

This special edition of the WUSTHOF Epicure has a half-bolster. This modification makes the blade lighter, allows you to use the entire blade when cutting, and is especially useful when it comes time to resharpen your knife.

WUSTHOF Epicure is a paragon of high-quality cutlery, made with two philosophies in mind: to have the durability and safety of German cutlery, and the lightness and sharpness of Japanese cutlery. The blade, bolster, and tang and are forged from a single piece of steel, creating a durable tool with a long service life. WUSTHOF’s high-carbon stainless steel holds a razor sharp 15° edge, and stays sharp for up to 30% longer than other steels. Each blade is designed to have a wider shape, allowing you to put more weight into the cut while increasing safety and ease of use. The extra surface area also helps transport food to the pot or pan quickly and cleanly.

The natural-feeling handle looks like walnut, but is made of durable wood composite and resin, ground down to smoothly and comfortably fit your hand. The ergonomic shape is contoured to adapt to the natural contraction of the hand; it’s wider in the front third, then tapered towards the back. This shape supports both a wide grip and a leading grip (also known as a pinch grip) comfortably, so you have more control and less fatigue.
