    Pros - one of the "good names" for a reason. good steel, decent edge, takes a beating
    Cons - handle shape not comfortable for all, handle may get slick
    Wüsthof is one of the "big name" Germans for a reason, over 200 years. Their professional tier lines are all solid, and the choice may end up being just personal taste over the exact look/material of the handle. If you like this style or don't care either way, definitely worth a look. Picked up this to live in the knife block at home as the go-to Chef's blade when I found it at a good sale price. Like other Wüsthof knives, the 8" chef's in the Grand Prix II range is a solid choice. The typical good German stainless steel. Out of the box it has a decent edge. With some basic steeling & care in use, it holds the edge well enough. Weight and balance are good. Would argue that you could make something like this the 'benchmark' of what a high quality professional knife should deliver. I pinch grip and didn't notice it, but some people I've had use it pointed to the handle not being shaped the way they liked (it is a bit more ergo and I find it fine when I've gripped it "hammer" style to see what they meant, but if you mind that sort of thing it's worth noting) & that the material seemed to get a little slick when working with wet hands (I find it no better or worse than others with similar handle materials, but again, noted). It shows up on sale infrequently, but definitely a better value when it does.

    Pros - Awesome!
    Cons - Some one stole it...Twice!!
    This knife one of the only knifes I ever use!! I don't need a serrated knife I can get this thing razor sharp!! the only other two knives I use for work is my parring knife and my slicer! The only two things it can't do! The edge stays great with regular honing, and the feel is a dream. I have had three of them that's how much I like them, and apparently two other people liked them enough to walk off with them!!
