abunda_amazon_reviews I think we got a fake. Take a look at the photo. This is supposed to be the red sticker? It looks pink to me. Also, the laser engraving on the blade looks different than the rest that I’ve seen. In addition, there were plenty of scuff marks and fingerprints on the handle. Oh, and it didn’t come in a Wusthof sleeve. It came in a clear, generic sleeve with a Zwillings sticker on the back.;;Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2018;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Did I get a fake?;;ASSYRIAN;;;I purchased this knife in 1993 during as my first "real" knife in my first year in culinary school over 20 years ago. This was back when it still read "Wusthof Trident" on the blade and I remember plopping down almost $200 when I could barely afford to put gas in the car to get to work after classes. I have used this knife to cook countless meals and I love it. Feels and performs better than any other IMO. In the 20+ years, especially early on as a college student, I have not been "careful" with it in the least and she still looks and performs great. She has been through many a dishwasher (don't do that!) riden hard and put away wet and that steel has never had a pit or rust spot on it. I will post a couple pics as I was just spending a little time with her on the tri-stone and I was thinking of all the special occasions that knife has been apart of. I used that knife to cook the dinner the night I asked my wife to marry me. The days of family visits after my son was born. Get togethers after losing a loved one. That knife and I have been been through a lot. The finish on her face shows some wear but I can tell you a story about each of the major blemishes. :) I wrote this review because I am about to pass her on to a young family member showing an interest in the culinary arts and started getting all sentimental. lol If they are still making them anything like they did twenty years ago, buy it.;;Reviewed in the United States on November 9, 2015;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;My favorite. Twenty-two year review.;;The Chef;;;I've been a professional cook/kitchen manager for over 5 years. I bought this knife over a year ago and I love it. Every minute I get to use it. It looks great, fellow cooks and chefs know Wustof well, and I use it at home and in the professional kitchen where it gets roughly 10 hours of use 5 days a week at least. I have a whetstone I use on it on occasion and I use a honing stick on it more often. It still cuts perfectly. I've tried out a lot of knives over those short 5 years from coworkers and friends, and other personal knives I bought; but this is the best knife I've ever wielded. I work mostly with chicken, beef, pork, and veggies where I sometimes prep for hours and it still isn't dull. If you're someone new to cooking looking to buy the best knife on a whim, this may make you love cooking after you get acquainted, it's heavier than some on the market, but this is the real deal. The one you can depend on. The one you keep clean after every use, to know where it's at all the time, and hopefully come to know well.

Now if I'm in someone else's kitchen I long for my Wustof when I have to struggle with a dull knife to mutilate a tomato! Note: It's on the bigger size, so more recommended for taller folks.

This line is chef quality. My hubby and I are gourmet cooks, and we love them. We bought the sharpener as well, and they are easy to keep sharp. They are well-balanced, and I like that there is no metal protruding from the handle to make your hands sore when cutting tough foods. These are much nicer than our Cutco knives. It feels like we are cutting butter when we use the proper motion when cutting food. Instead of doing a hard chopping motion straight down, if you glide through the food in a forward glide type motion, the knife is effortless to use.
