The Best Chef's Knife

The Best Chef's Knife

After an extremely close voting round, the Wusthof Classic Cooks Knife has cut through the competition as your choice for Best Chef's Knife. You praised it specifically for its durability, hand-protecting shape, heft, balance, and of course, sharpness.

This was one of the closest votes we've ever had, and the fierceness of that competition was a win for everyone. The fact that the Victorinox Fibrox's much lower price point didn't allow it to run away with the vote really speaks to the quality of the Wusthof and the Shun, and the knowledge base our audience brings to the table.

On the other hand, those that don't need or can't justify a blade at the Wusthof's price point have a fantastic, affordable option in the Victorinox Fibrox.

We'll be running lots more Co-Op segments in the future across all product categories, so let us know what you want to see.
