Wusthof Classic Cook's Knife A big knife for small hands, the Wusthof Classic 6" Cook's knife is the full size workhorse Chef's knife scaled back for the less ham-handed cooks of the world. Well balanced and lighter than the 8" version, the construction details and uses of this blade are just the same. Good for anything from mincing herbs to chopping small bones and frozen food, the heavier forged style of this blade can handle most common kitchen chores.

The Cook's knife can be as simple or as complex as you like. Ground with a wide European style bevel that's strong and easy to sharpen, some chefs prefer to taper the bevel so it narrows towards the tip for mincing, and is stouter towards the bolster for heavy chopping. The Solingen stainless steel has good edge holding properties yet is easily sharpened with a few strokes of a sharpening steel, making maintenance easy.

Not as refined as the lighter Santoku blade, the cook's knife is capable of more, but will also do the lighter slicing work that is the Santoku's specialty. You'll notice the difference in efficiency between the two, but if you need an all around general purpose knife the Cook's knife is a good choice.

Full tang slab handled construction is gap free and easy to clean. For best results, wash and dry the Cook's knife by hand to protect the polish and the edge from the harsh treatment of a dishwasher.
