The chef's knife is an all-rounder in the kitchen. With its traditional blade shape, it is one of the most frequently used types of knife. This all-purpose blade will mince, slice, chop and dice nearly any meats, fruit and vegetables. Use the pointed blade for small, detailed tasks, and the rest of the blade for larger cutting and chopping.
The jack-of-all-trades of the Epicure cook's knife conquers any challenge – from cutting an accurate julienne to disassembling venison.
The new Epicure range combines the lightness of a Japanese knife and the quality and safety of a German knife. This means Epicure embodies a new type of knife – one that fulfils all cooking styles and sets new standards in function and performance. The natural fibre and resin handle combines the comfortable feel of wood with the robustness and hygienic properties of plastic. The shape is wide on the front and tapered on the back and features a profile adapted to the natural movement of the hand. This results in an ideal grip position. Balance meets sustainability meets precision.
Although some Wüsthof products are dishwasher safe, we do not recommend that your knives and scissors be put in the dishwasher. Blades can knock together, damaging them, and if not washed soon after use, corrosive food particles can damage the blade. Rather wash your knives after each use with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
All knives require regular sharpening. Wüsthof manufactures sharpening options that suit all of their knives, including whetstones, honing steels and pull-through sharpeners. See the sharpening range here.
Wüsthof products come with a lifetime warranty, and will be repaired or replaced if there are any defects in workmanship or materials.
