The elegant design of forged Wusthof Grand Prix II knives is an update of the classic German three-rivet handle with the same sharpness, durability and comfort.

  • Comfortable to use due to slightly rounded base of handle. It fits easily into the palm, no matter what size your hand is.
  • Bolster, or metal that separates the blade from the handle, extends to end of blade and provides good balance for easy, non tiring cutting.

  • recommends washing your knives by hand; then immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts. They may stain the surface of your knives.
  • Always use a wooden cutting board to preserve blade sharpness. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after you've used a knife.
  • It's best to store your Wusthof knife so its edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Lifetime Wusthof guarantee against material and manufacturing defects, with normal use and proper care.

Wusthof is a reliable brand, which is one of the many reasons I chose it. I purchased 4 knives, a turning knife, 2 x 8 inch knives and a 9 inch for myself. Two of these knives were gifts - recently our 1st year Apprentice Chef won 'Apprentice of the Year' at cooking school and one was a gift for him (it was a Grand Prix knife, which you can't get in Australia, so even better), and the second was for my Mum for Mother's Day, Mum is not that much of a cook and wusthof are very easy to use and to sharpen. Thank You.
