Wusthof ® Gourmet 5 Hollow-Ground Santoku Knife is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife I bought this knife about a year ago or longer. I use it daily. I keep it sharpened and it is one of the best knives I have. I bought one for my daughter and she uses hers all the time too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Time will prove if 5 stars! GREAT knife. Great size to handle and very sharp. The dimples help for food not to stick. I have only been hand washing and it does not tarnish or water stain. Time will tell if it lasts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than I first thought It's obvious when you see and hold this line of knives that they're a budget line but I've been so impressed with the ability. Blades are very sharp and when used with the Wusthof sharpener, couldn't be more satisfied with my purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from High-quality, lightweight knife - too lightweight? Wusthof doesn't fail to provide high-quality knives. This was to replace an old santoku knife I had that was worn out from years of use. The sharpness and balance of the Wusthof knife is fanastic - really easy to use, slice, chop, dice, etc. It's 5", so you may want a longer knife for bigger/heavier items (like squash). That's the only disadvantage of this knife - is that it can't handle as well some things that require a heavier hand, like smashing garlic or heavier produce. But I think it still fits really well into a home chef's knife collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for veggies! I've had this knife for almost 2 months now, and it's been a great addition to my Wusthof set. It's now my go-to knife for veggies. I'm really happy with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife! I bought this knife earlier this summer and I love it! Perfect for cutting up veggies for a salad, dicing, slicing tomatoes. The smaller size makes it easier for me to use than my larger chef's knife.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice feel in hand Though I was happy with the feel of this knife in my hand I was disappointed in the sharpness. It just didn't cut like I expected it to.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little knive Bought this guy about 3 months ago. Very satisfied. Not as great as my Shun, but it does a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent economical compromize A nice companion to the more expensive classic line. Economical, but good quality, excellent size and balance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy sharp knife for chopping I've been using the Classic line of Wusthof knives for 10 years and absolutely love them. My son bought the Gourmet Santoku knife for me last week (at my request) for my birthday. I'm an avid cook and have been wanting a knife this size (I used a friend's Santoku (different brand) a while back and it was always my knife of choice when I cooked for her). I've been using my new knive for one week, mostly for chopping vegetables and fruits. It's so nice to have a new sharp knive blade! My only complaint is that I compared it to my existing Wusthof knives and noticed the Santoku handle is different - it felt lighter in my hand. I realized after the fact that this version is a Gourmet and I am used to using the heftier Classic line. I will keep it, though, as I'm sure it will earn it's place in my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Size, Very Sharp! We bought this item to fill out our Wusthof block, and we have been thoroughly pleased with it. It's a great size - not too small, not too big and heavy - and chops very well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Utility Knife This knife is so perfect for almost anything you need to chop. It chops tomatos and avacados with ease and food doesn't stick to it! I highly recomend adding this knife to your block!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife! We have a huge garden and this knife works for cutting every vegetable we grow. It has made the "food preservation season" enjoyable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Knife This knife is really awesome. Probably my favorite in the set. It really is great with small herbs, onions, garlic or even a tomato. I'm so glad I added it to my collection!
