WÜSTHOF has fantastic value for money with its Gourmet series The knives have the same high quality WÃ¼sthof stands by. The blade is laser cut from a single piece of steel (chromium-molybdenum-vanadium). The polypropylene handle is attached to the blade with tightly-secured rivets. The blade runs through the entirety of the handle. The result is a knife that looks very similar to the knives from the Wusthof Classic series. But because of the production method the Gourmet knives considerably cheaper. Many users find the lower weight an advantage as well. The Gourmet series is very comprehensive so anyone can put together their ideal knife set.
The chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel retains its sharpness whilst also being able to sharpen easily. Although these kitchen knives can go in the dishwasher, we advise anyway to wash them by hand.
Please note:this knife has an unusual tip! The tip appears to be broken off or damaged but Wüsthof made it round for safety reasons. With a non-sharp tip you namely won't hurt yourself as easily.

I’d expected this to be a bit better than my old cheap bread knife, but had kind of assumed that bread knives work by being serrated, so there wouldn’t be a huge difference. In reality it is a huge improvement, especially on very soft or very crusty bread, as it really bites into the crust, then slices very cleanly.
