Wusthof 8-inch Chef's Knife:
Recommending a chef's knife for someone else can be tricky — everyone's hands are different and a knife that feels great in my hand might not work for you. Having said that, this 8-inch Grand Prix II Chef's Knife by Wusthof is one very nice knife, indeed.
The knife's blade extends all the way to the end of the handle, providing strength and balance.
Forged, Not Stamped:
Shaped under high temperature from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, a forged blade offers extra toughness and resilience as compared with the less expensive "stamped" blades.
Made of slip resistant plastic, which is more durable and more sanitary than knives with wood handles.
Designed for maximum comfort, which is important because if a knife isn't comfortable, you won't use it.
