Description

EXCLUSIVE The engineers at Wüsthof went back to the cutting board and spent two years designing a new collection from scratch just for us. The result: The most innovative and technically advanced Western knives we’ve ever offered.

ALL-NEW DESIGN FROM BLADE TO BOLSTER TO HANDLE
Extra knuckle clearance. Perfect balance. From USA-made Epicurean handle to wide, ceramic-coated blade, it’s by design that an Epicure knife feels like it belongs in your hand.

REVOLUTIONARY CERAMIC-COATED BLADE
Each blade has been treated with a revolutionary invisible ceramic coating to make cleanup easy, prevent food from sticking and protect against damage over time.

NEWLY REDESIGNED WIDER BLADES ARE MORE USER-FRIENDLY
Engineer Bjorn Berger designed the wider blade shapes with a slight curve to enhance stability, comfort, and knuckle clearance.

ULTRA-HYGIENIC AND ERGONOMIC EPICUREAN HANDLE The Epicurean recycled-wood-fiber handles are made in the USA of the same silky smooth, ultra-durable material used to make professional cutting boards.

NEW FORGED BOLSTER FOR INCREASED STABILITY
To create a knife of unmatched strength and stability, the experts at Wüsthof used almost 200 years of experience to rethink traditional bolster design. You’ll feel the results every time you use this knife.

DOUBLE-RIVETED FULL-TANG HANDLE
The sturdy two-rivet handles are made of epicurean, a unique wood-fiber composite used in commercial kitchens that’s ultra-durable and hygienic.

VERSATILE CHEF’S KNIFE
The chef’s knife is the kitchen workhorse: chop, dice and mince meat and vegetables safely and easily. Made in Solingen, Germany.

Loved this knife until...
This was by far my favorite knife in the kitchen until after about 8 months of use the handle cracked and a small separation formed between the wood and the tang. Very disappointed considering the price and the fact that I was meticulous about hand-washing this knife after every use. After I noticed the crack in this knife I decided to check my other Wusthof Epicure knives and discovered that the handle had also cracked on my 3 1/2 inch paring knife.

After getting over my initial reaction to how aesthetically pleasing this Epicure line is, I fell in love with how the knife feels in your hand-- it feel like the thing that was missing from it. The handle is smooth and cool to the touch, and has well-placed indentations for the perfect pinch grip. I have every intention of not only adding to my Epicure collection, but buying a block set for my family this Christmas

You Won't Be Disappointed!
I've never really had a preference for knives until I used this knife from the Epicure Collection. I was amazed at how cool and comfortable the handle is. The blade is incredibly sharp and easy to clean.

I was sold on the knife before even using it because of it's environmental footprint. The salesperson at the store I visited told me that the handle is made of Epicurean material which is 100% recycled AND made in the USA. That is now just an added bonus because the performance of the knife alone speaks for itself.

I've used the knife every day for the last few weeks and am headed back to the store to purchase the rest of the collection this weekend

My new favorite knife!
I broke my favorite multi-purpose kitchen knife recently and I was looking for a replacement. I bought this at a very reasonable sale price. This was bigger than I expected but it is even better than my old knife. I use it for all my prep work. It has a great feel to it and it just slides through anything I slice or chop. My husband and I both use it for everything. I would definitely consider buying the other knives now that I see how good it is.

"Look, Feel, Use - Wonderful"
Went in to SLT to try out a few knives. I thought I would be walking out with a Shun Chefs knife, NOPE. After using 4 different ones, I knew the Wustaf was the one for me. The weight, feel, and overall usability is why I bought it. The Shun's especially felt very light, almost too light in my hand, and breakable. As soon as I picked up the Wustaf, I said ""that's the one""
After using it for a week, I can't believe I haven't had a high quality knife like this, nor will I ever cook/prep without it. It's sturdy enough to cut meats, and small enough to do fine knife work! The handle is beautiful to look at and feels great in my hand

Simply the Best
I have been cutting with German knives for years because of their superb quality and lifetime warranty. I wanted a better grip and the design of the Epicure 6"" looked like it would do that. It did not disappoint - for me, it's the best yet. I plan to ad the 9"" to my collection

My New Favorite Knife!
Tried this in the store & loved it! It is a truly gorgeous german knife and has become my go to knife for almost everything. So sharp, but easy to maneuver. I will definilty be asking for more of these knives for Christmas! I can't wait to start adding the other knives from this line to my collection
September 25, 2012
So good.
This knife good. The blade slides through a tomato without effort and the coating keeps food from sticking to the blade while chopping. I can fly through an onion while hardly wiping a diced bit from the blade side. So easy. So good. Get it Wusthof. Get it.
September 3, 2012
have been using a henckles pro 7"" santoku for the past few years for my main chopping / cutting, but this knife has become my go to for just about everything. incredibly comfortable and balanced... i couldn't recommend this knife enough. the only question is the ceramic coating, but so far i've had no issues with it

"Super comfortable, super sharp!"
You should always demo a high end knife before you decide to invest in one (or many), and this is why...

I went to Sur La Table determined that I would walk out with a Miyabi Artisan. I loved the way the Artisan grip looked since I have fibromyalgia, and it looked like it would fit my hand well and prevent my hands from aching after chopping for extended periods... BUT After trying out a few of the top quality knives with large grips, I ended up walking out of the store with this 6"" Epicure Wusthof. I loved it so much using it in the store, I didn't want to put it down, and I was so excited to use it, I went straight to the butcher after and bought some high quality meat to use it on!

After holding it, cutting with the knife and comparing it to the others, this one was so much lighter and comfortable in my hand! I couldn't tell much of a difference in the cutting quality when I was demo-ing all the knives in the store, since they were all such high quality knives to begin with. That being said, when I was getting the Epicure out of the box when I got home, I was fumbling around trying to get the knife out of the box and I accidentally shaved an extremely thin piece of my skin off my finger when I bumped my finger against the blade...so sharp!

So, is it worth the investment? Absolutely! You will have no buyer's remorse after buying this knife. It's a wonderful addition to my kitchen.

I'm ready to go buy the rest of the knives in the collection

Sharpening Issues?

Sounds like a great knife - what happens to the ceramic coating IF you need to sharpen it. Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Nothing will happen to it. The bottom edge of the blade (about 1-2mm) is not treated with the coating, so the edge can be sharpened again and again with no negative results
Do you need to use a steel?

Are you able to use a steel on this knife to keep the edge or do you not need this and it stays sharp? What kind of sharpener does anyone recommend?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can sharpen and hone this knife like any other knife. Because it is a Wusthof knife, I suggest you use a Wusthof steel and sharpener
Does this knife have the ""rocking"" motion like the Miyabi
A shopper on Oct 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: This chef's knife-like most-does have the rocking motion, but because the blade is not as curved as the Miyabi blade, the rocking won't be as fluid and pronounced
What are the dimensions of the blade? Specifically the width.
A shopper on Apr 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This blade is 1 3/4"" wide
What is the HRC for the steel used?

Thanks, sorry - know I just asked another question
A shopper on Feb 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These knives have a Rockwell hardness of 61.
Blade type

Hi there, what is the grind type on this knife?Also, could you tell me how thick it is roughly?Many thanks in advanc
A shopper on Jan 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These knives-like most western knives-are a double beveld adge grind knife.They are roughly 1/8"" at the spine
Can I bring this knife in the store to have it sharpened?
A shopper on Oct 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, our stores will sharpen each of your knives for $5 each
Have only seen the Epicure line of Wusthof knives sold by Sur La Table. Why is it not sold elsewhere?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2013
BEST ANSWER: At this time, Wusthof Epicure knives are exclusive to Sur La Table and cannot be sold elsewhere
