Description

Top-rated: As seen in The New York Times

The Ridge chef’s knife is the most innovative kitchen prep tool we’ve used in a long time. Ideal for slicing, dicing, chopping and mincing a variety of foods, the unique knife features holes that reduce drag and a deflecting ridge that pushes food away from the blade. This is the knife for potatoes, onions and any firm or starchy vegetable.

Great for the money
It is a great knife. Lighter than I anticipated. Great for the money as the next step up was 3x the price. It works well and is not difficult to clean.

Great Knife
Knife handles everything when preparing meals in the kitchen. It has a great blade that is "SHARP"! The ridge and the holes keep foods from sticking to the knife and slowing your progress. The only issue is the knife is lighter than I'm used to. Who knows this could become my new normal. Great knife, you won't be disappointed!

Great Knife
Last week I decided I wanted to try out my new knife, so I bought a pineapple. I got my new knife out and it was like pulling a hot knife thru butter. it was so easy. I had that pineapple peeled in no time. I have also used it to dice onions and apples too. It's fantastic. It's a nice addition to my set.

Great knife, but not for Lefties
The "ridge" is only on the right side of the knife which makes it useless for left-handed slicing. It's a fabulous knife otherwise - weight, balance, edge-holding, etc.

great technology
Excellent design on this knife. I hate chopping sticky items that stick to the knife. It is so quick to chop all kinds of items as they don't stick to the knife so there is no need to stop and clean items off to keep slicing when prepping your meal. I looked at this for quite a while since I wasn't sure I really needed it but it was totally worth it. I have just used this to replace my usual 8 inch chef knife.

A Nice Addition
I follow a friend of mine, who is a truly talented cook. When she recommended this knife, I took the recommendation to heart. I haven't used it much yet, but I really like it. When I slice or chop, slices slide off much more easily than similar knives without the ""ridge'. I can't say it's truly that much better, which is why I gave it 4 stars. But if you need a new knife, I would highly recommend it

Over-rated
We own numerous Wusthof Knives and thought this one as touted we be a great addition to the ""arsenal."" Alas, I find the non-stick holes really do not perform as advertised. I still prefer the Wusthof Santuku as my go to knife. This one is very nice, has a good feel to it, but..

Does the ridge get in the way of sharpening?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: While our knife is new and not in need of sharpening; however, the ridge is no where near the sharp edge so it should have no impact on the sharpening process.
Does this work equally well for Lefties?

Wustof Gourmet Ridged Chef's Knife...
A shopper on Apr 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Because the ridge is on the right side of the blade this added feature will not benefit lefties- the knife will work fine but not this added feature of the ridge which significantly reduces drag and reduces food sticking to the blade.
What is the best knif for cutting meat? What is the best knife for cutting raw meat?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This knife is made especially for right handed people and does an excellent job on vegetables. It is not intended for custting meat. I use a regular chef's knife for cutting raw meat and a slicing knife for cooked meat such as roasts.
