Wüsthof Classic Chef’s Knife

Every man — whether accomplished home chef or borderline capable of microwaving a meal — deserves a basic chef’s knife. It doesn’t get more traditional than this one from high-quality German kitchenware company Wüsthof. A heavy 8-inch blade is more maneuverable than larger versions, and the knife combines size with ease of use. Even the TV Dinner Dad can manage this one. We promise.
