Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu Hollow Ground Chef's Knife, 8 inch : Whether you're cubing meats, chopping tough-skinned vegetables or slicing cheese, the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 8" Hollow Ground Chef's Knife features hollowed edges that create air pockets to prevent foods from sticking to the blade. One of the most multipurpose kitchen knives you can own, the Wusthof chef's knife both finely dices onions and herbs and slices hard processed meats. The Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu collection is the first cutlery to bear the name of the world's most renowned culinary academies. Created by Wusthof and Le Cordon Bleu head chefs, the cutlery features a specially designed half-bolster that allows cutting and sharpening along the entire blade edge. Compared to the Wusthof Classic knives, the Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu chef's knife is 30% lighter for easier handling and repetitive cutting. The Wusthof Le Cordon Bleu 8" hollow ground chef's knife is also ideal for mincing parsley and cilantro and trimming melon rinds and bread crusts. Perfectly balanced for optimum control and cutting ease, the Wusthof chef's knife is precision forged of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel.

For extra sharpness, each mirror-finish edge is honed to a 14-degree angle compared to a conventional 20 degrees. The seamless, hygienic synthetic handle is triple-riveted with a full tang to ensure a comfortable, slip-resistant grip.

I've been using a kitchen aid chef's knife for years. I always thought that my knife was a good one, and it was what I was used to. But then I got my Wusthof and it was like going from a volkswagon to a Mercedes! This knife is well balanced and very sharp! I get giddy just thinking about using it!

This works like a dream. You know exactly how much usable liquid you have. Easy to clean. I like the extra filter on top to catch the big stuff. My only complaint is that the lid/filter doesn't fit real well and falls off easily. So I just hold it flat and no problems!

I have been looking for something like this for years! This little skimmer is perfect. No more burning your fingers trying to skim fat from soups and stews with a spoon. This fat skimmer has a nice long handle and it does the job much quicker. It's very durable, made of stainless steal. And it looks good too!
Yes, you should get one too!
