Great Knife, "Gunter Wilhlem 10' Chef Knife

Posted by Calbert McDonald on December 28, 2009 at 12:13 PM

The Gunther Wilhem chef's knife arrived about a week or so after the

steak knives. My wife expropriated it to put under the Xmas tree.

I've only just seen and begun to use it.


It' a perfectly beautifully designed and crafted tool. I love the

balance. And the edge is as good as anything I've got. It made

Christmas dinner, and now occupies the premiere place in our knife

collection. I'm treating it with the care and respect about which

we'd talked. Your steak knives graced the table for a prime rib,

sort of a Xmas cliche but delicious nevertheless.


Parenthetically, I thought I'd ordered an 8' chef's knife. The 10'

arrived. I knew the 10' was preferred, but I'd never used one. I

was afraid of the size and the heft, fearful I'd be unable to handle

it with comfort and skill. Silly man. It handles like a dream,

better than either of it's 8' predecessors. So if I owe you a little

extra, please let me know. If there was a miscommunication, let's

not correct it.


I'd like to order a second 10' Gunther Wilhelm chef's knife for my

brother-in-law who is himself an excellent cook and prides himself in

his collection of knives. He gave me the two Globals which I

treasure. He doesn't have a 10' chef's knife either and just had a

major birthday, which I would like to commemorate. The knife would

make a wonderful gift.
