  • Mein Messer

    Nov 23, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very fine knives, sharp and great to hold
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: As it is part of my nature, when looking for knives for our new house I wanted one of the best, if not THE best set of knives a person could buy. They don't say you get what you pay for, for no reason. After over a year of living with my then ... read more

  • The Best Kitchen Investment

    Nov 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Razor sharp, well balanced
    Cons: Slightly expensive (but worth every cent)

    Summary: I was unhappy with the cheap cutlery we had in our kitchen and knew that good quality knives would make a world of difference, so I did some research to find a set of knives that would make prep work less of a chore and last forever. I found just what I ... read more

  • Grand Prix in the kitchen

    Aug 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect balance, good grip, holds an edge well
    Cons: Odd knives can be hard to find

    Summary: I've got an odd set of both Wusthof Classic & Grand Prix knives. Both have the same blades and built the same way although I'll give the nod to the Grand Prix because the handles - especially on the 8", 10" & 12" Chef models - are nicer to use for a ... read more

  • the best...but be careful!

    Apr 22, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Precision cutting at its finest!
    Cons: none.

    Summary: In my opinion, there' s no reason to have more than one knife and the Santoku knife from the Wusthof Grand Prix Series does the job well! The slight curve allows for the "rocking motion" necessary for efficient cutting. The grooves ... read more

  • Well-balanced knives with weight behind them.

    Feb 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: excellent balance, heavy weight, sharp blades
    Cons: some people do not like the weight

    Summary: When I was looking for a knife set after college, I wanted to get one that would last a long time. I read several reviews, including Consumer Reports, and narrowed my search to Henkels and Wusthof. However, many sources disagreed between which models ... read more

  • The Best are Cheapest

    Feb 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Balance,ability to keep an edge
    Cons: initial expense

    Summary: Ben Franklin was once rumored to have said "The best is Cheapest". True in Ben's day as well as the twenty first century. You can buy cheap knives and then you can replace them in a year or so. You can also buy cheap knives and have the blade come ... read more

  • Unrivaled Excellence

    Feb 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The grip and feel of the knife are unrivaled
    Cons: It can be a pricey, but worthwhile, investment

    Summary: Working in a professional kitchen almost forces one to invest in a quality set of knives. So when I went to a local store to invest in such a set, I was barraged with a variety of types. Ultimately, it was this set of knives that I fell in love with ... read more

  • I will never buy anything else!

    Feb 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Feel, sharpness
    Cons: Expensive

    Summary: Back when I didn't know much about knives and was living at home, I thought my mom's knives were just fine (I don't think they even had a brand name--they were just knives). When I graduated from college, she got me a set of Chicago Cutlery that seemed ... read more

  • Your Best Bet

    Dec 12, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: High Quality Tools
    Cons: a bit pricier than your run of the mill knives

    Summary: As a chef and former student of the CIA, I use my knives quite a bit. In the past I have worked with Henkels, F Dick and Chicago Cutlery to name a few, but the Wustof Trident Grand Prix is BY FAR the best set I have ever owned. The sleek ... read more

  • The Best Investment

    Nov 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: excellent blade and balance, comfortable grip
    Cons: expensive (but they're worth it)

    Summary: These knives are fantastic! I've gone from the cheap knives inherited from my childhood home, to the moderately good Chicago Cutlery of my young adulthood, to the ultimate in chopping, slicing and paring--Wusthof Trident Grand Prix. Like everyone else ... read more

  • Now thats a knife....

    Oct 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: perfection. no need for another knife
    Cons: you pay for what you get but get what you pay for

    Summary: More than likely if you're reading this review, you're interested in cooking. In my own opinion, I don't think anybody can be a great chef without at least trying out a Wusthof, for in every product or tool there are certain standards to go buy. In ... read more

  • The Perfect Knife

    Aug 29, 2000 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: great handling knife
    Cons: the price is high

    Summary: Peek into the home kitchen of a serious cook, and you're likely to see a Wusthof knife or two in the block. And for good reason: Wusthof is one of the world's top knife makers. This is a family-owned company has been making knives since 1814 ... read more

  • Superior Balance and Feel

    Aug 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great balance and comfortable handling
    Cons: individual preferences might steer you somewhere else, somewhat high price to relatively good for the quality

    Summary: All of the best kitchen knives are generally percieved to come from Solingen Germany, and the Wustof Trident Grand Prix is no exception. The quality that sets these knives aside from the others is their superior balance, feel, and handling. ... read more

  • Affordable Excellence

    Aug 8, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks, Feel, Ability to hold an edge
    Cons: Price

    Summary: I cook primarily Oriental dishes, which means that there is a lot of cutting. While the Oriental cleaver can manage the job, it is a crude tool in comparison with the Wusthof-Trident Grand Prix knives. When I started to shop for some kitchen knives, I ... read more

  • Sharper than a tack

    Jul 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sharp sharp sharp, great to hold and use.
    Cons: Little pricey, but worth it.

    Summary: I read an article on Wusthof knives some time ago where the writer claimed that it was possible to tell a serious home chef as they always have at least one Wusthof knife. I thought that was a bit pretentious and probably an overstatement; I am a ... read more

  • Sehr Gut!!

    Jul 19, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: quality, ease of use, style
    Cons: cost

    Summary: I was given a set of Wusthof-Trident Gran prix knives as a gift. I have never had kitchen knives that hold an edge so well and feel so natural in my hands. I have had Henkel & some cheaper knives, I like these best. I realize the cost is a bit more, ... read more

  • Investment Grade.

    Jun 25, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Single piece blade, keen edge
    Cons: Price

    Summary: I'm not a big cook. She's the gourmand. So why did I go out and spend this kind of money on a set of knives? Simple - I was looking for an "over-the-top" gift. Cut to me, in the kitchen, watching one of these knives "fall through" a ... read more

  • Best Wedding Gift We Got

    Jun 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great feel, solid weight, sharp
    Cons: not all styles available in Grand Prix style

    Summary: Before I registered for my Wusthof Grand Prix knives at Williams Sonoma, I had ordinary department store knives. They weren't something I had to think about--and when one dulled or warped, I threw it out. So, when I saw the ... read more

  • A cut above the rest!

    Mar 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Everything about these knives are a Pro
    Cons: None

    Summary: After using these knives for the first time in my Hotels Kitchen I had to go out and go Overboard and get every last piece that I could get my hands on. I am a very serious cook and demand high riggers from all my tools, especially my ... read more

  • Incredibly Competent

    Feb 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durability, Comfort, Balance and Control
    Cons: More Expensive, Should Hand-Wash

    Summary: I'm convinced these are among the best knives. Excellent balance, durability, comfort, and control. I can't think of anything that's wrong with them. Of course, you must keep them sharp by using a machine, sharpening rod, or stone, but that's a sign ... read more
