Wusthof Epicure 6 inch Chef’s Knife Giveaway (RV $100) 11/29

For nearly 200 years, Wüsthof has produced professional-quality cutlery of extraordinary strength, balance and comfort.The Wusthof Epicure 6 inch knife is part of a new knife collection that required 2 years of engineering and the result is the most innovative and technically advanced Western knives that Wusthof has ever offered. I received the Wusthof Epicure 6 inch knife for this review and one Moms Own Words reader will win this same knife!

Wusthof Epicure 6 inch Knife Review

The first thing I noticed when using this knife is that it is comfortable to hold. It has a smooth wood fiber handle. The two-rivet handles are made of epicurean, which is a unique wood-fiber composite used in commercial kitchens that’s ultra-durable and hygienic. This is a heavy knife, weighing nearly 8 oz., which is twice as heavy as the 7 inch knife that I was typically using.

I tested the knife out on a couple of pretty big items. The first was a fresh pineapple. The knife has strength to it that makes light work of slicing up this pineapple. One of the features of the knife is the extra knuckle clearance of the USA-made Epicurean handle.

The next big item was a spaghetti squash. This blade is a newly designed wider blade that did a great job slicing right through this spaghetti squash. I’ve used other knives that have gotten stuck inside the spaghetti squash and I’ve had to nervously wrestle with them to get them out safely without hurting myself. Below you can see how I smoothly finished the cut.

I used the knife to slice through a lasagna. Another feature of the knife is an invisible ceramic coating that is supposed to make cleanup easy. The lasagna did rinse off the knife rather easily. (For proper care, the knife should always be hand washed).

I filleted chicken breast easily and also used the knife to dice peppers and onions. The bottom line is that this is a powerful knife that cuts with precision. It’s a pleasure to use and considering all of the features, this is a very impressive knife!

The following video demonstrates how easily this Wusthof knife cuts up a whole chicken.

About the Wusthof Epicure 6 Inch Chef’s Knife

Extra knuckle clearance. Perfect balance. From USA-made Epicurean handle to wide, ceramic-coated blade, it’s by design that an Epicure knife feels like it belongs in your hand.

Each blade has been treated with a revolutionary invisible ceramic coating to make cleanup easy, prevent food from sticking and protect against damage over time.

Engineer Bjorn Berger designed the wider blade shapes with a slight curve to enhance stability, comfort, and knuckle clearance.

ULTRA-HYGIENIC AND ERGONOMIC EPICUREAN HANDLE The Epicurean recycled-wood-fiber handles are made in the USA of the same silky smooth, ultra-durable material used to make professional cutting boards.

To create a knife of unmatched strength and stability, the experts at Wüsthof used almost 200 years of experience to rethink traditional bolster design. You’ll feel the results every time you use this knife.

The sturdy two-rivet handles are made of epicurean, a unique wood-fiber composite used in commercial kitchens that’s ultra-durable and hygienic.

The chef’s knife is the kitchen workhorse: chop, dice and mince meat and vegetables safely and easily. Lifetime warranty. Hand wash. Made in Solingen, Germany.

  1. Jeffrey says

    It would be nice to have a sharp knife here when cutting up fruits and vegetables, its a lot safer. Some may disagree but if the blade doesn’t need to be forced then it won’t slip thus cutting a digit!

  2. debbie jackson says

    love to win as good knives are essential to fun cooking

  3. Linda Kish says

    I have no nice knives. My knives are all about 40 or more years old so something new would be so good.

    lkish77123 at gmail dot com

  4. Deb C says

    I would like to win this knife because I want a Wusthof! I love a sharp knife but really can’t afford the truly good knives like Wusthof. This knife would be treasured here.

  5. Karen Glatt says

    I would love to win this knife because all of my knives are old, and they do not cut good! This is such a great knife, and I bet it can really cut through any food item that I have!

  6. says

    I have a few Wusthof knives and I love them. If I won this one, I’d probably give it to my son so he could have a decent knife.

  7. Mechele Johnson says

    I would love to win this as a gift for my husband who can’t stand that all of our knives are always dull because I use them wrong, according to him…. He would love this and I would promise him I won’t touch it!

  8. Rose says

    I would LOVE to have a chef’s knife. I have a $5 knife from ages ago at Kmart. It isn’t even safe. I inherited a Wusthoff small knife, and after that, I’m spoiled. I eat low on the food chain, that includes lots of chopping, and I’d truly appreciate this knife. I could really look pro with this knife!!!

  9. Shemp DeYoung (@ShempGames) says

    That is one great knife. When I was shopping for knives, I almost bought those, but ended up going with something less expensive (and it turns out much lower quality).

  10. Anthony Matias says

    I’ve been through a lot of knives.. Caphalon, Henckels, Global.. I could say that none of them can match the
    comfort elegance fine balance accurate sharpness of a Wüsthof. I would love to have this knife since the ones I have are so dull now..

  11. Harrison Hamada says

    Thanks for a very thoughtful review. Love the redesigned blade, ceramic coating and the improved ergonomics, I’m a little surprised at two rivets as opposed to three,. I class we learned that the reason for triple rivets was incase on failed, there were still two to keep the blade safe within the handle, but Wusthof has always produced great knives and I trust them.

    I was refered by wusthof, and look forward to reading more in your blog

  12. Jill A. Collins says

    When my ex-husband and I got divorced, he stayed in the house until I could legally get rid of him. While there, to earn money to support his drinking (he didn’t have a job) he had a yardsale and sold everything that was not nailed down – and some things that were! When I finally got the house back, I had to start over – I even had to buy a refrigerator. So to start I picked up a cheap set of knives and have been making due, but I’d love to have a good set again and this would be a great start!

  13. Carl says

    My wife does a lot of cooking for us and it’s almost always delicious. I know she’d love this quality knife. I’d like to win this as a gift for her. Thanks for the opportunity.

  14. Maryann D. says

    I would love to win this knife because I never seem to buy decent knives and I do waste a lot of money. So it would be super to have a good one to use.

  15. Rita M says

    It would be nice to have a sharp & efficient knife in the kitchen – I hate having to go through several knives before I find one that actually does the job.

  16. Desiree Dunbar says

    I would love this knife because I have a cheap set of knives that are so dull and I know this brand is high quality.

  17. Jessica says

    I would love to win! I’ve heard such good things about Wusthof knives but it simply isn’t in the budget. I also like the idea of a smaller chefs knife, I bet I would use it all the time!

  18. Katie says

    We have a few good quality knives but none this size. It would be great to add to our kitchen.

  19. Rochelle says

    I would love to win this knife because I need a knife for cutting squash and most my knives are dull. Thanks!

  22. Nikita says

    I love cooking…have been taking multiple cooking classes, assisting chefs, learnt knife skills on their knives but could never afford my own chef’s knife… I want my OWN knife to reach the next level in culinary world and what better than THE WUSTHOF! :)

  23. Aneesa says

    Currently trying to update my kitchen utensils and appliances. Every kitchen needs one good chef’s knife and Wusthof makes beautifully crafted, quality knives!

  24. Karen D says

    I so need some good knives! It is hard to keep cheap knives sharp, and dull knives are dangerous!

  31. Nick Lush says

    I am in high school right now and plan on going into culinary arts/restaurant management at the end of the year. I love to cook and the holidays are my favorite time. I will find an excuse to cook/bake for anyone. Last year I drove up to my aunts house to make Thanksgiving dinner, i was supposed to help her but she ended up helping me, but its ok i loved it, the only problem was all her knives were dull. This knife would very much help me out this holiday season

  32. Nicole-Lynn says

    I’d like to win this knife to complete my knife set. I’m missing this knife from my block set and it would be great to have to cut pineapples and rough things like you have shown in the above post! Thanks for the opportunity.


  33. Deb Anderson says

    All my knives are so dull, they are actually dangerous to use now. Would love to have a good new sharp knife like this!

  37. Cheryl Sanders says

    OMG! This knife is incredible! Amazingly enough, my husband collects knives but do I have a nice kitchen set? NO! Maybe it’s time for me to spend a little cash on something nice for me :) I love to cook and a good knife set is essential. Yes, it’s time to go shopping! Thank you for the giveaway!

  38. mell says

    I am taking technique classes, and one thing that I learned is that you must have the right equipment. I am slowly, but surely acquiring quality kitchen tools and this knife would be a great addition to what I already have.

  39. Cheryl Lund says

    I would like to win the knife because after reading all about the wonderful features it would be an asset to have one in my kitchen. Most of my knifes have dulled over the years of use and while I try to sharpen them at home it may have just ruined them in the process.
