As a comparison, the 8" Legend is selling for $140. I don't think you'll find a Made in Germany forged Wusthof chef's knife for much less than $60. Should have the same blade as Wusthof's much more expensive knives, such as the Classic and Icon lines (just less expensive, less fancy handles on the Legend line).

The Wusthof Legende Chef's Knife offers a smooth, clean, exact cut and can be used on a wide variety of meat, vegetables, and fruits. The iconic shape is recognized worldwide. The rounded "belly" of this knife allows for rocking the blade for effortless chopping, mincing and dicing. If you're only going to have one knife, this is the one, the most important tool in the kitchen.

Wusthof Legende full-tang knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive Wusthof high-carbon stainless steel. The unique pebbled thermoplastic handle is ergonomically crafted for optimum comfort and sculpted to reduce fatigue and looks stunning in the kitchen. Wusthof Legende knives feature a slim, scaled down handle with a lightweight feel. The half bolster allows for the knife to be honed and sharpened the entire length of the blade and the heel bolster provides added balance. Each knife features a computer controlled cutting edge to ensure the final edge of the blade is precise and uniform from the tip to the heel. The Wusthof PEtec angle and tapered cutting edge reduces drag when slicing foods, allowing for seamless and effortless cutting. Each knife blade is completely buffed and polished by hand. Exclusively ours, Wusthof Legende knives are made in Solingen, Germany with a lifetime warranty.

Here's a decent review of Legende vs Classic, it talks about the handle and bolster a bit.
https://bladeadvisor.com/wusthof-...ic-review/

As the review mentions, they are both great knives...the thermoplastic handle of the Legende is every bit as good as the poly handle of the classic. For me (30+ years cooking) the real difference is in weight. I personally prefer a well balanced knife and wood feel. Out of these two synthetic handles, the Poly is going to give me more of a natural feel and a better balanced knife overall. The thermo will be lighter in the hand and may tilt forward more dulling the tip of the knife faster than the edge.

Price is nice though, this would be good to get used to how Wusthof makes their knives.

Cheers,
Imo this is better.

Forged vs Stamped: This Wusthof is forged so the knife is thicker and heftier vs the Global which is stamped and thus thinner and lighter. Depending on application or preference that's a pro/con, like a thinner knife is better for fish or squash, but a thicker knife is better of meat and other tougher foods. But in general forged > stamped.
Handle: Global handles are metal with dimples. Reviews are polarizing, its love or hate. You really have to try it out in person first. Additionally I read that long chopping sessions results in blisters. This Wusthof is thermoplastic, looks basic, but it is function over form: Its nearly indestructible and provides grip when wet. This is the material you'd usually find in restaurant kitchens for the aforementioned perks as well as it being non-porous so to not allow to absorb juices of chicken for example so its food safe. End of day, if you've never held a Global, probably shouldn't risk it.
Length: Preferred length depends from person to person, but the "standard" chef knife is 8". This Wusthof at 6" is already pretty short imo for an all purpose knife. At 5" for the Global, I'd say its a utility knife, not that its a bad thing but it'll just feel like a slightly oversized steak knife.
Thanks, sorry you did such a good job with all the details summarizing and I totally missed it. Thank you.

Thanks... Cutlery & More seller and shipper there, too. Interestingly, sometimes when C&M takes down the deal (on their main site) or it sells out... it's still posted on Amazon.

It's the same blade as Classic (see my OP). It's only the handle material/quality that's different.

forged steel, not sure if wusthof has updated classic to offer most popular knives without bolster, this knife doesn't have a bolster, similar to ikon line. Classic has the bolster. I guess it's nice to hold and keep your finger away from the sharp knife edge at the handle area if paring, but it also makes it harder to sharpen.

Wusthof has a decent lifetime warranty. The reason I say decent is bc years ago it was better than it is today. In the past, you sent a knife / knives back to them and they would send you a new knife that's the same quality.
Recently, I sent a few steak knives back —about 6 mths ago— bc my previous ones either had a broken handle or small rust spots and when I received new knives back, they looked similar but weren't the same quality as the ones I sent in. They work fine but it was a notable difference.

According to Amazon, the regular price is $79.99. The 8" is $139 regular price which is a significant percentage more. I cook a lot and have been for over 30 year, but I wouldn't ever claim to be an expert at knife skills or techniques. But I wouldn't buy this if I didn't have an 8". 8" chefs knives seem the most versatile to me, I use a 6" and like it but I don't use it a lot compared to the 8". However that's just my experience, others may feel completely different.
