THIS GIVEAWAY IS OVER!
The new Wüsthof Classic 6-inch Utility Chopper is now available and it’s so much fun to use!
Overview: Wüsthof introduces a versatile Classic 6-inch Utility Chopper (model 4192) to its best-selling Classic collection of precision forged, full tang knives. Designed to make fast work of chopping a variety of vegetables, fruits, and other ingredients, the new Classic 6-inch Utility Chopper will be available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma for $99.95 suggested retail.
Features: Unlike standard utility knives, which have a narrow, straight-edged or serrated blade, Wüsthof’s new Classic 6-inch Utility Chopper features a wide blade – similar in shape to the popular Santoku knife – with a razor-sharp, reversed scalloped edge that cuts easily through the tough-skinned ingredients, such as summer-ripe tomatoes, or the crustiest of sandwiches, without shredding or tearing.
Ideal for everyday food prep, including chopping and slicing onions, carrots, salad greens, apples, bananas, pears and other medium and small size produce and fruits, the knife’s scalloped blade also aids in reducing blade “stickiness” when slicing though meaty eggplant, squash, and starchy vegetables, like white and sweet potatoes. Additionally, the new knife’s wide blade design facilitates scraping and scooping up chopped ingredients for convenient transport from the cutting board to pans and bowls.
Classic: Wüsthof’s best selling collection for generations, Classic full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon, stain-resistant alloy, which is engineered to enhance edge-retention and to facilitate re-sharpening. The steel used for the Classic line features a hardness that is approximately 58 on the Rockwell hardness scale. Completely buffed and polished by hand, the Classic knife blade is seamlessly attached to highly durable black handles with triple rivets for a totally hygienic and secure fit.
Classic knives feature a new handle design made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. Additionally, the shape of the handle is more rounded for a comfortable and sure grip.
Classic handles also include a new Wüsthof patented feature designed to eliminate the possibility of rusting or pitting of the stainless steel rivets or the knife’s tang, which could occur from contact with impurities, high humidity, or salt water.
Classic knives feature the company’s signature bolster/finger guard at the base of the blade, which accounts for the cutlery’s heft, and solid, balanced feel.
All Wüsthof knives are fully guaranteed to be free of defects in craftsmanship.

owned and managed company with a rich heritage, the first Wüsthof factory was listed as early as 1814 in official documents of the Duchy of Berg.

Here are a few photos I took as I tested out the Utility Chopper.
Slicing mushrooms is a breeze with this knife!
I sliced up a pork tenderloin and it cut like a dream!
I also used the Utility Chopper to make french fries. I found that I had to make more of a sawing motion due to the wetness of the potato.
I have used this knife to cut up tomatoes, green peppers and squash with great success. I highly recommend this knife!
