That is the gourmet model which is the entry level line. The same steel as the more expensive classic but stamped instead of hand forged.

And what is the effective difference between "stamped" and "hand forged" in the hands of a non-chef?

Oooo! A Wusthof cimitar. Nice.

None of the Wusthof line is hand forged anymore, and to be honest, there is a good argument against hand forging of commercial knives.

As far as I know that is the only brisket slicer that Wusthof makes.

Here is a discussion from when it was on sale earlier in the month. Post 6 has links to the development of the slicer is anyone is curious about what makes it different that other slicing knives.

Hand forging is a weird descriptor. It's not the like the days of the blacksmith or samuri anymore.

The two modern types of forging you'll most likely to see are hot drop (I'll assume that's what "hand forged" means) and modern milling. Modern forging is in some ways similar to the stamp method, but with the benefits of a forged blade such as weight, balance, durability, a proper bolster instead of the front of a handle to protect your hand and (to a lesser extent with stainless steel compared) keeping a sharp edge on a blade.

Knives seem to be a hot topic around here. fwiw I like my chef's and paring knives forged for precision and balance. Boning and carving knives stamped for blade flexibility.

Yeah, they make a lot of other slicers, but this one was specifically developed to slice brisket and it works great!

I have to wonder why, when anyone posts about the Grand Slicer (full disclosure, I own one) it comes about that many have to post that you can get a Victorinox cheaper and it's better or just as good?

Of course, you can get a cheaper knife. And, of course, you can get a cheaper slicer, that will slice brisket.

Yep... As I said in the other thread, it's not for everyone, just like a Thermapen, but if you want an exceptional tool that does a great job, it can't be beat!

If I buy a knife designed for brisket will my food taste better? Don't need a dedicated slicer but I like the length over 10incher

I use mine for slicing most roasts that I cook, as well as tri-tips. It works fine, and no, your food will only taste as good as you cook. Same with mine. Unless I fall asleep, then it tastes less than as good as I can cook, but, as good as I cook while sleeping
