If your heart is set on Wusthof so be it, but I think the Richmond Artifex
is a better knife and substantially cheaper. The AEB-L steel is superior to the garden-variety stainless used by Wusthof, and the lack of a bolster makes it both lighter and easier to sharpen. AEB-L is a Swedish steel designed for razor blades, so it can hold very acute edge angles while resisting corrosion very well.
In any event, whatever you buy, it's hard to beat the service of CKtG. Certainly shipping should be extra fast seeing as you guys are neighbors!
