The Wusthof Classic Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is designed with a thinner blade than the traditional Chef's Knife, at a 10 degree cutting edge.
This Eastern-style knife is designed for balance and agility and features a hollow edge which brings extra efficiency and speed to chopping, slicing, and dicing. This tighter angle is ideal for slicing meat, fish and produce.
Wusthof Classic full-tang knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive Wusthof high-carbon stainless steel. The handle design is made of a highly durable synthetic material known as Polyoxymethylene which features a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration.
Each Wusthof Classic 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. Wusthof Classic knives are made in Solingen, Germany with a lifetime warranty.
