One piece of high-carbon stainless steel is used to forge the blade of the Wusthof Classic 5" Santoku knife, formed with a hollow edge that creates air pockets between the food and blade. This design prevents the delicate slices from sticking to the blade as it s used. Ideal for cutting fish, meats, and vegetables, this Japanese chef's knife excels at slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping.
Wüsthof uses laser testing to ensure that each hand-honed cutting edge is truly superior to other brand knives in both sharpness and maintaining blade precision. Form and function find harmony as the bolster delivers ultimate balance with an impressively elegant appearance and the heel provides a safe, completely controlled handling experience. The precision forward bolster offers access to the complete length of the blade, which delivers effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade while you slice, mince, dice and chop.
Complete with a full tang and triple-riveting, the contoured handle furnishes a comfortable grip and provides permanent security. The handle is constructed from a synthetic, durable polymer and displays the classic Wüsthof trident logo as a proud testament to pure quality.
The Wusthof Classic 5" Santoku knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
