Starting with a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, Wüsthof forges the blade of the Classic 12 Hollow Edge Salmon Slicer to have a rounded tip, which allows for maximum contact with the fish while preventing catching or shredding, as might be the case with a blade with a pointed end. The hollow edge of the blade prevents tender salmon flesh from sticking to the blade by creating air pockets between itself and the food as you slice. The rounded tip works with the super sharp blade to slice cleanly and avert any tearing or shredding. This thin, flexible blade is ideal for delicate fish like salmon, and also a useful blade for slicing other meats very thinly, including ham or roast beef.
Owing to Wüsthof s pioneering Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser-testing, the Classic 12 Hollow Edge Salmon Slicer has a hand-honed cutting edge that s notably sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. With the bolster offering ultimate balance and the heel delivering a safe, controlled handling experience, form meet function in the impressively elegant appearance. Sharpening the entire length of the blade is effortless owing to the design of the bolster, which additionally allows for utilization of the full length of the blade for slicing and cutting.
The contoured handle, complete with a full tang and triple-riveting, provides comfort as well as secure construction. Comprised of a synthetic, durable polymer, the handle is proudly finished with the classic Wüsthof trident logo.
