The two piece Wusthof Santoku Knife and Board Set will please any entry-level chef and makes a great bridal shower or wedding gift.
The knife is forged from a single piece of specially-tempered, high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wüsthof Classic 7 Santoku knife offers a hollow edge that creates air pockets between the food and blade as you slice. This prevents the delicate pieces of meats, fish and vegetables from sticking to the blade as you slice. This Japanese chef's knife excels at slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping, deftly managing fish, meats, and vegetables. The 7" blade offers more leverage for cutting larger foods than shorter Santoku knives.
The second part of this attractive set is the handy bamboo cutting board that no kitchen should be without. To avoid unnecessary dulling of your knife s blade, as well as to prevent nicks on your countertop, you should always use a cutting board and never cut directly on a hard surface. With its high-density and easy sustainability, bamboo offers strength and durability, as well as enhanced safety as a naturally anti-microbial material. The bamboo cutting board included with this set measures 12.5 inches by 8 inches by 2/3 inches.
Created using Wüsthof s unique Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser testing, the hand-honed cutting edge of the Wüsthof Classic 7 Santoku knife is significantly sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most other knives. Form and function harmonize as the bolster delivers ultimate balance in an elegant appearance and the heel provides a safe, completely controlled handling experience. The forward bolster design allows for effortless sharpening of the entire blade, and makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length while you slice, mince, dice and chop with ease.
Wüsthof provides permanent security and comfort with the contoured handle, complete with a full tang, and triple-riveting. Formed from synthetic, durable polymer, the handle presents the classic Wüsthof trident logo as a proud signature to its sublime quality.
Paired with the handsome bamboo cutting board, this knife may very well become the most used, multi-purpose knife in your kitchen. This set makes an excellent gift for the gourmet chef in your life or anyone who may have been eying your Wüsthof knives
Each Wüsthof Classic 7 Santoku Knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Bamboo Cutting board crafted in China. Wusthof recommends hand washing both your santoku knife and the bamboo cutting board.
