Tapering from the spine for strength and durability, the flexible blade of the Wüsthof Classic 5 Boning knife is designed to excel with nearly any meat, including chicken, lamb, ham and beef. It offers an inward curve for separating meat from bone, and a sharp tip for trimming fat and sinew, in addition to cutting tendons.
Ranking among the most popular of knife styles and sizes, the Wüsthof Classic 8 Cook s Knife is an essential for any chef. The front portion of this blade is well-suited for detailed tasks, leaving the rest of the long blade to handle larger cutting and chopping chores. An indispensable kitchen companion, this knife can be used for meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping nearly any food.
Delicately carving any kind of meat, the blade of the Wüsthof Classic 9 Carving knife is ideally sized and shaped for larger birds, roasts, barbecued beef and ham.
