A wonderful set for someone starting their knife collection or hobbyists beginning to explore cooking and Asian-style food prep, the Wüsthof Classic 2-Piece Asian Knife Set includes the Wüsthof Classic 3 Straight Paring Knife (4000) and the Wüsthof Classic 7 Hollow Edge Santoku.
The straight edge of the 3 paring knife offers close control for decorating, and readily handles peeling, mincing and dicing of a variety of vegetables, fruits and meats. Styled after a Japanese Cook s Knife, the 7 Hollow Edge Santoku knife adeptly handles fish, meats, and vegetables, excelling at slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping nearly any food. The blade offers a hollow edge that creates air pockets between food and blade while slicing. This feature prevents smaller and thinner slices from sticking to the blade as you use it. At a 7 length, this fine blade is well equipped to handle larger foods while the 3 straight paring is the perfect companion for the smaller details.
Each of these Wüsthof Classic blades is forged from a single piece of specially tempered, high-carbon stain-resistant steel for enduring strength and edge retention. Formed using proprietary Precision Edge Technology (PEtec), each hand-honed edge is laser-tested to ensure superior Wüsthof quality. The results of this are significantly sharper blades with much longer edge retention than other knives. While offering high functionality in the form of ultimate balance and a controlled handling experience, these knives also impress with their strikingly elegant appearance. To best protect fingers while cutting, slicing, mincing and dicing, knives of the Wüsthof Classic series feature a full bolster.
With comfort and secure construction in mind, a contoured handle completes each specialized knife with a full tang and triple-riveting. Each durable, synthetic polymer handle proudly presents the classic Wüsthof trident logo as a testament to their illustrious quality.
Each of the knifes in the Wüsthof Classic 2 Piece Asian Knife set is made in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
