Wusthof presents a knife that fulfills all the classic functions associated with a paring knife, such as peeling and sectioning citrus, cutting tough-skinned vegetables, and spice preparation, while fulfilling a number of additional functions. The Classic Wide 4 Paring Knife features a thicker blade spine that allows the user to grasp the knife further up the blade, granting increased control. With a wider blade, the Wide Paring Knife becomes akin to a mini cook s knife , great for fine-chopping vegetables and effortlessly gliding through small dicing jobs. The knife also features a unique half bolster that grants the user more complete use of the blade s length.
The precisely forged blade is made using a laser-aided system, known as Precision Edge Technology (PEtec), that grants each knife an extremely keen edge. But, the crafting process is only half of this knife s claim to fame. Wusthof uses a single piece of the finest high-carbon stainless steel to forge each knife to 58 Rockwell hardness and to ensure that every product lasts for years in your kitchen.
The handle is constructed from a highly resistant synthetic polymer for a permanent fit and unlimited durability. This handle is triple-riveted onto the full-tang blade, imbuing the knife with optimum control and precision during every cut.
Wusthof crafts every knife in Solingen, Germany and protects them with a lifetime warranty.
