Wüsthof uses a single sheet of high-carbon stainless steel to forge the Wüsthof Classic Wide 8 Cook's Knife into a wide, heavy blade with more heft over narrower knives, letting the knife take on more of the work for you. The 8 length makes it ideal for a variety of tasks - use the front portion of the blade for smaller, detailed work, and the rest of the blade for chopping medium-to-large portions. The extra width enables it to manage larger foods such as cantaloupes and roasts, and makes it convenient when scooping foods for transport from the cutting board to pots, pans, or dishes. An excellent choice when you need some extra weight in your blade without unnecessary length, take extra care with this fine blade: Wüsthof s cook´s knives have been purposely ground extra thin for the ultimate cutting performance, and chopping through bones can damage this extra-fine edge.
With laser testing and patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec), Wüsthof establishes that each hand-honed cutting edge is notably sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. Within the impressively elegant appearance of the Wüsthof Classic Wide 8 Cook's Knife, you ll also find high function: The bolster provides ultimate balance while the heel gives a safe, completely controlled handling experience. The full bolster design protects your fingers so you can cut, slice, chop and mince with confidence.
Comfort and construction are provided by the contoured handle, complete with a full tang and triple-riveting. Proudly presenting the classic Wüsthof trident logo, the handle is crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer.
Each Wüsthof Classic Wide 8 Cook's Knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
