With Wusthof knives, you expect more, and you get more. The Wusthof Classic 7 Santoku with Asian Edge Knife Sharpener is a two piece set designed for ultra-efficient prep. Forged from high carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic Santoku is amongst the sharpest. This is also why Wusthof blades will hold their edge longer and stay pristine in sharpness. Featuring the precision bolster, the Wusthof Classic Santoku can be sharpened from the length of the entire blade.
The santoku is an Asian style blade that is ideal for dicing, mincing, chopping, and slicing through fruits and vegetables with ease. Showcasing a hollow edge, this knife creates air pockets that prevent food from sticking to the blade during use. The Classic 7 Santoku knife is so sharp and precise that it can cut paper-thin slices of meats, vegetables, and fruit. Having a wider blade, the santoku excels at chopping through thicker stalked and bulkier veggies. The wider blade also makes it more convenient to transfer food from your chopping board to a bowl or pan.
The Wusthof Asian-Edge Sharpener is a safe and efficient way to keep your Asian style blades in razor-sharp condition. The sharpening rods have been set to the precise angles for maximum sharpening of your Asian-style blades. With a soft grip handle and a no slip, rubberized guard on the bottom, safety is always a top priority. In addition, the Asian-Edge Sharpener is compact and makes for easy and convenient storage.
The Wusthof Classic 7 Santoku Knife is handmade in Solingen, Germany, where Wusthof has been run by the same family for several generations, dating as far back as 1814. This set has a lifetime warranty. It is best to hand wash all items.
