Forged from single piece of specially tempered high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wüsthof Classic 5" Utility knife is longer than a paring knife but narrower than a chef's knife, allowing it to be a highly versatile kitchen staple. The size and pointed tip make it useful for small and detailed tasks, yet still making it long enough for larger work. It is perfect for paring, peeling, slicing, mincing, and cleaning vegetables or fruit. Additionally, it can even help with herbs and smaller cuts of meat. The serrated edge cuts easily through tough exteriors without crushing tender interiors.
Wüsthof’s unique Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser testing results in hand-honed cutting edges that are 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most other knives. The bolster delivers ultimate balance while still creating an impressively elegant appearance, and the heel facilitates a safe, completely controlled handling experience. With a precision-forward bolster, sharpening the entire blade is effortless, and you’re also able to utilize the full blade's length while cutting. Wüsthof provides permanent security as well as comfort with the contoured handle, complete with a full tang, and triple-riveting. Crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer, the handle proudly displays the classic Wüsthof trident logo, a signature of pure quality.
Each Wüsthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
