Laser testing and unique Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensure each hand-honed cutting edge is 30% sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. The bolster provides ultimate balance while still creating an impressively elegant appearance, and the heel gives a safe, completely controlled handling experience. Allowing for easy sharpening of the entire blade, the precision forward bolster also makes it possible to utilize the full blade's length while cutting. A contoured handle complete with a full tang and triple-riveting allows for comfort as well as permanent security. Featuring the classic Wusthof trident logo, the handle is also made from synthetic, durable polymer.
