A single piece of high-carbon stainless steel is used to forge the blade of the Wüsthof Classic 8” Bread knife, and formed with serrated edges to easily slice through thick crusts and rinds without damaging the soft, delicate insides of breads and other foods. While adept at cutting large loaves, the knife also excels with cakes, fruits, and fried food, with a triangular tip to help make it versatile for various tasks.
Each hand-honed cutting edge is created using Wüsthof’s advanced Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser-tested for quality, ensuring its edge is sharper and maintains blade precision better than most knives. Don’t let the impressively elegant appearance fool you, the bolster delivers ultimate balance and the heel facilitates a safe, completely controlled handling experience, function and form work together within this fine blade.
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 through large loaves of crusty breads. Wüsthof provides comfort as well as permanent security 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.
The Wusthof Classic 9" Bread knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
