Designed for professional kitchens, the Wüsthof Pro series knives were designed by chefs for the extreme strain of heavy day-to-day use in commercial kitchens. The Wüsthof Pro knife series is forged from 56° Rockwell hardness, high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. This extraordinarily hard blade will retain its sharpness and edge for longer periods of time than most kitchen knives, perfect for high-use knives found in professional kitchens. The ergonomic handle allows for a comfortable grip, allowing a chef to use these knives for greater periods of time without discomfort. The handle is made from two materials: the inner core is crafted from a synthetic material providing stability, and the outer portion is crafted soft, slip-resistant hygienic material to ensure that you do not lose control of your knife.
No matter which Wüsthof knife series you choose, you will find a high-quality Wüsthof knife for every kitchen need.
