The Wusthof Gourmet Vegetable Ridge Knife offers a very unique design, with no other knife available on the market similar to this. Precision stamped from high carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Gourmet 8” Vegetable Knife is sharp and durable. With a unique blade design, this knife features holes along the side to cut down on friction, as well as a ridge on one side to help push food of the blade for smooth, effortless chopping. The holes in the face of the blade make the cutting edge almost 100% non-stick. When food hits the ridge on the face of the blade it falls off the blade directly onto the cutting surface.
The handle of the Wusthof Gourmet 8 Inch Vegetable Knife is made of ABS polymer. It is ergonomically designed to offer the best fit to the user’s hand. The handle is also resistant to high heat. The vegetable knife is ideal for chopping and slicing vegetables, fruits, and meats. This blade is perfect for thinly slicing starchy vegetables, such as potatoes.
