Forged from a single piece of specially tempered high-carbon stainless steel, the blade of the Wusthof Classic 5" Utility knife is longer than a paring knife but more narrow than a chef's knife, allowing it to be a flexible, highly versatile kitchen staple. Its compact size and pointed tip make it useful for small and detailed tasks, yet the blade is long enough for larger work. This knife excels at paring, peeling, slicing, mincing, and cleaning vegetables or fruit, and can even help with herbs and smaller cuts of meat.
With Wusthof's unique Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser testing, the hand-honed cutting edges are significantly more sharp and retain blade precision much better than most other knives. Form and function harmonize in the bolster that delivers ultimate cutting control and balance while it leaves a lasting visual impression with its strikingly elegant appearance. The precision forward bolster makes the complete length of the blade accessible, allowing for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade as you slice, mince, dice and chop.
The contoured, ergonomically-designed handle completes this knife, with a full tang and triple-riveting to provide a comfortable experience as well as permanent security. The handle is formed from a synthetic, durable polymer and proudly presents the classic Wusthof trident logo as a testament to pure quality.
Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
