Wusthof starts with a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel and forges the Wusthof Classic Wide 6" Cook's Knife into a wide, heavy blade with more heft over narrower knives, which lets the knife take on more of the work for you. Its compact 6" length makes it ideal for a variety of tasks - the front portion of the blade is easily utilized for smaller, detailed work, and the rest of the blade excels with chopping medium-to-large portions. The extra width from spine to edge allows it to better manage larger foods such as cantaloupes and roasts, and makes it convenient when scooping foods for transport from the cutting board to pans, pots, and dishes. When you need some extra weight in your blade without unnecessary length, this knife is a fine choice. Take extra care with this excellent blade: Wusthof's cook's knives have been purposely ground extra thin for the ultimate cutting performance, and so chopping through bones can damage this extra-fine edge.
Utilizing their patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) process and laser testing procedures, Wusthof establishes that each hand-honed cutting edge is appreciably sharper and better at maintaining blade precision than most knives. Beyond the elegant, impressive appearance of the Wusthof Classic Wide 6" Cook's Knife is a knife that's highly functional, with the ultimate in balance plus a completely controlled handling experience. The forged, full bolster protects your fingers so you can cut, slice, chop and mince with confidence.
The contoured handle provides comfort and secure construction, complete with a full tang and triple-riveting. Proudly displaying the renowned Wusthof trident logo, the handle is crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer.
Each Wusthof Classic Wide 6" Cook's Knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
