The narrow, flexible blade of the Wüsthof Pro 8 Flexible Fillet knife is forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel, and designed to perfectly adapt to the shape of any fish. This fine blade allows you to remove the skin, bones, and guts of the fish effortlessly. While it works ideally with panfish such as sunfish, perch, bluegills, golden shiners, crappies, and rock bass, this knife will also handle well with other delicate foods including chicken, fruits, and vegetables.
With Wüsthof s unique Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) and laser testing, the hand-honed cutting edges are much sharper and maintain blade precision much better than most other knives. Form and function harmonize, with the bolster delivering the ultimate balance with an impressively elegant appearance, and the heel providing a safe, completely controlled handling experience. The precision forward bolster gives access to the complete length of the blade, allowing for effortless sharpening of the entire edge, as well as full use of the blade while cleaning fish.
An ergonomic handle was designed with a unique two-stage construction. Working with raw fish and meats can be one of the most unhygienic tasks in the kitchen if the utensils are not cleaned properly. The Wüsthof Pro series uses an outer shell made of a slip-resistant material for the handle that can easily be washed. All Pro series knives have been NSF (National Sanitation Foundation)-tested and certified.
Each Wusthof knife is made in Solingen, Germany and comes with a lifetime guarantee.
