Pro series knives are crafted in Solingen, German to stand up to tough day-to-day demands of even professional kitchens. High-carbon, stain resistant steel is used for the blade of the 6 Utility knife. This steel is rated at 56 Rockwell Hardness; this creates excellent edge retention.
A comfortable handle is just as important as a good blade. The 6 Wüsthof Utility knife uses a unique two-stage ergonomically designed handle, manufactured with two high performance synthetic materials. An advanced synthetic material is used for the inner core, while the outer shell is comprised of a softer slip-resistant material. Using these materials makes this utility knife hygienic. The NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) has tested and certified the Pro series.
All Wüsthof knives are fully warranted to be free of defects in craftsmanship and/or material. This warranty does not cover normal wear or use other than the intended purpose.
