Summary

Perfect for all kinds of prep work, this versatile knife is ideal for everything from slicing and dicing to chopping and mincing.

  • Wüsthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention.
  • Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control.
  • Durable polymer handle is contoured for a comfortable grip.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent; rinse and dry immediately.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 16-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and prefect for small jobs Grabbed this knife because my wife felt the classic was too big for her small hands. This knife came sharp and with no damage. Small complaint, the tang did not fit well with the handle. There was a .5mm difference at the back of the handle. Nothing a little grinder and polish could not clean up...
