Every Wusthof Classic Series knife is still forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength, balance and heft.

The blade is ground and polished by computer, ensuring perfect tapering from bolster to tip, and the edge is then hand honed for precision slicing. The sturdy feel of this knife is achieved by the weighted bolster, which is considered to be Wusthof’s signature feature. The tang runs through the synthetic handle and is secured with three rivets. Wusthof Classic knives feature a special blend of high-carbon German stainless steel throughout the whole length of the knife for exceptional strength and balance. The knives also provide sharp, precisely tempered blades for safe, efficient use. Laser tested for accuracy, the unique, compound angle of the blade tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to create a sturdy, yet extremely sharp cutting surface. The blade also tapers from the bolster to the tip for added strength and flexibility. Another thoughtful detail includes the handles.
