Product Description

The sharp, serrated blade of this knife cuts tomato and other fruit skins perfectly without squashing. The knife also works beautifully as a bar companion for cutting lemon wedges and for spearing cocktail onions or olives with its forked tip. Because of its portability, this tomato knife is also suitable for picnic and other outdoor food cutting.

Part of the Classic series, this knife represents two centuries of unexcelled Wusthof craftsmanship. Like other cutlery in the series, it's hand-forged from a single piece of stainless steel for maximum strength; the hand-polished blade is exactingly calibrated to be hard enough to resist dulling yet soft enough to take a keen edge when it's honed or sharpened. Dishwasher-safe and with a traditionally shaped, ergonomically designed handle that is triple-riveted for durability, this knife brings a guaranteed lifetime of low-maintenance cutting to its owners.

PEtec--Precision-Edge Technology

New Wusthof technology offers superior sharpness!

The latest cutting performance tests carried out by the FGW (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e.V., a German research association for tools and materials based in Remscheid) confirm that Wusthof forged knives offer the best quality when compared to other well-known, single-layer brands.

PEtec

The extensive tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 8442-5. Wusthof knives have a considerably higher ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) and maintain this performance for an extremely long time (TCC = Total Card Cut).

When compared with the winners in the "cook's knife" category awarded by German consumer organization "Stiftung Warentest" in its 1st edition of 2008, forged Wusthof knives featuring the new PEtec technology produce a result which is about 20% higher.

The Technology:

  • Blades are measured by a laser before sharpening
  • Computer programs calculate precise sharpening angle for each blade
  • Knives are then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots
  • Knives are given a final polish using a special disc

The Benefits:

  • Extremely high initial cutting performance
  • Exceptionally long edge retention / long service life of blade
  • Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade
  • Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality

PEtec from Wusthof--superior sharpness for professional and home cooks!

How Wusthof Knives are Made

Wusthof knives are known for their outstanding sharpness. By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so).

Evolution
The evolution of a precision forged knife

Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel.

Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps.

1. Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel
2. Precision forged piece
3. Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell
4. Polished
5. Scales of handles and rivets
6. The Wusthof Cook's knife

Types of Blades

The Right Blade for Every Purpose

The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended.

The Differences:

Straight-edge blade: The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.

Serrated-edge blade: The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.

Hollow-edge blade: When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.

Cleaning & Storage

Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment

If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.

Wash

For proper storage we recommend the following options:

  • Knife blocks in a variety of shapes, colors and configurations. The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor.
  • Magnet Bars in wood, synthetic material or aluminum. Two extra strong magnet segments provide a safe, easily visible and space-saving storage option.
  • Cook's cases in rolls and briefcase styles. This is the ideal method for professionals to store and transport their tools safely.

When I began collecting Wüsthof-Trident Classic knives twenty years ago, I chose the basics first: cook's knives, parers, slicers, utility knives, steak knives, boning & filet knives. I acquired them one or two at a time, always on sale, because this cutlery has been an expensive investment. When Wüsthof added a tomato knife to this line, I bought it even though I wasn't sure if I would like it or use it a lot. Now I recommend this 5-inch tomato knife to everyone. Its serrated edge hasn't needed sharpening ever, and it cuts, slices, dices, and chops fresh tomatoes so quickly. The forked tip is great for taking out the stem ends of tomatoes. I've never used my tomato knife on anything other than tomatoes, which is why I think it has stayed so sharp. I use my 8-inch serrated bread knife for slicing bagels and breads, and my 5-inch serrated utility knife for cutting citrus and other fruit. Also, I hand-wash and dry this knife and keep it stored in a wooden block.

You don't have to be a gourmet cook or have your own TV show to find good use for this knife. Anyone who has ever needed to make neat slices of ripe tomato in a hurry and ended up wishing that he or she had sharpened all the knives _yesterday_ is a person who will appreciate the ease with which this knife does the job. Anybody who has ever resorted to slicing tomatoes and/or fingers with a bread knife is going to love this knife.

It's use is not limited to tomatoes; I use my knives for whatever I please, and I use this one for slicing all sorts of foods that are too soft for easy even cutting. Ripe peaches, soft cheeses--that sort of thing; it's not big enough and it's too sharp to be really safe as a bread knife.

If you are peeling the tomatoes, though, you may want a straight-edged paring knife of some sort; this serrated blade doesn't do the neatest job on that part unless you make a work of art out of it. It doesn't bother me, because I never peel tomatoes unless I'm cooking them.

I know it's heresy and not classy at all, but I put it in the dishwasher. I lay it by itself on the top rack, so that nothing will knock against it; I wash all my good knives that way, and some of them are over twenty years old and still look good and hold an edge, so why not? Life's too short to spend it hand washing things that are clearly said to be dishwasher safe.

This knife is incredibly sharp. I didn't think that I would like a speciality knife, but this is very versitile. I like the "forks" on the tip to pick up the tomato slices, or pickles or onions. Very smooth cutting, but be careful it is very sharp.

This knife works as advertised and is a fine knife in-and-of-itself; however, I find that the Wusthof Classic 5-Inch Serrated Utility Knife ends up being a better tomato knife primarily because the pointed tip (as opposed to the forked tip on this one) makes short work of cutting out the rough core where the tomato was attached to the vine. The forked tip of this knife seemed like a useful feature and was the primary reason that I purchased it but in reality it has never lived up to its perceived usefulness.

While this is a good knife, I would normally of given it 4 stars, the single bevel grind on this knife basically ruins any advantage this knife has for the left handed person.

I always thought a knife was a just a knife. But this tomato kinfe really does make cutting tomatoes a pleasure. No more wondering if the slices will come out nice. Works nice on mozzarella too!

This knife slices through tomatoes easily and makes me wish that instead of buying the substandard Cutco knives from my daughter's friend that I would have just bought more of this brand. Wusthof is excellent quality and I will buy more of this brand.
