Product Description

Tough polypropylene handles with full, visible tangs and the traditional three rivets distinguish Classic knives from Wusthof's other cutlery lines. Otherwise Classic knives are identical to other Wusthof knives, embodying all the virtues that have earned the German manufacturer world renown. The principal parts of a Wusthof knife--blade, bolster, and tang--are forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, and the blade is precisely tapered from bolster to tip and from back to hand-honed edge. The blades and beautifully formed bolsters are not as thick as on some knives. As a result, despite their heft, strength, and durability, Wusthof knives are pleasingly delicate and marvelously balanced in action.

This 7-inch santoku is a Japanese cook's (or chef's) knife, featuring a low-tip style with a broad blade. The cutting edge is minimally curved, so it provides less rocking action than a European-style cook's knife. For straight-down slicing and precise chopping, however, it's superb. Alternating hollows on each side of the blade create air pockets, allowing slices to fall away cleanly. This knife should be hand washed.

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.

About Wusthof

I was also very shy and hesitant about spending so much money on knives like the other reviewer.

However, after my wife complained about how dull the Ginsu knives that I bought for her were, I decided to take the plunge in to the luxury? or professional? (lack of a better term) knives world. Wow... from usability to finish, these knives simply blew the Ginsu knives out of the water.

I tried slicing a watermelon in half with the chef's knife and it just sliced right through without much effort. The Ginsu knife had me struggling to get the knife through. Tomatoes slice with extreme ease. Meats get sliced without much repetition. It makes me feel like Wolfgang Puck and look for things to slice and dice up.

I re-enact scenes from Emeril Live! talking like Emeril, "BAM" and slice away. It just brings me joy every time I use them. Every item in the set seems to be made with amazing care and detail. Each and every knife is blazingly sharp and I don't think my wife nor I can ever go back to using other knives. The handles are very comfortable and I think it will last me a very long time.

Now, if these knives only made me better at cooking. :)

PROS:
+ Very Sharp
+ Pro Quality and Construction
+ German Knife Engineering in da haus!
+ Comes with 11 knives and knife block

CONS:
- Price, but well worth every penny

If your knives are dull and hate the performance of them and are sitting on the fence, the grass is greener and healthier on this side of the lawn. You won't regret it.

I was shy about spending so much on knives. These are totally worth it!

I have never used knives so sharp; ever! The Chef's Knife has become my favorite. It has just enough rocking motion that it makes me feel like a pro (I'm not!). So far, every knife I've tried from this set can take on ripe tomatoes with ease. The Bread Knife tackles bread perfectly. The shears are awesome; they come apart for easy cleaning. I'm new to using a steel, but this addition really completes the set; I steel after every use now.

The only downside was the block had a defect; the top most slot had some wood partially blocking it. I contacted Wusthof's Support and they sent me a replacement for no charge. So -1 star for the defect, but +1 star for great service.

Great knives! Got them to replace a cheap set that I had for 22 years. These knives are high quality, good balance, and super sharp! I hope to have these for the next 22! A little more than I wanted to spend on a set of knives, but well with it.

Knives are excellent - what you would expect for this price. Scissors are cheap and fell apart the first day.
