Product Description

One of the most popular types, this 3-inch paring knife by Wusthof comes in handy for a variety of smaller, more detailed cutting tasks. Use it for anything from peeling vegetables to mincing fresh herbs. The knife's sharp fine-edge blade makes thin slices a breeze, while its hollow ground edge reduces friction when cutting and helps prevent food from sticking to the blade.

Like all knives in Wusthof's Classic series, the knife's blade, tang, and bolster come precision forged from a single piece of precisely tempered, high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time. Even more, it comes with a unique compound angle not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility. Traditional in look, Classic knives are seamlessly constructed with a visible full tang triple-riveted into an ergonomically-shaped synthetic handle. Though the knife is dishwasher-safe, Wusthof recommends hand-washing all fine cutlery. Made in Germany, the knife measures 7-2/7 by 8/9 by 3/5 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

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.

This is a great paring knife, peels garlic beautifully. Fits my hand well with nice balance and a comfortable handle. The blade cuts through everything as if it were butter.

I now use this little guy as my paring knife most of the time, it's very handy since I do more small chopping than peeling. Get the big one too, it's great also.

This is my favorite knife. It's comfortable to hold and is the perfect size and blade to cut apples, strawberries, anything you'd use a small knife for. I use it so often that I bought another one from Amazon's warehouse deals and it arrived quickly in like new condition. What a great bargain!

I have never really paid attention to kitchen knives. Someone suggested that I buy something better than the usual old knives in my kitchen, and I was really surprised at how much better was this little knife. Definitely worth the price.

Wusthof Classic is my knife of choice. I chose Wusthof Classic because of it's quality, sharpness tendency to to hold its sharp edge, comfort in use and price point. The santoku style also makes handling a breeze. This is a great little knife any chef would be happy to own.

This is a great knife - sharp and well-balanced. I used to use either one of my chef's knife (Mac & Wusthoff) or the Wusthoff Santoko, but, frankly, they were too large to use comfortably to slice garlic and other small items. I have a ton of professional knives - Wusthoff, Henckels, Global, and Mac, and I reluctantly decided to add this one to the collection. It is now one of my favorites. THE favorite for smaller jobs.
