Product Description

A useful addition to any cutlery collection, this 5-1/2-inch tomato knife features a serrated edge for smooth, efficient cutting--no excess pressure required. Use it to slice through summer-ripe tomatoes with ease. It also comes with a two-pronged pointed tip that works well for transferring slices from the cutting board to a plate or platter. Overall, the tomato knife measures approximately 10-1/2 by 1 by 1/2 inches.

Like other knives in Wusthof's Gourmet collection, the knife features a special blend of high-carbon German stainless steel throughout the whole length of the knife for exceptional strength and balance. Wusthof 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. Another thoughtful detail includes the handles, which come riveted and ergonomically designed for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof knives carry a limited lifetime warranty and should be hand washed for best results.

Gourmet Cutlery Series

In the culinary world variety and preparing something outstanding is the key to success. Due to this, Wusthof offers more than 350 different kinds of knives to be able to provide the perfect knife for everyone. No matter which kind of blade and handle shape you are thinking of--Wusthof has the right knife for all your needs.

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.

Manufacturing

Modern Manufacturing

With modern manufacturing techniques, Wusthof is using laser cutting to craft its stamped knives. Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut steel in precise shapes. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser, by computer, at the steel being cut. The material then burns away, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.

The remaining processes are similar to the manufacturing of forged knives.

Automated steps ensure precise results.

Manufacturing
Perfectly sharpened blade. View larger.

Stamped knives are usually thinner, lighter and lack a little of the balance of forged knives; therefore, requiring a firmer grip and more pressure when chopping and mincing. They are usually priced lower than forged cutlery, because the process can be performed at incredible speeds and reduced labor and material costs. Today, high-quality stamped knives deliver excellent cutting and ability and light-weight maneuverability favored by some cooks.

Precisely cut with the latest state-of-the-art laser technology
  • A wide assortment offers you knives for all purposes
  • For professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts
  • Manufactured from one piece of steel (Chrom Molybdenum Vanadium)
  • Extraordinary sharpness is easy to maintain
  • Comfortable synthetic full-tang handle for all blades longer than 12 cm
  • Made in Solingen, Germany
  • Limited lifetime warranty

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.

I recently found a replacement on Amazon.com for my 10 yr old overused and often re-sharpened Wusthof Gourmet tomato knife. I was amazed at the low price of $29 when this knife in retail stores has been on sale for $55 or $60. Now I know why. The blade itself is the same as the original blade, but the handle is just a groved piece of plastic or composite with rivets holding the flat blade in place-the same a any other cheap knife found at discount stores. I think I bought a $29 knife for $29- not the great deal I thought it was and it doesn't exactly match the handles of my "Classic" Wusthhof knife set. But I'm certainly not sending it back. It works really well, just like the original one-just a little more cheaply made.

I know it seems excessive to buy an entire knife just for tomatoes ... but it's gotten to the point where I buy tomatoes JUST to be able to use this knife I love it so much. It slices through the fruit's skin as effortlessly as through softened butter, while other knives (even my other razor sharp Wusthof ones) just bruise and squish the fruit. Definitely worth the cost. I just bought a second one as a gift!

Just like all the other Wusthof knives we have, this knife is great. We needed a knife to cut tomatoes and other vegetables into thin slices with out mushing the vegetables and this knife is perfect. it is ultra sharp so you must be very careful using it but it will cut a tomato or soft fruit thinly without damaging the fruit or vegetable. We use it all the time.

Great purchase. We will definitely continue to purchase Wusthof knives.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mike Tarrani HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on July 9, 2013
This knife allows you to thinly slice delicate fruits and vegetables without tearing. I can achieve a near paper thin slice of tomato with it, which makes this worth every penny to me.

This is a high-end home or semi-pro grade knife. It's stamped instead of forged, which cut some of the costs between this and the high end Classic series. For me that is not a problem due to the nature of the knife. Had I been in the market for a chef's knife I would have spent the extra money and purchased a forged knife. I will say that this one holds a razor sharp edge as well as some forged knives that I own.

It is also missing the bolster that forged knives have, so it does not have the balance of a high-end knife, but for what it was designed to do that is not necessary. It's light, easy to use and the handle provides a nice, no slip gripping surface.

I love the way this knife holds its edge. Some of that is due to the serrated blade, but it's also because the quality of the steel used for the blade is the same quality that the forged models use. In fact I need to insert a caution: you need to be careful when using and cleaning this knife because the blade is extremely sharp. Make sure you store this in a block or roll too because this is not a knife you want loose in a drawer - it can inflict a nasty cut if you accidentally grab it by the wrong end while rummaging through a drawer.

One final note: this, like all serrated blade knives, is designed to be used in a pulling motion in order to obtain the thin slices as well as safety when you are holding a tomato while cutting. The reason I mention this is because I've had guests who have assisted me in cooking use this knife with a pushing motion and it does not perform nearly as well.

This little knife is very sharp. You can actually peel the tomato with it. I really like the fork on the end--great for getting out the stem.

Have several Wusthof knives and have been very satisfied with each one. Recently lost my tomato knife just before tomato season. Ordered this replacement understanding the blade was top quality, but the handle is not the top of the line. Very happy with the knife. Slices great, keeps a sharp edge...just like my older more expensive one did. Handle is fine. It is not a problem for me that the handle is not an exact match for my other knives. Close enough and saved some money! Price when I purchased in June 2012 was $24.67. This is a knife that the longer you have it, the happier you will be with it.
