8-Inch hollow ground carving knife cuts meat with ease. The ultra thin hollow ground blade allow for very thin slicing without sticking to the blade.
Matching an elegant aesthetic with superior craftsmanship, each full-tang Wüsthof Culinar knife performs like a professional and looks like work of art. As with the companys other top-of-the-line models, the Culinar knife is precision-forged--blade, bolster, and tang--from a single piece of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. The blade is tested by lasers and honed by hand, with computer-controlled front-to-back tapering, grinding, and polishing. The beautiful satin-finish 18/10 stainless-steel handles, attached with a near-seamless construction, offer a pleasing grip and a slightly heavier weight than synthetic alternatives. In use, the Culinar knives are excellently balanced, handling with incredible sharpness and precision. They promise a lifetime of dependable use.
Designed specifically for carving, this 8-inch Culinar carver uses a hollow-ground blade to turn out deliciously thin slices. Shallow, oval-shaped depressions run the length of the blade on either side, creating air pockets during slicing that keep the meat from sticking to the knife. Because it is not serrated, the knife can also be honed on a steel with the rest of your cutlery collection. Satisfying to hold and highly maneuverable, this knife should be washed and dried by hand for optimum results. --Emily Bedard
