The long blade on this confectioner's knife is designed to slice cleanly through cakes and pastries. The knife blade features a gently scalloped edge, rather than the standard pointed serrations — this ensures the blade slices through delicate cakes without tearing or dragging. The knife also boasts a rounded tip, which means the knife can also double as a palette knife. The half bolster design and thinner edge of the blade reduce the weight of the knife to ensure reduced hand fatigue and more precise work. The shape of the bolster makes it possible to use and sharpen the entire blade. Use this knife to effortlessly cut through cakes, tarts, bread, and more.
Wüsthof knives offer a harmonious blend of precision cutting performance, integrity of materials, safety, and comfort. The knife is hot-drop forged by hand from a single blank of high carbon no-stain steel, a specially alloyed surgical steel consisting of exacting proportions of carbon, chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium. The blade is perfectly tapered from bolster to tip, and from the back of the blade to the edge, and is honed by hand. Perfect balance is assured by the full extension of the tang through the length of the handle. A seamless, totally hygienic fit is achieved by the durable Hostaform-C handle, triple-riveted to the fully visible tang; the handle is buffed and polished by hand.
The half bolster knives are 30% lighter than the traditional full bolster knives for ease of use and a comfortable grip.
