The carving knife is used for carving hot or cold meats, turkeys, hams, and roasts.Use the paring knife for paring, peeling, trimming, and dicing fruits and vegetables. The honing steel is essential for keeping your knives in top condition. The kitchen shears are an indispensable tool for snipping herbs, opening packages, and cutting twine.
Wüsthof knives offer a harmonious blend of precision cutting performance, integrity of materials, safety, and comfort. The knives are 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 blades are perfectly tapered from bolster to tip, and from the back of the blades to the edges, and are 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.
Caution: The chef's knife has been purposely ground extra thin for the ultimate cutting performance. Chopping through bones will damage the fine edge.
