Meet all your kitchen cutting needs with this Classic heavy cook's knife from Wusthof. Precision-forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, the blade is 20% sharper with twice the edge retention thanks to Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). The black polyoxymethylene (POM) handle is triple riveted for precise control. Tempered to 58 degrees Rockwell, this knife also features a full tang, full bolster, and finger guard. Due to the heavier weight and balance of this knife, it is perfect for heavy duty work such as cutting thicker vegetables and fruits such as watermelon.
