Perform all of your small cutting tasks with this Wustof Classic paring knife. Made in Solingen, Germany, it was hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel. The flat cut blade is hardened to maintain a sharp edge, and it provides perfect balance with a riveted, high-impact composition handle. Wusthof's newest state of the art Precision Edge Technology, or PEtec, incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives and allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees, doubling the sharpness retention. This knife is perfect for everything from peeling fruit to chopping herbs. Best of all, this knife is backed by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.
