This unique knife features a high carbon stainless steel blade for long lasting durability. The blade is forged from a single piece of tempered high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength. The blade of the knife features Wusthof etching and the trident symbol, the steel formula and the city of origin. It has a unique compound angle which tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to create a sturdy, yet extremely sharp cutting surface. The blade also features Wusthof's signature Precision Edge Technology which provides extraordinary sharpness and ensures that blades retain their edge 30 percent longer. This knife is resistant to odor absorption and staining and has a triple riveted African Blackwood handle, one of the hardest types of wood, which expands and contracts less than most traditional woods. It also has a full tang and an ergonomic fit for a secure grip. It features a rear bolster that acts as a counter balance during use for added control, as well as a forward bolster that makes it possible to sharpen the complete length of the blade.
