A perfectly balanced chef's knife is an essential tool in the kitchen. This 8" steel knife from Wusthof features a precision blade forged from a single blank of steel with a bolster and full tang. The ergonomic handle was designed with consultation from professional chefs to ensure a comfortable grip while the synthetic handle is seamlessly fitted to ensure the best hygiene. The hollow edge creates pockets of air to prevent extra-thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and craftsmanship.
