The CLASSIC 6 Hollow Edge Cook's Knife from Wusthof® is perfectly balanced. It's an extension of your hand. Forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon stainless steel for exceptional strength. The blade is made of a special steel alloy that's exceptionally sharp and has a long-lasting, easily restorable edge. The hollow edge creates pockets of air which prevent extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade. The bolster provides heft and balance as well as a finger guard for safety and comfort. Full tang construction from the bolster through the back of the handle for a solid feel and confident control. Riveted synthetic handle is smooth and seamless for a comfortable grip. Attention to details include a ground and polished spine with an etching of the steel formula and trident logo. Carefully hand wash and towel dry. Blade length: 6.0 Blade width: 1.5 Handle length: 5.0 Weight: 5.82 oz. Made in Germany.
