This all-purpose cook's knife is engineered to be the work horse of the kitchen, as good for chopping and slicing as it is for mincing and dicing. Like all knives in the Wusthof Classic series, this full-tang knife is precision-forged from a single blank of high carbon stainless steel. The polyoxymethylene handle is designed with comfort and durability in mind. The weight and length allows it to handle thicker meats and vegetables with ease. Whether you're an experienced chef or you're just starting out, this Wusthof knife will make food preparation a breeze.
