No matter which kind of blade and handle shape you are thinking of--Wusthof has the right knife for all your needs.
The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended.
Straight-edge blade: The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.
Serrated-edge blade: The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.
Hollow-edge blade: When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.
With modern manufacturing techniques, Wusthof is using laser cutting to craft its stamped knives. Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut steel in precise shapes. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser, by computer, at the steel being cut. The material then burns away, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.
The remaining processes are similar to the manufacturing of forged knives.
Stamped knives are usually thinner, lighter and lack a little of the balance of forged knives; therefore, requiring a firmer grip and more pressure when chopping and mincing. They are usually priced lower than forged cutlery, because the process can be performed at incredible speeds and reduced labor and material costs. Today, high-quality stamped knives deliver excellent cutting and ability and light-weight maneuverability favored by some cooks.
If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
