This Wusthof Oriental Cook's Knife was styled after the Japanese Cook's Knife, and is perfect for preparing not only fine Asian but also Western cuisine. This sophisticated kitchen knife is part of the Wusthof classic range and has a 17cm hollow edged blade. the hollow edge creates pockets of air which prevent extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade.
Each Wusthof knife is precision forged from a single piece of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium steel. This specialised high carbon stain resistant alloy ensures the critical characteristics of each Wusthof kitchen knife -including: razor sharp, long lasting cutting edge, easily restorable edge, high stain resistance. Each Wusthof knife has a solid, curved bolster for comfort and safety, which stops your hand riding up the blade. Each knife also has a full tang for perfect balance.

The shape of the handle is ergonomic and has been designed in consultation with professional chefs for maximum comfort. Finished to a high standard the handles are seam free and pore free and therefore hygienic. Kitchen knives from Wusthof make wonderful luxury gifts for professional chefs and cooking enthusiasts.
