Instead of reaching for an all-purpose knife, select one from this collection with a blade that's the perfect size and shape for the task at hand. Crafted in Germany, Wusthof Classic knives feature durable full-tang construction and hand-honed high-carbon-steel blades. Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) gives each straight-edged knife an extraordinarily sharp blade that retains its edge 30% longer. Full tangs are triple riveted to the handles for exceptional durability and control. Durable polymer handles are contoured for a comfortable grip. Handsome hardwood block safely stores 13 items and is gentle on knives' edges.
