Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Long, sturdy blade has a serrated edge for slicing through bread without tearing or squashing. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control. A recessed bolster facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the cutting edge; a heel bolster provides added balance. Sleek contoured handle is made of smooth polypropylene.
