In its seventh-generation of family ownership, Wusthof has been making some of the finest kitchen cutlery in the world since 1814. The Gourmet line features precision stainless-steel blades that resist stains and rust and hold an exceedingly sharp edge. This boning knife curves upward at the tip, a blade shape that facilitates cutting around the bones of meat and poultry. Narrow, curved blade efficiently removes meat from the bone. Sharp, tapered point ideal for trimming fat and cutting tendons. Forged blade is made of high-carbon stainless steel for top performance and durability. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Triple-riveted high-impact plastic handle provides a secure, comfortable grip.
