Made in Germany, this set is perfect for carving the holiday bird or any meat or poultry. The knife's high-carbon-steel blade slices cleanly without tearing. The sturdy carving fork holds meat securely in place. Set includes an 8" hollow-ground carving knife and a 12 1/2" straight carving fork for slicing turkey, chicken, roasts and more. Each piece is precision forged from sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Knife blade has hollow-ground depressions to reduce surface friction for even slicing. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Tines of fork hold meat steady while you're carving and slicing. Full tangs are triple riveted to the handles for exceptional durability and control. Polypropylene handles are contoured for a comfortable grip.
