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. Designed specifically to slice, chop and trim fresh produce, this vegetable knife features a perforated blade that reduces sticking when you're cutting potatoes and other firm vegetables. Holes in blade reduce friction when cutting, and a lengthwise ridge helps push cut ingredients off the blade. Stamped blade is made of high-carbon stainless steel for top performance and durability. Triple-riveted high-impact plastic handle provides a secure, comfortable grip.
