This is a VERY versatile mid-sized serrated knife! Handy for sausages, bagels, croissants, bread rolls, etc. Sure to quickly become a family favourite!
Not just for sausages! Wüsthof, being a German company, calls this a "sausage knife." Here in North America Wüsthof prefers to call it a "serrated utility knife", since it falls in the larger-than-paring but smaller-than-cook's knife range which is generically called a "utility" size. Me? Living in Montreal (the bagel capital of the world), I like to call it the Ultimate Bagel Knife -- you should see how this baby neatly and easily slices a bagel! I really like this somewhat unusual knife. I think serrated knives generally fell in disfavour here because they came to be associated with the cheap TV junk which was always serrated. The truth is that serrated knives cut really well and are generally a joy to use and tremendously useful and versatile, but if they're not made well to begin with (with a good quality metal that holds its edge like Wüsthof does), then they're essentially worthless when they dull because they're hard to re-sharpen at home. This knife is excellent for slicing rolls, bagels and croissants, and makes short work of hard salami and even the ripest tomato. I love this knife, and it makes a cool gift because it's unusual, useful and fun. Precision forged from a single blank of steel with full tang.
Features the popular new blade style without bolster, for ease of sharpening, full-blade length performance, and lighter weight. The handle is super-comfortable and made of the same excellent material that the Classic line is made of so it's comfortable and offers good grip even when wet, and it's polished so it looks beautiful and natural at the same time. The metal cap and overall shape also lends true elegance to the shape, and it's incredibly comfortable, no matter what kind of grip you prefer to use. German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use.
