This is Wusthof's top-of-the-line series. Featuring forged blades, a modern ergonomic look, and a long-lasting, comfortable and nearly indistructible handle/grip. Seamless, hygienic fit between handle, bolster and full tang. Full-tang construction (blade metal extends fully into the handle for extra strength); dramatic, sculpted handles of 18/10 stainless steel with an elegant satin finish. The distinctive, stainless TRIDENT logo adorns the handle. Beautiful and very sharp knives -- truly professional-level tools! Fully forged, made in Germany.
