Reverse scallops on the edge allow this beautifully-made thin bladed knife to cut aggressively. Perfect for use as a bread knife, deli/sausage knife, or for slicing nearly anything in the kitchen.
This knife features an amazing and well thought out design: The offset handle and deep (wide) blade at the heel (where the blade meets the handle) provides tons of clearance between the knuckles and the cutting board making slicing baguettes or cutting sandwiches an absolute breeze. A VERY cool idea in a very practical new knife! Reverse scallops on the edge allow this knife to cut aggressively. You'll be amazed at how easily it slices. Perfect for use as a small bread knife, deli/sausage knife, or for slicing nearly anything in the kitchen. This is taking the idea of the classic offset-serrated slicer to a new extreme, and I think it works really well. This is an excellent example of this type of offset-serrated knife, featuring the legendary forged Wusthof quality and durability.
Note: the nature of an edge like this is that it does not need to be sharpened. With normal use and care (only cut on wood or plastic boards, NEVER stone or glass), it should last and cut very well for many years.
