Ideal companion to a Chef's knife. A very useful all-around utility/slicer knife for meat, fruit, and vegetables. This size and type of knife sits comfortably between a larger chef's knife and full-size slicer. Wusthof calls it a "sandwich" knife, but most people would simply consider it an all-purpose larger "utility" knife. Pretty handy-dandy when you just want a good knife for a quick job without the bulk of a chef's knife. 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 (pro-style "pinch grip" or standard grip on the handle). German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use.
