Wusthof Classic 9" Double Serrated Bread Knife - Black
This Wüsthof Classic bread knife, 9" / 23 cm is enhanced with a very remarkable double-serrated blade. This means that it retains its sharpness longer, doesn't need as much pressure and leaves you with very accurate, smooth cuts. Loaves of bread with a hard crust are not crushed when sliced, and even bread with soft crusts are nicely cut, without tearing the delicate surface.
Wüsthof Classic blade: razor-sharp stainless steel
The blade made from chromium-vanadium steel (X50CrMoV15) is forged from one solid piece of steel. It is sharpened according to Wüsthof’s PEtec technology. This means that for each blade a sharpening angle is determined with the help of a computer and is then precisely sharpened on a wet sharpening stone.
Wüsthof processes the steel in a specific way to make sure it has a high hardness of 58 Rockwell. As such the knife retains its sharpness for a really long time. However, if you notice that the knife is not as sharp as it used to be, all you have to do is move it over a honing steel.
Wüsthof Classic handle: sustainable and hygienic
This knife is a combination of a forged blade and an ergonomic handle made from black POM, a very sustainable type of plastic. The handle can withstand all substances you find in the kitchen. The handle was traditionally and seamlessly riveted to the blade with three rivets. As such dirt can never accumulate in between the blade and the handle. The crop protects your fingers from unnecessary contact with the edge.
