Product Description

Sizzling steak hot off the grill is even more enjoyable when effortlessly sliced with the proper cutting tool. This knife set by Wusthof features four steak knives, each providing a sharp blade with a pointed tip that makes it easy to cut thin even slices without tearing or undue pressure, which can cause juice to escape from the meat. A great wedding- or housewarming-gift idea, the steak knives measure approximately 9 by 1 by 1/2 inches each. Like other knives in Wusthof's Gourmet collection, the steak knives feature a special blend of high-carbon German stainless steel throughout the whole length of each knife for exceptional strength and balance. Wusthof knives also provide sharp, precisely tempered blades for safe, efficient use. Laser tested for accuracy, the unique, compound angle of the blade tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to create a sturdy, yet extremely sharp cutting surface. Another thoughtful detail includes the textured handles, which come riveted and ergonomically designed for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof knives carry a limited lifetime warranty and should be hand washed for best results.

How Wusthof Knives are Made Wusthof knives are known for their outstanding sharpness. By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so). The evolution of a precision forged knife Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel. Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps. 1. Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel 2. Precision forged piece 3. Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell 4. Polished 5. Scales of handles and rivets 6. The Wusthof Cook's knife Types of Blades The Right Blade for Every Purpose The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended. The Differences: Straight-edge blade: The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit. Serrated-edge blade: The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread. Hollow-edge blade: When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices. Cleaning & Storage Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel. For proper storage we recommend the following options: Knife blocks in a variety of shapes, colors and configurations. The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor. Magnet Bars in wood, synthetic material or aluminum. Two extra strong magnet segments provide a safe, easily visible and space-saving storage option. Cook's cases in rolls and briefcase styles. This is the ideal method for professionals to store and transport their tools safely. About Wusthof Since 1814 Wusthof has set the standard for designing and manufacturing precision-forged knives.
