Why Choose a Forged Steel Knife?

Wusthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand moulding to enhance the flexibility, density, and hardness of the blade. Forged knives are hand crafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve the balance and ergonomics.

X = Stainless Steel
Mo = Molybdenum
50 = 0.5% carbon - significant for sharpness
V = Vanadium for hardness and edge retention
Cr = Cromium for stain-resistance
15 = Contents of chromium (15%)
