Wusthof Classic 2 Piece Mini Asian Knife Set

If you are looking for a versatile set of knives without jumping into the larger sizes, consider the Wusthof Classic 2 Piece Mini Asian Set. Comprised of a 5 Inch Classic Santoku and a 3 inch Classic Flat Cut Paring Knife, these blades offer some serious utility in your kitchen. The Santoku knife is basically a cross between a vegetable cleaver and a chef's knife. Many prefer this design over traditional European cook's knives because they are lighter and are better at the chopping motions. Wusthof santoku knives have hollow ground edges to help your thin slices of food fall off the the blade without sticking. You probably already have a paring knife, but the Flat Cut parer, also known as a sheep's foot, is again much better at chopping as well as precision than your standard paring knife with a pointed tip. Straight, super-thin cuts are now possible thanks to the nearly entire length of the blade making contact with the cutting board at once. Made in Solingen, Germany. Lifetime Wusthof Guarantee. Wusthof item number 8942.

Wusthof 8942 Classic 2 Piece Mini Asian Set Includes:

  • 3-in Flat Cut Paring Knife

  • 5-in Santoku Knife

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%)
