Wusthof’s Grand Prix II line focuses on ergonomics in handle design. The heavy bolsters provide a unique balance for a comfortable grip with each knife. Additionally, these knives have textured synthetic handles that are a delight to hold. Wusthof uses a special technology (PEtec) to measure each individual blade produced and calculate its optimal angle before sharpening the blade. Using PEtec protects the blade’s sharpness for longer, too.
