After two years of rigorous engineering and designing, Wusthof has once again created a new line of cutlery that is truly cutting-edge. Each Wusthof Epicure knife features a new, modern design that will complement any kitchen. The name comes from the Epicurean handles, which are made from the same material that is used to make high-end cutting boards. The newly designed, ergonomic handles feature 2 high-quality, stainless steel rivets and are made in the United States. The redesigned blade now has a wider, more curved shape to provide better stability, comfort, and ease of use. Each blade is treated with a virtually invisible protective ceramic coating, which protects the blade from wear and tear from regular use, ensuring that your blade will maintain its strength and luster. The ceramic coating also helps keep food from sticking to the blade for more efficient and effortless chopping and cutting. Made in Solingen, Germany; Lifetime Guarantee.
Wusthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand molding 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.
Each Wusthof knife is precision forged from a single piece of chrom-molybdenum-vanadium steel. This specialized high carbon, stain-resistant alloy ensures that the critical characteristics of each Wusthof knife are right there from the beginning: razor sharp, long-lasting cutting edge that is both highly stain resistance and easily restorable (able to be sharpened). This formula is imprinted on each forged blade is the following world-renowned Wusthof steel formula: X50 CrMoV15 X = Stainless Steel Mo = Molybdenum 50 = 0.5% carbon - significant for sharpness V = Vanadium for hardness and edge retention Cr = Chromium for stain-resistance 15 = Contents of chromium (15%)
