Wusthof Classic Knife Blades
The Wusthof Classic Knife blade with the straight edge 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.
The Wusthof Classic Knife blade with the serrated edge The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.
The Wusthof Classic Knife blade with the hollow edge 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.
I have quite a few Wüsthof Classic series knives and I love them all especially this Nakiri. Holds an edge for a little mg time as long as you gone the blade every other use or so.
Our original Wusthof Classic knives were a wedding gift from 25+ years ago. Recently one of the handles started to feel a little loose. Wusthof replaced it immediately.
That experience has lead us to expand our Wusthof Classic knife collection. This is a great cutting knife, especially for vegetables. The straight blade has a bit different feel from other knifes, but it does not take away from the ease of cutting with this blade.
