Wüsthof enhances its assortment of specialty knives in its best-selling Classic collection of precision-forged, full-tang cutlery with the addition of the Classic 9-inch Sushi Knife (4526-7/23). Available at retail nationwide in October 2013, the new Classic 9-inch Sushi Knife is priced at $129.99 suggested retail.
Features: Designed specifically to master the art of slicing raw fish and seafood for sushi and sashimi, the Classic 9-inch Sushi Knife features a razor-sharp long and slender single edge blade to ensure superior control, precision and perfectly clean cuts every time. Additionally, the knife’s specifically angled blade effortlessly pushes off sticky ingredients, such as raw yellowtail and salmon. While primarily crafted to prepare sushi and sashimi with the same level of skill and meticulous attention to presentation as a master sushi chef, the Classic 9-inch Sushi Knife is adept at slicing all boneless fish, boneless meats, and a myriad of vegetables with precision.
Classic: Wüsthof’s best selling collection for generations, Classic full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon, stain-resistant alloy, which is engineered to enhance edge-retention and to facilitate re-sharpening. The steel used for the Classic line features a hardness that is approximately 58 on the Rockwell hardness scale. Completely buffed and polished by hand, the Classic knife blade is seamlessly attached to highly durable black handles with triple rivets for a totally hygienic and secure fit.
Classic knives feature a new handle design made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. Additionally, the shape of the handle is more rounded for a comfortable and sure grip.
Classic handles also include a new Wüsthof patented feature designed to eliminate the possibility of rusting or pitting of the rivets or the knife’s tang, which could occur from contact with impurities, high humidity, or salt water.
All Wüsthof knives are fully guaranteed to be free of defects in craftsmanship.
