The Wusthof 5 in. Santoku 1040131314 is designed with a thinner blade than the traditional chef’s knife, at a 10-degree cutting edge, and gradually curves up at the very end, providing a straighter edge. The hollow edge is crafted with evenly spaced vertical indentations, creating small air pockets between the blade and the food. These small air pockets gently push food off the blade and reduce friction and drag.
This knife allows cooks to effortlessly prep a wide array of fresh produce, including starchy vegetables like potatoes, which tend to stick to a knife’s blade. Wusthof Classic Series offers style and class with its uniformed blades and handles.
This Wusthof 5 in. Santoku 1040131314 has an X50CrMoV15 steel blade with a black POM handle. The curvature of the handle is for comfort and stability. The finger guard protects your hand and allows for precison cuts.
