Wüsthof Shines Spotlight On Cutlery For Summer

Wüsthof is shining a spotlight on several of its latest knives and sharpeners in time for Father’s Day and the summer grilling season.

The company’s Classic Hollow Edge Craftsman 7-inch knife is a hybrid design combining the features of a chef’s knife, boning knife and carving knife, and is inspired by farm-to-table cooking. The wide belly helps for rocking cuts, and its clip-point tip facilitates easy maneuvering around joints for de-boning and filleting, while its hollow-edge design allows for smooth, precise carving and slicing. It has a suggested retail price of $162.

The Classic Ikon Four Piece Steak Knife Set includes four 4.5-inch steak knives that are made with special alloyed steel, so each blade holds an extra-sharp edge. This feature, said the company, makes the knives best used for cutting into savory steaks. The set has a suggested retail price of $319.99.

Wüsthof also recently introduced its Easy Edge Electric Sharpener, a new belt-driven electric sharpener. The premium belt-driven sharpener is made for home use and designed for knives forged using the company’s Precision Edge Technology. It features three speeds and an internal vacuum system for collection of metallic debris. It has a suggested retail price of $212.
