The new Wusthof 2-Stage Knife Sharpener is not only easier to hold than older models, but it also is designed to sharpen the most advanced Wusthof knives with the new PEtec edge. The Wusthof sharpener contains both a carbide notch intended for extremely dull edges and a ceramic notch for honing and finishing reasonably sharp blades. To sharpen knives, place and hold the sharpener on a flat surface, insert your blade fully into the slot at a 90-degree angle then place moderate pressure on the blade as you pull it towards you. Serrated and scalloped edges can also be sharpened or honed using the ceramic fine stage. Safe and simple to use, this sharpener will keep your knives performing at their peak. Wusthof item number 3059730101, previously 2922-7.
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 chrome-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 resistant 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%)
