The handles are ergonomic, slip-resistant, and made from polyoxymethylene to offer balance and style.
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 handcrafted 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: the 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%)
