The new Wusthof Universal Knife Sharpener features 4 stages of precision tooling to maintain the edge of both your traditional and Asian knives. Designed to sharpen the even the most advanced Wusthof knives with the new PEtec edge, the Wusthof 4 Stage Universal Sharpener features 2 slots each for European and Asian/Santoku knifes. The coarse carbide stage resets and sharpens a dull edge. The fine ceramic stage polishes the edge to be razor sharp. Simply insert your blade fully into the slot at a 90 degree angle then place light to moderate pressure on the blade as you pull it towards you. Serrated and scalloped (and reverse scalloped) edges can also be sharpened or honed using the ceramic fine stages. The soft grip handle allows you to comfortably hold the Wusthof Universal Sharpener on any flat surface. Wusthof item number 2944.
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%)
