What a cook's knife is for European kitchens, the Santoku is for Japan and the whole of Asia: so versatile in shape, weight and edge that it can be used for mincing and chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit as well as for preparing fish and meat. The sharp blade of a Santoku allows anything from regular to wafer-thin cuts - it is therefore now indispensable in kitchens all around the world.
Wüsthof Classic White blade: laser-sharp stainless steel
The forged blade from chromium-vanadium steel(X50CrMoV15) is forged from one piece of steel. The knife is sharpened according to Wüsthof's PEtec technology. This means that for each blade the sharpening angle is determined with the help of a computer. Afterwards the blade is sharpened with laser precision on a wet sharpening stone. After thorough inspection each knife will leave the production line, for a long life of intensive use.
The steel is modified as such that it will have a high hardness of 58 Rockwell. As such the knife retains its sharpness for a really long time. Don't worry if your knife loses some of its sharpness, simply move it over a honing steel a couple of times. The result is a razor-sharp knife that is amazing to work with.
Wüsthof Classic White handle: sustainable and hygienic.
This knife is a combination of a forged blade and a handle made from white POM, an extremely sustainable plastic. This handle can handle any substance found in the kitchen. The handle is traditionally, and of course seamlessly, riveted to the blade with three rivets. As such no dirt can accumulate in between the blade and the handle. The crop will protect your fingers from unwanted contact with the edge. What more could a real cooking enthusiast ask for?
