Wüsthof Kitchen Surfer edition 5, chai dao 14cm 4177-7/14D
The Wüsthof Kitchen Surfer 5 is a razor-sharp Chai Doa knife. The Chai Dao is a traditional Chinese knife shape. Thanks to the slightly curved blade the Chai Dao is perfect for cutting, rocking and chopping.
Wüsthof Chao Dao blade: razor-sharp stainless steel
The blade made from chromium-vanadium steel (X50CrMoV15) is forged from one solid piece of steel. It is sharpened according to Wüsthof’s PEtec technology. This means that for each blade a sharpening angle is determined with the help of a computer. Afterwards it is precisely sharpened on a wet sharpening stone. After thorough inspection each knife leaves the production line, ready for a life of intensive use.
Wüsthof processes the steel in a specific way to make sure it has a high hardness of 58 Rockwell. As such the knife retains its sharpness for a really long time. However, if you notice that the knife is not as sharp as it used to be, all you have to do is move it over a honing steel. The result is a razor-sharp knife that is amazing to use.
Wüsthof Chao Dao handle: sustainable and hygienic
This knife is a combination of a forged blade and an ergonomic handle made from black POM, a very sustainable type of plastic. The handle can withstand all substances you find in the kitchen. The handle was traditionally and seamlessly riveted to the blade with three rivets. As such dirt can never accumulate in between the blade and the handle. The crop protects your fingers from unnecessary contact with the edge. What more could you possibly ask for?
Please note: this knife cannot be used to cut through bones. If you want to cut bones we recommend using a classic cleaver.
