Wusthof Silverpoint II - 7" Hollow Edge Santoku Knife - 4184
The 7-inch hollow-ground santoku is ideal for chopping and mincing, crushing garlic, and scooping chopped items from cutting board to waiting pots and pans. It’s also handy for slicing, since the dimples on the side of the blade cause air pockets to form, allowing food to release easier from the blade. The knife was expertly crafted from high-carbon, no-stain steel in Solingen, Germany, the cutlery capital of the world. For higher precision and edge integrity, the blade was laser cut instead of stamped. Each Wusthof blade is precisely tempered to hold its edge for a great length of time, so external maintenance is rarely required. The knife’s unique compound angle tapers from the spine to the edge, allowing for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge. It also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength and flexibility. The knife features a riveted handle with a contoured shape for comfort and control. Washing by hand is recommended for best care.
