Wusthof's best-selling collection for generations, Classic full tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. Classic knives feature a handle made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tight molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration.
The Classic 3 Piece Asian Chef's Set includes a 2.75" Trimming, 6" Curved Boning and 8" Artisan Butcher knife. Classic series knives feature Wusthof's patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Wusthof's state-of-the-art technology PEtec incorporates a computer controlled method for putting the edge on forged knives. With this patented technology, the knives are made 20% sharper to 14 degrees per side (10 degrees per side on Asian-style blades). This refinement doubles the sharpness retention because exacting angles and edges last longer than edges sharpened by hand. Made in Solingen, Germany.
