Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 6, 2009
A never before seen kitchen knife blade shape has been engineered and produced by world-renowned cutlery manufacturer Wüsthof. Deemed the Wünder Knife, this design improves upon the popular Santoku. The blade is slightly longer and has a more curved edge line that is familiar to the chef's knife, however still offers the thin, sharp and light feel of the Santoku knife. Fully forged and with a hollow edge, the Wüsthof Classic Wünder Knife is currently exclusive to online kitchenware retailer CutleryAndMore.com.
Wüsthof incorporates the necessary shape and blade characteristics to successfully combine the functionality of a traditional chef's and carving knife. The recently popularized Santoku knife shape is updated so that it can more comfortably mince, chop, dice, slice and carve. This new blade shape is deemed the Wünder knife. The name Wünder (pronounced VOO n-der in German) translates to the word "miracle".
Leave it to German engineering to come up with a truly versatile and functional design. Currently this blade shape is available in the Wüsthof Classic series of precision forged kitchen cutlery. This series features a durable triple riveted handle and fully forged blade from a single piece of steel. With a full tang and the Wüsthof edge, this knife is guaranteed to last a lifetime.
The key characteristics of the new Wüsthof Wünder knife is that it is light enough to easily maneuver during chopping, and the blade is thin enough to allow ultra thin slicing and carving. This allows the hollow edge to be easily re-sharpened and to attain the maximum sharpness allowed by the quality high carbon stainless steel that is used in all Wüsthof kitchen knives.
For now you can only find the Wüsthof Classic Wünder Knife at online kitchenware retailer CutleryAndMore.com, a leading kitchen cutlery authority. However, recent sales indicate that this blade shape will be very popular and ultimately will be available at all Wüsthof authorized outlets.
The MSRP of the Wünder knife is $99.95. For more information, visit the following website: http://www.cutleryandmore.com
