These knives are sharp straight out of the manufacturer's packaging, and are easy to maintain, thanks to PEtec - Wusthof’s Precision Edge Technology. Each knife features a traditional triple riveted design with a germ-resistant black handle constructed of Polypropylene. These stainless steel knives are great for both professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts. Made in Soligen, Germany, Wusthof Classic knives are backed by a lifetime warranty.
