The Wusthof 4 1/2" Utility Knife is smaller than a cook’s knife but larger than a paring knife, making it the perfect tool for a multitude of tasks. A utility knife is much like a versatile paring knife and is perfect for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cutting vegetables or cutting small meats.
Forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, Epicure offers the standard Wusthof Rockwell hardness of 58º, the ideal hardness for lasting edge retention, integral blade strength, and ease of maintenance. Every Epicure knife undergoes a PEtec sharpening process developed by Wusthof to achieve an edge that is 20% sharper at a 15º angle, with double the edge retention for a blade that will last a lifetime.
Using the most unique materials in the industry, the Epicure handle is crafted from a durable wood composite and resin. The ergonomic shape is contoured to adapt to the natural contraction of the hand; it’s wider in the front third, then tapered towards the back. For everyone who lives to cook, Wusthof’s new line of Epicure knives will inspire creativity while enhancing performance.
