Wusthof’s Crafter knife series is a high-quality product built with carefully selected raw materials from smoked oak, brass, and stainless steel. It is forged from one piece of stainless steel with the final buffing done by hand. This handle is unique in that it has traditional brass rivets and the handle is made from smoked oak. Wusthof’s trident logo is branded into the handle.
The Crafter 7″ Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is designed with a thinner blade than the traditional chef’s knife, at a 10 cutting edge, and gradually curves up at the very end providing a straighter edge. The hollow edge is crafted with evenly spaced vertical indentations, which create small air pockets between the blade and the food. These small air pockets gently push food off the blade and reduce friction and drag. This knife allows cooks to effortlessly prep a wide array of fresh produce, including starchy vegetables like potatoes, which tend to stick to a knife’s blade.
