View larger.</div> </div> <h4>Modern Manufacturing</h4> <p>With modern manufacturing techniques, Wusthof is using laser cutting to craft its stamped knives. Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut steel in precise shapes. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser, by computer, at the steel being cut. The material then burns away, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.</p> <p>The remaining processes are similar to the manufacturing of forged knives.</p> <div class="leftImage" style="width:270px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000DJYES-m2_t.jpg" width="250" height="166" alt="Manufacturing" /> <div class="imageCaption">Automated steps ensure precise results. <br>View larger.</div> </div> <div class="leftImage" style="width:270px"> <img src="http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/kitchen/detailpages/B0000DJYES-m3_t.jpg" width="250" height="199" alt="Manufacturing" /> <div class="imageCaption">Perfectly sharpened blade.

The Gourmet 2-1/2-inch parer is a used for many peeling and slicing tasks of fruits and vegetable. This is one of those knives tha...t is used all the time and has more flexibility than forged knives this size. Typical stamped knives are punched out like a cookie cutter. Wusthof Gourmet knives are laser cut. This intricate manufacturing process is superior to other -inch cookie cutter-inch methods as it is more precise and leaves the knives with less distortion. The Gourmet knives use the same steel that is used in our other more expensive knives. Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet can be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance.

To this day, the company remains family owned. Each step is performed to exacting standards by skilled German workers aided by the most modern, computer guided equipment.

<p>Tough polypropylene handles with full, visible tangs and the traditional three rivets distinguish Classic knives from Wusthof's... other cutlery lines. Otherwise Classic knives are identical to other Wusthof knives, embodying all the virtues that have earned the German manufacturer world renown. The principal parts of a Wusthof knife--blade, bolster, and tang--are forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, and the blade is precisely tapered from bolster to tip and from back to hand-honed edge. The blades and beautifully formed bolsters are not as thick as on some knives. As a result, despite their heft, strength, and durability, Wusthof knives are pleasingly delicate and marvelously balanced in action.</p> <p>This 7-inch santoku is a Japanese cook's (or chef's) knife, featuring a low-tip style with a broad blade. The cutting edge is minimally curved, so it provides less rocking action than a European-style cook's knife. For straight-down slicing and precise chopping, however, it's superb. Alternating hollows on each side of the blade create air pockets, allowing slices to fall away cleanly. This knife should be hand washed.</p> <div class="aplus"> <h3 class="productDescriptionSource">From the Manufacturer</h3> <div class="three-fourth-col"> <p>In the culinary world variety and preparing something outstanding is the key to success.

<p>The small size and sharp point of this paring knife make it ideal for handheld and other small or intricate cutting chores, suc...h as vegetable peeling or mincing small amounts of parsley. An obligatory kitchen addition, this knife carries its weight mostly in its extremely comfortable handle, which allows you greater control.</p> <p>Part of the Classic series, this knife represents two centuries of unexcelled Wusthof craftsmanship. Like other cutlery in the series, it's hand-forged from a single piece of stainless steel for maximum strength; the hand-polished blade is exactingly calibrated to be hard enough to resist dulling yet soft enough to take a keen edge when it's honed or sharpened. Dishwasher-safe and with a traditionally shaped, ergonomically designed handle that is triple-riveted for durability, this knife brings a guaranteed lifetime of low-maintenance cutting to any cook who owns it.</p> <div class="aplus"> <h3 class="productDescriptionSource">From the Manufacturer</h3> <div class="three-fourth-col"> <p>In the culinary world variety and preparing something outstanding is the key to success.
