With 10 main knife series available, Wusthof knives are sturdy, easy to maintain, and stain-resistant due to their special steel-alloy composition. This alloy contains stainless steel, carbon, chromium, and a small percentage of other elements. The ergonomic handles of Wusthof knives are designed to fit comfortably in the hand; they're made from sleek African blackwood, stainless steel, or blended synthetic materials. Wusthof knives are designed for professional chefs and home cooks alike. The knives' precision-edge technology makes it possible to chop, cut, slice, mince, and dice foods in uniform pieces. The computer-aided process involved in making precision-edge utensils produces razor-sharp knives due to the angle at which the blade is sharpened. Precision-edge knives retain their sharpness for years and maintain a high cutting performance. Wusthof also produces tools such as shears, sharpeners, spatulas, cutting boards, bar tools, and manicure sets. Each of Wusthof's cutting tools is made of the same high-quality stainless steel as its knives.
