The Wüsthof gourmet 2-piece Asian knife set is from the Gourmet cutlery line from Wüsthof which offers excellent workmanship without the expense. Each knife from the Gourmet range is precisely cut with the latest state of the art laser technology and you will find a wide assortment of knives in this range for all purposes in the kitchen.
This Asian knife set from Wüsthof includes a 7-1/2-inch Santoku knife and a 3-inch straight Parer. Both of the knives have been manufactured from high-carbon stain-resistant steel with laser stamped blades. Wüsthof laser cuts and then laser tests each knife blade to ensure perfect uniformity as well as a super sharp knife edge.
The Gourmet Japanese cook’s knife, which is commonly known as a Santoku knife, features a straight-edge blade which is ideal for straight-down slicing and precision chopping. The blade also features rows of alternating hollows or dimples which create tiny air pockets helping the knife slide through food whilst prepping and ensures that the food will not stick to the blade and the he slices just fall away.
The 3-inch Parer that is included in the knife set comes in handy for cleaning food items like prawns, trimming ginger, or creating integrate garnishes. Like other Wüsthof knives, this set is safe in the dishwasher, but to prolong the life of your knives it’s best to wash your kitchen knives by hand.
These Asian knives are reinforced with triple rivets on all blades for years of reliable use and easy sharpening. The durable Gourmet synthetic knife handles feature a seamless, hygienic fit and full-tang construction helping to give the knife maximum strength and durability.
These Wüsthof Asian knives are great fun to work with and will turn even the mundane preparation of a dish into a culinary pleasure.
