Wusthof's best-selling collection for generations, CLASSIC full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stain-free steel. CLASSIC knives feature a new handle design made of a highly durable synthetic material Polyoxymethylene (POM) which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration.
The CLASSIC 4 1/2Ó Artisan Utility Knife is smaller than a cook's knife but larger than a paring knife, making it the perfect knife for magnitude of tasks. The Artisan Utility Knife has a scalloped edge that cuts though meat such as turkey without damaging it, bread without compressing it and tomatoes without squashing them. The small size makes it a versatile knife and is also perfect for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cutting vegetables or cutting small meats.
