Wüsthof’s best-selling collection for generations, the Classic line of full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. The Classic knives feature a unique handle design, that’s crafted from a highly-durable Polyoxymethylene, a synthetic material that has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. This Classic 5 Serrated utility knife is smaller than a cook’s knife but larger than a paring knife, making it the perfect knife for magnitude of tasks. A utility knife is much like a versatile paring knife and is perfect for mincing shallots, onions and herbs as well as cutting vegetables or cutting small meats. The added serrated edge has saw-like teeth that enable the blade to slice cleanly through food with delicate textures such as bread or soft vegetables and fruit.
