Prized possessions of professional chefs, Wusthof knives are an invaluable asset of any kitchen. Every element of this renowned cutlery contributes to its precision and ease of use. In Solingen, Germany, each piece is hand-forged in 38 manufacturing steps by skilled craftsmen. The high-carbon stainless steel blades are hardened to maintain a sharp edge and full tangs provide perfect balance with riveted, high-impact composition handles.
The serrated edge of this Classic 8" Bread Knife makes cutting a loaf as easy as slicing through warm butter.
Wusthof's newest state of the art technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on Classic knives. This technology allows for an exacting edge from the tip of the knife down to the heel of the knife. With this newer precision, the knives are made sharper to 14 degrees per side for a total of 28 degrees. The knives are now sharper and this refinement increases the sharpness retention because exacting angles and edges last longer than edges sharpened by hand. The result is a knife that is 30% sharper and the ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) lasts twice as long.
Just what I needed to slice the crusty bread we often have for dinner
I seem to reach for this bread knife for many purposes--bagels and buns and breads but also to slice tomatoes, etc. The 8 inch size is a nice size as it is small enough to put on a bread board at the table too. I think the Wustoff Classic line is still the best for general kitchen purposes.
I gave this knife to my Mother for her Birthday. She is thrilled with it....says it is the best knife she has ever had. She even held the bread in the air and sliced a small piece just to show how sharp it was. (we don't recommend this however)
A great knife, really cuts up a chicken fast.

Remember never to store good bakery bread in plastic bags- it will ruin the crust. Instead, store in a paper bag at room temperature. If you don't finish it within a day or two, slice and put in the freezer for the next time you want toast for breakfast.
