As WÜSTHOF's best-selling collection for generations, Classic full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. The Classic series features 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 9" Double Serrated Bread Knife has double the number of serrations of a standard serrated knife. The knife glides through crusty breads with minimal crumbs without creating damage to the soft interior of the bread. This knife can also be used on delicate produce or angel food cake. This style of edge is also ideal for left handed users as it does not pull like a traditional serration.
