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 8” Butcher Knife features a striking silhouette with a contoured finger guard, a dramatic curved hollow-edge blade and a pronounced skinning tip. This bold statement piece is far more versatile than a traditional butcher knife, perfectly designed for portioning chops and steaks and trimming cutlets and filets. The ideal size and shape for countless food prep tasks, this knife is perfectly balanced with a comfortable over-sized handle. Its razor sharp edge effortlessly skins and slices large fruits and vegetables, making it as functional as it is handsome.
