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 6" Straight Meat Fork works in perfect harmony with the Wüsthof Classic Carving Knife. This two-pronged fork helps guide the carving knife away from your hands to efficiently slice large roasts. The meat fork also holds meat in place while slicing or serving.
