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 10" Super Slicer has a long slender blade with a rounded tip. The blade is longer than many other knives so that it can slice across large roasts in one swift movement. The scalloped edge cuts though turkey and other meats, crusty bread, and tomatoes all without squishing or compressing.
