Known as the “jack of all trades.” the Wüsthof Epicure 8” cook’s knife conquers any challenge in the kitchen. This all-purpose knife is the most important tool in the Epicure line, designed for a variety of cutting tasks including chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing, and disassembling. With its wider curved belly, the blade is ideal for creating a rocking motion while providing additional surface area to easily transport food to the pot. The half bolster reduces the weight of the knife, and allows you to use the entire blade while cutting.
Combining the efficiency and lightness of Japanese knives and with the quality and strength of German steel, this knife works with all cooking styles and sets the standard for performance and function. The broader blade and newly designed bolster offer the right weight and balance for effortless, comfortable cutting — imagine it as a natural extension of your hand.
Forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, Wüsthof’s Epicure knives offer the standard Wüsthof Rockwell hardness of 58º, the ideal hardness for lasting edge retention, integral blade strength, and ease of maintenance. Using the most unique materials in the industry, the Epicure handle is crafted from a durable wood composite and resin. The ergonomic shape is contoured to adapt to the natural contraction of the hand — for everyone who lives to cook, Wüsthof’s new line of Epicure knives will inspire creativity while enhancing performance. Crafted in the historic cutlery centre of Solingen, Germany.
