Wusthof Cheese Knives : Since 1814, knives bearing the Wusthof name and the Trident logo have been crafted in the world's "Cutlery Capital" of Solingen, Germany. Today, in a state-of-the-art facility, that tradition of quality is ensured as old-world craftsmanship meets twenty first century production methods. The Soft Cheese Knife has a skeletal openwork blade which is essential to reduce sticking for smooth slices of soft cheeses.The etched blade surface helps prevent sticking. The Hard Cheese Knife is designed specifically to slice smoothly through hard cheeses like aged cheddar and gruyere. Use the forked tip for serving. The Parmesan Cheese Knife has a short, but sturdy blade that is ideal for cutting even the hardest Parmesan cheese with no problem. Product Features Precision forged from a single blank of high carbon steel. Distinctive bolster prevents your hand from slipping onto the blade. Skillfully honed cutting edge. Handle is a virtually indestructible composite, buffed by hand for a smooth finish and triple-riveted to the full tang for optimum strength and balance. Laser-controlled and tested cutting edge. Full warranty. Made in Solingen, Germany.
This set of three knives is only produced in the classic series by wusthof, but as the base of the blade is as thin as the the rest of the knife blade, it can be sharpened entirely just like the more expensive ikon series. Each knife performs its specialized function with ease and holds up to everyday use. The parmesan knife works just as well for all hard grating cheeses, either to break apart a wedge or just for slicing for eating. I bought all three at the same time to save money, and I would highly recommend this set as a special gift or just to complete your own classic collection for cheese enthusiasts.
