Knives have been ground extra thin for the ultimate cutting performance, although it is not recommended to cut through bones. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
I had priced these knives both on and off line, this was the best value. Our kids gave us a starter set of Wusthof Knives for Christmas a year ago. I know you pay for what you get but some of the places I checked were double the price for only 4 knives. I love my steak knives. Wouldn't trade them for any others.
