Wusthof Gourmet Utility Knife : Utility knives serve a wide range of culinary purposes. Use the 6" size for slicing hard processed meats such as salami, for spreading sandwich fillings and trimming crusts, or for cutting the rind from cantaloupes and honeydew melons. The 4.5" size is perfect for slicing onions, portabella mushrooms, and lengthwise slabs of zucchini and yellow squash for grilling.

Compression rivets securely attach the high-impact handles to the full tang for superior balance and maneuverability. Dishwasher safe, but hand washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
