Dishwasher safe, but hand-washing is recommended. Made in Solingen, Germany.
I bought this knife to replace one exactly like it that was lost from my set. I love my Wusthof knives...all of them. This one in particular is used a lot in my kitchen. It is a great length for cutting so many fruits and veges in dinner prep.
