Wusthof describes as: The added heft and long blade of this steak house-style knife provides the extra leverage needed to quickly slice through the largest porterhouse or rib-eye. Its razor-sharp serrated leading edge slices cleanly and won’t tear even the most tender cuts. Knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Edges are hand ground for sharpness and precision. Wüsthof’s Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) ensures a 20% sharper blade with twice the edge retention. Full tang is triple riveted to the handle for exceptional durability and control. Synthetic handle is contoured for a comfortable grip.
