Wusthof's Classic line has been their best selling line for generations. This 4.5" Artisan Utility Knife is smaller than a chef's knife but larger than a paring knife making it a versatile kitchen tool. The scalloped edge cuts through meats like roasted poultry without damaging it, bread without compressing it, and tomatoes without squashing them. Its small size also makes it great for mincing herbs or cutting vegetables. The offset blade forces the hand farther away from the cutting board which allows the cook to slice through thicker foods.
