Wusthof Gourmet Offset Handle BreadFull length bread knives or shorter utility/sandwich knives usually suffer from the same shortcomings: the narrow blades bring knuckles down to the counter top and the last cuts have to be made by dragging the tip of the blade across the board. The offset handle style of the Wusthof Gourmet 7" Bread/Deli Knife solves that problem, and the slight curve of the blade makes that last finishing cut accurate and smooth.

Although the dropped blade, laser cut from a blank of high carbon stainless steel, won't find service as a general purpose utility knife, it will be very useful as a backup slicing blade for tomatoes and other sandwich ingredients such as breads, rolls, and sandwiches.

This is not the forged steel construction that many Wusthof customers have grown to expect, but the light weight stamped steel build of this knife is very durable, with gap free composite handle slabs riveted securely to a full handle tang. In place of the usual heavy forged bolster, a dropped section of the handle itself forms a shield for the fingers, offering a secure grip while staying well above the cutting surface.

As with all fine cutlery, even though this knife is dishwasher safe, Wusthof recommends hand washing and quick hand drying as the best way of maintaining edge and finish. The serrated blade keeps its edge well, but should be returned to the factory when sharpening is required.
