Classic 9" (23cm) Cook's Knife - Half Bolster

Knives should fit nice and safely in the hand. This is where the bolster, the connection between the blade and the handle, plays a central role. It provides the right balance and also makes up the weight of a forged knife. Those with delicate hands, however, may find some knives too heavy for them. For those who would like things to be a little easier in future, the knife specialist WÜSTHOF now offers new half bolster knives, which are 30 percent lighter than the traditional full bolster knives from the popular CLASSIC range.

  • The cook's knife is the most important tool in the kitchen.
  • The wide, curved blade is ideal for cutting, slicing, dicing and carving.
  • The reduced bolster shape (half bolster) and thinner edge of the blade reduce the weight of the knife.
  • The reduced weight ensures fatigue-free, precise work, whilst the special bolster shape makes it possible to use and sharpen the entire blade.
  • Forged from a single piece of chromium-molybdenum-vanadium blade steel (X50 Cr MoV 15).
  • The ergonomically shaped handles – feature three durable rivets.
  • Note: Cook’s knives may be very robust, but they are sharpened to a particularly thin edge. They should on no account be used for chopping through bones, but only for slicing.
