Well known German quality and cutting-edge technology are brought together in the contemporary Wusthof Grand Prix II knife series. Wusthof Grand Prix II knives are forged from one piece of specially tempered, high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength and sharpness. This Grand Prix II knife is perfectly balanced for effortless cutting and features Wusthof PEtec - Precision Edge Technology - for an easily maintained razor-sharp edge that retains its cutting performance twice as long as other knives. The bold, ergonomic red handle is designed to fit comfortably in your hand, and is made of a seamless, synthetic material for a hygienic grip. The tang extends deep into the slip-resistant handle for exceptional durability and the bolster completes the balanced feel, protects fingers and facilitates honing and sharpening the entire length of the blade. The Grand Prix II 9-inch double-serrated bread knife is designed to cut even the freshest loaves of bread with ease, but is also ideal for cutting cakes, roast, or even tough skinned fruits and vegetables.
