Bringing contemporary features to the most iconic blade shapes, the CLASSIC Demi-Bolster Blade Assortment is defined by its streamlined half-bolster design. This updated bolster allows for full use of the edge’s cutting surface and permits effective sharpening along the entire length of the blade. In addition, each of the blades in the CLASSIC Demi-Bolster Blade Assortment is 20% lighter than its counterpart in the CLASSIC collection, making it as light and agile as it is comfortable. CLASSIC knives feature WÜSTHOF’s patented Precision Edge Technology, (PEtec). WÜSTHOF’s newest state-of-the-art technology, Precision Edge Technology incorporates a new computer controlled method for putting the edge on forged knives. With this patented technology, the knives are made 20% sharper to 14 degrees per side (10 degrees per side on Asian-style blades). This refinement doubles the sharpness retention because exacting angles and edges last longer than edges sharpened by hand.
