WÜSTHOF’S best-selling collection for generations, CLASSIC full-tang knives are precision-forged from a single piece of an exclusive high-carbon stainless steel. CLASSIC knives feature a new handle design made of a highly durable synthetic material – Polyoxymethylene (POM) – which has a tighter molecular structure to resist fading and discoloration. The CLASSIC 5" Soft Cheese Knife has large, distinctive holes that create large air pockets between the cheese and the blade. These large air pockets prevent soft cheese from sticking to the blade. This knife is ideal for cutting cheeses like brie and camembert.
