The Wüsthof Epicure 12 cm vegetable knife is a relatively small, light-weight and versatile knife. The knife can be used for many different tasks. You could, for instance, use this knife to cut your fruits and vegetables. However, peeling your vegetables or cutting out the bruised parts of fruit is also a piece of cake with this little knife.
Wüsthof Epicure: the striking blade
The shape of the Wüsthof Epicure is a little broader to ensure that more pressure is put on the product that is being cut. The full-tang blade is made from one piece of X50CrMoV15 steel. In addition, the excellent quality of the steel has been given another dimension while it was forged and during the subsequent solidification process. As such the steel determines the sharpness and sustainability of the knife. Furthermore, the hardness of 58 HRC guarantees that the knife remains sharp, flexible and is easy to sharpen.
Wüsthof Epicure: innovative crop
The newly shaped crop ensures an optimal balance and gives you more freedom while you are cutting. In addition, the crop protects the fingers making sure that they do not come into contact with the blade. Via the crop the blade seamlessly merges with the handle.
Wüsthof Epicure: the stylish handle
The handle is made from layers of paper and synthetic resin. As such you end up with the feel of wood, but the hygienic qualities of plastic. Like the blade the handle is also slightly bigger. The ergonomically designed handle ensures optimal comfort. The front part is relatively broad but becomes slimmer towards the back to fit the natural position of the hand. The handle is attached with two stainless steel rivets.
