New WUSTHOF technology offers superior sharpness!
The latest cutting performance tests carried out by the FGW (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e.V., a German research association for tools and materials based in Remscheid) confirm that WUSTHOF forged knives offer the best quality when compared to other well-known, single-layer brands.
The extensive tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 8442-5. WUSTHOF knives have a considerably higher ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) and maintain this performance for an extremely long time (TCC = Total Card Cut).
When compared with the winners in the "cook´s knife" category awarded by German consumer organisation "Stiftung Warentest" in its 1st edition of 2008, forged WUSTHOF knives featuring the new PEtec technology produce a result which is about 20% higher. The technology:
The blades are measured by laser before sharpening.
Computer programmes calculate the precise sharpening angle for each blade.
The knives are then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots.
Finally, the knives are given a final polish using a special disc. The benefits:
PEtec from WUSTHOF - superior sharpness for professional and home cooks!
- Extremely high initial cutting performance.
- Exceptionally long edge retention / long service life of blade.
- Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade.
- Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality.
