Here at MetroKitchen.com we offer a couple of “Sharp Picks” on sale for a limited time. These are a selection of Wusthof knives at a special low price for just one month. For October 2011 we are offering the Wusthof Classic and Gourmet 7-inch nakiri knives! Check out our comparison and review below to learn more about these two excellent Wusthof nakiri knives.
The Wusthof Classic 7-inch nakiri knife (pictured right) and the Wusthof Gourmet 7-inch nakiri knife (pictured below) are Japanese-style knives that are meant for straight up-and-down chopping. These knives are ideal for chopping vegetables. They have a sharp, straight blade and a hollow edge that keeps pieces of veggies from sticking while you chop. This knife is an excellent alternative if you’re thinking about getting another chef’s knife or santoku knife. They can make vegetable chopping much quicker and easier. Thanks to Wusthof’s excellent stainless steel and poly handles, these knives are resistant to all damage from moisture, rust, and corrosion.
The Wusthof Classic 7-inch nakiri knife (above) is an amazing knife for home or professional chefs looking for a high-quality nakiri knife that will be sharp, long-lasting, durable, and easy to maintain. The Wusthof Gourmet 7-inch nakiri knife (right) is an excellent knife for those looking for entry-level knives or a great knife at an amazing price. The biggest difference between the two is that Classic version is forged for better strength and balance, whereas the Gourmet version is stamped. Stamped knives are made by stamping the knife’s shape from a flat blank of metal, like a cookie cutter. The benefit of stamping is a more affordable knife that still maintains all of the benefits of high-quality German stainless steel. The Classic version also has a bolster, which is a mound of metal between the blade and handle. This lets you know with certainty that it is a forged knife and also contributes to the knife’s balance and comfort. The handles on these two knives are made from the same moisture-resistant poly material, although the Gourmet nakiri knife’s handle is slightly larger.
The Wusthof Classic 7-inch nakiri knife is available now at MetroKitchen.com for $89.95, a $45 difference when compared to the regular price!
