WSTHOF'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 8" Carving Knife has a longer and narrower blade than a Cook's Knife. This allows for the knife to cleanly cut through meats. The pointed tip is designed to help guide meat away from the bone.
