Yes, our Chef / Lead Instructor Jill Garcia Schmidt does look sharp and sexy in our kitchens. But it’s these knives that are the object of her affection these days. The Wüsthof Classic 8″ Vegetable Knife and the Wüsthof Classic 7″ Craftsman Hollow Edge. She’s here to show you why she describes them as ‘sharp & sexy”.
Wüsthof Classic 8” Vegetable Knife
The first thing you notice about the Vegetable Knife is the row of holes along the blade. These distinctive holes create air pockets between produce and the blade, preventing anything from sticking to the blade. The lengthwise ridge above the holes also deflects food away from the blade, keeping foods from sticking and significantly reducing friction and drag when chopping. Chef Jill says this makes this tool perfect for chopping and slicing fruits and vegetables.
Wüsthof Classic 7″ Craftsman Hollow Edge
She also loves the small Classic Craftsman Hollow Edge for its nice, light touch, and – let’s be honest – for the sexy look of it! Wüsthof calls the Craftsman ‘The Ultimate Everyday Knife’, a hybrid design combining the features of a chef’s knife, boning knife and carving knife, inspired by farm-to-table cooking. The wide ‘belly’ helps for rocking cuts, and its clip-point tip facilitates easy maneuvering around joints for de-boning and filleting, while its hollow-edge design allows for smooth, precise carving and slicing.
