We hear the question almost daily – “What is the purpose of that knife with the forked tip?” This Wusthof Classic is a tomato knife with a tip designed to make coring tomatoes simple. The serrated cutting edge allows for the easiest peeling ever. Home growers harvesting bushels of tomatoes will want to consider this knife. Stop by Gourmet Galeria and check it out while we have a decent inventory and a special price.
Wusthof, founded in Solingen, Germany in 1814, has a solid gold record with Gourmet Galeria’s customers. Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of specialized high carbon steel – razor sharp, with a long-lasting cutting edge, high stain resistance, and easily restorable edge. We don’t hesitate to recommend this fine cutlery.
