With the efficiency and lightness of Japanese knives paired with the quality and strength of German steel, Epicure embodies a new type of knife – one that works with all cooking styles, and sets the standard for performance and function. The broader blade, and newly designed bolster offer the right weight and balance for effortless, comfortable cutting- It’s a natural extension of your hand.
Forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, Epicure offers the standard WÜSTHOF Rockwell hardness of 58º. Every EPICURE knife undergoes a PEtec sharpening process developed by WÜSTHOF to achieve an edge that is 20% sharper at a 15º angle, with double the edge retention for a blade that will last a lifetime.
Known as the “jack of all trades”, the WÜSTHOF Epicure 8” cook’s knife conquers any challenge in the kitchen. This all-purpose knife is the most important tool in the Epicure line up designed for a variety of cutting tasks including; chopping, slicing, dicing, mincing, and disassembling. With its wider curved belly, the blade is ideal for creating a rocking motion while providing additional surface area to easily transport food to the pot. The half bolster reduces the weight of the knife, and allows you to use the entire blade while cutting.
