Wusthof Culinar steak knives are fully forged knives with ergonomic handles. They are made from the best quality steel and do not have a serrated edge - they do not need one. They should be sharpened in the same way as any kitchen knife. The gently curved ergonomic handles on the Wusthof Culinar knives have been designed to enhance the balance of the knife.

- ADVICE - we recommend that all knives are washed individually and immediately after use - ideally in luke warm water with a soft sponge. Knives should then be dried and stored. This is the safest way to clean knives - no rubbing required, and it is the best way of reducing corrosion. Stainless steel - from any manufacturer - is never 100% rustproof and may be attacked by food acids -such small blemishes can be removed with a metal cleaner.
- ADVICE - we recommend that you sharpen your knives regularly - preferably every time that you use them. They will perform better and will be safer to use. A sharp knife is a safe knife - accidents happen most often with dull knives.
- ADVICE - knives should never be stored loose in a drawer - it's unsafe and it will dull the edges. Knife blocks an magnetic racks both keep knives safe and protect their edges.
- ADVICE - never chop onto steel, glass or marble - these surfaces are too hard and will quickly bull your knives. Wooden or plastic boards are more suitable.
- ADVICE - never abuse a knives - they are not can opener and should never be used to chop onto bones - only a meat cleaver is suitable for this job.
