Large game fish like salmon are too valuable to risk on inferior tools — if you’re lucky enough to need a way to slice smoked salmon this 11-inch cutting edge Wusthof Gourmet Salmon Slicer provides the method. Designed especially for thin precise cuts of delicate fish, the salmon slicer’s plain edge blade is long enough to span the width of the catch. The rounded tip won’t snag the edges of the cut.
In skilled hands, this compound tapered blade can cut seafood paper thin without tearing or distortion. Only advanced manufacturing methods make that level of precision possible. With a blade this long, small distortions should be commonplace. Wusthof cuts the slender stock for these full tang knives from rolls of alloy steel — specifics are etched on the blade. Cheaper knives would be stamped out from blanks with presses. Wusthof knives are laser cut, eliminating crude distortions in the knife blank. Laser measurements guarantee the precision of both grind and edge. The full length of the precisely tempered narrow blade is hollow ground to reduce cutting friction — juices collecting in the hollow help lubricate the cut.
The result is a blade that looks simple but holds many unseen qualities that would have been impossible to achieve a century ago. The highly polished and razor sharp high carbon stainless steel is easily touched up by hand with a honing steel. Though the handle is plain, the polymer slabs are shaped to give the user a secure and comfortable grip without any unnecessary bulk.
Always wash this fine knife by hand to prevent damage to the finish or the edge.
