Forged and stamped blades
Wusthof knives are forged from carbon steel and stamped from stainless steel. The difference between the two is that forged blades are harder and stronger than stamped blades. Stamped blades are softer and weaker than forged blades.
Hardness and sharpness
Forged blades are harder and sharper than stamped blades. Hardness refers to how hard the blade is. A higher hardness rating indicates a harder knife. Stamping creates a softer blade because the metal is not heated during forging. Blade geometry Answer: A sturdier handle is better suited for heavier tasks. The thicker the handle, the easier it is to hold onto. Handle thickness varies depending on the type of knife. Knives with thinner handles are lighter and easier to carry around.
Knife handles are available in many different shapes. Most knives have a straight handle. Straight handles are easy to grip and comfortable to hold. However, if you prefer a curved handle, you can choose from a wide range of styles. Curved handles are generally longer and narrower than straight handles. This gives the user a greater leverage to cut with. Edge geometry Answer: Sharpening is done to remove burrs and rough edges from the edge of the blade. Sharpening removes material from the edge of the knife. It does not change the overall length of the knife. To sharpen a knife, place it on a stone or other flat surface. Hold the tip of the knife against the stone while moving the blade back and forth across the stone. Do not move the knife too quickly or it may break off.
