Wusthof Kitchen Surfer 5
The Wüsthof Kitchen Surfer 5 is a razor-sharp Chai Doa knife. The Chai Dao is a traditional Chinese knife shape. Thanks to the slightly curved blade the Chai Dao is perfect for cutting, rocking and chopping.
Wüsthof Chao Dao blade: razor-sharp stainless steel
The blade made from chromium-vanadium steel (X50CrMoV15) is forged from one solid piece of steel. It is sharpened according to Wüsthof’s PEtec technology. This means that for each blade a sharpening angle is determined with the help of a computer. Afterwards it is precisely sharpened on a wet sharpening stone. After thorough inspection each knife leaves the production line, ready for a life of intensive use.
Wüsthof processes the steel in a specific way to make sure it has a high hardness of 58 Rockwell. As such the knife retains its sharpness for a really long time. However, if you notice that the knife is not as sharp as it used to be, all you have to do is move it over a honing steel. The result is a razor-sharp knife that is amazing to use.
