Please read our Terms below for details. PLEASE NOTE: Because we took our photos outdoors the blade of this knife shows some reflections (of sky and clouds) and glare. In person it has NONE of these. Contrary to what many people believe, Hoffritz never actually manufactured items but was a design studio: a design studio who contracted with the best companies in the world to execute their cutting edge designs. Wusthof, of course, remains today one of the finest cutlery companies Solingen, Germany has ever known, and the knife was made there sometime in the period 1950's-60's. Wusthof knives of this ultra-fine line are prized world-wide for itheir highly-polished black horn handles and for their beautifully etched blades, which depict a semi-abstract composition of geometric, floral and animal forms.

Blade is stainless steel, polished to a mirror's finish, and measures 8.25" long (knife is 13.25" long overall). The blade is beautifully, expertly ground in a way that few others are and its resulting edge is frightfully effective and VERY keen. Its swooping blade glides through meats, poultry, fish, onions, tomaotes or anything else unfortunate enough to get in its way. Without doubt, however, the star of this piece is its genuine horn handle, hand-carved to an ergonomically correct grip, which is PERFECT.

This handle has a very slight curvature to it, which conforms to the human hand seamlessly. As you can see in the photos, it's a breathtaking masterpiece of the cutler's art, found here in excellent condition, appearing to have been used very little, if at all.

Our photos just don't do justice to this knife and we unconditionally gurantee your satisfaction with it. Without doubt, this is one of the finest slicing knives you'll ever use--lightweight, balanced, flexible and as beautiful to look at as it is to use.

Best of all, this knife predates the industry's widespread conversion to using recycled steel stock and was forged from virgin steel instead. Whether you are a professional or amateur chef, you'll instantly come to love this knife as one of your favorites. An heirloom quality piece, in heirloom quality condition, all offered at an affordable price.
