Wusthof's new Epicure collection incorporates the high precision German design and stainless steel with an American-made wood fiber handle. The handles are made with Richlite, a composite of recycled and sustainably-grown wood fibers. The handle features a design that is slightly spherical in nature for added comfort and an elegant look. The Epicure blades are wider for easier, more agile handling with a solid bolster for heft, finger protection and a more secure grip. Wusthof Epicure knives are backed by a lifetime warranty from Wusthof.
