Whether you're a professional chef or amateur cook, you know that the best tools and ingredients are important for a successful experience. With over century of experience of producing the Genuine Swiss Army Knife, Wenger has channelled its expertise and technology to produce the Grand Maitre Collection. Entirely Swiss made, with a particular attention to detail, Wenger has set the industry standard of manufacturing stamped knives. When producing a stamped blade knife, the blade is cut out of a sheet of high quality stainless steel then tempered, ground, polished and sharpened. The result is a knife that is flatter and lighter than forged knives, which reduces hand fatigue with long or repetitive use. Wenger uses a custom blended stainless steel with an optimal combination of strength and flexibility and wear/corrosion resistance. Every single knife is sharpened, and polished by hand. Each knife is also individually inspected before and after the sharpening process. The handle is ergonomically designed, comfortable and non-slip even when wet. The handle is made from Polyamide 6; is non- porous and resistant to high temperatures. A hermetic seal between the handle and blade prohibits debris or germs from accumulating. Grand Maitre was recently the highest rated knife, (judged on versatility, steel composition, edge sharpness, and wear resistance) by the Swiss consumer programme A Bon Entendeur. This 20.1cm straight spatula is perfect for evenly spreading frosting, icing or cream. All Grand Maitre knives are 100-percent made in Switzerland and are dishwasher safe with mild detergent.
