The knife is a true all-rounder. Whether used for spreading butter, chopping potatoes or cutting meat, the knife plays an important part in every meal.
The knife: making up your basic cutlery set together with a fork and spoon
The knife is set on the right-hand side of the plate and is an essential part of any place setting. When setting the table, the cutting surface of the knife always points towards the plate. There are two different types of knives: there are knives with a blade made from special blade steel which is inserted in the knife handle, and there are monobloc knives, which are manufactured directly from one piece. Both types of knives are available in the WMF online shop. Dinner knives typically have a slightly serrated edge, which enables you to cut each ingredient or each item on your plate easily.
