URBAN FARMER: The New Range from Wüsthof
Combining the natural beauty of sustainably grown and thermo-treated beech wood with the high-tech precision and long-lasting sharpness that Wüsthof is known for, the brand new Urban Farmer range from Wüsthof takes care of all vegetable and herb preparation – from veggie garden to plate.
A KNIFE SERIES FOR CITY GARDENERS
Today, more than half of the world’s population live in towns and cities. This worldwide trend towards urban living, coupled with the growing interest in 'growing your own' means that so many of us enthusiastically sow, cultivate and harvest our own veggies or herbs wherever we can, be it in our gardens, on balconies or in pots on window sills. The preparation of a meal doesn't just begin at the chopping board; it begins when we snip off those fresh herbs or break off the first ripe tomato. Enter the brand new range from Wüsthof – Urban Farmer – a range that celebrates farm-fresh food and the full journey, from plant to plate.
SUSTAINABLE TOOLS FOR THE ENVIRONMENTALLY AWARE
Designed by accomplished German designer, Bjoern Berger, the Urban Farmer range is committed to sustainability, protecting the environment and inspiring creativity in the kitchen with fresh, home-grown produce.
Made from sustainably grown and thermo-treated beech wood, the ergonomic handles of the Urban Farmer knives are extremely robust, comfortable and water-resistant. They also have a non-slip bolster made from a special high-performance synthetic material, that provides a secure grip even when working with wet hands.
The blades are made from stainless steel with a high carbon content – they are flexible under pressure and easy to resharpen too. Their long-lasting sharpness is ensured by a Rockwell hardness of 58.
THE RIGHT KNIFE FOR EVERY TASK
All the knives in the Urban Farmer series are well-balanced, easy-to-use and efficient. In the garden, the pruning knife and machete are the knives to reach for. The pruning knife is designed with a striking curve at the tip, making it suitable for harvesting, preening and peeling fruit and small vegetables. Whereas the powerful machete, with a combination of serrated edge and smooth grind, is the optimal tool for harvesting large vegetables, like whole heads of lettuce or digging planting holes.
When it comes to preparation and plating, the Urban Farmer range boasts an array of knives including a bread knife, paring knife, utility knife, Santoku knife, a set of four steak knives as well as two chef's knives in various sizes. Plus, the range features a handy toolbox made from beech wood and stainless steel that is ideal for storage as well as transporting your tools effortlessly from outside to inside.
