Sharpened according to Wüsthof's new PEtec standards. I won't repeat here their marketing stuff, but basically it's a simple V-edge instead of the old convex edge, at an angle of some 13 degree per side.
Fit &Finish OK, spine and choil a bit sharp, normal at this price point.
I normally wouldn't have mentioned the factory edge, but these knives are meant for a general public.
Consistent grinding, nice edges, shoulders should have been eased a bit, but both edges weren't deburred. The first one even had the most spectacular wire edge I've ever seen. Very sharp indeed, but breaking off within a few cuts, leaving a damaged and dull edge behind.
No big deal, I do have a few stones...
But what was the idea of these Wüsthof marketing guys??
