Known worldwide for their superior performance, Wüsthof knives are the cutlery of choice among many professionals and by discriminating amateur chefs. The Classic series features a traditional styling that makes it the most popular of the Wüsthof lines. The blades are formed with the perfect balance of high-carbon steel and a stain-resistant alloy so they retain their edge longer and are easier to resharpen. The blade is ground and polished by computer, ensuring perfect tapering from bolster to tip, and the edge is then hand honed for precision slicing. The sturdy feel of this knife is achieved by the weighted bolster, which is considered to be Wüsthof's signature feature. The tang runs through the synthetic handle and is secured with three rivets.

Perfect as a wedding gift, this 10-piece set has all the kitchen cutlery basics with room to grow. The knives in the set include an 8-inch cook's knife, an 8-inch carving knife, a 6-inch sandwich knife, an 8-inch serrated bread knife, a 5-inch serrated sausage knife, a 4-1/2-inch utility knife, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife. A pair of kitchen shears and a 9-inch sharpening steel complete the set. Everything fits neatly into the rubber-footed oak block, which has space to eventually add six steak knives and two more prep knives.Cristina Vaamonde

I recently purchased the Wustof Classic set after much research between the various Wustof, Henkel and Messermeister models. In general, I felt the Wustof's had a much nicer feel and balance to them. I also prefered the blade weight and thickness of the Wustof. I personally prefer the Classic over the Grand Prix, but it is 100% personal preference as the only real difference is the handles.

I compared the Wustof's with the other brands at one of the knife stores in the mall. Comparing them side-by-side was very enlightening and made my mind up that I will only buy the Wustof's from now on. I highly recomend going to one of the mall knife shops and playing with them, most have a wide selection of all of the high quality knives. For this kind of money it is the only wise way to make your decision. I would recomend purchasing from Amazon.com though, the knife stores I went to were about 25% more expensive unless they had a "sale" on a specific item, in which case it was the same price as Amazon.com.

These are one of the best knives you can get, although they are no better than the other models and makes. All knives at this level are top quality, please base your decision on preference and try them out first.

***Update*** It is almost 2011 now and this set is still in my kitchen. Regular use of the steel in the set, along with a couple sharpenings, and this set is still sharp and used daily. Highly recomended. Its been over 5 years of use now and there is no degradation of performance or appearance. Every year that goes by the hefty purchase price of them gets smaller and smaller when looked at versus less expensive sets that would have had to be replaced by now.

My husband and I received this knife set for our wedding to replace a cheap set we've had since college. My husband is more of a cook than I am, so I was skeptical when he decided to add the knives to our registry because I thought the old ones were good enough.

Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when I started chopping vegetables and slicing through meat! The balance of these knives is incredible, and it's such a nice change to let the knives do all of the work of cutting instead of having to hack my way through my food. Cooking has actually become enjoyable to me since prepping food is no longer a chore. We've had the set for seven weeks now, and even with daily use we haven't needed to sharpen any of the knives yet.

Out of all of the knives in the block, The ones that see the most use are the 8 inch cook's knife and the 6 inch sandwich knife, although they all get used. We also decided to purchase other knives to fill the block; a 7 inch santoku knife and a 6 piece steak knife set. If you don't end up buying the 10 piece set (yes it is quite pricey!), the santoku knife is worth buying on it's own! It is slightly lighter than the cook's knife and is wonderful to chop garlic, onions or other smaller vegetables with.

Aside from the price, there really aren't any drawbacks to owning these knives! Being constructed so well, they will definitely last us a lifetime. Even if you only cook occasionally, these knives can help you significantly cut down on your prep time and may even make you want to cook more! My husband and I both love these knives and anyone who tries them out will love them too.

Verified Purchase
It might seem like a lot to spend for a set of knives, especially with the infomercials that show people sawing bricks in half with their product, then micro cutting a tomato all for $19.95. But this is a lifetime purchase. The knives are balanced and have a great weight and feel in your hands. A quick honing with the steel each use and they stay frighteningly sharp. Like everything else, if you have the right tools, the job is infinitely easier, safer and more pleasurable. I've had my set for over a year and they seem as new as the day they arrived. One note of practicality is that I don't really need all the knives in the set and regularly use only four. If really pressed or confined in a budget you could get along nicely with just two; the 8 inch cooks knife and the 3 1/2 inch paring knife, and of course a steel. Don't be tempted to put them in the dish washer. They clean very easily with a soapy sponge. Intense heat will change the steel in the blade and can be nicked and damaged. Just a final note that Consumer reports rated Wusthof as the best in their tests as well. There are several handle designs, but personally I like the Classic. The Culinar Premiere is beautiful and has all metal handles which are seemingly more durable. But at twice the price are for the very well heeled only. Highly recommended; you won't regret your purchase.

I was tired of buying cheap knives only to have to spend as much time trying to sharpen them as I did actually chopping with them. I was at a friend's house and he had these wonderful Wusthof knives. I was so impressed I had to order my own - a big investment for someone as cheap as me. But let me tell you, they are worth every penny! Now cutting and chopping is done in half the time with much better results.

One drawback - I didn't realize how rusty my knife handling skills had become. I was so used to dull cheap knives that I had become quite aggressive. With these knives, the knife actually does the work - not me! I was chopping onions, potatoes, peppers, carrots and these knives went clean thru with almost no effort leaving the cutting board to take the brunt of the force I was so used to mustering. I was able to dice tomatoes in no time without making them into mush and the bread knife made short work of a crusty loaf of italian bread.

I am looking forward to a lifetime of effortless chopping. I am learning to be more gentle with the knives and with the cutting board - and I have learned to respect knives all over again. Why didn't anyone tell me how much difference good knives can make?

I know $300+ is a lot to spend, but take it from a cheap bas***rd, these knives are well worth the investment. Maybe you don't want to spend so much all at once, check out the smaller sets available and check out sales and special deals - you won't be disappointed!
