Product Description

The Classic 12-piece set includes a 2-3/4-inch triming knife, 3-inch serrated parer, 3-1/2-inch parer, 4-1/2-inch utility knife, 4-1/2-inch multi prep knife, 5-inch santoku, 6-inch utility, 8-inch bread, 8-inch cooks, 9 steel, kitchen shears and a 17 slot storage block. Located in the cutlery capital of the world, Solingen Germany, the wusthof factory history goes back as far as 1814 when the company was listed with the duchy of berg. To this day, the company remains family owned. Throughout it’s history, wüsthof has focused almost solely on the manufacturing of forged knives for the professional chef and home cooking enthusiast. Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Our unique compound angle is not seen in many knives. This angle tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to allow for a sturdy, yet extremely sharp edge while it also tapers from the bolster to the tip to give the knife strength as well as flexibility.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Michael Lepp on February 26, 2011
We purchased this set in February 2007. It is a pleasure to work with a quality set of knives. The knives sharpen readily and have a good heft and feel. They make working in the kitchen more enjoyable. Up until now we would have rated this set highly.

However, over the past year nearly every knife in the set and the kitchen shears have developed cracks in the handles at the or between the rivets. In some cases, the handle material has come loose entirely. We had a similar problem on one knife about two years ago and we got a replacement under warranty. We are requesting replacements for the affected blades now and hope to get a similar result.

This was disappointing. We had bought a single Wusthof Classic knfie about 25 years ago and it has been a rock solid high quality knife. That's what had led us to invest in an expensive set like this.

The only reason for 2 stars (instead of one) is that we MAY get satisfaction under warranty.

**** Edit Update March 16 2011 ** Upgrade to 4 stars (Maybe 5 IF the replacements last)

We had to pay shipping costs to return the knives for warranty inspection. Uncomfortable position to be in waiting to see if the company would agree to warranty. But we received complete replacement of all returned blades very quickly. Satisfied.

Verified Purchase
The block is a piece of garbage. It had many cracks where the block was laminated together so I returned the product only to receive another cracked block. Quality knives from Germany that come with a Chinese quality block to display them in.
I'd rather store them jammed into a 2x4 on my counter than the blocks they keep sending me
