Product Description

Product Description

The comprehensive selection of knives in the wusthof classic 26-piece set includes a 2-3/4 bird beak parer, 3-1/2-Inch parer, 4-1/2-Inch utility, eight 4-1/2-Inch steak knives, 5-Inch tomato, 5-Inch boning, 6-Inch fork, 6-Inch utility, 6-Inch meat cleaver, 7-Inch santoku, 7-Inch fillet knife, 9-Inch bread knife and 8-Inch cooks knife, 8 inc carving knife, 10-Inch wide cooks knife, a 10-Inch honing steel as well as kitchen shears and a 25 slot storage block the set makes a lasting and meaningful gift for newlyweds and chefs of all abilities. Wusthof classic knives are precision forged from a single-piece of exceptional quality German steel alloy. The edges of these knives are razor sharp using our laser guided peptic sharpening technology. Our exceptional quality German steel alloy is featured in all our quality knives. Our unique steel alloy is specially tempered to be durable as well as allowing for extended edge retention. As a result, wusthof knives are not too hard and brittle and can easily be given an edge in your own kitchen. For nearly 200-year wusthof has been crafting fine cutlery in, "the cutlery capital of the world, " Solingen Germany. At wusthof we proudly etch the name of Solingen Germany right onto our knives. This is a privilege not granted to all knife manufactures as strict rules of origin apply. We treasure our nearly 200-year German tradition and are proud to represent the city of Solingen. Family owned and operated by the wusthof family since 1814.

Tough polypropylene handles with full, visible tangs and the traditional three rivets distinguish Classic knives from Wüsthof's other cutlery lines. Otherwise Classic knives are identical to other Wüsthof knives, embodying all the virtues that have earned the German manufacturer world renown. The principal parts of a Wüsthof knife--blade, bolster, and tang--are forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, and the blade is precisely tapered from bolster to tip and from back to hand-honed edge. The blades and beautifully formed bolsters are not as thick as on some knives. As a result, despite their heft, strength, and durability, Wüsthof knives are pleasingly delicate and marvelously balanced in action.

This set equips a serious cook with nearly every cutting edge imaginable--there are 14 kitchen knives and eight 4-1/2-inch steak knives--plus a 10-inch sharpening steel to keep their edges aligned, tough kitchen shears, a 6-inch serving fork, and a 25-slot oak block to store everything on the counter within reach. The kitchen knives include a 2-3/4-inch peeling knife, a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a 4-1/2-inch utility knife, a 5-inch tomato knife, a 5-inch boning knife, a 9-inch bread knife, a 6-inch sandwich knife, a 7-inch flexible fillet knife, a 5-inch cook's knife, a 6-inch cook's knife, an 8-inch cook's knife, a 10-inch cook's knife, an 8-inch carving knife, and a 6-inch cleaver. These knives should be hand washed. --Fred Brack

This is the mother of all knife sets.
There are really two main competitors in the high-end mainstream kitchen knife market: Henckels and Wusthof. Those who have used both usually have a preference. My preference (and therefore bias you should know about) is for the Wusthofs.
The Wusthof Classic line is the more conservative counterpart to the Grand Prix line. The only difference, however, is the handle style. I personally prefer the Grand Prix, but this is an issue of personal preference. The balance and grip of these knives are as close to perfect as I have found. For those wondering what benefits a higher priced knife provides, one benefit is that the blade (or tang) is one piece all the way through the handle. This makes the blade much stronger, and less likely to snap.
This set includes a 6, 8, and 10 inch chef's knives; 2 ¾ inch peeling knife; 3 ½ inch paring; 4 ½ inch utility; 5 inch tomato; 9 inch bread; 5 inch boning; 8 inch carving knife and fork; 6 inch sandwich; 6 inch flexible fillet; 7 inch santoku; 6 inch cleaver, eight steak knives, sharpening steel, kitchen shears, and an oak block
The chef's knives are great knives. This set includes all three sizes of chef's knives offered in the Grand Prix line, 6, 8 and 10 inch. For most home cooks, I think the 8 inch knife is the best choice. The 6 inch is a bit small for bigger jobs, but the 10 inch is too big for most jobs.
The Wusthof 4 ½ inch utility knife is a great all-around knife. This is the knife I use for the majority of my small chopping work (when I don't use a Chef's knife).
As for the 3 ½ inch paring knife, this knife falls into the category of overkill for me. Most cooks will get by just fine with the 4 ½ inch utility knife.

I didn't buy my Wusthof knife collection as a set, but I wish I had. This block set includes everything I've aquired over the years, plus a couple of items that are still on my wish list. It may sound like overkill, but nothing here (with the exception of the steak knives) is redundant or unneeded in a well-stocked kitchen. The only improvement I would make is to add a second paring knife.

-- Which chef's knife to use depends on the size and balance of your hand, and how fine the task will be. Petite and average-sized women tend to prefer the 5 or 6-inch blade, average-sized and large men tend to prefer the 8 or 10. (Most sets ship with the 8). If you are a cooking couple, these four will provide a knife comfortable to both sets of hands, and appropriate to both coarse tasks (such as cutting up a watermellon or large squash, or opening a wheel of cheese) and fine ones (chopping an onion, slicing up a bunch of veggies for stir-fry).

-- The 3.5-inch paring knife gets used for everything. Trimming and cleaning vegetables, mincing small amounts of herbs, creating garnishes, and other places where a chef's knife would be too big and unwieldy.
-- The 4.5-inch utility knife works as a paring knife for a larger hand, with a longer blade and a heavier handle. A smaller hand may prefer this to the boning knife for boning.
-- The 6-inch sandwich knife is appropriate for sandwiches (spreading filling and spreads, and cutting sandwich meats as well as the finished sandwich), but is also useful for carving chicken or cutting pies.
-- The 8-inch carving knife is for slicing roasts or turkey, but will also work well for cakes, including cheesecake. (Use the sandwich knife for carving chicken).

Wusthof knives are the best I've ever used, and I've tried them all. They are very well balanced, hold a great edge, and last forever if you care for them well.
To those that complain about the handles not being dishwasher safe I only have one thing to say - anyone that knows and appreciates quality cookware or cutlery would NEVER PUT IT IN THE DISHWASHER!!!
I always carefully hand-wash my knives, then immediately dry and store them. Caring for them like this has allowed them to last for many years, and surely many more to come. If you care for your knives as you should they will last a lifetime - these knives are fantastic!

Straight up, I do not own this exact set, but I do own some of the knives in the set. I was obliged to make a comment because of another review. I like the Wusthof line, and think that they are of impeccable quality. I also feel that there are knives of equal quality available at far less cost. Be that as it may, I wanted to pass along that my ex wife and I bought a Cutco knife set early in our marriage (for a small fortune), and I cannot for the life of me understand how ANY reviewer could even begin to compare them to a proper forged knife set. For years, I thought that I had really bought the best, until I was introduced to a quality forged knife. There is no comparison in the overall handling and performance. To understand the benefit of a proper forged knife, you really have to try one. Don't get me wrong, the Cutco knives are among the finest of the stamped steel knives, and have a great warranty, but their price is based on the way they are marketed (like the old whole life insurance policies), and they are not in the same utility class as a forged knife set. Buy Wusthof or a more value oriented brand of forged knives and sleep well. Leave the stamped steel knives to the newlyweds.
