Product Description

A thoughtful gift idea for newlyweds or anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this high-quality four-piece steak-knife set makes it easy to smoothly slice through juicy steak hot off the grill. Its hollow-ground blade edge cuts with less friction and prevents food from sticking, allowing slices to fall away effortlessly. All four knives come in a handy storage box with indents that keep them securely in place.

Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof Classic knives feature a special blend of high-carbon German stainless steel throughout the whole length of the blade for exceptional strength and balance. The knives also provide a sharp, precisely tempered blade for safe, efficient use. Laser tested for accuracy, the unique, compound angle of the blade tapers from the spine of the knife to the edge to create a sturdy, yet extremely sharp cutting surface. The blade also tapers from the bolster to the tip for added strength and flexibility. Another thoughtful detail includes the handles. The knives come equipped with triple-riveted, ergonomic handles for a secure, comfortable grip. The knives should be washed by hand with a mild cleanser and dried thoroughly. The four-piece steak-knife set measures 9 by 6 by 1 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Details of a Forged Wusthof Knife

PEtec--Precision-Edge Technology

New Wusthof technology offers superior sharpness!

The latest cutting performance tests carried out by the FGW (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e.V., a German research association for tools and materials based in Remscheid) confirm that Wusthof forged knives offer the best quality when compared to other well-known, single-layer brands.


The extensive tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 8442-5. Wusthof knives have a considerably higher ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) and maintain this performance for an extremely long time (TCC = Total Card Cut).

When compared with the winners in the "cook's knife" category awarded by German consumer organization "Stiftung Warentest" in its 1st edition of 2008, forged Wusthof knives featuring the new PEtec technology produce a result which is about 20% higher.

The Technology:

  • Blades are measured by a laser before sharpening
  • Computer programs calculate precise sharpening angle for each blade
  • Knives are then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots
  • Knives are given a final polish using a special disc

The Benefits:

  • Extremely high initial cutting performance
  • Exceptionally long edge retention / long service life of blade
  • Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade
  • Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality

PEtec from Wusthof--superior sharpness for professional and home cooks!

How Wusthof Knives are Made

Wusthof knives are known for their outstanding sharpness. By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so).

The evolution of a precision forged knife

Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel.

Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps.

1. Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel
2. Precision forged piece
3. Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell
4. Polished
5. Scales of handles and rivets
6. The Wusthof Cook's knife

Types of Blades

The Right Blade for Every Purpose

The edge is the business end of a knife. It is skillfully honed by hand and incredibly sharp. For different cutting tasks different blade shapes and edges are recommended.

The Differences:

Straight-edge blade: The straight edge allows a smooth and clean cut. When carving no fibres are torn out of the meat. This edge can be used for firm and soft food like meat, vegetables and fruit.

Serrated-edge blade: The wavy or serrated edge allows an easy cut through crusty food like a traditional roast and crispy bread.

Hollow-edge blade: When cutting an air pocket is created between the hollow edge and the slice. This prevents the food from sticking to the blade and allows for finer slices.

Cleaning & Storage

Proper care for long-lasting cooking enjoyment

If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.


For proper storage we recommend the following options:

  • Knife blocks in a variety of shapes, colors and configurations. The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor.
  • Magnet Bars in wood, synthetic material or aluminum. Two extra strong magnet segments provide a safe, easily visible and space-saving storage option.
  • Cook's cases in rolls and briefcase styles. This is the ideal method for professionals to store and transport their tools safely.

If you are looking for a great set of quality steak knives, these knives are "the bomb" - I highly recommend them. The knife feels great in your hand and slices through meat like it's butter, requiring very little effort. The knives are quality made, balanced and sharpened to perfection. The hollow ground adds just enough of a countered surface that the meat slides off of the knife and doesn't stick while slicing.

To keep them in great shape and lasting a lifetime, always wash by hand (watch out they are sharp!) and never, ever put them in the dishwasher.

For home, these are way nicer than you'll find in most high end restaurants. They are very well finished, balanced, and cut through steaks with precision. If you've been to Outback Steakhouse, they are about 1/2 of the size and weight of their restaurant steak knives.

Look at the "Pro Series" of Wusthof knives for possibly the best deal in a matching, well-balanced set of cast knives. They've been the "house knives" in many restaurants and recently made available to home consumers. The handles are rubberized with safety grips. I bought nine different Pro Series knives with the classic steak knives and a 35-slot cherry Wusthof wood block. I couldn't be more pleased with the affordable combined quality. The 10 inch Wusthof ceramic "steels" work best for fine sharpening cast blades by using a 20 degree or less angle. That angle is about half or less of this large letter "V". It simply takes longer to sharpen forged blades.

The main difference in forged and cast is how long they hold an edge. It only takes 5-6 swipes on both sides to renew the factory edge to cast blades with the ceramic "steel". I figured if busy restaurant chefs can stop for a moment for a few sharpening swipes, I could live with it at home, and much better afford the bigger Wusthof set of the exact knives I preferred. The ceramic sharpener also looks and sounds cool in a home kitchen environment to guests. These are a huge improvement over most of my older Chicago Cutlery set that found a new home in my workshop. The other Chicago Cultery knives I kept in the kitchen fit very well into the Wusthof block.

After lots of research and buying a set of Wsthof knives that came with their lower end Gourmet Steak Knives, I feel as though these Steak Knives are the best you can get, both very sharp and cuts through steak like butter, the hollow ground is nice since the steak falls off the knife rather than sticking to it.
