Product Description

Size: 7 Piece

Perfect for newlyweds or anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this seven-piece cutlery set provides a variety of everyday essentials. The collection includes a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a 6-inch utility knife, an 8-inch bread knife, an 8-inch cook's knife, and a 9-inch honing steel to keep all the blades in good working order. It also comes with a pair of kitchen shears for clipping string, opening packages, or snipping herbs in the garden, as well as a 13-slot storage block to keep all the pieces neatly organized and within reach.

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 knife for exceptional strength and balance. The knives also provide sharp, precisely tempered blades 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 provide triple-riveted, ergonomic handles for a secure, comfortable grip. The knives should be washed by hand with a mild cleanser and dried thoroughly. The seven-piece set measures approximately 12 by 10 by 12 inches and carries a limited lifetime warranty.

Parts

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.

PEtec

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).

Evolution
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.

Wash

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.

About Wusthof

Today the family business is in its seventh generation of ownership, under the management of Harald Wusthof.

Wusthof knives are manufactured by a skilled team of 300 dedicated workers in two state-of-the-art facilities in Solingen, Germany.

Wusthof applies sustainable practices to their production facilities: Solar panels on the roof provide electricity to their manufacturing facility, they clean and reuse water to reduce water usage, and they reuse scrap materials rather than creating waste.

The finish is great and I can tell they will last a very long time with the type of handles that they have.

Slicing tomatoes is so smooth and easy - and hard veggies like carrots cut like butter.

I received these knives as a wedding gift two years ago, and I have probably used them every day since, and for some intense cooking projects. They have held up beautifully. I sharpen them every few months, and they are still cutting and chopping just as well as when I first used them.

Coming from low-end budget knives stuck in a drawer together, I noticed the difference immediately. Because of the full-length tang, the knives are perfectly steady in my hand while I chop; there is no "wobbling." Most importantly, the knives cut through anything I give them immediately and cleanly. The only time I had some difficulty was with an especially tough pumpkin, but after using some more muscle, the knife handled that well, too.

I like the seven-piece set because it seems to address all of my knife-needs (and I cook an elaborate dinner almost every evening). The only overlap is with the 4 1/2" utility knife and the paring knife. Since they are similar in size, they can be used for almost the same functions. I use the paring knife for cutting very small things, like strawberries, and the utility knife for cutting slightly longer things, like when I cut bell peppers into strips.

I love the bread knife and find that it also works really well for cutting tomatoes into thin slices.

And the crowning glory of this set is the 8" cook's knife, which makes a sound like drawing a sword from a sheath when you pull it from the block. I have been continually impressed with how the knife allows me to dice virtually anything with little trouble.

These knives are my favorite things in the kitchen, and they make cooking a thoroughly enjoyable process every time.

My wife and I bought these knives through another retailer and have loved them. They are sharp, sharp, sharp. Slicing tomatoes is so smooth and easy - and hard veggies like carrots cut like butter.

It's nice that this set includes the honing steel. With proper care these should last a very long time.

I will say - be careful! I cut up several kitchen towels without realizing it when I dried the knives after washing! I've also knicked my fingers once or twice - I'm used to our old dull and chipped knives. These are very sharp and can cut you without you even realizing it has happened.

I love to cook, not a chef by any means, but I can appreciate good utensils and 'kichen gear'. Since I bought this knife set, I look for an excuse to chop things...even onions, because the using a great knife is amazing. These knives have a really good and balanced weight to them that makes them very steady in your hand. It feels like you are holding a knife. You don't need to put a lot of weight into things, the knife will do the work. Totally reccommend this set.

We've had these knives for over a month now. I make knives and have purchased many knives for hunting and bush crafting. These are the sharpest knives I've ever come across. They are also holding their edge very well. The finish is great and I can tell they will last a very long time with the type of handles that they have. Our old Chicago Cutlery knife handles swelled after soaking in a sink or dishwasher (by the kids). These Wusthof knives won't do that with the phenolic or plastic handles that they have. We have used them extensively in the past month to cut meat, vegetables, and fruit, and we our very pleased with our purchase. The knife block has extra slots, I guess so that we can add a couple knives in the future or I can make knives to add to the set. The scissors is also excellent and extremely sharp. Don't hesitate to buy this knife set. It is of great quality.

This is he first time I invested in a really good set of knives. These fit your hand nicely and is very sharp. It is as if you are cutting through butter with these knives. Well worth the investment.

I had ordered these knives after extensive research and I will say that my research had payed off. The knives are used on a daily basis and have not shown any sight of wear and could cut through practically anything. I had a bit of an issue, with the block (I bought it based off the pic that showed 6 slots for steak knives and received one with only 4). The company I purchased from immediately fixed the problem, it's wonderful to see that there is still good customer service out there.

I have had this set for 15 years and I bought a second for my brother in-law for a wedding present. I would recommend them without question.
