Product Description

The Classic cutlery line bears all the traits that Wüsthof knives are known for: impeccable construction, incredible sharpness, and long-lasting durability. Each Classic knife is precision-forged--blade, bolster, and tang--from a single piece of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel. The blade is tested by lasers and honed by hand, with computer-controlled front-to-back tapering, grinding, and polishing. A visible full tang--the blade's shaft runs the entire length of the handle--ensures excellent balance and strength. Classic handles are molded from a durable black synthetic called Hostaform-C with traditional triple riveting. The knives promise a lifetime of hard-working companionship in the kitchen. This Wüsthof Classic 8 piece block set is a great way to jumpstart your cutlery collection or begin overhauling your old set of knives. Designed to meet the most popular cutting demands, the set includes an 8" Cooks knife for chopping, and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife for coring, trimming, and peeling, 5" Boning knife. This sets also includes a 8" bread knife, 8" carving knife, kitchen shears. Wusthof also includes a 9-inch sharpening steel and an attractive oak block with a total of 17 slots so you can add specialty knives or your old favorites. Classic knives, though safe in the dishwasher, should be washed by hand for best results.

This hard-to-find set is ideal for people who eat dead animals and don't want to spend money on utility, sandwich, tomato, or steak knives (see below). Just the essentials are here, including a carving knife for roasts and a boning knife for dismembering hapless chickens, or for removing the back from a turkey, so that you can cook the Thanksgiving bird in under an hour (google Mark Bittman 45 minute turkey). A santoku knife makes a useful but not absolutely necessary addition.

Adherents to vegetarianism and related cults would do better with a similar set that includes utility and santuko knives instead of the carving and boning knives (search Amazon for Wusthof 8408).

It's a pleasure to use real knives after years of struggling with cheap blades. The carving knife is a revelation, as is the bread knife--both cut thin slices with no effort.

After nine months of low to moderate use the knives have stayed sharp and haven't developed any rust. They are supposedly dishwasher safe, but everyone says to hand wash and dry anyway.

Advantages of Wusthof Classic over Wusthof Gourmet and Wusthof Silverpoint:

- Steel bolsters/finger guards
- Full length tangs on all knives
- Nicer handles
- Higher quality blades (forged instead of stamped) that have good heft, balance, and stiffness.
(See blog dot metrokitchen dot com/forged-stamped-knives/ for a good discussion of forged vs. stamped blades.)

Purchased 10/2013 for $299.95. I would hesitate if I had to pay the current price ($399.95). Prices bounce up and down. Wait for a better deal if you can.

All the pieces of cutlery any well appointed kitchen should need. If you are a novice or an accomplished chef you will enjoy the craftsmanship of these German made Wusthof Classic knives. I don't know why I waited so many years to get these. Fully forged, not stamped and very high quality. I am sure they will last a lifetime.
