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, 4.5" Utility knife for slicing and peeling. This sets also includes a 8" bread knife, 6" sandwich 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.

Additionally, these knives sharpen easily and maintain their sharpness for many uses.

And definitely worth the investment over the cheaper Gourmet set.

I'm no professional chef, but I've been doing a lot of cooking and learning about cooking the last few years. I started out with some Farberware knives. Those were just a waste of money. They inset the blade into the plastic handle and several times when I was cutting through vegetables the blade broke out of the handle and came flying up back at me. That's why you need a full tang, meaning the blade runs the entire length of the handle. The Farberware knives were not much more than sharpened sheet metal stuck in cheap plastic. I then moved up to a few Chicago Cutlery knives. They are no longer made in Chicago. And while they do cut good, they are still made out of a thick stamped out and sharpented sheet metal. Then I got a Caphalon set. That's when I finally got a good set. When you get a good balanced knife you'll know it. It feels like you could just chuck them across the room like a knife thrower. The Caphalon's have a great ergonomic handle are made of good steel and are well balanced. They are no sheet metal knife. I also like how they label the end of the knives so they are easy to find. The Caphalon's have the most ergonomic handle of any knife I've tried. They just conform to your hand. My complaint with them would be that I don't like the harsh cerrations on the steak knives. My drying towel catches up in them everytime I go to clean them. The Wusthof steak knives don't have the cerrations, making them easier to clean and making a nicer cut through the meat. I also think the Wusthof knives have two other advantages. The steel seems slightly better. And they are lighter. The blades are a little thinner than the Caphalon knives but that works to their advantage allowing for a lighter knife and for bending on the only the knives that need to bend a little.Read more ›

I got this as a wedding gift, and I was amazed at how much of a difference it makes in the kitchen! Good knives make cooking such an enjoyable experience, and Wusthof is well-known to be one of the best out there. The 8-piece set is perfect for people who want to start with a good set and build up on it. Of course I use the chef's knife the most, but I also use the bread knife and paring knife a lot too. I think a santoku knife would be a nice addition to this set, and perhaps steak knives would be wonderful to fill in the 6 slots on the bottom of the block, but in terms of practicality, I never feel like I need more than what I already have (but this is coming from a person who is a beginner in the kitchen). I have been using my knives for about 1 1/2 years now, and the knives are still as sharp as they were when we first bought it. I'm sure we will have to sharpen them eventually, but with good care I expect these to last a very long time.

The knife block itself has room for many other knives, and 6 steak knives. The knives themselves are extremely well made. The black handles with metal rivets are definitely a classic/elegant look, and the knives are incredibly sharp. Heavy and sturdy, these knives also hold their edge very well. My favorite knife is the 6" utility knife, because it's not too big, it can be used by men and woman alike (the 8" chef's knife may be a bit big for smaller women), and it's thin enough to get into smaller areas. The smaller 2 knives are greater for vegetable prep.
Definitely don't put these in the dishwasher. And make sure if you buy steakknives, to put them in EDGE UP... as the edge will wear down if you keep sliding the edge along the wood by putting them in edge down.
I already threw all my other knives out. Very happy!

Verified Purchase
Bought a set of these very knives 25 years ago and have never been disappointed. At that time, we had a problem with one knife, which was immediately replaced at no charge. Three years ago we bought a set of Chicago Cutlery knives as a gift for our daughter. It quickly became apparent that they were mediocre knives that quickly dulled and performed poorly. They were an embarrasment for us. We bought this set as a replacement. The contrast is remarkable. These are truly classic, top quality, high performing knives.

I'm so glad I bought these knives. I've been wanting a nice set of knives for a while now and did quite a bit of research prior. I've been 'making do' with a cheap set of knives from Wallyworld, and I think that even the top parts of these Wusthof blades are sharper than my old knives. If you want sharp knives, let me show you all the nicks and cuts on my hands from these knives over the past few weeks. I'm not a sloppy cook; just an efficient one, and I have to be more cautious now because these knives really are SHARP. They are also forged instead of stamped, which is a higher quality knife. Don't confuse these with the Gourmet line which is stamped. I imaging the Gourmet line is suitable for a novice cook, but the Classic line is for those who want a stronger knife that will hold its edge much longer. Even the scissors slice through things like nothing I've seen before. This set has pretty much all the knives that I'd personally need... but I do wish it had any sized Santoku. One bit of negativity is that I don't care for all the extra slots in the over-sized knife block. I think it's trying to persuade the consumer to purchase more knives. Overall, I'm definitely pleased and recommend these Wusthof knives.
