Product Description

Product Description

The Wusthof Culinar 7 piece Block set comes with every every knife you will need to accomplish you cutting tasks. The set includes a 3.5" parer for peeling and paring, a 4.5" Utility is the perfect size for small slicing jobs, the 8" bread knife is the right size for those crusty loaves of bread. The 8" carver makes fine clean slices of meat as well as a 8" Cooks knife to be used for chopping, as well as dicing. The set comes with a 9 slot block to store your Culinar knives and a 9" honing steel to keep your knives sharp and ready to use. Wusthof Culinar knives are made in "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Solingen Germany. It is this balance of German technology and old world hand craftsmanship that is the secret of how each WÜSTHOF knife is created. Known the world-over for it’s unique and uncompromising quality, Wusthof uses a special blend of German steel through out the whole length of the knife. The ingredients of this steel are proudly etched on each blade. Wusthof not only uses the best materials to make a fine knife, but it is also crucial that each blade is precisely tempered. This tempering allows the knife to hold its edge for an extremely long time, yet still be able to be maintained in your home kitchen.

Elegant satin-finish handles sculpted from 18/10 stainless steel distinguish Culinar cutlery from Wüsthof's other cutlery lines. Otherwise Culinar 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.

The eight kitchen knives in this set provide a cook with a variety of cutting edges: an 8-inch cook's knife for rocking through chopping and mincing tasks; an 8-inch carving knife for meats and poultry; an 8-inch serrated bread knife for crusty loaves; a 6-inch sandwich knife and a 4-1/2-inch utility knife for myriad slicing and cutting needs; a 5-inch serrated salami/tomato knife with a pronged tip; a 5-inch boning knife; and a 3-1/2-inch paring knife. The set also includes a 9-inch sharpening steel for keeping knife edges aligned and a maple block to store everything on the counter within reach. Like all fine cutlery, the knives should be hand washed. --Fred Brack

The balance in the handle is excellent.

While the 8 inch isn't perfect for all uses, if you are only buying one size chef's knife (and most people only buy one), this is the one I would recommend.

I also feel like they were worth every penny and the Lifetime Warranty is awesome as well.

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 Culinar line is an all stainless steel look, rather than a black handle. Although the picture and some descriptions want you to think this is a single piece knife, be advised that the hand is a separate piece of stainless steel molded onto the tang. I personally prefer the handle of the Grand Prix and Classic, because the grip is surer for me, but this is, to some extent, a matter of personal preference. This series "looks" more professional to some (like a Viking stove).
This set includes an 8 inch chef's knife, a 3 ½ inch paring knife, a 6 inch sandwich knife, 8 inch bread, a 5 inch salami, a 2 ¾ inch trimming knife, a sharpening steel, and an oak block
The 8 inch chef's knife is a great knife. Wusthof offers four sizes of chef's knives in the Classic version, 5, 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. While the 8 inch isn't perfect for all uses, if you are only buying one size chef's knife (and most people only buy one), this is the one I would recommend.
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. There is really no notable difference in size for the vast majority of applications between the 3 ½ inch paring knife and the 4 ½ inch utility knife. I prefer the 4 ½ inch utility knife, but the 3 ½ inch paring knife will do the trick.

The first time I ever saw a Wusthof Culinar knife, I did not know what it was. I already had a collection of Wusthof Classic kitchen cutlery, and I was looking for a second, smaller, chef's knife to fit one of the few remaining slots in my knife block. Among the many small chef's knives in that well stocked knife store was an unusual looking knife with a stainless steel handle - a marked contrast to the traditional black handles that were on all the other knives in the store, Wusthof or otherwise.

Curious, I picked up the unusual knife. It didn't feel like simply picking up a knife, though. Rather, it was as if the hilt molded itself to my hand, becoming an integral part of me rather than a mere implement. Despite the different look - at the time a major negative to a traditionalist like myself - I found myself considering buying it, in preference even to a traditional knife that would match the rest of my set.

When asked, the salesman stated, incorrectly, that the knife did not have a full length tang - and so I did not buy the knife on that day. I found out later that the blade - of the same high carbon stainless steel as Wusthof's traditional blades - has a tang that reaches nearly to the pommel end of the 18/10 stainless steel handle, where it is secured by a rivet embossed with the Wusthof trident.

I did not buy that knife on that day, but when it came time for me to upgrade my steak knives, I chose Culinar knives over all alternatives, despite the greater expense. I also dreamed of upgrading my kitchen knives to the Culinar line - to a set like this one - though I doubted I could ever justify the cost.

So what is in this set? Two pieces are not knives: the block and the sharpening steel.

I loved the way these knives looked when I bought them last year. They are gorgeous...but a few months ago the "W" logos on the handles started falling off! The knives have only been hand washed. Apparently the logos are glued on, very cheap. Disappointed.

If you're serious about cooking good knives are probably the most important utensil. These knives are great. They cut through everything superbly. You have to be careful in handling them, though. I had a friend over who put one of them in a stack of other silverware where it got jostled around and the blade wasn't protected and the edge was noticeably dulled. It was easily sharpened with a few times through a standard knife sharpener (like any good blade) but you should take care to keep the knives in a block and not let the blade have too much contact with other metal. And of course use a wood or soft plastic cutting board.

The balance in the handle is excellent. It is really easy to use these knives because they do not put much strain on the wrist. The handles grip well. The knives clean easily. The only problem is that it will be hard for other knives to ever satisfy you after you've used these.

My biggest complaint was with the company which sells them through Amazon.com. Macy's shipped the order with a knife missing and over a month later I still do not have the knife from Macy's. Macy's has handled the problem incompetently, promising repeatedly to ship the knife "soon" and failing to do so. I may yet return the knives for that reason.
