Product Description

A great gift idea for newlyweds or anyone setting up a first-time kitchen, this Gourmet 12-piece knife set by Wusthof provides a comprehensive collection of everyday essentials. The set includes a 2-1/2-inch parer, a 3-inch parer, a 4-1/2-inch utility, an 8-inch bread knife, an 8-inch cook's knife, four steak knives, a 9-inch honing steel, kitchen shears, and a 13-slot storage block to keep all the pieces neatly organized and within reach. Overall, the knife set measures approximately 10 by 5 by 15 inches.

As part of Wusthof's Gourmet collection, each knife features a special blend of high-carbon German stainless steel throughout the whole length of the knife for exceptional strength and balance. Wusthof 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. Another thoughtful detail includes the handles, which come riveted and ergonomically designed for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof knives carry a limited lifetime warranty and should be hand washed for best results.

Gourmet Cutlery Series

In the culinary world variety and preparing something outstanding is the key to success. Due to this, Wusthof offers more than 350 different kinds of knives to be able to provide the perfect knife for everyone. No matter which kind of blade and handle shape you are thinking of--Wusthof has the right knife for all your needs.

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.

Manufacturing
Laser technology cuts steel into precise shapes. View larger.

Modern Manufacturing

With modern manufacturing techniques, Wusthof is using laser cutting to craft its stamped knives. Laser cutting is a technology that uses a laser to cut steel in precise shapes. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser, by computer, at the steel being cut. The material then burns away, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish.

The remaining processes are similar to the manufacturing of forged knives.

Automated steps ensure precise results.

Perfectly sharpened blade. View larger.

Stamped knives are usually thinner, lighter and lack a little of the balance of forged knives; therefore, requiring a firmer grip and more pressure when chopping and mincing. They are usually priced lower than forged cutlery, because the process can be performed at incredible speeds and reduced labor and material costs. Today, high-quality stamped knives deliver excellent cutting and ability and light-weight maneuverability favored by some cooks.

Precisely cut with the latest state-of-the-art laser technology
  • A wide assortment offers you knives for all purposes
  • For professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts
  • Manufactured from one piece of steel (Chrom Molybdenum Vanadium)
  • Extraordinary sharpness is easy to maintain
  • Comfortable synthetic full-tang handle for all blades longer than 12 cm
  • Made in Solingen, Germany
  • Limited lifetime warranty

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.

Buyer beware. the Gourmet line deceptively looks like the Classic line from the picture, but it's far inferior. Much lighter and thinner. The blade only partially goes through the handle so the handle is part of the structure of the knife not just a grip. And it's plastic and unlikely to last like the Classic. You might have thought you were getting deal, buying the set at what seemed half the price. But at best they are worth half the price and probably not even that

Having owned 4 sets of Wusthof knives in my life, I am about 99% sure that these are fakes. They are rusting after being used less than two weeks. They are also flimsy and not built like Wusthof knives are typically built. They will not balance in your hand. The labels looked like they were printed on an inkjet printer. I will be returning these ASAP for a FULL refund.

These knives have been fantastic. I wish they were slightly heavier to the feel, but they are great quality. They don't feel cheap at all. I have medium sized hands and they're perfect for me.

The edge was very sharp straight out of the box.

We bought this set after a great deal of shopping and examination. The block is well balanced and looks great, and the knives hold a good edge. I recommend them.

It's unbelievable to me that two of the steak knives would rust after washing them three times. I bought these knives to replace Henkels that I've had for nearly 10 years, which have never rusted.

I sent them back to Amazon and was refunded my money.

The knives work great, it warrents mentioning that the Wusthof red triton symbol on the handle of the knives is a mere sticker. The blades themselves had the wusthof text on them.

I'm very disappointed with the handles of these knives. Within a somewhat short time after purchasing these, one of the handles broke and fell off one of the knives. Within a short time after that, another one cracked and soon broke and fell off. I'm not sure what the material is that is used by Wusthof, but it seems very brittle. I've had much cheaper knives that have never had issues with handles breaking.

If I was buying another set of knives, I think I'd go with another brand.
