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.
What's in the Box
2-1/2-inch parer, 3-inch parer, 4-1/2-inch utility, 8-inch bread knife, 8-inch cook's knife, 4 steak knives, a 9-inch honing steel, kitchen shears, and a 13-slot storage block.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you value your tools, we recommend washing your knives with warm, soapy water after each use. Rinse carefully and dry with a towel.
For proper storage we recommend the following options:
Since 1814, knives bearing the Wusthof name and the Trident logo have been crafted in the world's "Cutlery Capital" of Solingen, Germany. Today, in a state-of-the-art facility, that tradition of quality is ensured as old-world craftsmanship meets twenty first century production methods.
In addition to knives, Wusthof offers an assortment of cutting boards, knife blocks, kitchen tools, and scissors bearing the famous Trident logo--a symbol of form, function, and uncompromising quality.
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.
Lightweight and flimsy compared to other Wusthof sets I have owned, leading me to believe that these may be fake / imitation Wusthof knives. Buyer beware.Published 11 days ago by A. Mason
BE WARNED: The return policy is terrible!!! My $235 Wusthof Santoku broke (chip in the center blade) and I sent it back to Wusthof hoping they would send me another replacement... Read morePublished 14 days ago by Allison Reiner

Good knives, but not as good as the classic set. Weight is not balanced as well as classic and handle construction is cheaper. Read morePublished 1 month ago by TR
