From the Manufacturer

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.

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.


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.

Beware!! Image is deceitful: the design of the knives that is being featured online is much more simple and poorer quality (no curved handle or red label) than the photo that's being used to promote the product! I instantly returned it: actual product and product in the photo are not the same!!

I have a Wusthof Classic that's been sharpened so many times (a decade of daily use), it's come time to replace it. Saw this deal, saw the Classic line in the pictures and ordered.
What was pictured is NOT what was received!
Don't be fooled. This is not the Classic set, it's the cheap stamped out set, and because of it, this isn't a deal. A stamped knife is a stamped knife. It's cheap, light, can't hold an edge and while not really bad, is not something you want to use every day for years and years.

It's a disgrace for Amazon to picture a different product in anothers product description, but it's my fault for trusting them with it and not simply reading reviews and making sure I'm getting what I think I'm getting.

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 Classic line is the more conservative counterpart to the Grand Prix line. The only difference, however, is the handle style. I personally prefer the Grand Prix, but this is an issue of personal preference. The balance and grip of these knives are as close to perfect as I have found. For those wondering what benefits a higher priced knife provides, one benefit is that the blade (or tang) is one piece all the way through the handle. This makes the blade much stronger, and less likely to snap.
This set includes an 8 inch chef's knife, a 3 ½ inch paring knife, a 6 inch sandwich knife, 7 inch bread, 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 line, 5, 6, 8 and 10 inch. For most home cooks, I think the 8 inch knife is the best choice. The 5 and 6 inch are 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.
I have found very few uses for the 6 inch sandwich knife.

This is the Gourmet set of Wusthof which is a lower quality set from the Classic. If that is what you want, that's great (they're still decent quality knives for half the price). Read below - shamelessly ripped from another website [...]

Wusthof Classic:

The best selling line in Wusthof's stable of knives is the Classic which features a 3 rivet handle design. These knives are high quality and Wusthof has done very well over the years with it. If it ain't broke don't fix it should be the modo for this line since there have been no changes to it in decades. These are great knives but and are indeed classic in blade design and traditional handle fit and feel. The balance of the knife is good in the 8" Chef Knife that we tested. We wish they would sharpen these knives without a bevel and many professionals will have the bevel removed by a sharpening service as soon as they purchase them. Overall a solid choice but we do prefer the updated blade design of the Le Cordon Bleu as well as the updated handle design of the Culinar. We score this line 8.0

Wusthof Gourmet:

This is their only stamped line. Stamped knives differ from Forged knives in that the blades are literally stamped from a thin sheet of steel. They tend to be significantly less money than the forged knives and are ½ the weight. For those on a budget these knives perform reasonably well but not as good as those above. For this reason we do not recommend these knives. Score 6

Forged vs. Stamped [...]
Forged Knife:

"Forged knives are hand made through a process of extreme heat and hand molding. Each forged knife is carefully and hand crafted with extreme detail. The tang of the knife merges into the handle and is typically secured by three rivets.

I bought these knives after reading many reviews and comparing these knives to other brands. UPS delivered the knives and I opened the set and in an instant knew I would return the set ASAP. These knives have plastic handles that are lightweight and feel cheap. The blades seemed flimsy and were thin. I expected more and will now go to a store to feel the knives in my hand before another purchase.

***EDIT-- This review was written in 2004 for the Wustof CLASSIC knife set, NOT THE GOURMET. The Classic set is about 4-5 times the cost of the Gourmet set. The Gourmet is the economy/entry level set from Wustof. Amazon has since linked this review to the Gourmet set as well. Please keep that in mind.***

I recently purchased the Wustof Classic set after much research between the various Wustof and Henkel models. In general, the Wustof's had a much nicer feel and balance to them. I also prefered the blade weight and thickness of the Wustof. I personally prefer the Classic over the Grand Prix, but it is 100% personal preference as the only real difference is the handles.

I compared the Wustof's to the Henkel's at one of the knife stores in the mall. Comparing them side-by-side was very enlightening and made my mind up that I will only buy the Wustof's from now on. I highly recomend going to one of the mall knife shops and playing with them, most have a wide selection of all of the high quality knives. For this kind of money it is the only wise way to make your decision. I would recomend purchasing from Amazon.com though, the knife stores I went to were about 25% more expensive unless they had a "sale" on a specific item, in which case it was the same price as Amazon.com.

These are one of the best knives you can get, although they are no better than the other models and makes. All knives at this level are top quality, please base your decision on preference and try them out first.
