Product Description

A great gift idea for any cooking enthusiast, this two-piece Asian knife set consists of a 7-inch hollowed-edge Santoku knife and a 3-inch paring knife. Use the Santoku for a wide variety of cutting chores, from mincing and chopping to slicing and dicing. The knife's hollow-edge blade provides a row of oval-shaped grooves along its cutting edge, which increases efficiency, helping to prevent food from sticking. By trapping air during the cutting process, food is less likely to adhere and more likely to fall to the side. For enhanced convenience, its large blade surface can also be used to scoop and carry minced or cubed ingredients to waiting pans or bowls. The compact size, pointed tip, and straight, ultra-fine edge of the paring knife makes it the ideal tool for trimming fruits and vegetables, deveining peppers, and other handheld tasks. Overall, the cook's knife measures approximately 12 by 2 by 1/2 inches, and the paring knife measures approximately 7 by 1 by 1/2 inches.

As part of the Wusthof Grand Prix II collection, each knife's blade, bolster, and tang come precision-forged from a single piece of specially tempered high-carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength and balance. Wusthof knives offer 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 hygienically seamless, full-tang, synthetic handles, which are ergonomically designed for a secure, comfortable grip. Made in Solingen Germany, "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Wusthof knives carry a lifetime warranty and should be hand washed for best results.

PEtec--Precision-Edge Technology

New Wusthof technology offers superior sharpness!

The latest cutting performance tests carried out by the FGW (Forschungsgemeinschaft Werkzeuge und Werkstoffe e.V., a German research association for tools and materials based in Remscheid) confirm that Wusthof forged knives offer the best quality when compared to other well-known, single-layer brands.

PEtec

The extensive tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 8442-5. Wusthof knives have a considerably higher ICP (Initial Cutting Performance) and maintain this performance for an extremely long time (TCC = Total Card Cut).

When compared with the winners in the "cook's knife" category awarded by German consumer organization "Stiftung Warentest" in its 1st edition of 2008, forged Wusthof knives featuring the new PEtec technology produce a result which is about 20% higher.

The Technology:

  • Blades are measured by a laser before sharpening
  • Computer programs calculate precise sharpening angle for each blade
  • Knives are then sharpened on a whetstone using precision robots
  • Knives are given a final polish using a special disc

The Benefits:

  • Extremely high initial cutting performance
  • Exceptionally long edge retention / long service life of blade
  • Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade
  • Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality

PEtec from Wusthof--superior sharpness for professional and home cooks!

How Wusthof Knives are Made

Wusthof knives are known for their outstanding sharpness. By honing and sharpening the knives yourself you can maintain this feeling for a lifetime of use (see "Honing and Sharpening" section below for detailed guidelines on how to do so).

Evolution
The evolution of a precision forged knife

Over 40 different manufacturing steps are needed to produce a forged Wusthof knife from one solid piece of steel.

Here you will find a detailed explanation of some of the most important production steps.

1. Sheet bar of high-carbon no-stain steel
2. Precision forged piece
3. Tempered to 58-degree Rockwell
4. Polished
5. Scales of handles and rivets
6. The Wusthof Cook's knife

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.

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.

I'm a young college student who works at a restaurant as a waiter. Like many young people, I one day got a fleeting aspiration that would probably go away within a couple of weeks. I wanted to be an awesome cook, so the first thing I did was ask the chef at my restaurant what tools I needed to start. He told me a good kitchen knife is THE essential tool of the chef. He recommended I go to Williams Sonoma and try out every knife possible but warned me that chef knives cost close to $100 dollars each. Whoa! He also said that Santoku blades are very popular these days because they're extremely versatile and feel good in your hands (something about balance).

Nonetheless, I went to Williams-Sonoma the next day and tried out the Henkels, Wustof Classic, Wustof Grand Prix, Wustof Grand Prix 2, Globals, and Shuns. I ultimately chose the Wustof Grand Prix 2 because of the perfect balance in the knife. It felt perfect. The handle was much grippier than the others, extremely light, but not as thin as the Globals (which I thought might lead to a blister), or with the unnatural offset handle of the Shun (Left handers actually feel that it works perfectly - I'm a righty like the majority of people). I'm extremely paranoid of cutting myself ever since my mom cut herself pretty bad and after handling that particular knife, I was confident I would never cut myself. I eventually purchased it on Amazon with in an asian knife set (paring knife + santoku).

When I finally used it for the first time, I seriously could not believe how quickly I could cut. I always thought it was skill that the chefs at my workplace would use to dice things, slice meats, or chop veggies. Was I ever wrong! Any idiot using a knife this sharp and this balanced could cut like a master.

This set is just 20 dollars more for the pairing knife, than the one without. You can not buy a Wusthof knife for 20 dollars. I watched Rachael Ray for too long on the Food Channel cutting easily at her veggies. These knives are some of the best quality knives you can buy. The specially made blade does enable a quick, accurate cut.

The grip and the weight of these knives give them an excellent balance that simply is impossible to be beat. These two knives have quickly become my most used knives for everyday. I would highly recommend these knives if you are looking to start or add to your knive collection.
