Wusthof Gourmet knives are Laser Cut. This intricate manufacturing process is superior to other "cookie cutter" methods as it is more precise and leaves the knives with less distortion. The Gourmet knives use the same steel that is used in our other more expensive knives. 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 can be maintained in your home kitchen with out the need to be sent away for maintenance. Located in "The Cutlery Capital of the World", Solingen Germany, the Wusthof factory history goes back as far as 1814 when the company was listed with the Duchy of Berg. To this day, the company remains family owned. Each step is performed to exacting standards by skilled German workers aided by the most modern, computer guided equipment. 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,
Top Customer Reviews
I was hesitant to buy the Gourmet set based on reviews here on Amazon and elsewhere. The Gourmet knives are stamped, not forged like the Classics. There are very minor design differences that make the Gourmets look slightly different than the Classics. Otherwise, these knives are exactly like Classics. First, the stickers. The Wustof emblem is a sticker on the handle. The emblem is a sticker on the Classics, too, so if the sticker really bothers you that much, go with a different knife manufacturer. My stickers have not faded, worn, or shown any sign of coming off under heavy usage in one year. Take that as you will. Second, rusting. These are carbon steel knives, people. Steel rusts if you let water sit on it. My knives have not rusted in the least. I hand wash them, wipe them off in one swipe with a paper towel, and air dry after use. Not a spot of rust. If you want to stick these in the dishwasher, or want to let them soak in water, you're going to get rust. Take care of these knives and they're fine.
I give these knives five stars. Unless you really feel you need forged, ground carbon steel Classics for hundreds more, buy these Gourmets.
2016 UPDATE: I've had these for six years. The stickers are faded, but none have come off. There isn't a spot of rust on any of the knives. The blades still hold their edge. These continue to be the best set of knives I've ever owned, and stamped is just as good as the much more expensive forged in terms of sharpness and longevity.
they are the "student grade" version of the Wusthof knife that I thought I was buying. the handles are light plastic, the decal is a sticker that flakes off, the steel isnt very bright, and it's thin. so it'll cut, and keep a reasonable edge , but for 1/2 the price you can get the oxo knife set, which is a truly fantastic buy, and completely succeeds along all the mentioned points. the only reason I'm writing this, is that now that i've tried other knives I realize how duped I was.
until my oxo experience, I just assumed that "250$ is just not what I thought it was"
TLDR: Wusthof is cashing in on its brand recognition with an unjustifiably expensive product that doesnt live up to the quality product youre expecting.
What a joy to have decent knives to use in the kitchen. It helps to inspire me as a cook.
Great for the price and definitely do not put these in the dishwasher. I am proud to own, even if it is on the lower end of the spectrum, one of the finest knife collections currently on the market.
