Product Description

Amazon.com

The Gourmet cutlery line from Wüsthof offers excellent workmanship without top-of-the-line expense. Using high-carbon, stain-resistant steel, Wüsthof laser cuts and laser tests each blade for perfect uniformity and a super sharp edge. The durable Gourmet synthetic handles feature a seamless, hygienic fit and full-tang construction for maximum strength. They are reinforced with triple rivets on all blades over 4-1/2 inches. Designed for years of reliable use and easy sharpening, these knives are a great cutlery solution for the mid-range budget.

This Gourmet Japanese cook’s knife, also known as a santoku knife, features a straight-edge blade for straight-down slicing and precision chopping. Rows of alternating hollows in the blade create tiny air pockets, so the knife slides without sticking and even paper-thin slices fall away. The 3-inch parer comes in handy for cleaning prawns, trimming ginger, or creating garnishes. Like other Wüsthof cutlery, this set is safe in the dishwasher, but should be washed by hand for best results. --Emily Bedard

By JB on August 22, 2013
I bought just the Santoku knife about 10 years ago now. I have a culinary degree and worked in restaurants all across the US including the Las Vegas Strip and this knife has been with me the entire time. The important things you should know about this knife is that it has a full tang, which means the blade goes through the handle and is one piece.

It is also stamped, not forged. Stamped knives are made by taking a piece of metal and "stamping" out the shape of the blade. A forged knife is one where they heat/fold the steel multiple times for strength. I also own a forged Santoku that was double the price, but only use it for butchering. The reason being a stamped blade is much thinner than a forged blade due to how it is manufactured. As a result, a forged blade is better for things such as quartering a chicken.

As a result, I used this stamped blade 90% of the time. The blade is thinner than a forged knife and I can cut perfect tomato slices and other delicate cutting with this that I wouldn't even attempt with my forged blade due to its wider blade. My Wusthof Gourmet has been through hell and back, but I have never sharpened--ever. I've had it for 10+ years and if you run it across a steel to hone the blade before you use it (a steel only hones the blade and does not sharpen--I'm sure you can find YouTube videos on it). The only downside to this knife I've seen so far is that after about 5 years of heavy use the handle cracked and the red Wusthof sticker has come off. The plastic handle has cracked, but thanks to the full tang construction there is no difference in performance due to the crack, so it is mainly aesthetic.

At the end of the day, I can't say enough good things about this knife. I paid 65 for just the Santoku over 10 years ago so 70 for the set with free shipping is a deal.

We (husband and sons) do love this knife. It has become a go to Holiday gift. This one to my sister. Every year Wusthof offers them on sale which coincides with gift giving. Love the size, weight, feel of this knife. Everyone should own one ...Not all knives are made equally...I've got an extensive selection of Wusthof knives...but the Santoku really is my go to knife. That said, everyone close enough to me that I would spend this much on, has received this knife from me for Christmas gift. I have no opinion of the paring knife.

This are a great low end knife. They are sharp, well balanced, and well designed.

However they are the 'cheap series' and do not hold a point like the more expensive knives.

Wustof did it again with this two piece set. All the sliced food just slides off the knife and is a pleasure to use with the ergonomic shape of the handle. Even with wet hands I have the confidence to rip through some carrots. Really great set. If you want the best, buy the best. This is a true "Chef's Caliber" set. I know one who uses them whole line of knifes.

Another quality product from Wusthof. A great slicer for onions, and the paring knife is like a razor. They seem to hold a good edge so far.

The Wusthof Asian knife set arrived promptly and met all of my expectations. High quality workmanship, sharp blades and versatile. They fit in quite nicely with our other Wusthof Classic and Wusthof Gourmet knives.
