The block we received looks just fine. No splits, unfinished sides, or other flaws. It is quite compact, with a small footprint on the counter. The slots in the holder are all uniform sizes, and not fitted to the various knives or shears. I don't know if that will harm the knives in any way. I don't plan to jostle them and would be careful in pulling them out and replacing them in any event.
The largest knife is somewhat on the small side for a chef's knife, with hollowed out grooves on the side. These are supposed to keep food from sticking to the blade, a problem we have had in the past with other knives. I'm not entirely sure the design of this knife completely eliminates the problem, but it does seem to help somewhat.
The utility knife is a nice step up or down from the other two knives. It comes in handy for slicing vegetables.
The paring knife is small and sharp. The shears operate smoothly and come apart for easy cleaning, which is important to me. I have an older pair of similar shears that do not come apart, and keeping them clean is much more work.
The set is light in weight, compared to some of our other, admittedly low end knives. This is not a problem for us. The knives feel balanced and comfortable in my hand. I might add that my husband, who has larger and somewhat arthritic hands, likes all these knives very much.Read more ›
Wusthof makes knives perfect for those of us that consider ourselves to be a little more talented in the kitchen than your average housewife. Their knives are not super high end, but they are certainly a major notch above many other brands at traditionally reasonable prices.
The cost of this set is about equal to that of what you would pay individually for the 6" Cook's Knife and the two different sized paring knives. Buying the set is like getting a bonus gift of shears plus a block into which all four utensils fit. Or so I thought..
My older Wusthof's Cook's Knife is a few years old. Compared to the one in this set, it is heavier and longer by an inch. No big deal there, I'm just contrasting the difference before stating I found the new knife to be of equal quality to my old. My issues are with the paring knives and the wood block.
The block that holds the set is pitted and looks unfinished on the left side. It is as if an entire step in the sanding process was missed. If that was all, I could just turn the set to face that one side to the wall. However, the face of the block is split along the grain with an especially big gap running from the top to the area between the Cook's Knife and the first paring knife.
What looked to be an attractive holder on-line is ugly and cheap looking in person. Even if it had been finished correctly and did not have the split in front, it would still not look worthy of the Wusthof label for no other reason than the mismatched knife holes.Read more ›
Wüsthof is a premier cutlery company located in Solingen, Germany, and they make several different lines of knives, all of which are forged, except for those in the "Gourmet" line, which are stamped. It seems a bit counter-intuitive to call the budget products "Gourmet", because if you really are going to do a lot of cooking and want the best quality and longest lasting, you will appreciate or even demand the classic knives. But if they are out of your budget, you can still get some quality German knives with this set. They would be a good introductory set, and probably fine for many people who aren't "Gourmet" chefs, lol. I would guess that they are better than the knives most people have in their kitchen. The technology for making stamped knives has come a long way, and of course, the German Wüsthof company will give you the best that is available within that technology.
Qualities particular to this set, besides the much lower price tag include: they are lighter, they come to a very sharp point, and the blades are extremely sharp. This type of metal is extremely hard. As to the individual knives, the six inch chef's knife has hollow scallops along each side of the blade, which the Classic does not. These are supposed to reduce drag during cutting. The blades seem relatively more flexible.Read more ›

These are only marginally better than your basic cheapo Walmart set. Flimsy stamped out blades. Any half decent kitchen knife will be forged, not stamped. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Matt
