If you love German kitchen knives for their superior steel and forging technique, then you’ve got to love Wusthof knives. Wusthof is one of the two most prestige brands for German steel blades (the other one being Henckels) and while their kitchen knives are generally expensive enough to cut a big hole in the pocket, it cannot be denied that the quality is also top of the range.
A basic set of Wusthof kitchen knives costs something above $300, nevertheless this is much cheaper than buying them one by one. The best kitchen knives set by Wusthof is from the Classic series, which are forged knives (not stamped).
The 8-piece Classic set is a good starting set of kitchen knives with a chef’s knife, a paring knife, a utility knife, a sandwich knife, kitchen shears and sharpening steel. The included oak block has extra slots so that you can add more knives to it later on. These knives are sturdy and well-balanced in the hand. The blades are made of quality high carbon stainless steel, the full tang then bolstered and riveted to achieve a classic look.
These Wusthof kitchen knives are really sharp as expected from quality knives, and they also hold an edge for a long time. It won’t be another year before you need to resharpen them. Another nice thing is the kitchen shears which come apart for easier cleaning. That way no water or food remnants will stick in the joints and make it rust.
f you consider yourself a sophisticated yet practical person, then I’m sure you’ll like the Wusthof Gourmet 8-Piece Knife Set with Block. It’s a knife set that oozes sophistication and perfect for those days when you want to prepare that delectable gourmet dish.
