Included in this set are the following pieces:
The Kitchen Shears (5558-2) provide near-endless utility in the kitchen, featuring precision-forged blades and ergonomic polymer handles. These shears serve to open packaging, cut twine, and separate small bones from poultry, easily. The easy-to-grip handles ensure safe and simple operation, every time.
A Lemon Zester (3068) makes for the perfect tool in creating the tastiest garnishes and citrus spiced dishes. A short, broad, and toothed stainless steel blade allows the ideal amount of flavorful zest to be procured in the shortest time possible. Meanwhile, the molded, riveted synthetic handle allows for precise control and ensures durability. Perfect for marmalades, sauces, sorbets, and salads.
The Double Edge Peeler (4072) has been uniquely crafted to remove the skin from carrots, potatoes, apples, and more, in record time. The slatted peeling blade has undergone Wusthof’s renowned forging process and has been designed to provide consistent, effective skinning for a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The riveted and molded handle encompasses a full-tang handle, allowing for the tightest control and enhancing maneuverability.
The Grand Prix II 3.5” Paring Knife (4040/9) serves perfectly for the small chopping and prep jobs in your kitchen. The short, tapered blade is ideal for mincing garlic or shallots, while also proving capable as a fruit corer. Preparing spices and dicing garnishes is made even easier through its riveted, molded synthetic handle and full-tang design, offering the unparalleled control.
A Silverpoint II 5” Boning Knife (4605) grants a chef the perfect implement for preparing poultry, lamb, pork, or beef. The tapered blade features an easily-controllable full-tang design and inward curve, helping it to effortlessly glide through and around undesirable bones. The knife’s pointed tip is ideal for trimming fat and makes quick work of inconvenient sinews.
The Grand Prix II 8” Bread Knife (4155) allows for the crafting and preparation of immaculate slices of crusted, soft, and pillowy bread. The knife’s long and straight blade has been constructed with a serrated edge that breaks through the crusted outer layer of baguettes and loaves, while leaving the insides entirely pristine. The result is perfect bread slices for appetizers, sandwiches, and more.
A Grand Prix II 8” Cook’s Knife is the ideal kitchen workhorse. The thick, tapered blade provides unmatched utility in the preparation of virtually any dish. A simple rocking motion allows the razor-sharp edge to slice, dice, chop, and carve through a vast array of vegetables, meats, fruits, and herbs. The full-tang blade is complimented by a substantial bolster, giving the chef the control and precision they need to complete a full range of culinary tasks in as little time as possible. The riveted synthetic handle ensures that the perfect grip is always maintained.
The 10” Sharpening Steel (4473) may be the most important utensil for maintaining effective and high-quality cutlery in this set. The specially-grained stainless steel rod perfectly aligns the steel particles in a knife’s edge, in turn ensuring the knife is performing to its maximum potential at all times. A molded synthetic handle and convenient hanging hook allow for a secure grip and easy storage, respectively.
Finally, a Roll Bag (7372/8) gives students, caterers, and even rooted chefs, an ultra-convenient and secure storage option for their new or existing knife collection.
