This 17-slot block leaves two open slots for you to fill with knives of your choice.
Each Wüsthof Classic knife is forged from a single piece of specially tempered, high-carbon stain-resistant steel and formed using their innovative Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Every hand-honed edge is laser-tested to ensure superior Wüsthof quality. This process results in a first-class blade, much sharper and with much longer edge retention than other knives. Strikingly elegant in appearance, these beautiful knives provide optimal function as well. The bolster offers ultimate balance while the heel delivers a safe, completely controlled handling experience. The precision forward bolster grants access to the full length of the blade for cutting, and enables effortless sharpening of the entire blade as well.
With a full tang and triple-riveting to offer comfort and permanent security, a contoured handle completes each specialized knife. Wüsthof proudly displays their renowned trident logo on the durable, synthetic polymer handles as a testament to their illustrious quality.
Knives featuring a straight edge provide a smooth, clean cut. Excellent for carving, reach for a straight-edged knife for firm and soft foods including meat, vegetables and fruit. Blades with a serrated edge are best equipped to handle roasts, crusty bread, and foods with thicker, tougher rinds. Use a serrated-edged blade for slicing tomatoes.
The powerful shears make it easy snip fresh herbs, cut fins or flowers, and release foods from paper and twine packaging. The handle design provides a bone crusher that can give you an advantage over stubborn jar lids as well. These “come-apart” shears disassemble easily for cleaning.
Use the sharpening steel to keep everything sharp, at 10” this steel is ideal for any knife up to 10” in length. Magnetized steel attracts the metal fibers released during sharpening. Clean the sharpening steel with a damp cloth after each use.
Each Wüsthof knife in this 16 piece block set is crafted in Solingen, Germany and offers a limited lifetime guarantee.
