Ideal for intricate cutting and cleaning for fruits and vegetables, the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 3.5” Spear Point Paring Knife offers a tapered blade for close control. The blade’s short, sharp edge is perfect for peeling, mincing and dicing as well as meticulous decorating.
The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 5” Hollow Edge Santoku is outstanding for slicing, mincing, dicing and chopping nearly any kind of food. This Japanese-style chef’s knife features a hollow edge design that prevents food from sticking to the blade as you slice by creating air pockets between food and blade during use. Utilize this confidently for fish, meats and vegetables. The 5” length makes this knife perfect with medium sized tasks where a larger blade might prove unwieldy.
For large cutting tasks around the kitchen, two long, vital knives are included: the 8” Bread Knife and the 8” Cook’s Knife. The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 8” Bread Knife answers the call whenever a long, serrated edge is called for. Use it with confidence on large, crusty loaves and thick sandwiches, this knife even makes a great cake cutter. The sharp serrations cut through tough skins and thick rinds as well, making short work of winter squash and more.
The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 8” Cook’s Knife ranks among the most popular knives in terms of both style and length and makes slicing, mincing, dicing and chopping any food virtually effortless. The front section of this multi-function knife handles detailed jobs deftly, while the rest of the 8” blade readily manages the larger cutting and chopping tasks. Use this essential chef’s knife confidently for vegetables, fruits, meats and herbs.
Put the Kitchen Shears in charge of the more random jobs around the kitchen, such as snipping fresh herbs, cutting flowers or fins, and releasing foods from twine and packaging. These shears offer a come-apart design for easy disassembly for cleaning and maintenance.
The Wüsthof Universal Four Stage Hand Held Knife Sharpener has what you need to keep all these knives sharp, including the Asian-style Santoku. This sharpener provides two modes: a standard mode with two slots to sharpen and hone to 28˚, or 14˚ per side, and an Asian mode with two slots to sharpen and hone Santoku, Nakiri, and other Asian blades to a 20˚ angle, or 10˚ per side. Coarse sharpening is achieved with crossed, hard carbide steel blades, while the fine sharpening stage hones using fine ceramic rods. Blades that have a serrated or scalloped edge should only be sharpened using the ceramic fine stage. This versatile, weighted sharpener includes a rubberized base and comfortable soft-grip handle, so you’ll have stable grounding for sharpening. Just a few strokes through the appropriate slots and your blades will be sharp as new.
Each Grand Prix II blade is precision forged starting from a single blank of specially-tempered high-carbon stainless steel. Wüsthof uses their proprietary Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) to create the blade, finishing the process with laser-testing and hand-honing to ensure a notably sharper edge with easier maintenance than that of other knives. Grand Prix II knives offer impeccable balance from a full tang and feature a bolster shaped that allows for easy sharpening and maintenance, within its bold and contemporary style.
Crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer, the ergonomic handle is permanently bonded to the blade with a seamless fit for better hygiene. Wüsthof Grand Prix II cutlery bears the distinctive trident logo proudly upon each handle.
