For mincing, peeling, dicing and other jobs requiring fine control, reach for the Wüsthof Classic 3.5” Paring knife or the 6” Utility knife. The 3.5” Paring Knife is an ideal choice for mincing shallots, onions and herbs. Longer than the paring knives but more narrow than a chef's knife, the 6” Utility knife handles small and large jobs with grace and is perfect for anything in between.
For classic steak dinners for the whole family or while entertaining, four 4.5” Steak Knives ensure clean slices without tearing. These knives perfect for filet mignon, ribs, pork or veal chops, and roasts, versatile enough for both difficult and delicate meats.
For larger jobs, the Wüsthof Classic 8” Cook’s Knife ranks among the most popular of sizes & styles of knife. This indispensable kitchen companion can be utilized for tasks both small and large, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs. For larger jobs that require a serrated edge such as crusty breads and thick rinds, the Wüsthof Classic 8” Bread knife answers the call, and is also suitable for cakes, fruits, and fried food.
Reach for the Kitchen Shears for cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, or snipping fresh herbs. The shears can provide an advantage over stubborn jar lids with the bone crusher built into the handle. Their come-apart design makes cleaning and maintenance easy.
These fine blades require care and maintenance to keep performing at their sharpest, and so the Wüsthof Classic 11 Piece Block Set includes a Sharpening Steel with a 9” length that makes it appropriate for sharpening blades up to 9” long.
Finally, the 13-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, offering 3 open slots to accommodate some expansion.
Each blade in the Classic series is forged from a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel, and formed with Wüsthof’s patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Hand-honed edges are then laser-tested to ensure quality, leading to sharper blades with markedly longer edge retention than most other knives. These striking and elegant knives provide optimal balance and safe, controlled handling. The bolster of the Wüsthof Classic series knives offers ultimate protection during use.
Finished with full tang and triple-riveting, each specialized knife offers a contoured handle with comfort and a permanently secure construction. The durable, synthetic polymer handles proudly display the classic Wüsthof trident logo.
The pieces of the Wüsthof Classic 11 Piece Block Set are each made in Solingen, Germany and carry a lifetime guarantee.
