For mincing, peeling, dicing and other jobs requiring fine control, reach for the Wüsthof Classic 3.5” Paring knife, the 3” Straight Paring Knife, or the 4.5” Utility knife. The 3.5” Paring Knife is an ideal choice for mincing shallots, onions and herbs, while the 3” Straight Parer offers close control for decorating as well as peeling, mincing and dicing.
The 4.5” Utility knife is longer than the paring knives but more narrow than a chef's knife, making it perfect for medium-sized tasks but adaptable to smaller and larger chores. For other medium jobs, choose from the serrated 5” Tomato Slicer or the Japanese-styled 5” Hollow Edge Santoku knife. The serrated edge of tomato knife slices the ripest tomatoes as thin as you like, or can be used for breads and sandwiches and more, offering a forked tip that’s great for serving. The Santoku is perfect for cutting, slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping fish, meats, and vegetables. The blade’s hollow edge creates air pockets between the food and blade, preventing the more delicate slices of food from sticking to the blade as it’s used.
For larger jobs, the set includes two distinct 8” blades. Ranking among the most popular of sizes & styles of knife, the Wüsthof Classic 8” Cook’s Knife is an indispensable kitchen accessory for tasks both small and large, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs. The Wüsthof Classic 8” Bread knife answers the call when it comes to crusty breads and thick rinds that benefit from a serrated edge, and is also suitable for cakes, fruits, and fried food.
The Kitchen Shears are ideal whenever you need to cut fins or flowers, release foods from twine and packaging, or to snip fresh herbs. They can prove helpful with stubborn jar lids with the bone crusher built into the handle, and the come-apart design makes for easy cleaning and maintenance.
To keep all these refined blades performing at their best, the Wüsthof Classic 10 Piece Block Set includes a Sharpening Steel with a 9” length that makes it appropriate to sharpen blades up to 9” long.
Finally, the attractive 15-slot hard wood block holds and protects this fine assortment of blades, leaving 6 slots open to accommodate expansion.
Forged from one singular piece of high-carbon stainless steel, each blade in Wüsthof’s Classic series is created using innovative Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). The hand-honed edges are laser-tested to certify Wüsthof’s renowned quality, resulting in sharper blades with markedly longer edge retention than most other knives. These strikingly elegant knives deliver the ultimate in balance and a safe, controlled handling experience. The bolster of the Wüsthof Classic series knives provides optimal protection during use.
