When you need to mince shallots, onions or herbs, reach for the 3.5” Paring knife or the 4.5” Utility knife. Both blades excel at cutting and cleaning vegetables as well. The 6” Utility Knife is longer than a paring knife but narrower than a chef's knife, a vital tool for any chef that easily slices through larger cuts of meat, fruits, and vegetables, and is still small and adept enough for peeling.
A necessity for any kitchen, the Wüsthof Classic 8” Cook’s Knife ranks among the most popular of sizes & styles of knife. The long blade manages larger cutting slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping chores nicely for meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs. The Wüsthof Classic 8” Bread knife offers a serrated edge to easily slice through thick crusts and rinds, and also excels with cakes, fruits, and fried food.
The Kitchen Shears are ready to assist with cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, and snipping fresh herbs. The bone crusher built into the handle can lend a hand with stubborn jar lids. With a come-apart design for effortless disassembly, these shears are easy to clean.
Use the 9” Sharpening Steel to keep your blades performing at their best for years to come. This sharpening steel is long enough to sharpen blades up to 9” in length.
Finally, a handsome 17-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, and leaves 10 slots open to accommodate an expanding collection.
Starting with a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel, Wüsthof forges each blade in the Classic series using their patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Laser testing the hand-honed edges safeguards Wüsthof’s renowned quality, producing sharper blades that offer remarkably longer edge retention than most other knives.

Finished with a contoured handle, each specialized knife offers a full tang and triple-riveting for comfort and permanently secure construction. The durable, synthetic polymer handles proudly display the distinguished Wüsthof trident logo.
