For 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 mincing, peeling and dicing jobs with grace and is perfect for anything in between.
When the family or guests are seated for a classic steak dinner, four 4.5” Steak Knives offer sharp piercing blades that ensure clean slices without tearing. These knives perfect for filet mignon, ribs, pork or veal chops, and roasts, and are versatile enough for both difficult and delicate meats.
For your larger food prep tasks, you’ll have three distinct blades to choose from. The Wüsthof Classic 8” Cook’s Knife can be utilized for tasks both small and large, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, and ranks among the most popular of sizes & styles of knife. For larger jobs that require a serrated edge, use the Wüsthof Classic 8” Bread knife and its sharp, serrated edge, that is also suitable for cakes, fruits, and fried food. For carving and slicing, the blade of the Wüsthof Classic 8” Carving knife is perfectly sized and shaped for larger birds, roasts, barbecued beef and ham, particularly useful for holiday dinners or large family meals.
The Kitchen Shears readily handle cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, or snipping fresh herbs, and can provide an advantage over stubborn jar lids with the bone crusher built into the handle. Their come-apart design makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze.
Since care and maintenance is part of keeping these fine blades at their sharpest, the Wüsthof Classic 12 Piece Block Set includes a 9” Sharpening Steel, appropriate for sharpening blades up to 9” long.
Finally, the handsome 13-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, and offers 2 open slots for additional knives.
Blades of the Classic series are each forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, using Wüsthof’s patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). The hand-honed edges are then laser-tested for quality and precision, leading to sharper blades with notably longer edge retention than most other knives. These striking and elegant blades offer ultimate balance and safe, controlled handling. The bolster of the Wüsthof Classic series knives provide optimal protection during use.
Complete with a full tang and triple-riveting, each specialized knife has a contoured handle that provides comfort and a permanently secure construction. The handles of the Wüsthof Classic series are crafted from a durable, synthetic polymer, and proudly display the renowned trident logo.
The pieces of the Wüsthof Classic 12 Piece Block Set are each made in Solingen, Germany and carry a lifetime guarantee.
