The Wüsthof Gourmet 2 Piece Asian Cook’s Set is a excellent gift for someone beginning their knife collection or hobbyists starting to explore cooking and Asian-style food prep. The set includes the 3” Straight Paring Knife (4010/9) and the 7” Hollow Edge Santoku (4188).
For decorating and detailed work, the straight edge of the Wüsthof Gourmet 3” Straight Paring Knife delivers close control, and readily manages peeling, paring, mincing and dicing of vegetables, herbs, fruits and meats.
With its Japanese cook’s knife blade style, the Gourmet 7” Hollow Edge Santoku knife adeptly handles fish, meats, and vegetables, excelling with nearly any food when it comes to slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping. The blade features a hollow edge that creates air pockets between food and blade while slicing, preventing smaller and thinner slices from sticking to the blade as you use it. At a 7” length, this exceptional blade is ideal to manage larger foods while the 3” straight paring knife is the perfect companion for the smaller details.
Wüsthof utilizes state-of-the-art laser technology to precision-stamp knives in the Gourmet line, each from a single piece of Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium steel. The blades then undergo advanced grinding and polishing procedures that grant the blade a flawless taper from tip to bolster. With its cutting angle verified by laser-testing, the blade offers a razor-sharp edge and easy maintenance. A full tang for the Santoku delivers remarkable balance to feel like an extension of your hand as you use it to slice, dice, mince and chop. While Wüsthof Gourmet knives are dishwasher safe, hand-washing results in better edge retention.
Triple-riveted for strength and secure construction, the contoured and comfortable handles are each formed using a durable, synthetic polymer, and distinctly features the renowned Trident logo.
The cutlery of the Wüsthof Gourmet 2 Piece Asian Cook’s Set each carry a lifetime guarantee.
