For more random tasks around the kitchen, the Kitchen Shears assist when you need to cut fins or flowers, release foods from twine and packaging, and snip fresh herbs. With a bone crusher built into the handle, the shears can lend a hand with stubborn jar lids. The shears are made with a come-apart design for easy disassembly and cleaning.
To ensure you get the most out of your knives, the Wüsthof Gourmet 7 Piece Block Set includes a 9” Sharpening Steel to keep your blades at their very best. This sharpening steel is long enough to sharpen blades up to 9” in length. Finally, a handsome 9-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, and leaves 3 slots open to accommodate other knives.
Wüsthof Gourmet knives are each precision-stamped from a single piece of Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium steel using state-of-the-art laser technology. Each blade then endures an advanced grinding and polishing procedure to produce a perfect taper from tip to bolster. Laser-testing is used to verify each cutting angle, and every edge is razor-sharp and easy to maintain. The longer blades feature a full tang for exceptional balance. While dishwasher safe, Wüsthof Gourmet knives will retain their edge better with hand-washing.
A durable, synthetic polymer is formed into comfortable and contoured handles, then triple-riveted for strength and security and finished with the celebrated Trident logo.
The cutlery of the Wüsthof Gourmet 7 Piece Block Set carries a lifetime guarantee.
