The Wüsthof Gourmet 5 Piece Studio Block Set houses the fundamental necessities for any kitchen in a convenient, compact block. Contained within an attractive 4 Slot Block, this set consists of the 3" Spear-Point Paring Knife, the 4.5" Utility Knife, the 6" Cooks Knife and Kitchen Shears. Ideal for small “studio” size kitchens, the set has a modest footprint that takes up minimal countertop space while still offering an array of blades to manage a variety of food preparation tasks.
A versatile little blade, the Wüsthof Gourmet 3” Spear-Point Paring knife excels at detailed mincing and slicing tasks, including shallots, onions and herbs. Ideal for cleaning and cutting vegetables as well, the tapered edge and sharp point are ideal for meticulous and exacting precision. The Gourmet 4.5” Utility Knife is also well-equipped to handle small and detailed tasks, but can handle medium-sized work more readily with its length. Perfect for peeling, paring, slicing, mincing and cleaning vegetables or fruit, it also excels with herbs or small cuts of meat.
The Wüsthof Gourmet 6” Cook’s knife is perfect to handle medium and larger-sized chopping and cutting chores, and performs well with nearly any kind of food. Use this compact, triangular blade with confidence for chopping, mincing, slicing and dicing all kinds of food, including meats, fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
For more random tasks around the kitchen, the Kitchen Shears are the perfect assistant. Cut fins or flowers, release foods from twine and packaging, and snip fresh herbs easily. With the bone crusher built into the handle, the shears can even lend a hand with stubborn jar lids. The shears are made with a come-apart design to allow for easy disassembly and cleaning.
Each Wüsthof Gourmet knife is precision-stamped from a single piece of Chrome-Molybdenum-Vanadium steel using state-of-the-art laser technology. The blades then undergo an advanced grinding and polishing procedure to deliver a perfect taper from tip to bolster. Verified by laser-testing, every edge is razor-sharp and easy to maintain. While Wüsthof Gourmet knives are dishwasher safe, hand-washing better serves edge retention over time.
The comfortable and contoured handles of these knives are formed using a durable, synthetic polymer, then triple-riveted for strength and security and finished with the celebrated Trident logo.
The cutlery of this carries a lifetime guarantee.
