The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 3.5” Paring knife excels at mincing shallots, onions and herbs. This versatile little blade is ideal for cleaning and cutting vegetables as well.
The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 6” Utility Knife is an overall handy tool for any kitchen. Longer than a paring knife but more narrow than a chef's knife, it easily slices through larger cuts of meat, fruits, and vegetables. Still small and agile enough to use for peeling and detailed work, the blade also serves as an excellent sandwich knife, and can be used for medium-density foods of all types.
The serrated edge of the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 8” Bread Knife best handles thick crusts and tough rinds without crushing soft, delicate foods within. Long enough for large loaves and big sandwiches, this blade manages all kinds of crusty, crunchy, fresh or soft bread. Also great for cakes, fruit, and fried foods, it features a triangular tip to assist with varying tasks.
The Wüsthof Grand Prix II 8” Cook’s Knife is vital to any chef, and is among the most popular of sizes & styles of blade. As an fundamental kitchen companion for meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, this blade effortlessly slices, dices, minces, and chops virtually anything. Use the front portion of the knife to manage detailed chores, and wield the rest of the long blade for the larger cutting and chopping tasks.
The Kitchen Shears assist with the more random of kitchen tasks, such as cutting fins or flowers, releasing foods from twine and packaging, and snipping fresh herbs. The convenient bone crusher built into the handle lends a hand with stubborn jar lids. The come-apart design allows for effortless disassembly and cleaning.
To ensure you get the most out of your blades, the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 7 Piece Block Set includes a 9” Sharpening Steel to keep your cutlery at optimal performance. This sharpening steel is suitable for blades up to 9” in length.
Finally, a handsome 15-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, and leaves 9 slots open to accommodate as your collection grows.
Each forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, Grand Prix II knives are created using Wüsthof’s patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Laser-tested and hand-honed, the blades present notably sharper edges that are much easier to maintain than that of other knives. With a contemporary and bold style, Grand Prix II knives have a full tang to deliver impeccable balance and a bolster designed for easy sharpening and maintenance.
Crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer, each ergonomic handle is permanently bonded to the blade with a seamless fit for enhanced hygiene. All Wüsthof Grand Prix II knives bear the distinguished trident logo proudly upon each handle.
