For jobs that requires close control, three versatile blades are at your disposal: the 3” Flat Cut Parer, the 3.5” Parer, and the 4.5” Utility knife. Any of these blades are idea for mincing, peeling, dicing. The 3.5” Parer is an ideal choice for mincing shallots, onions and herbs, while the 3” Flat Cut Parer offers close control for decorating as well as peeling, mincing and dicing. The 4.5” Utility knife is ideal when you need just a little more blade when working with small-to-medium sized food tasks, and its 6” counterpart is ready when the task at hand grows just a little larger.
For more specialized work, reach for the 5” Serrated Utility knife for tomatoes, sandwiches, and small loves of bread, or the 5” Boning Knife with its sharp tip for trimming fat and sinew, in addition to cutting tendons. Tapering from the spine for strength and durability, the boning knife offers a flexible blade with an inward curve designed to excel with separating meat from bone.
For medium-sized tasks that benefit from a little more blade length, the 6” Utility Knife and the 7” Hollow Edge Santoku offer their multifaceted abilities. Longer than the paring knives but more narrow than a chef's knife, the 6” Utility Knife manages larger cuts of meat, fruit and vegetable with grace. The 7” Hollow Edge Santoku offers excellent versatility as a Japanese-style Chef’s Knife for cutting, slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping fish, meats, and vegetables. Its hollow edge create air pockets between the food and blade as it’s used, preventing the more delicate slices of food from sticking to the blade.
When the table is set for a classic steak dinner for a large family or dinner guests, eight Grand Prix II 4.5” Steak Knives offer sharp piercing blades that produce clean slices without tearing or shredding. Versatile enough for both difficult and delicate meats, these knives are perfect for filet mignon, ribs, pork and veal chops, and roasts.
For the more sizable kitchen chores, you’ll have four distinct blades to choose from: the triangular Cook’s knife in 8” and 10” versions, the straight blade of the 8” Carving knife, and the serrated edge of the 8” Bread Knife. The 8” Cook’s Knife ranks among the most popular blades in both style and size, managing tasks both small and large. Effortlessly it slices, dices, minces and chops meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs, and its 10” counterpart is perfect when the task could benefit from even more heft and length. For carving larger birds, roasts, barbecued beef and ham, the blade of the 8” Carving knife slices cleanly without tearing or shredding, and is a perfect companion for holiday dinners and large family meals. When it comes to crusty breads and thick rinds, grab ahold of the 8” Bread knife. Its sharp, serrated edge is also well-suited for large loaves, as well as tomatoes, cakes, fruits, and fried food.
For the many oddball tasks around the kitchen, the Shears are there for cutting fins or flowers, snipping fresh herbs, and releasing foods from twine and packaging. The handle provides an advantage over stubborn jar lids with its convenient bone crusher. These shears come apart for easy disassembly and cleaning.
To keep your cutlery performing at its superbly sharp best, the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 22 Piece Block Set comes with a 9” Sharpening Steel, perfect for blades up to 9” in length. Finally, a handsome 22 Slot hardwood block houses these fine instruments, with 8 slots left open to accommodate collection expansion.
