The Wüsthof Silverpoint II 14 Piece Block Set (1577) listed here offers the same blades and accessories featured in the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 10 Piece Block Set (1515), but adds four steak knives to fill out the block completely.
For jobs requiring close control, three Wüsthof Silverpoint II paring knives are at your disposal: The 3” Flat Cut Parer, the 3” Spear Point Parer, and the 3” Clip Point Parer. Each of these excels at peeling, paring, cleaning, mincing and dicing, but each has its own specialties as well. The 3” Flat Cut Paring Knife offers exacting control for mincing, cutting and decorating that benefits from a flat, straight edge for accuracy. The tapered blade of the 3” Spear Point Paring Knife is perfect for meticulous cutting and cleaning for fruits and vegetables. The pointed tip of the 3” Clip Point Parer provides the extra precision for intricate cuts and details.
Created with steak in mind, Wüsthof Silverpoint II Steak Knives are the perfect complement to any classic steak dinner for four. These knives cut and slice effortlessly through filet mignon, ribs, pork or veal chops, and roasts as well. Versatile and flexible, these fine blades easily manage both difficult and delicate meats.
When you need a slightly longer blade, reach for the 4.5” Utility Knife or the 5” Serrated Brunch Knife. The Wüsthof Silverpoint II 4.5” Utility knife is shaped much like a paring knife, but is longer to better handle larger vegetables & fruit, as well as small cuts of meat. The Wüsthof Silverpoint II 5” Serrated Brunch Knife excels with bread, ripe tomatoes, salami, bagels, and more. Its rounded tip is ideal for spreading duties, making this knife perfect for sandwiches.
For your largest cutting and chopping tasks, two fundamental knives answer the call: the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 8” Bread Knife and the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 8” Cook’s Knife. The 8” Bread Knife is the knife for the job whenever a long, serrated edge is required. Use it confidently on large, crusty loaves and big sandwiches. The serrated edge makes short work of cutting through tough skins and thick rinds as well, and even works well as a cake cutter. The 8” Cook’s Knife makes mincing, dicing, slicing, and chopping any food virtually effortless. The front section of this all-purpose knife manages detailed jobs well, while the rest of the 8” blade readily handles larger cutting and chopping tasks. Use this essential chef’s aide with confidence for vegetables, fruits, meats and herbs.
Kitchen Shears lend a hand with the more random tasks around the kitchen, such as cutting flowers or fins, snipping fresh herbs, and releasing foods from twine and packaging. The handle conveniently provides a bone crusher that can assist with stubborn jar lids. These shears offer a come apart design for easy disassembly and cleaning.
To keep each of these fine blades performing at its best, the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 14 Piece Block Set includes a 9” Sharpening Steel, appropriate for blades up to 9” in length. Finally, these fine instruments are house within a handsome 13-Slot hardwood block.
Wüsthof Silverpoint II blades are each precision-stamped using advanced laser technology from a single piece of high-carbon steel, and then undergo a state-of-the-art grinding and polishing procedure. This process results in a blade superior in both strength and flexibility, one that offers a compound angle that tapers bolster-to-tip and spine-to-edge. Laser tested to ensure quality, these knives are impressively sharp and retain their edge well. With an attractive, contemporary style, Silverpoint II knives deliver controlled handling and comfortable balance.
The slip-resistant pebble-grain finish of the handles provides a secure grip. Molded from a durable, synthetic polymer, each ergonomic handle is fastened to its blade and secured with a rivet embellished with the distinctive Wüsthof trident.
The cutlery of the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 14 Piece Block Set is made in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
