Designed to complement the classic steak dinner, the six Wüsthof Silverpoint II Steak Knives effortlessly cut and slice through ribs, pork or veal chops, filet mignon, and roasts. These fine blades are versatile and flexible, readily managing both difficult and delicate meats.
When a slightly longer blade is needed, 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.

Its rounded tip is ideal for spreading duties, making this knife perfect for sandwiches.
For your largest cutting and chopping tasks, three distinct blades are at the ready: the 8” Bread Knife, the Slicing 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. When a straight edge and narrow blade are called for, utilize the Wüsthof Silverpoint II 8” Slicing Knife. This long, pointed blade cleanly slices and carves roasts, deli meats, fish and poultry without any shredding or tearing. The Wüsthof Silverpoint II 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 chef’s necessity confidently for vegetables, fruits, meats and herbs.
The Kitchen Shears assist with random tasks to be found around the kitchen, such as cutting flowers or fins, snipping fresh herbs, and releasing foods from twine and packaging.
