Made in Germany.
A complete set of kitchen knives in a 9-slot beech wood block: chef's knife (8" blade), carving knife (8" blade), carving fork (6" tines), bread knife (8" blade), serrated utility knife (5½" blade), peeling knife (2½" blade), paring knife (4½" blade), 9" honing steel, and kitchen shears. The precision forged blade, bolster, and tang are married to the incredibly durable Hostaform-C handle, triple-riveted to the fully-visible tang.
Use the peeling and paring knives for paring, peeling, trimming, and dicing fruits and vegetables. The carving knife is used for carving hot or cold meats, turkeys, hams, and roasts, assisted by the carving fork, as well as cutting sandwiches. The chef's knife is used for cutting, chopping, slicing, and dicing fruits, vegetables, meat, and poultry. The bread knife's serrated edge slices effortlessly through crispy baguettes and crunchy bread. The utility knife's serrated edge cuts easily through sausages without tearing the casings, and is also excellent for slicing tomatoes, fresh rolls or bagels, or your favorite hard salami. The honing steel is essential for keeping your knives in top condition. The kitchen shears are an indispensable tool for snipping herbs, opening packages, and cutting twine.
Wusthof knives offer a harmonious blend of precision cutting performance, integrity of materials, safety, and comfort. The knives are hot-drop forged by hand from a single blank of high carbon no-stain steel, a specially alloyed surgical steel consisting of exacting proportions of carbon, chromium, molybdenum, and vanadium. The blades are perfectly tapered from bolster to tip, and from the back of the blades to the edges, and are honed by hand. Perfect balance is assured by the full extension of the tang through the length of the handle. A seamless, totally hygienic fit is achieved by the durable Hostaform-C handle, triple-riveted to the fully visible tang; the handle is buffed and polished by hand.
