Wusthof 18 Piece Knife Set with Block

Wusthof 18 Piece Knife Set with Block

Whether you are just starting out in your first home or apartment or are updating your kitchen over from scratch, one of the most important things you can have in the kitchen is a set of your own kitchen knives.

Even if you do minimal cooking, there is always something that needs to be cut or sliced down to the right size. And if you do like to cook, you will regularly have a knife in your hand.

By purchasing the Wusthof 18-pc. Gourmet Cutlery Set with Wood Block you can  be sure you that you will have a good set of knives on hand, in fact you will  have a knife for evey situation.

This set includes 17 cutting items:

  • 8-inch cook’s knife
  • 6-1/2-inch santoku
  • 8-inch bread knife
  • 4-1/4-inch tomato knife
  • 8-inch carving knife
  • 3-inch paring knife
  • 6-inch sandwich knife
  • 4-inch utility knife
  • Six 4-1/2-inch steak knives
  • Kitchen shears
  • 6-inch kitchen fork
  • 9-inch sharpening steel

The knives are  set in an attractive oak block so that they can sit attractively on the counter and are always within reach. Additionally, the oak block has rubberized feet, so it will stay still as you pull knives out or put them away.

When it comes to the knives themselves, they are all made of high-carbon steel. The blades have all been cut by a precision laser machine, making sure they are perfect. They are also made with a stain-resistant alloy to make sure they continue to look as beautiful as they are functional.

What We Like

  • While this set may seem pricey, these are all gourmet pieces and you are getting a number of blades that could be $50 or more a piece in this set.
  • These knives are not only very sturdily made, but also very attractive so you won’t mind having them on display in the kitchen.
  • This is a full set of knives that will be able to suit all of your slicing and dicing needs.

    Excuse me for a moment while I dream… “The Only Cookware Blog has so much fun with their very first give-away that they quickly arrange a second, and even greater give-away. They choose THIS knife set… I enter the contest…. and my name is picked. I live happily ever-after with knives that slice thru potatoes like they were merely warm butter.” Oh, sorry, a girl has to dream!
