For mincing, peeling, dicing and other jobs requiring fine control, reach for the Wüsthof Classic 3.5 Paring knife, the 3 Straight Paring Knife, or the 6 Utility knife. The 3.5 Paring Knife is an ideal choice for mincing shallots, onions and herbs, while the 3 Straight Parer offers close control for decorating as well as peeling, mincing and dicing. The 6 Utility knife is longer than the paring knives but more narrow than a chef's knife, it handles small and large jobs with grace and is perfect for anything in between.
For larger jobs, the set includes three distinct 8 blades. The Wüsthof Classic 8 Cook s Knife ranks among the most popular of sizes & styles of knife. This indispensable kitchen companion can be utilized for tasks both small and large, effortlessly slicing, dicing, mincing, and chopping meats, vegetables, fruit, and herbs. For crusty breads and thick rinds that benefit from a serrated edge, the Wüsthof Classic 8 Bread knife answers the call, and is also suitable for cakes, fruits, and fried food. For carving and slicing, particularly for holiday dinners or large family meals, the Wüsthof Classic 8 Carving knife has a blade that s perfectly sized and shaped for larger birds, roasts, barbecued beef and ham, whether served hot or cold.
Reach for the Kitchen Shears when you need to cut fins or flowers, release foods from twine and packaging, or to snip fresh herbs. The shears prove helpful with stubborn jar lids with the bone crusher built into the handle. Their come-apart design makes for easy cleaning and maintenance.
To keep all these fine blades at their sharpest, the Wüsthof Classic 9 Piece Promo Block Set also includes a Sharpening Steel, whose 9 length makes it long enough to sharpen blades up to 9 long.
Finally, a handsome 13-slot hard wood block holds and protects these fine instruments, and leaves 5 slots open to accommodate expansion.
Forged from a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel, each blade in the Classic series is created using Wüsthof s patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). These hand-honed edges are laser-tested to ensure Wüsthof s renowned quality, culminating in sharper blades with markedly longer edge retention than most other knives. These lovely and striking knives provide the ultimate in balance and a safe, controlled handling experience. The bolster of the Wüsthof Classic series knives offers optimal protection during use.
Finished with full tang and triple-riveting, each specialized knife is finished with a contoured handle that offers comfort and permanently secure construction. Every durable, synthetic polymer handle displays the renowned Wüsthof trident logo.
