Each Wüsthof Gourmet Knife is forged from a single sheet of high-carbon stain-resistant steel. Every hand-honed edge is laser-tested by Wüsthof to safeguard their superior quality. The results of this process is a top-notch blade, much sharper and with longer edge retention than other knives. These beautiful knives provide optimal function with ultimate balance and a safe, controlled handling experience. The precision forward bolster makes the full length of the blade accessible for cutting and also enables effortless sharpening of the entire blade. Wüsthof proudly displays their distinguished trident logo on the durable, synthetic polymer handles as a testament to their unparalleled quality.
Straight-edged knives provide a smooth, clean cut. Excellent for carving, use straight-edged knives on firm and soft foods including meat, vegetables and fruit. Blades with a serrated edge are better equipped to handle crusty bread, roasts, and foods with thicker, tougher rinds. Serrated edges excel at slicing tomatoes as well.
The powerful kitchen shears easily snip fresh herbs, cut fins or flowers, and release foods from paper and twine packaging. The handle design offers a bone crusher that can provide advantage over stubborn jar lids as well. These come-apart shears are designed to easily disassemble for cleaning.

The beautiful storage block keeps your knives edges sharp, secure, and safely housed. A rubber base provides stability on your countertop and prevents scratching and sliding.
