The Wüsthof Classic 2 Piece Asian Cook s Set is a wonderful set for someone starting their knife collection or hobbyists beginning to explore cooking and Asian-style food prep, and includes the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 3 Flat Cut Paring Knife (4015) and the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 7 Hollow Edge Santoku (4175).
For decorating and detailed work, the straight edge of the Grand Prix II 3 Flat Cut Paring Knife offers close control, and adeptly manages peeling, mincing and dicing of vegetables, herbs, fruits and meats. With its Japanese Cook s knife style, the Grand Prix II 7 Hollow Edge Santoku knife readily handles fish, meats, and vegetables, and excels at slicing, mincing, dicing, and chopping nearly any food. The hollow edge of the blade creates air pockets between food and blade while slicing, which prevents smaller and thinner slices from sticking to the blade as you use it. At a 7 length, this fine blade is ideal to handle larger foods while the 3 straight paring is the perfect companion for the smaller details.
Wüsthof starts with a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel to forge Grand Prix II Knives, using their patented Precision Edge Technology (PEtec). Following up with laser-testing and hand-honing, the process produces a notably sharper edge that is much easier to maintain than that of other knives. With a contemporary and bold aesthetic, the Grand Prix II knives provide impeccable balance from a full tang and feature a bolster shape that s designed for easy sharpening and maintenance.
The ergonomic handle is crafted from a synthetic, durable polymer and permanently bonded to the blade with a seamless fit for better hygiene. All Wüsthof Grand Prix II knives bear the distinguished trident logo proudly upon each handle.
Each knife in the Wüsthof Grand Prix II 2 Piece Asian Cook s Set is made in Solingen, Germany and carries a lifetime guarantee.
