Along with the knife block, the set comes with five beautiful, olive-wood-handled knives, namely a 3.5-inch paring knife, a 5-inch serrated utility knife, a 7-inch hollow edge santoku, an 8-inch chef’s knife and a 9-inch serrated bread knife.

The set features the basic knives necessary in any kitchen, as well as a few specialized knives. Included is the invaluable 4.5" S11 Utility Knife, with eleven small serrations near the base of the blade. These serrations allow it to cut through thick rinds while still making shortcuts, perfect for cutting citrus fruit. The 5" Hollow Edge Santoku, the 6" Utility Knife, and the 8" Cook's Knife carry the bulk of the work, bringing their unique approaches to chopping, slicing, and cutting. The 3.5" Paring Knife is useful for smaller, more nimble cuts that the larger knives cannot accomplish. The 8" Bread Knife cleanly slices even the crustiest loaves, while the 8" Hollow Edge Carving Knife cuts smoothly through large cuts of meat without sticking to thinner slices. The Come-Apart Kitchen Shears handle many day-to-day tasks as well as more specific needs such as breaking down a chicken. Keep the knives perfectly honed with the included 9" Honing Steel, and help retain their edge in the included 15-Slot Beechwood Block.

Wusthof Classic Series Features

Every Wusthof Classic knife is forged from one piece of specially tempered high carbon steel to ensure outstanding strength, balance, and heft. The Classic black handles are made of synthetic material triple riveted to the full tang for a seamless and hygienic fit. Not only comfortable to hold but the skillfully honed by hand blades are also incredibly sharp and are easily resharpened. Made in Solingen, Germany; Lifetime Guarantee.

Why Choose a Forged Steel Knife?

Wusthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand molding to enhance the flexibility, density, and hardness of the blade. Forged knives are handcrafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel, and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve balance and ergonomics.

About Wusthof Forged Knives

Each Wusthof knife is precision-forged from a single piece of chrome-molybdenum-vanadium steel. This specialized high carbon, stain-resistant alloy ensures that the critical characteristics of each Wusthof knife are right there from the beginning: razor-sharp, a long-lasting cutting edge that is both highly stain resistant and easily restorable (able to be sharpened). This formula is imprinted on each forged blade is the following world-renowned Wusthof steel formula: X50 CrMoV15 X = Stainless Steel Mo = Molybdenum 50 = 0.5% carbon - significant for sharpness V = Vanadium for hardness and edge retention Cr = Chromium for stain-resistance 15 = Contents of chromium (15%)

Care of Knives

Honing and Sharpening 

Honing or sharpening depends on whether your knife has lost its sharpness or if it is really blunt. A blade's loss of sharpness can be treated using a honing steel. For dull, blunt knives, use a sharpener. To ensure a beautifully sharp blade, we recommend you hone your knives regularly, after each use.  Regular honing prevents blades from deteriorating quickly.


Clean your knives right after use. Thoroughly wash your blades with a non-abrasive sponge or brush, then dry immediately afterwards. Use warm soapy water. Always carefully dry your knives with the blade facing away from you to prevent unintentional injuries. While Wusthof knives are suitable to clean in the dishwasher, we recommend you hand wash only to prolong the life of your blades. Dishwashers can cause your blades to rub against objects during the cycle, causing the blades to deteriorate.  


Proper Storage

Proper storage of your knives and accessories ensures they will last for a very long time. There are three ways we recommend storing your knives and honing steels; knife blocks, magnetic bar holders, and special cases and space saving rolls. Knife blocks help your knives to sit beautifully on your counter top, while keeping them close at hand. Magnetic bars safely hold your knives and provide space. Special cases and space saving rolls allow you to easily transport your knives without causing damage or harm. Make sure your knives are completely dry before storing to protect the quality of the cutlery and accessories.
