Amazing Quality, great value for money!
You can spend a fortune on knives these days but I got a really good deal for the 7 piece Wusthof Gourmet knife set from Clearance Outlet online store for more than 50% off ($230) so was worth buying..I'm very happy with the quality of the knives & the shears, they are all very practical and the wooden knife block looks amazing on my counter, very happy with the purchase :)
First Set of Good Knives
I had used a friends set of knives (unknown brand) that were like a dream. Anyway, I came home to my horrible Kmart $10 knives and decided to take the plunge. After a lot of research, asking around and test-running kitchen stores I decided on this brand as it was based in Germany (known for their crafts men ship) and an old company (I think they have been making knives for around 100 years.
Anyway after I decided on this brand I decided on the number of knives, too many seemed like a waste but I wanted more than 1, so I ended up with ...these 4 knives which has thus far suited me well. 1st large kitchen knife which I use for everything (herbs, meat, etc), 2nd bread knife which I use for tomatoes and bread, 3rd utility knife and 4th pairing knife which I use to peel and cut things into specific shapes. All in all I use all 4 and don’t feel like im wasting money on this product. All knives cut everything like butter and it comes with a sharpening tool that keeps the blade straight. My only down side is now I think I want to buy a good set of steak knives to match.. but that being said I can buy this separately although in hind site I do wish I purchased it. Very sharp, feels sturdy, nice feel and good storage I wish I purchased the steak knives
Purchased this set a few years ago still looks like new and still as sharp, i have never used a stone sharpener or anything like that. All i use is a steel before cooking but will probably use a stone sharpener on my chef knife soon. Because that is the knife i use all the time and has got a couple very minor imperfections from lots of use.
High quality steel that keeps sharp edge for long time, nice feel
Qualitat aus Deutschland - smooth, sleek and secure.
This is my first real, proper cheffy-type kitchen knife. It's taken me many years to reach this point but I chose Wusthof because I used a set of them at a previous workplace and always promised myself I would get one as a reward for being a hard-working housewife. Well, this makes life a lot easier. Gets the job done more safely and quickly than my old knife (even after it had been sharpened). This makes me look good - which is difficult when you get to my age. In my humble opinion, you can't beat German know-how for precision metal implements..., whether it be can openers or cars. Affordable quality. Sleek styling. Contemporary design. Smooth action. Strong rivetty things hold it all together securely (apologies for the tautologies) which is what all we old housewives need as we age... The blade is sharp. I know that's an observation of a simpleton but, simply put, this knife delivers a consistent result on all foodstuffs that I've cut so far. Readily available as single units on eBay or as part of a set in a Wusthof knife block. Was hoping for a little more weight in the handle, but then I'm a novice knife user and I'm used to working with one cheap old knife at home so would be happy with a handle made of feathers (lol). The action is not super effortless but then I have old shoulder and wrist injuries. Couldn't afford to buy the whole set but then this one will probably last me another 20 years, like the first one did.
