Wusthof Classic Knife Block Set The Wusthof Classic 7 piece Block Set is a high quality beginning chef's collection especially chosen for the home kitchen, with knives that will have permanent places as your favorite kitchen blades for years to come, and others that are stopgap knives you'll eventually replace. The selection partners an 8" chef's knife and a 3 1/2" paring knife--long lived favorites--with a serrated 8" bread knife and 6" sandwich or utility knife (stopgaps). Kitchen shears and a sharpening steel round out the assortment.

The bread knife will be very useful for pastries as well as hard and soft breads, but for cakes the 8" blade will sometimes come up short. Many people use these knives as carving knives for roasts, hams, and poultry--running the serrated edge across bone dulls the knife and makes it less useful as a pastry blade, so be careful. Sharpening this knife is a job for the factory.

The utility knife, easily sharpened with the honing steel, is a good size for small slicing work and sandwich chores, and will do a decent job of boning poultry and fish, and trimming waste from other meats. It's a little stiff for a filet knife and a little short for carving. When you have a full set on hand, including carving knife and santoku, you'll find less use for it.

The four knives in this set are one piece forged steel with durable handle slabs triple riveted to full width handle tangs. That construction is heavier than stamped steel versions, but if you prefer stiffer blades forged steel is a good choice. The Solingen alloy stainless used here holds an edge well and sharpens easily. Although the knives are rated dishwasher safe, for the best results wash and dry by hand.
