Wusthof Culinar Knife Block Set One of Wusthof's better knife block sets, the Culinar 7 piece full stainless steel assortment retains the qualities of forged one piece steel without the unnecessary weight of less refined product lines. The 18/10 cutlery grade stainless steel wrap around handles match up to the bolsters of these rat tail tang knives with such accuracy that the joint is hardly visible. Their ergonomically tapered design favors low fatigue gripping and high knuckle clearance.

The five knives in this set include an 8" Chef's knife, 8" carving knife, 8" bread knife, 4 1/2" utility knife, and 3 1/2" paring knife. Rounding out the set is a sharpening steel with matching 18/10 stainless steel handle and a hard maple nine slot knife block with room for kitchen shears and an extra knife of your choice.

All these knives are laser tested to assure proper angle and finish of cutting edges. The Chef's knife, ground thinner than Wusthof's usual style, is an excellent choice for fine slicing of both vegetables and boneless meats. For heavier work like separating joints or chopping through bone you'll need a cleaver.

Although it's obviously a fine assortment that will match up to the lifetime warranty promises, the lack of a Santoku--quickly becoming a mainstay knife of American kitchens--and the need for a heavier butcher's blade do mean that you'll be filling the set out on your own.

Wusthof also manufactures the bread knife separately in their Culinar collection.
