Wusthof Gourmet Knife Block Set This ten piece block set from Wusthof features the laser cut and computer tested stainless steel blades of the Gourmet series, a light weight stamped steel product line which still has many of the fine features for which Wusthof is known. Buyers who expect the heavy forged blades of Wusthof's older designs will be disappointed.

The appearance is very familiar, but the forged bolsters have been replaced by shaped sections of the composition handle slabs. Triple riveted to the knife's tang, the handles are strong and gap free in the same style as the forged designs. In some applications the lack of a bolster allows freer action of the knife, and does allow sharpening of the blade for the full length of the cutting edge.

The stamped blades are more flexible than the older patterns but are flat ground in the familiar Wusthof style, with edge bevels wide enough to provide strong cutting edges resistant to folding and chipping.

The selection is focused too much towards the lighter end of the series to thoroughly cover the needs of a kitchen, with three styles of paring knives and two small utility knives making up the bulk of the set. A carving knife and chef's knife are the only blades capable of heavier work, and neither is quite enough blade for heavy chopping.

The set is filled out by a good quality 9 slot hardwood block, sharpening steel, and kitchen shears. Although it's a good set, if you buy it you'll need more.
