Wusthof Grand Prix II 2 Piece Knife Set If you wanted to buy the knives you are most likely to use, every day that you cook, you'd buy the knives in this set from Wusthof, the Grand Prix II. An 8" Chef's knife and a 3.5" (blade length) paring knife are the workhorse foundation knives of any kitchen. All you should be deciding is what company gets your money.

Wusthof presents a good argument with these two good stainless steel knives. If you shop around you'll find knives that are lighter in weight, and also knives that hold an edge longer. Wusthof of Solingen, Germany, follows an old tradition of forged steel blades, which makes their knives a little heavier and possibly even unnecessarily strong. With one piece steel construction, a forged bolster, and a rat tail tang secured in the wrap around polymer handle by a single stainless steel rivet, these knives will take abuse they'll probably never get.

The edge of Wusthof knives is thick by today's standards. If you compare the cutting action of these knives to equivalents in thinner modern alloy steel stamped blades, you'll concede that the newer styles take less effort. Some chefs still prefer the old styles, choosing to improve the edge themselves and even to spend a little extra time on honing, in order to have the solid strength of the Western blades. Sometimes it's about what feels right in your hands. This set is one of the right answers.
