Have you ever heard about the Wusthof Knife brand? If you have, you must know what I’m going to elaborate on. If you haven’t, it’s fine. Wusthof has been making exceptional knives since 1814 and their products have been used by many professional cooks and also normal housewives like me. My husband bought the Wusthof Classic Knife Set 7-piece for my birthday. The old knives I had were getting dull and I really admire the Wusthof brand since my brother has his own set. So below i have explained why i admire this particular kitchen knife set
What I Got
If you purchase the 7-piece knife set, you will get a 3-1/2-inch paring knife, a 6-inch utility knife, an 8-inch bread knife, an 8-inch cook’s knife, a 9-inch honing steel, a pair of kitchen shears, and a 13-slot storage block. My husband was also kind enough to buy me the Wusthof Hand Held Sharpener. The sharpener has 2 slots and it’s rubberised.
My Experience with the Knife Set
The first thing I would like to emphasis on is the balance and weight of the knives. These knives had a full bolster which I think is great since the knives are super sharp so if you graze if finger at the end, you won’t risk slicing yourself up. The bolster also balances the blade and the handle. The knife doesn’t not feel too heavy or too light.
The knives are made out of high-carbon stainless steel that have been precisely forged. I’ve been known to occasionally forgo the drying process and it has not show signs of corrosion. They have a full tang which is secured to the handle with three rivets. I think this is what made me feel much more confident in the kitchen. I didn’t need to worry about it slipping out my hand. Even though the handle is made of plastic, it’s very comfortable to grip on.
If you haven’t tried any products from Wusthof, I really recommend you trying it out. You never know what’s perfection until you try the razor sharp Wusthof 7-Piece Classic Knife Set.
