Tough polypropylene handles with full, visible tangs and the traditional three rivets distinguish Classic knives from Wusthof's other cutlery lines.
Otherwise Classic knives are identical to other Wüsthof knives, embodying all the virtues that have earned the German manufacturer world renown.
The principal parts of a Wusthof knife-blade, bolster, and tang--are forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, and the blade is precisely tapered from bolster to tip and from back to hand-honed edge.
The blades and beautifully formed bolsters are not as thick as on some knives.
As a result, despite their heft, strength, and durability, Wusthof knives are pleasingly delicate and marvelously balanced in action.

This set equips a serious cook with nearly every cutting edge imaginable:

  • 5-inch cook's Knife
  • 6-inch cook's Knife
  • 8-inch cook's Knife
  • 10-inch cook's Knife
  • 2-3/4-inch peeling Knife
  • 3-1/2-inch paring Knife
  • 4-1/2-inch utility Knife
  • 5-inch tomato Knife
  • 5-inch boning Knife
  • 9-inch bread Knife
  • 6-inch sandwich Knife
  • 7-inch flexible fillet Knife
  • 8-inch carving Knife
  • 6-inch cleaver,
  • eight 4-1/2-inch steak knives,
  • 10-inch sharpening steel to keep their edges aligned,
  • tough kitchen shears,
  • 25-slot oak block

Cutlery of this quality should be hand washed.

Comments from owners:

  • This is the mother of all knife sets.
  • There are really two main competitors in the high-end mainstream kitchen knife market: Henckels and Wusthof.
  • Those who have used both usually have a preference. My preference (and therefore bias you should know about) is for the Wusthofs.
  • The balance and grip of these knives are as close to perfect as I have found.
  • For those wondering what benefits a higher priced knife provides, one benefit is that the blade (or tang) is one piece all the way through the handle making the blade much stronger, and less likely to snap.
  • This set is as complete as they come. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it.
  • Wusthof knives are the best I've ever used, and I've tried them all.
  • They are very well balanced, hold a great edge, and last forever if you care for them well.
  • If you want the best, get these.
  • What excellent knives.
  • Never thought I'd get excited about knives...
  • Henkels, Sabatier, and Chicago Cutlery make very nice knives, but trust me, Wusthof outshines them all.

Ultra-thin and incredibly sharp, Shun classic knife blades feature an optimal 16-degree blade angle making the blades flexible, but much stronger and sharper than traditional western knives.

These shun classics are forged in the tradition of samurai sword making and are known world-wide for their incredible edge-retention.

The ebony D-shaped Packwood handle in reverse-grip has that sleek, sophisticated look that makes these knives feel more like art, than instrument.

They fit naturally in the hand, for a comfortable grip, regardless of the length of the cutting task at hand.

This wood-grain pattern not only enhances the knife's beauty, it also adds durability and stain resistance, and reduces friction when cutting.

These heirloom quality knives will be a prized treasure you'll want to pass down to family for generations.
