  • Wusthof 12 piece Starter set review

    I have used other brands of cutlery, Kitchen Aid, Cutco, J.A Henkel to name a few.They all were lkie useing a back saw instead of a good knife. The knifes I ordered from Foodnetwork were a pleasure to use. They have a nice sharpness that makes food preperation easy and a little faster. The next blade I will add to the set will be the oriental stile chopping blade then the meat slicer. Overall a nice set of blades.

    I recommend this product.

  • Don't wait to try Wusthof

    We have been enjoying Wusthof knives for over a decade now, and I still regret not having sprung for great knives many years ago. We now proudly give Wusthof knife sets to our children as wedding and house warming gifts, and they, too now wonder, "how do you ever get by in the kitchen without great knives? Start with a Chef's knife or even just a paring knife and you will be hooked with no regrets!

  • Slightly disappointed

    These knives were shipped and delivered in a very reasonable amount of time. They are all very sharp upon delivery. I was disappointed in the heaviness and thickness of the steel used for the blades. They are just not in the $400 price league, but okay at the$169 sale price. Do not expect top quality with this set as I was or you will be disappointed.

    I recommend this product.

  • Nice value for the money

    First let me begin with these knives are extremely sharp. We had a set of knives for quite some time by another reputable maker which served us well but their time was up. Wusthof knives have a good reputation so when I saw the set including the block offered I decided to order them. I also read the reviews posted as part of my decision plus the price was very reasonable. The order arrived quickly even though the weather has been terribly snowy. We are very pleased with the set.

  • Lightweight, but still great quality

    I like these knives, however, they are a lightweight version of the other set I own. Also, I miss having the carver with this set.

  • Poor value

    I was excited to order these knives, thinking they were like some I had already purchased. These were far inferior to other Wustoff knives I have purchased. I returned them

  • Good for the price--

    I have a set of Wusthof knives I bought 20 years ago that I will now use at my vacation house. These are good for the price, but not as heavy as my original ones.

  • Additional Pieces

    While I have enjoyed this brand of knife for over 20 years,, this set is a little lighter in overall weight compared to the original set I bought in Germany (cir: 1990). I personally would like to see offered additional pieces to complete the set. There are still two slots in this block. But the knives are of high quality and are sharp as knives should be. Thanks.

    The block is too long to fit well on a counter, When at the back splash, it sticks too far out on the counter.

  • Can't go wrong with Wusthof

    You can't go wrong with this set of Wusthof steak knives. Quality German steel, made in Germany and with a lifetime warranty. This knife block has an attractive look that will really stand out on your countertop. Note that unlike the picture there are two large open slots for additional Wusthof knives that you may obtain such as a Santoku. This is a set that you could buy and use for the rest of your life.

    I recommend this product.

    These are good high quality knives. They have good balance, and are sharp. I wish the block had more slots for the other knive available in the full set. It has two extra slots with this set, but there are many other knives that can be purchased to complete the set.

  • Good Edges for the Buck n 1st Real Knife Set

    I purchased this for my Son who is starting Cullinary Arts program in College as a 1st Knife set. I think that this is an excellent Bang for the buck. I have some Wustoff Professional Classic's of my own, and I like the edge and starting point that these knives provide.

    The availability for support and value provided by Wustoff is well known and access to additional knives is readily avialable regardless where he eventually moves to.

    He was excited when he opend the box and once all the knives were out, he immediatly asked to "put his block next to mine". :-)

    A truely appreciated gift, and a great gift to give.

    Well Done!
