I brought these knives as a gift to self to take my cooking to the next level. I love these knives. They are very light-weight which was suprising to me. I was use to my Chicago cultery knives that were steel through the handle. They cut with extreme precision. I ordered an extra knife to go in the block and a end grain board.
My husband and I appreciate a good knife and the Wustof 10 piece set will probably be the last set we will need to buy. We have tried other high quality name brands and the Wustof are our favorite. Best of all...we got them at a great price!
There is no comparison between Wusthof knives and others on the market. The investment is worth every penny. They deliver great, great value for the money you spend. These knives will outlast me! Both of my married sons look forward to me adding to their collection of Wusthof knives every Christmas.
My wife and I received these knives as a wedding gift. I do most of the cooking and this was my first "real" set of knives. I previously worked from my hodge-podge collection of bachelor's-grade cutlery. Most of which was hand-me-downs. These knives are remarkably sharper then what I was previously used to. For the first time I felt like I had the tools to prepare meals similar to what I would see on a cooking show. They hold an edge quite well. I received a Wustoff Ikon sharpener this Christmas and gave the knives their first real sharpening, about 14 months after first using them. Most only required a light honing of the blade. I am thrilled with this set and added a butcher's knife to the block along with the steak knives. No more serrated knives to tear my meat apart! Highly recommended to anybody looking to make a kitchen investment that will pay off for years to come.
These knives will be the last you ever buy. Very comfortable in hand and well balanced. Keeps nice sharp edge . Scissors are great for everyday kitchen needs. The 9 inch sharpening steel is easy to use. 6 steak knives are a plus. Don't look any further,these are the knives for you.
When I began culinary school I was given a set of Wusthof knives. These knives helped me chop, cube, and dice vegetables up lickety split. They are the go to knives for any home cook or culinarian. Light, sleek, sharp, and easy to handle...no matter what your kitchen skills are, these knives rein supreme.
I received this product for Christimas and put it to work immediately. I used the knives all Christmas Day and throughout the rest of the holiday season. The Wusthof set held a sharp edge that is so important when cooking. I recently had to use the knife sharpner to to put an edge back on. I am a serious home cook and use my knives every day. This was the best Christmas gift my family could have purchased for me.
I got the big set including the steak knives for Christmas a few years ago. One of the best gifts ever. You don't realize the extra work you are doing when using bad knvies until you use these. Everything cuts like butter.
I've always liked to cook, but for many years I struggled with cheap knives. Then my husband gave me a set of Wusthof knives for Christmas a few years ago and cooking became a joy. Now the whole family loves to chop and mince and slice because Wusthof knives make those tasks so easy. Your food will be fresher, healthier, tastier, more attractive and less expensive because you'll never again buy pre-cut vegetables or fruits or meats--you can do the job yourself easily and efficiently. There's a Wusthof knife for every purpose.
I gifted this set to my aunt and uncle who didn't even own a chef knife. This set contains a knife for every purpose, and they all got used this Christmas preparing dinner for all 28 of my relatives. Handles are comfortable to hold, and edges stay sharp. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a good basic set.
I received this set as a Christmas gift last year and after 20 yrs in food service both military and healthcare I have found these knives to be as good as any higher priced brands. Well balanced, edge retaining, they will provide many years of service to the novice and professional.

These were a gift for my son. He was so pleased and excited. He loves to cook and knows how nice Wustoff knives are. I was delighted with the price offered be Chefs! The set was missing one knife but I have contacted Chefs about a replacement. Great price!
