Wüsthof Classic East Meets West 2-Piece Knife Starter Set
Our Wüsthof Classic set gives you two versatile knives that represent the best in Eastern and Western cutlery traditions. Shaped like a slender cleaver, the Nakiri is based on a traditional Japanese design for prepping fresh produce. It’s paired with a Hollow-Ground 6" Chef’s Knife, an all-purpose favorite in Western kitchens.
