- Use & Care
- Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
- Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
- It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.
- Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
- Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
- Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
- Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
- Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
UPS can deliver most in-stock items within 4-5 business days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SailDucky from Yes, buy, IF you want a really good knife These are really excellent knives, especially for the price. Love them.Date published: 2015-12-09Rated 5 out of 5 by ccoski from Wusthof 2-Piece Knife Set Love the knives. The paring knife does the job well with small veggies.Date published: 2013-06-06Rated 5 out of 5 by DebHab from Lighter Weight, Same Quality These "Gourmet" knives are a good to excellent alternative to the forged Classic. I need a lighter weight knife due to a decrease in grip strength. These knives meet that requirement. They are laser cut, not forged. These will probably not be an heirloom, but they keep me happy in the kitchen with a sharp, sharp blade, nice balance, sweet grip. Good, economical alternative to the Classic.Date published: 2013-05-22Rated 1 out of 5 by LauderdaleCooks from Avoid this product I own a Wushof santoku knife and wanted another. Both knives in this set are not the same weight as if you had bought them separately. Very light weight, which to me signifies lesser quality. I plan to return this set. Give it a miss,Date published: 2013-05-15Rated 5 out of 5 by CeliacChefette from Holy Sharp Knives Batman! I have to admit, I'm slightly scared of them.. They're crazy sharp! In a good way though. I just have to get used to having REAL knives vs the crud I've been cutting with for the last fifteen years. I have NEVER sliced such thin slices of zucchini or oranges.. so thin! I feel like an artist when I'm using them, or a real chef. I highly recommend them - just need to find a good home for them.. don't want to have the two of them mingling with the older cruddy knives -- that would just be unacceptable.Date published: 2013-02-07
