- 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Nancy from Great quality The carving set is a great addition to my Wusthof collection of knives. My only disappointment is that I specifically purchased the flat fork so that I could store it in my storage block with the rest of my knives however, it does not fit...it is too thick. Other than this storage issue, it is perfect.Date published: 2017-12-28Rated 4 out of 5 by onabudget from Great value Just purchased this set in preparation for the holidays. Same great quality and weight as the entire Classic line. The only downer is that the fork will not fit in any Wusthof knife block (I have two)!Date published: 2015-10-10Rated 5 out of 5 by ClaudiaAwesome from The only carving set I would ever use. This is my second set in over 40 years. During a family dinner someone threw away my carving fork by mistake. So I decided to buy a new set. I'm so glad I did. The new carving knife which came in the set is hollow ground and it is so great !Date published: 2015-01-16
