Wüsthof Classic 5-Piece Knife Block Set
Rated 3 out of 5 by nuclearbalm from Too light - better bang for the buck I like the chef's knife & the shears, but these are too light and just don't FEEL very high quality. The pairing & utility knives feel completely insignificant. I probably shouldn't have complained based on the price but seeing some of the other much better cutlery sets I can get for not much more money I can't help but feel that I didn't get the best bang for my buck.Date published: 2012-10-10
