Investing in a Wusthof Knife Set

While improving your culinary skills does requires time and patience, having the right tools will certainly speed up the process. Premium knife sets by Wusthof feature ultra-sharp blades and perfectly balanced handles that allow you to chop and slice any ingredients evenly and efficiently. Coordinated value sets are available with as few as two or as many as 26 pieces. A high-quality Wusthof knife set is not only a great upgrade for your kitchen, but also makes a fantastic gift for chefs or cooking enthusiasts.

About Wusthof

Founded in 1814 in Solingen, Germany, Wusthof is a family-owned knife maker with a reputation for excellence. Their knives are used and endorsed by world-famous chefs like Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and Emeril Lagasse. Though the company does offer some other cooking tools and kitchen accessories, its main focus is on crafting exceptional kitchen blades.

The Wusthof Knife Set Collections

Knife sets by Wusthof are available in a variety of sizes and colors. The larger sets generally feature a knife storage block, a knife sharpener and kitchen shears as well as a generous assortment of sharp and sturdy knives. While smaller sets with two or three knives are perfect for beginner cooks, the larger sets will completely transform your kitchen and help any chef cook more efficiently.

All Wusthof knives are categorized into blade product lines. Some lines focus on the needs of home cooks and others cater to professional chefs. Each of these special collections features all of the most commonly used blades, like chef's knives, paring knives and utility knives.

  • The Classic collection features stain- and rust-resistant knives with triple-riveted handles for added comfort. Each blade is forged from a single piece of high-quality steel. A Wusthof Classic knife set is a great choice for beginner, intermediate or advanced chefs.
  • The Classic Ikon collection comes with a few extra features that greatly increase their utility, like a recessed bolster. This allows the user to easily sharpen the entire blade surface using a honing rod or other knife sharpening device. These knives also have another bolster at the end of the handle to provide extra balance when chopping.
  • The Pro collection features knives which are tested to handle the rigors of a professional kitchen. Wusthof Pro knife sets also come with an easy-carry knife roll for chefs on the go.
  • There are also currently two special product lines which are exclusive to Williams Sonoma: the Urban Farmer collection and the Crafter collection. The Urban Farmer collection features knives with gorgeous beechwood handles for a rustic look. The Crafter collection features knives with shiny steel blades and rich oak handles with brass rivets, creating an eye-catching contrast.

With a Wusthof knife set in your kitchen, you can quickly slice and dice any ingredient into perfect portions for a home-cooked meal. Choose from a variety of useful sets to fit your cooking needs, like the Wusthof Classic knife set or the Wusthof Urban Farmer knife set. And these knife sets will not only help you to cook like a pro, but they're also a stylish addition to your kitchen countertops.
