Give the Gift of a Gorgeous Carbon Steel Knife Set

You've got a wedding coming up. Your son or daughter just moved into their very own home. Or, maybe you're the new homeowner. Whatever the case, you're likely going to need a new set of knives to be proficient in the kitchen. While you could potentially get away with just a butcher or paring knife, eventually you're going to want different knives for different kitchen tasks. Enter the carbon steel knife set. Williams Sonoma has a vast array of knife sets available that will help you chop, slice and julienne your way to a great meal.

Why Carbon Steel?

Unlike other types of steel which carbon content range is about 0.05% to 0.3%, carbon steel has a content of 2.5% carbon making it stronger, more durable and longer-lasting. As such, carbon steel is used to make auto parts, tools, construction materials - and of course knives - and can stand up to rust and stains. It also adds a sleek and beautiful touch to the kitchen.

What's in a Carbon Steel Knife Set?

The knife sets of this caliber available at Williams Sonoma range from two up to 18 pieces. Two- to five-piece sets usually include:

  • Paring knife - ideal for chopping smaller veggies, such as baby carrots and mushrooms, as well as peeling garlic and slicing small cheeses.
  • Chef's knife - thanks to its wide blade that tapers to a point, this beauty can perform many cutting functions, such as chopping, mincing and slicing.
  • Utility knife - this knife is the middle point between a paring knife and a slicing knife, making slicing fruits and veggies a breeze.
  • Bread knife - its serrated edge is ideal for slicing bread loaves and bagels.

Typically, a knife block is part of a set of five pieces or more to keep it all organized and in one spot on your kitchen counter. Go up to 18 pieces for other great tools such as:

  • Kitchen shears - open packages, cut through chicken pieces and snip herbs with this handy kitchen tool.
  • Knife sharpener - prevent dullness from setting in by keeping those knives sharpened and at the ready for your next cutting task.
  • Carving knife - the king of the knife set, this knife is reserved for carving up large portions of meat, such as roast turkeys and whole chickens.

Gift Ideas

You can also opt for a simple four-piece Wüsthof steak knife set, which makes a perfect wedding gift. Throw in a set of kitchen utensils or a couple of cutting boards for a kitchen-themed package they're sure to love and appreciate.
