Wusthof® Classic 13-Piece Set with Gourmet Steak Knives
Great Set- Sharp
This is a great set to start out with. The knives are super sharp and will cut through anything. The block has extras spots for you to add to the collection.

I went from nothing to everything with this set. I use all the knives and they perform the way knives should. Very sharp. Must be careful. I love the classic look too. Can't stop chopping....

Nice balance in the hand & attractive
Would highly recommend the Wusthof Classic 13 piece Set with Gourmet Steak Knives.
The balance and weight of the knives feel very nice in the hand.
Attractive on the counter, receiving many compliments from dinner guests who wish to inquire where we purchased the set for their own gourmet kitchens.
As far as long term wear and tear, we will have to wait and see, as we have only had the set for a couple of weeks...

Wusthof knives are amazing
I've used these knives every single day for the seven months or so since we received this set as a wedding gift. A great starter kit and the 6 steak knives are very nice, although they are from the less expensive Gourmet line. However, they are completely adequate and I actually wouldn't want anything sharper or heavier on the dinner table for safety reasons. We completed the set with giftcards we received and we couldn't be happier. I am in the kitchen constantly as we eat a lot of produce and these knives have been phenomenal, actually cutting down on the time it takes to slice/chop etc. Both my husband and I are very pleased, and we recently gifted some as well to another couple. Can't say enough good things.
Beware they are very sharp - should come with a pack of bandaids!

The only reason for the 4-star rating was that we returned the set once because the bock had some minor imperfections. There were 1 or 2 very small gaps between a couple of the slots where the wood was not properly joined together and there was some rough texture along one of the edges going down the back of the block, presumeably from some excess glue. The set was purchased online but returned through a store where another set was ordered and mailed to us within 1 week. Otherwise, we would have given 5 stars. The Cherry wood block is a little more rust-colored that I expected when I think about Cherry wood but it still looks very nice and classy on our counter. I like it much more that the more common and traditional Beech or Oak wood blocks. The knives are absolutely amazing. You cannot go wrong with Wusthof knives. The steak knives are from the less expensive Gourmet line which is all you need for steak knives in my opinion and it helps keep the over all price down while still getting six steak knives that cut through any steak very smoothly and easily. The remaider of the knives are from the Claasic line and are excellent in form and function. They are very well balanced and weighted and fit well in the hand. The blades are very sharp and cut effortlessly. This is a great starter set and can tackle most any job in the kitchen but, I still added the 7" Santoku and the 6" Wave (truely amazing) knife from the Classic line and intend to add the 5" Santoku and probably a 4.5" pearing knife to complete the set.
