I bought two of these as Christmas gifts

I love Wusthof knives....this is a great set for a very reasonable price. Yes, the additional empty slots are a plus as I have previously purchased Wusthof Santoku knives that they will now be able to store in the block.
Pros: Durable, Quality, Easy to Store, Sharpness, Weight

Not a complete set
September 13, 2011
This set is an exceptionally nice product but I was a little disappointed that it was not fully stocked with knives...there are slots for 13 knives and I only received 11 knives...I was expecting a full set.
Cons: very poor customer service

Extra slots
In the description it tells you how many slots and knives there are. The reason you have extra slots in the block is so you can customize it by adding knives of your choosing.

Nice set with room for more knives
When a block of knives is full when purchased there is not a place for additional knives. I would add a tomato knife.I love this set and the quality of the knives. I always buy German!

it's a 12 piece set including the block. Having the additional slots is a nice feature should you desire to get additional knives based upon your cooking tastes. Some block sets don't have extra slots and then if you get another knife, you can't store together...this is actually a nice feature, so don't be bummed. : )

Hi Izzie,
Just wanted to point out that the idea of this set is that you have the option to buy two more knives of your choice. The set is meant to be incomplete! This allows you to customize your knife set based on the types of cooking you do! I think this is a great feature :)
