Wusthof Gourmet 6-Piece Steak Knife Block Set

In its seventh-generation of family ownership, Wusthof has been making some of the finest kitchen cutlery in the world since 1814. The Gourmet line features precision stainless-steel blades that resist stains and rust and hold an exceedingly sharp edge. Special set includes six 4 1/2" steak knives and a 6-slot storage block that keeps them handy on the countertop. The serrations along these steak knives' edges allow them to "saw" through meat without crushing or tearing for cleaner cuts. The stamped blades are made of high-carbon stainless steel for top performance and durability. Triple-riveted high-impact plastic handles provide a secure, comfortable grip. Handsome 6-slot hardwood block is gentle on knives' edges. Steak knives: 4 1/2"-long blade; 4 1/2"-long handle; 1.75 oz. Knives are made in Germany. Knife block is made in China.

Rust spots within first 5 uses
November 5, 2013
We registered for these steak knives for our wedding and used them 4 or 5 times before multiple knives had brown rust spots. We hand washed them and dried them, and keep them in the wooden block they came with. I called the registry to have them exchanged and WS did so promptly. We've had the new set for about a month and the spots are showing up again. All of our chopping/cutting knives are Wustoff and we've had them for years without seeing this happen - let alone within 5 uses. They cut beautifully, grip nicely and are otherwise an attractive set, but the rust spots make them look like we bought them at the grocery store...
Pros: Easy to Use, Sharpness
Cons: Quality, Difficult to Clean, High-Maintenance, Fragile

More than just a steak knife...
February 5, 2013
I just bought these steak knives replacing an old set and am very happy with my purchase. I like having them on the counter for cutting fruits and veggies quickly. They are razor sharp so be careful!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Clean, Sharpness, Weight
