Get dull very fast & not as sturdy as Classic
September 19, 2014
My brother bought a Classic knife for me for Christmas one year, so I figured I would give this set a try since it was Wusthof. I have had this set over a year now, and I am disappointed that I didn't spend the extra money to get the Classic. The Classics are much more sturdy and hardly need sharpening. These are too light and, since I use them everyday, (straight blades) need sharpening all the time. They also are prone to light staining...you have to be vigilant about washing them right away. I should have returned them long ago as Williams-Sonoma has a great return policy even if they are used within a certain timeframe.
Pros: Easy to Use, Easy to Store, Size, Versatile, Shape, Weight
Cons: Quality, Sharpness, High-Maintenance

Wish I could give these a zero-star rating!
August 21, 2014
Let me start by saying that I sold top-line cutlery from Solingen Germany, along with waterless cookware, back in my early 20's, so I know quality knives. These aren't it! I tried to find the difference on the WS website between the Classic and the Gourmet line but really couldn't discern any difference other than the price. I have purchased some of the Classic knives previously for a gift and they are top-notch! I'm VERY disappointed that Solingen would make such poor quality as this line of knives. When I first opened the package, I noted that the steel was extremely thin (the blade should be thicker on the top edge) and there was NO edge-guard! Quite frankly, I would be afraid to use these knives for their intended use. I might add that I cook on a gourmet level so quality knives are well worth the investment to me. These are going back and I will be reordering the Classic set.
Pros: price
Cons: Quality, Weight
