Crafted in Germany, Wusthof Grand Prix II knives are made with a special alloy that allows the blades to maintain a longer-lasting cutting edge. We configured this set to offer you essential cutlery for everyday kitchen tasks including chopping, slicing and dicing. Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of sturdy high-carbon steel that resists stains and corrosion. Wusthof's Precision Edge Technology (PEtec) creates an extraordinarily sharp blade that retains its edge 30% longer. Tangs extend deep into the handles for exceptional durability and control. Heavy bolsters provide perfect balance. Pebbled polypropylene handles are contoured for a secure grip. Handsome hardwood block safely stores 17 items and is gentle on knives' edges.
