Made in Germany, Grand Prix II knives feature durable high-carbon-steel blades and textured polypropylene handles. Instead of reaching for an all-purpose knife, select one from this collection with a blade that's just right for the task at hand. 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. 15-Piece Set includes: 3 1/2" paring knife. 4 1/2" utility knife. 5" hollow-ground santoku. 8" chef's knife. 8" bread knife. 8" hollow-ground carving knife. Six 4 1/2" steak knives. 9" honing steel. Pull-apart shears. 17-slot storage block. Please note: Storage block is counted as an individual piece.
