The African Blackwood carving set is the third addition to my Blackwood set. Wusthof is synonymus with excellence and the African Blackwood adds a level of elegance. This carving set was the talk around the table (just after the perfectly prepared turkey) this past Thanksgiving. The knife cut perfect slices of meat with ease as one would expect from a Wusthof blade. I find the fork a bit heavy but perfectly functional. I'm sure this carving set will become a family heirloom for generations to come.
