This is a really nice set of knives; top quality and a good selection of larger and smaller knives/tools. I already had a few Wusthof knives (Gourmet) and they will fit into the block set. I must say that this "Classic" series is even better than the standard Wisthof "Gourmet" series. You can feel the difference in your hand; these are well balanced and have a bit of weight to them. Confession time: I love that ringing sound that a fine knife blade makes when you pull it out of the block! THe set comes with a honing rod, but I also purchased the Wusthof sharpener for convenience. I am very pleased with this set.

The knife set was sharp and all blades are cutting fine. Used steel on an older knife and it seemed to sharpen well. I bought two other knives a serrated paring knife and a peeling knife that was not included in this set. The block is angled and this helps with drawing the knives our as our old block was straight verticle and you had to tip it slightly to extract the longer knives and steel. So far, satisfied with this set. Did not need steak knives, so did not waste money on a larger set.

My hubby is a chef who uses Wustof knives regularly. He always complains about my cutlery at home. I got tired of it so I ordered this set. Wow! That first slice with a light weight, sharp knife - now I don't have to be jealous of his knives and he doesn't complain about cooking at home. Win-win. Now to get him to sharpen my old set.....
2752J (8 piece) is from the classic line and 3013F (12 piece) is from the Gourmet line. .The Classic collection is forged steel which is much more labor intensive construction and over all a better quality knife blade then the good quality laser cut version from the Gourmet Collection.
