Reviewed by Scoutdad from California on Thursday, May 21, 2015This 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.
Reviewed by Richfow from Missouri on Tuesday, December 24, 2013The 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.
Reviewed by Dakotagirl from SD on Friday, August 9, 2013My 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.....

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Snowbound from DC on Monday, February 20, 2012Did lots of research with culinary fanatic friends, consumer reports and online. Henckel Pro-S only thing that came close, but the Classic Wusthof forged knives are both classic beauty and impeccable form/function. Feels great to handle and only a few weeks old, each blade is still sharp, as in, hey be very careful when handling...couldn't be happier. Ordered the Asian set to round it out, and the two Santokus (5" and 7") plus paring knife all found a home in the knife block that the Classic 8 comes with! Plus you get a sharpener and cutting board.
