Before Japanese knives became the thing to have, there was German forged steel. The classic brand Wusthof is celebrating 200 years with a 2-Piece Anniversary Set featuring a 9″ cook’s knife and a 3.5″ paring knife distinguished by dark brown rosewood handles and triple brass rivets.
The $200 set is made from precision forged high-carbon steel using traditional methods and a 50 plus step process. Each knife has Wusthof’s signature bolster/finger guard at the base of the blade to give the knives heft and a solid, balanced feel. It also includes a gift box and special oil for maintaining the blades.
