Wusthof Classic 6 Piece Knife In-Drawer Tray Set

Move your cutlery off the counter and into the cabinet with the Wusthof Classic 6 Piece Drawer Tray Knife Set. Perfect for those with a smaller kitchen or ones trying to actually see their counter top, this cutlery block set for the cabinet drawer is a contemporary delight. Included in the space-saving package are the three essentials everyone should own: the Paring knife, Utility knife, and multi-purpose Chef's knife. The Chef's knife, or Cook's knife, will rarely leave your hands as it's used for chopping, dicing, and mincing on all types of food. The Paring is great for small precision tasks, and the Utility works well on medium-sized fruits and veggies, as well as tackling anything that goes into a sandwich. Two specialty blades accompany the set, which are the serrated Bread knife and the 5 inch serrated Tomato knife. The Tomato is wonderful for hard exterior/soft interior food items where you don't want to damage or release juices when slicing. The 7-slot drawer tray has room for two more knives if you'd like to add to the set in the future. Dimensions: 4.25" x 17" x 3". Lifetime Wusthof Guarantee. Wusthof item number 8978.

Why Choose a Forged Steel Knife?

Wusthof forged knives start with quality steel that undergoes extreme heat and hand moulding to enhance the flexibility, density, and hardness of the blade. Forged knives are hand crafted and offer greater strength and durability as well as better balance, a heavier feel and lasting sharpness compared to stamped cutlery. The tang of a forged knife always extends into the handle to improve the balance and ergonomics.
