Mundial 5100 Series Knife Block Set Though this set of forged high carbon stainless steel knives is manufactured in Brazil, the design and quality is thoroughly German. Adhering to proven ideas from Solingen knife makers, Mundial's knives buck no trends. You get knives as knives were made decades ago, with strong bolsters and solidly built blades that are heavy compared to many modern builds.

Mundial's seven-piece block includes a well-built hardwood knife block with storage for five knives, kitchen shears, and a sharpening steel, plus two extra slots for the favorite knives you already own. The workhorse of the selection is the 8-inch chef's knife built for slicing, chopping, and even mincing. For specialty work, choose the 3-1/2 inch paring knife, 8-inch serrated bread knife, serrated utility knife for sandwich prep, and a slender carving blade well-designed for cutting and boning meat. The kitchen shears included in the set feature short high leverage blades for cleaving gristle and bone and handle extensions with bottle opener options.

Unless you're already sold on the older forged steel European designs, consider a newer product like Victorinox which features lighter and very efficient blades of high quality stamped steel. Mundial knives carry an excellent warranty and reputation but show no obvious innovation. Some will find the heavy full width bolsters awkward since they reduce access to the entire cutting edge. Augmenting this selection with a cleaver for heavy chopping and a santoku for precision slicing rounds out the set to fit nearly any situation.
