They call this thing a barbecue set, but shouldn’t a barbecue set have a spatula, wire brush, and tongs?
Whatever they call it, it’s pretty darn nice. That gorgeous storage box is made of walnut, with walnut inserts for storing your knives.
These high-carbon stainless steel knives are from Wusthof’s Gourmet series, which is very highly regarded among professional Chef’s.
Wusthof bills them as “full-tang” and “laser cut” from a “single piece of steel”, but that’s mostly just marketing hype so don’t get too caught up in it.
The real story is that these knives are well-made, are sharp out of the box, and should hold their edge well over time.
Eight 4.5 inch steak knives are included, along with an eight inch carving knife and fork set.
These blades are made in Solingen, Germany — aka “knife city”. Wusthof has been making knives there for nearly two hundred years.
Spatulas and tongs they’re still working on, I guess.
