12-Piece Chef Knife Block Set (NO Steak Knife Included)
Model 250

This 12 piece set gives you the ultimate culinary experience. With 8 knives, a carving fork, two steels for maintenance, and our beautiful wooden block, our Executive Series Knife Block Set provides you with everything you need and more to create great tasting meals for you and your family.One steel is a diamond steel for sharpening.

Your new knives should last forever if you take care of them.  Good knives should never be put in the dishwasher.  Always hand wash and dry right away.  Never leave them sitting in water for extended periods.  They can rust and the pakkawood can swell.  The reason is that good knives are not made from pure stainless steel.  They are made from a mixture of high carbon steel and stainless steel.  The high carbon allows the knife to be sharpened and the stainless keeps it from staining.  However, the detergents and heat in a dishwasher are too much for the mixture and all good knives will rust in the dishwasher.  Always use the honing steel to realign the edge before use.  This should be done before every use.  The honing steel straightens the edge.  It does not sharpen.  The diamond steel should be used approximately once a month or when your knives don’t feel sharp after using the honing steel.  The diamond steel has powdered diamond dust to remove a small amount of metal to get your edge back.  If the diamond steel and honing steel doesn’t work its time to use a V sharpener.  The V sharpener will strip off the old edge and put on a new one.  But try not to use it too often as it will wear your blade away after time.   For a complete tutorial on how to use the sharpeners and all other knife skills, please take our knife skills video class by clicking here

Great knives............Super sharp
This set of Gunter Wilhelm knives is not only great looking, but so functional! The knives are extremely sharp, and the handles are beautifully crafted. The weight in your hand is just perfectly balanced, and I hope to have many many years of use!
I received a tip to use the sharpener after each extensive use to prolong the sharpness of the blades. I plan on doing so!
Wonderful purchase and worth waiting for.

Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight

My favorite knife Set
We received this set for our wedding and have been absolutely thrilled with the quality and sharpness of these knives. Collectively between the two of us, we had a few Wusthofs and Henckel knives before our wedding, but are so glad we decided to go with Gunter Wilhelm. Be careful, it's easy to cut yourself on their razor-thin edges, but it makes them very effective for lots of chopping and slicing. This set has pretty much every knife you would ever need. We use them nearly every day. Make sure to wash and dry them right away to avoid any rust spots.

Amazing! Best Knife I have ever held in my hand~!
I love love love my knives. I have been saying for three years I want new knives. My husband and I broke down and finally put the money on them. They seriously will cut anything and easily. I loved to cook before and now I think I will be eating more veggies because it makes kitchen life so easy! You will not be sad you spent the money!

Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Size, Sharpness, Weight

Best knives I have ever used regardless of price.
There are two things that are vital for me as an amateur chef who apprenticed at some very fine restaurants..

Cookware and cutlery.

My cookware is every piece of All Clad imaginable

Knives. Well, they are a very individual preference. I have used all the 'high' common standards. Henckels, Wusthof and some smaller brands.

None had the balance, sharpness and ease of use that Gunter Wilhelm knives offer, regardless of price.

Balance, sharpness and overall feel are exceptional. The knives looking good is a great bonus!
