Wüsthof Gourmet Knives
The call came for a Wüsthof knife that performed almost as well as the Classic series, but at half the price. Wüsthof’s answer: Wüsthof Gourmet Knives. Gourmet knives are a high-performance, low cost alternative to Wüsthof ’s various forged series, and combine years of excellence with a price which ensures that everybody can own a genuine German-made Wüsthof knife.
Each Gourmet’s laser-cut high carbon stainless steel blades will hold an edge for the long haul, but are still maintainable with a honing steel. The POM (Polyoxymethylene) handles allow for excellent durability, while staying tactile in slippery situations. Finally, the edge is razor sharp and laser-verified for precise cutting the moment it hits your cutting board (no glass please!). Although it won’t have the balance and heft of a Classic or similar line, if you want to experience German performance that will last a lifetime but without emptying your wallet, try a knife from the Wüsthof Gourmet line!
