Wusthof Classic 8-Piece Deluxe Knife Set
Personally, I have always loved the Wusthof knife as a result of its high quality. When I reviewed the Wusthof Classic 8 deluxe through a network of chef friends, the set did not disappoint.
According to the personal recommendation of various chefs I interacted with, the Wusthof comes with a set of knives that offer excellent grip. When it comes to evenly cutting out your ingredients, balance is said to be key. The Wusthof full tang blades are nested in a triple riveted handle that provides maximum balance and stability.
Many chefs love the Santoku Japanese style blade. The Wusthof set of knives come in Santoku blade which are noticeably thinner and lighter than most traditional blades.
Verdict: I highly recommend the Wusthof Classic 8 Piece Deluxe for those who are looking for a decent set of kitchen knives that offer great grip. The set might be bit pricy but you are paying extra for the high performing handle.
The Henckels Twin Four Set Knives
Henckels is a world re-known knife maker in the world. You cannot go wrong with choosing these set of knives. What I love most about these set of is the feel. They are well balanced with a little heft: nothing to tire your hand.
During testing some of the major features that stood out were: the well forged bolster, the three rivet handle and the full tang blade. Its handle has been designed to look like wood though it’s not. The knife also comes sharp and stays that way for a long period of time.
Verdict: If you are looking for a set of knives that conveniently stay sharp for as long as possible, you should go for the Henckels. The best part is that they are much more affordable than the Wusthof.
