Product Details

Wusthof Gourmet 4-Piece Steak Knife Set, Model 9729

Knife Characteristics
Wüsthof's Gourmet series of knives features a traditional styling that makes it the most popular of the Wüsthof lines. The hand-stamped and hand-honed blades are made from optimum quantities of high-carbon steel and a stain-resistant alloy, resulting in longer edge retention and easier resharpening. A computer-controlled grinding and polishing procedure ensures perfect tapering from bolster to tip for precision slicing. The weighted bolster gives the handle its heft and is considered a signature feature of Wüsthof knives. The fully visible tang on these knives is seamlessly encased in synthetic Hostaform-C handles, which are secured to the tang with three rivets.

Features:

  • Four traditional 4.75" steak knives
  • Precision-stamped of Wusthof's high-carbon stain-resistant steel alloy
  • Hand-buffed black handles are crafted of a virtually indestructible composite, triple-riveted to full tangs for superior balance and durability.
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Lifetime guarantee
  • Made in Germany

Special Features:

High quality – There are distinct visible differences between the Wüsthof knife collections. However, since each and every knife is precision stamped from a single blank of high carbon/no stain steel, the "which is better?" question does not apply. Only the handle assemblies differ.

Precision stamped, single piece construction – Provides maximum strength, safety, balance and heft. Precision forging means no stamping, no welding, no shortcuts. Just solid quality.

High-carbon, no-stain steel with molybdenum – The Wüsthof-Trident formula, proudly etched on each and every blade, has evolved over the years as the optimum high carbon/stain resistant alloy for edge retention and resharpening. Will not rust or stain.

What is Molybdenum? It takes a special kind of steel to allow Wüsthof-Trident to precision-grind its blades to such extremely fine tolerances. Think of molybdenum as the “egg” in Wüsthof’s steel batter. Acting as a bonding agent within the alloy, molybdenum gives steel flexibility without sacrificing its strength. The result: a less brittle steel that makes the Wüsthof-Trident knife an easier knife to sharpen and maintain over its lifetime.

Handle Construction - Hostaform-C is an extremely durable, impact-resistant polypropylene that is dishwasher-safe* and virtually indestructible. It is both moisture- and food acid-resistant. Completely buffed and polished by hand. The seamless fit between handle, bolster and full-tang is totally hygienic.

Material: The Steel

WÜSTHOF knives are produced from only the finest of original, select materials.

All knives of the CLASSIC, CULINAR and GRAND PRIX series are precision stamped from a single piece of high-carbon no-stain steel. It takes more than 40 major manufacturing steps from forging to tempering, grindling and polishing until the final cutting edge is applied. The formula X 50 Cr Mo 15 is proudly etched onto every blade. The analysis of the WÜSTHOF steel alloy is as follows:

X = Surgical steel.
50 = 0.5% carbon
The carbon content is significant for the sharpness, edge retention and honing of the blade.
It is indicated in 1/100 %.
Cr = Chromium for no-stain properties.
Mo = Molybdenum contributes to the no-stain properties
15 = Contents of chromium in %

Cleaning and Storage:

With the proper care, one can contribute to the long life of a WÜSTHOF knife, and it is not difficult.

The construction technique and the materials used to manufacture WÜSTHOF knives ensure that they are dishwasher safe. If you value your tools we recommend that, after each use, you wash your knives with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel. Corrosive food particles will not affect your blade if washed off directly after use.

The handy knife block provides protection for your blades as well as a visual compliment to your kitchen decor.

Approximate Weight:

  • Shipping: 8 lbs.

          I missed having steak knives after I purchased my knife block set last year. These knives are perfect to complete my need for knives.

            If you'd like a few extra Steak Knives then fine, but on this site for a little more you can purchase whole sets of Henckels Knives, and in 25/30 years of cooking on a daily basis for my family have by a long way beaten the competition in quality and stood the test of time and every set I've given as gifts I've gotten the same comments back several times. All the sets listed below were given as gifts to people I like or family and in some cases decades later not a single complaint.

              Comments about Wusthof Gourmet 4-Piece Steak Knife Set:

              We read in "The Big Black Book" that High-Carbon Stainless Steel was the best material for knives and that Wusthof was one of the best manufacturers. We've like the knives so much that we've had steak twice in two weeks and we don't really like steak too much. These knives, though, make you want to use them!
