Wusthof "Gourmet" Series

beany | Apr 4, 2007 08:39 PM

Please excuse my ignorance on this topic, but I just went into my college bookstore and found a 4.5 inch utility knife for $19.99 and a 3" paring knife for $16.99, both prices Canadian, and belonging to the Wusthof Gourmet series of knives. I have always used Henkels knives but from what I have read, I got the impression that Henkels is a lesser brand compared with Wusthof, and when I saw those prices I thought Wow! This is a really great deal. Today I went back and realized that there are several lines in the Wusthof collection, and now I am wondering if I got such great knives after all. When I picked up the classic knife, I definitely felt a difference.

So, be honest did I get excited over nothing?

Thanks in Advance!!
