Bob Kramer Essential 7-Piece Block Set | Sur La Table

troukhad | May 3, 201507:15 PM

I would like to make very expensive present (it worth it!).

Do you think I can get any better knives set for $680 (sake) than this one
• Includes: 4" paring knife,
• 5" utility knife,
• 8" chef’s knife,
• 10" bread knife,
• 7" santoku,
• 12" steel,
• 14-slot walnut block

I am not looking for quantity of knives – just 4 or 5 essential e.g. chefs (8”), bread (serrated for tomatoes, pepper, etc), slicing, ..

Do you think that for $380 7 piece Wusthof Classic Ikon Block Set is as good as Kramer (quality wise)?
Seven-piece set includes:
• 3½" paring,
• 6" utility,
• 8" chef’s,
• 8" bread,
• kitchen shears,
• honing steel
• 13-slot block.

Should I consider any other knives (do not really like Japanese style knives due to narrow handles).

One more thing – needs to look nice (Classic Icon than Classic ….)

PS: Hopefully posting this in the correct section of the forum (could not find any knives specific section).
