Henckel versus Wusthof knives

miss_mia | Sep 7, 2006 01:58 PM

My MIL wanted new knives, so I scrambled and got her a Wusthof set from Macy's about 1 hour before she arrived to celebrate her birthday. Of course, she said that she had all of those knives, and I encouraged her to exchange them.

She reported back last night that Macy's didn't have what she wanted - open stock Henckels - but when I was there (fleetingly) they seemed to have ample open stock knives. I suspect that they only carry Wusthof, which I have always considered to be on par with Henckels. Would you agree?

(Though discussion of higher-end knives may ensue, this would be irrelevant to her - she doesn't really cook.)
