7-PIECE BLOCK SET INCLUDES:
3" PARING KNIFE
Designed to handle precise tasks like mincing garlic and shallots, coring tomatoes and strawberries—even making decorative cuts like radish rosettes.
4½" UTILITY KNIFE
Sometimes called a sandwich knife because it works well on almost everything that goes into a sandwich—from thin-skinned vegetables such as tomatoes to meats and cheeses.
6" SERRATED UTILITY KNIFE
Features a serrated edge that slices tomatoes or even the toughest-crusted loaves with ease.
6" CHEF’S KNIFE
This kitchen workhorse makes it easy to chop, dice, slice, and mince large quantities of meat and vegetables.
9" HONING STEEL
Enables you to maintain the razor-sharp edges of your cutlery collection.
A kitchen essential: handy for trimming pie dough, snipping chives, removing fat from raw poultry, and lots more.
9-SLOT WOOD STORAGE BLOCK
Displays your elegant cutlery, keeping knives safe and secure between uses. Extra slots enable you to easily expand your collection.
Wüsthof’s state-of-the-art manufacturing methods deliver consistently high and uniform quality. Each knife in the Gourmet line is laser cut from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel for a precise, razor-sharp edge. Plus, each blade is laser tested to ensure correct cutting angle.
Triple-riveted, full-tang handle is made of a durable polymer that’s contoured for a comfortable grip.

I've found that I use the 4.5"" knife the most; its easy to handle and suitable for most daily kitchen tasks.
The bread knife is a nice addition, and like the set, its the first real bread knife I've had. Its been fine slicing sandwich bread, though I will say my skill needs to catch up to the knife (getting a straight slice took a couple of tries, but I attribute that my my own inexperience).
The shears have been unexpectedly handy. Since they have a place in the block, they're easily accessible and you don't have to dig through a drawer on the other side of the kitchen to find them. Incredibly sharp too, cut through everything I've come across with relative ease.
As long as you treat the blades well they will stay nice and sharp. Sharpening with the honing steel takes a bit of practice (I was definitely intimidated by it at first) but its a quick and easy way to keep the set sharp. For those of us who hadn't really used one before its a fun way to impress friends who came for dinner
