Professional Quality
I bought this set because it seemed like a great value, and it sure is. I could have easily spent $200 on one knife but I got this set instead and I've been extremely happy with it. The knives are really sharp, have a perfect weight and balance and cut like a dream. These are quality knives and I love that they're made in Germany as well. The steak knives that come with the set are incredible, I've never used such a great steak knife before. I've thrown out all my other knives and am thrilled with these

Not what I expected
I thought I was getting a good deal for my money. I was mistaken. I have only had the knives a week and they are already starting to shows signs of rusting. Also one of the steak knives bent on me. They feel flimsy and cheaply made. I was surprised for Wusthof to make such a product.

Poor Quality
I ordered this set in July and am extremely disappointed. The knives are rusting already and I always hand wash and dry immediately. The block to keep them in is not really made to fit all the knives correctly and the steak knives are really flimsy. If I could return them and get my money back I would. Don't be taken in by the low price. They really are not worth it.

Tremendous value for the money
I was more than pleasantly surprised to find this knife set on sale on Black Friday so I jumped right on it. I'm familiar with the knife line and quite frankly, after reading the reviews, who cares if the wood block doesn't fit the knives perfectly. IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE QUALITY OF THE KNIVES. I'd be concerned if the purpose of my purchase was a well designed block. My priority was the knives.

Here's some possible solutions for those having issues with the block.

Option 1 - Upgrade your kitchen with a Epicurean magnetic knife holder (a seriously well designed holder). I don't see it listed on the website but I think the store will help you get one.

Option 2 - You can make a new block... it's more than a one afternoon project but doable if you want a precision fit block.

Option 3 - I'd complain if the knives DIDN'T fit in the slots but that's not the case. Live with the loose fit. The knives are protected and it's a nice presentation of the set. Don't sweat the small stuff and go cook something spectacular

"They're Sharp, but Feel Cheap"
These knives are okay. At a retail value of $500, i figured that they would feel more ""expensive"": heavy, sturdy, durable, etc., but the actually feel cheap. That said, they are sharp and cut quite well.

the block is a nice feature, but not all the knives fit in it properly. There is a slot for every knife, but some of the slots are way too big for the tiny paring knives

Terribly Cheap Quality
I have a wonderful set of Wusthof knives, and when I saw Sur Le Table's email offer for this set, I jumped on it for a gift. Unfortunately the knives weren't the same model, and these are incredibly cheap, light-weight, flimsy, and had to be re-gifted way downstream. I am so sorry I bought them. Wusthof shouldn't be making such a low-quality product

Very Poor Quality
I bought these the last time they were ""on special"" - thinking what a great price for this brand. I was deeply disappointed and their light weight defies how they are presented. I do wish I had read the reviews. The greatest misnomer is listing them as a $500 value - that is just not true. If you read this, read all the reviews and let them be your guide. You will be disappointed like most of us if you still make the purchase

Not for a Wusthoff customer
This set of knives is not for a regular Wusthoff customer. As other reviewers have noted the overall feeling of these knives is extremely light, unlike other Wusthoff knives we own. I purchased this set for a second home, but if I had to do it over again, I would not

Great Starter Set
I bought this set for my son's first apartment. We chose this for a couple of reasons. First, I use and love Wusthof knives at home so I knew that it was a reliable brand. Second, the value was unbeatable. It has every knife my son would need - the 6 steak knives were a definite plus. Third, each blade is incredibly sharp and the knives easy to hold

Great Value!
I received this knife set as a gift and am extremely pleased. The knives are very sharp and sturdy, in my opinion. I do agree that the slots on the knife block are very large, but I believe that means I can just put my other knives that are larger in these slots and keep my smaller knives (i.e. paring knife, bird's beak, etc) with guards in the drawer

"Stamped flex blades, not the classic forged blades"
These are not the classic forged blades that made Wusthof famous. these are Stamped steel, and the handles are not of the quality of other Wusthof or Henckels knives I already own. Reasonable for everyday use, but not the standard I expect from this brand. Returning for fewer knives from the higher end

Very disappointed
I need to check into returning this item. Knives are cheap, light weight and the steak knives have already begun to rust. My wife was quite upset with the price. I expected a lot more from Sur La Table and Wusthof. I thought i was getting a good deal- one day only etc. WRONG. This item does not match the quality I expect from either company

Light weight but very sharp
Yes, these are lightweight but what really counts? The blade of course! They are very sharp and strong. I have only had them for a few weeks but both my husband and I love them. Quality is very important to him....me too for that matter. If it passes his test I know it was a good choice. We bought them on sale so feel it was an excellent buy

We were disappointed
Maybe if we had read the advertisment more closely, my husband and I would not have been so surprised and disappointed. These knives do not match the quality of the Wusthof knives we have purchased before. I am sure that we will get much use from them, especially if we can sustain their sharpness, but their light weight gives then the feel of lesser quality product

Item #858167 / 18 pciece Wustof set
My rating of poor for all is because the holes / slots that house the knives do not fit the knives. They are way too big. Openings would take a Chef's knife and the knives expected to use these slots are paring size knives. Very, very poor...in my opinion. The price is good and Wustof is normally good quality but something happened with the kinife block. It is a disaster. Too bad.

poor quality
I own several Wusthof knives and love them so I bought this set as a Christmas gift for my daughter. I'm glad I opened the box to check them out before wrapping because I promptly returned them due to the extremely poor quality. I'm very surprised Wusthof would put their name on these cheaply made knives.

Great value knives
I have had these knives for over a year, and I have been extremely pleased with their performance so far. I have smaller hands, and a lot of the other heavier knife sets felt unwieldy in my hands, and then I found this set on sale. If you are looking for an extremely weighty set, this will not be the right match for you. But if you are looking for lighter weight yet very sharp knives, consider giving these a try, as I found the lighter weight allowed me to control them with precision since I was not struggling against a heavy knife. This set includes more knives than I actually need, but I have used all of them without any issues. I do wash the knives by hand and dry them just after, so they look as good as the day I brought them home. The only minor quibble I have is that the slots in the wooden block are not perfectly sized to fit each knife, but I guess that gives me placement options if I want to rearrange them. Even though they are lighter weight, I have no problems using the chef's knife to cut up things like kabocha squash, etc, and the steak knives do an amazing job cutting through things like butter

Cannot do 1 day without them!
I have had Wusthof for over 16 years and love them. They cut beautifully, feel good and hold up all those years. I once heard they are ""best for small hands."" Mine are small, but I do not know if it is limited to size of hands.
I give them as wedding gifts and otherwise

Great set for Great Price!
This is my first knife set and I have been really pleased with it so far. I needed a set that had everything (since I'm pretty much starting from scratch) and this block comes packed with every shape I could imagine.

I like the light-weight, sculpted handles, especially for my petite hands. I know there are more expensive knives out there, but these have been perfect for my needs: a great starter set to learn about all the different shapes, at a reasonable price. Don't tell my husband but I'm saving up for a Shun Santoku :-
