A wonderful gift and terrific addition to the kitchen, this set of German-made cutlery includes a paring knife and kitchen shears from the Wüsthof Gourmet line. This is a really exceptional deal for the superb-quality stainless-steel construction that will last through years of use.

Ideal for delicate or intricate cutting, the paring knife is cut from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, using lasers for an ultra-precise cutting edge. Full tang extends through traditionally styled handles, triple-riveted for amazing strength. Advanced grinding and polishing procedures produce a blade perfectly tapered from tip to bolster. Use it for peeling vegetables or fruit, trimming meats or cutting garnishes.

Kitchen shears are useful for a variety of tasks in the kitchen. Whether you’re dividing up a whole chicken or just cutting out another favorite recipe, these shears will do the job. Use these essential kitchen helpers for snipping herbs, cutting flowers or twine. Shears have a mechanism that allows them to detach for easy cleaning.

Buy Shears Only - Not the knife you're hoping!
The shears seem to be of decent quality but the paring knife is very disappointing - especially for being under the Wusthof brand. I checked each piece and neither indicate country of origin, and although the description on the web site says ""Made in Germany"", perhaps that is a general statement regarding the Wusthof brand of knives and not about this set -- because I would swear the knife is made in China. Very flimsy and so flimsy and low quality I immediately threw it in the utility drawer when I opened the package -- not for my knife block. Then again, it was VERY inexpensive. Next time I would purchase a set of Wusthof kitchen shears separately not in this set

"Much Better than brand ""X""!!"
I have used other kitchen shears and find them to be a necessary tool in my kitchen. However, these W�sthof� Gourmet Shear and Paring Knife Set have put the others I have used to shame! They are sharper and lighter and less expensive than the good ""brand X"" shears I have used in the past and thought were so good. The paring knife is very sharp, too, and maintains its edge well

The right took for the right job!!
What a deal!! The quality is par none!! I love having the right tool for the right job while cooking. It's the simple things that make the difference!!

Bought several sets as gifts, everyone loved them. I have a paring knife that I bought on its own by this same company and I loved it so much that I figured that I would try this set, they are awesome and such a great value
December 28, 2012
Great Value
This set is such a great value. Both shears and paring knife are super sharp, the paring knife quickly became ""the one a grab"" for small jobs. And having an extra pair of shears is so handy, how many times do you get raw meat on the pair in the butcher block, and then find yourself wishing for a spare pair to use for something else

Not as pictured
The shears lack the notch in the blade which shows clearly in the picture. It is a useful feature whose absence is regretted.

Great knives
Love these knives. They are worth the purchase!
June 4, 2014
Ok quality.
I was shopping for shears of another brand name but the brand didn't offer the shears sold separately. I purchased these. The shears are alright and useable, but the knife will probably never be taken out of the drawer.

Wüsthof is a quality product
I recently treated myself to a Wüsthof Kitchen Shear and Paring Knife Set. And both were immediately the item I reach for (over all those I already owned) when I need shears or a paring knife in the kitchen. The superior quality shines through, making simple kitchen chores so much easier. Last Christmas I gave several of these sets to some of our grandchildren who were setting up their own households. I can give myself a pat on the back for supplying them with such fine tools, especially now that I have used a set of them myself and witnessed the difference.

How does the set come packaged? Do they come boxed?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I believe that it was plastic packaged together.
Were these items made in Germany or China?
Diana R on Oct 25, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Mine are stamped Germany. I have had this set for over a year and still love them both.
What is the size of the knife?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I measured the blade at 3 1/8"", and the total length is 7""
is this a 4" no stain pairing knife?
A shopper on Nov 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: All metal knives can't be stained; metal is nonporous so no stain can soaked in, even squid ink. If there are nasty residues, they can always be washed off, ASAP preferably.
How can I find out if this product is available in a store?
Anne on Oct 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This set is sold both in stores & online. To check availability at your nearest store call us at
