The excellent pieces of cutlery featured in the 16-piece Silverpoint II Knife Block Set have all been forged in Wusthof’s masterful tradition. Utilizing a single blank of high-carbon stainless steel, each utensil has been precision-forged using patented laser-guided technology to achieve the sharpest and cleanest cut. Wusthof’s knives and utensils alike have been crafted using not only the highest-quality steel, but the most durable and robust polymers have been employed in the construction of the ergonomic, slip-resistant handles. Included in this set are the following models in Wusthof’s Silverpoint II line:
