After spending hours preparing a pot roast or turkey, the last thing you want is a dull knife shredding it into withered piles on your carving board—presentation is almost as important as taste, after all. So before you start planning your holiday meals, consider picking up the Wüsthof Classic Two-Piece Carving Set. The Ina Garten-approved brand’s knife set usually costs $160, but it’s currently 15% off at Amazon.
The corrosion-resistant set comes with a high carbon stainless steel 8-inch carving knife and a 6-inch carving fork. The knife is crafted with Wüsthof’s precision edge technology that provides twice the edge retention compared to the brand’s previous models, meaning it’ll stay sharper for longer than the Wüsthof you currently own. And though it goes without saying that you should consistently sharpen your knives and hand wash them, the carving knife set includes a limited lifetime warranty in case you need a replacement.
To buy: $136 (originally $160); amazon.com
While the Classic Carving Knife Set features a hollow-edge knife that creates air pockets between the blade and the food, there’s also a more affordable option from the Wüsthof Gourmet line that features a straight-edge carving knife, a carving fork, and a bonus cutting board for $100.
The Classic Set has amassed great reviews from shoppers who love it for the knife’s balanced weight, sharp blade, and overall quality. One called it a “gorgeous and super sharp set that glides through roasts like butter,” and said it was “the best that money can buy.”
“Excellent set, nicely balanced weight,” a reviewer wrote. “[I] have been using this knife and fork so frequently—not sure how I managed in the kitchen without them! Flawless blade, fork, and handles.”
Pick up the professional knife set for only $136 before the holidays—and before these savings disappear.
