Williams-Sonoma and the famed German knife-maker have collaborated to create an exclusive Wüsthof Precision Knife Collection ($500) that are as versatile as they are affordable. Constructed with clean curves from high-carbon stainless steel and slip-resistant synthetic handles, these choppers fit nicely to the hand and accomodate a variety of grips. The set comes with an 8″ chef knife, a 3 1/2″ paring knife, a 9″ serrated bread knife, a honing steel, scissors, and a hardwood storage block, all for $500. Wüsthof’s Precision Edge Technology and the high carbon content give you an exceptionally sharp, true blade, which counterintuitively makes for a safer tool. Just keep your digits out of the way — or at least buy some gloves.
