Pining After New Knives? Wüsthof's Sharp New Collection Is a Pretty Good Deal

We asked you last week to tell us what the one kitchen utensil or gadget you can't live without. Most of you agreed—you must have a nice chef's knife. Now you have another option with a new six-piece set from Wüsthof.

The Precision Knife Collection has slanted bolsters that give it a slightly different look than other blades from the German company. And it's not a bad deal. $500 for a 3.5-inch paring knife, 8-inch chef's, 9-inch bread, honing steel, kitchen sheers, and storage block? Considering you can spend almost that much on just one blade, that's pretty good investment for a set that will last you for years and years. And once you've sliced, minced, and diced with knives like these, you'll never look back. [Gear Patrol]
