The Gunter Wilhelm 12-piece Executive Chef set is the ideal set for the home owner or professional chef. It includes 2 sharpening steels, a 10-inch chef knife, butchers cleaver, 10 inch boning knife, Asian Cleaver, paring knife, Santoku knife, offset bread, meat carver and meat fork. In the beginning, knives were made from High Carbon steel. This was because High Carbon Steel was easy to sharpen and held an edge really well. The problem was that High Carbon would turn black quickly and was not attractive. The problem with Stainless Steel knives is that while they look great, they don t hold an edge and are almost impossible to sharpen. Then someone in Solingen Germany came up with an alloy which is the mixture of two steels, high carbon and stainless steel. This new alloy, called 440 was the answer to the problem. 440 hold an edge really well and sharpens easily while being very stain resistant. There are two basic kinds of knives in the world. The first is stamped where the knives are made from sheet metal stamping and then attach plastic or wood handles to the tang. Stamped knives have no bolster, and do not have the weight, balance and durability of Forged Style knives. Forged style knives are typically made from one block of steel and always have a Bolster. The Bolster is the large metal area joining the blade with the handle. Forged knives have better weight and balance than Stamped Knives. The best knives such as Gunter Wilhelm, are all of the forged style.
