[Canadian Tire] Wusthof Classic 14 piece Knife Set - $389.93 Clearance - Nationwide

Canadian Tire has this listed as $1199 regular, which is inflated as per the norm from CT, but this set still typically goes for 700-800, so this is still a really good deal for one of their higher end lines. Excellent knives, I already have a set or I'd jump on this instantly. Stores that don't have stock still show regular price, Checked a few stores in GTA that had stock and a couple in Edmonton, both show lower price so I'm calling this nationwide unless anyone finds otherwise.

Cheers!

Good price for those who want / need the entire set.

Most people would probably be fine with 2 knives - chef and paring. I got 8" classic chef from Sears last year, it was about $60 on clearance. Paring knife is 4" gourmet, its thin light blade is great and the knife won't be expensive to replace when it wears out.

Yeah, I got a set w. block from their clearance last year too. This one includes the steak knives and whatnot as well. This might not be QUITE as good a deal as that one, but there's more stock spread around now.

You get what you pay for. Henckels International(cheap line) are all made in China.

No reason to believe these Wusthof's are not made in Germany.

I couldn't tell you if all of the Wusthof lines are made in Germany, but the forged ones are I believe, and the Classic line is forged.

Shows $800 in the Richmond BC CT, and $600 in one of the Vancouver CT.

EDIT: Burnaby CT shows $389 and there's 2 left.

I set mine to Burnaby South and it shows the lower price, which store are you looking at?

Ya, if they are stamped I would assume China. Especially when you have a place like Canadian Tire, they usually aren't known to sell "fancy quality" things. Especially with their advertising practices it makes you wonder.

stop the madness. just go the the local restaurant supply store and buy the pro series tools. they're cheaper, better, and you don't end up with a bunch of knives you'll never use. Who uses a filleting knife often enough to actually own one? at the restaurant supply store: 8" chef's - $50, 3.5" paring - $30, steak knives- 6 x $6 is $36, sharpening/deburring steel - $50 = $166, plus a $50 bread knife. You don't need a block cluttering up your counter anyway.

Is Germany much better than Spain as well? Just saw a set of Zwilling from Spain.

I keep reading threads about how everyone should have a pairing knife. I use my filet knife a lot more than the pairing knife. I only really use 4 knives. Chef's, filet, bread and steak knives.

Good steel and good edge profile. Shame about the old-fashioned full-length bolster that gets in the way of proper sharpening, the redundant knives (both cook's and Santoku, and multiple utility knives) and the undersized bread and carving knives. Their Ikon line is excellent design overall, but overpriced. I agree with those who say you really should just get good examples of the few knives you'll actually use, get a decent sharpening steel, and whatever block you like to store them (I like the bamboo in-drawer blocks, about $35 on Amazon, or a magentic bar (just not bare steel - I'd cover it with fabric or at least tape)). I kind of take offense to these block sets that attempt to look like a great deal by stuffing them with things you don't need and won't use, but that's me. If you really want a block and don't mind the full-length bolster, this is a fine choice and it's the best knife CT sells.
