If you really, really want to spoil someone (who enjoys being in the kitchen) this holiday season, then here’s a rather special gift: the Wusthof knife set. Wusthof knives are used by professional chefs the world over because of their solid feel and sharp edge. Each knife is forged in Germany from one piece of high carbon steel to ensure extraordinary sharpness and easy maintenance.

This 9-piece set is from their Classic range, and includes a peeling knife, utility knife, serrated edge knife, bread knife, carving fork, carving knife, chefs knife, sharpening steel and the very handy kitchen shears.  Then of course, the beautiful wooden knife block to store them in. The set & block is available at Chefs Warehouse for R4,800. Go on, spoil someone (or yourself) rotten.
