I can’t explain to you how excited I am for this giveaway. As I mentioned in my post about Kitchen stuff I don’t want to be without, Wüsthof is my favorite knife manufacturer. The balance of the blades, the shape of the handle, and the quality of the steel–Wüsthof has it mastered. And I refer to their Classic IKON line as the “Rolls-Royce of cook’s knives”. That’s why I was so jazzed when our friends over at Wüsthof hooked us up with a giveaway for all of you.

Just in time for the holidays, we’re gonna hook one lucky reader up with the Wüsthof Classic IKON 2-Piece Carving Set. Check it.

Just imagine carving your Thanksgiving turkey, table side, wielding these gorgeous knives. It almost brings a tear to my eye on your behalf! But in case you’re forgoing the turkey this year and don’t see a lot of opportunity to carve, here are some other ways to use this carving knife:

• the design and razor-sharp edge works great for sushi
• a knife like this slices through tomatoes and other potentially soft foods with incredible ease
• think all meat–roasts, steaks, fish filets and chicken, etc.

So here’s the deal: One winner will receive the carving set featured above (a $275 value!). Enter the giveaway using the Rafflecopter widget below. Easy peasy, so get as many entries as you can to up your chances. Contest ends this Thursday night (Oct. 24th) and the winner will be announced Friday. Good luck, e’rbody!

    How do you sharpen your knives? We have some Cutco ones that I can mail in to be sharpened by the manufacturer, but I don’t know what to do with our Wusthof ones. thanks!

    • Hi LJ! I actually use a whetstone to sharpen my knives, and it brings them right back to factory quality. I’m actually working on a few posts about proper knife care, including sharpening, which I’ll be posting next month. Keep your eyes peeled, it sounds like they’ll be of interest to you as it seems you’ve invested in some exceptional cutlery.

A reader recently asked me if I’m starting to fully embrace traditional style and whether we still consider our house to be a “modern Colonial” and why. It was a really great question and so timely — I had really just been thinking about my approach to this home and how my style has changed […]
