Thanksgiving means big family get-togethers, and that means a lot of cooking, which in turn means a lot of prep work. Many incentive winners who find themselves spending a lot of time with their knives are sure to be thinking about getting new and better ones — even moving up to some serious, professional-grade cutlery.

The Wüsthof Classic line, made in Germany, features precision-forged blades made from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel, a full tang, and triple-riveted synthetic handles.

The Wüsthof Classic 7 Piece Cutlery Set with Wood Block, available from Power Sales, has everything you need, including an 8-inch cook's knife, 8-inch bread knife, 6-inch utility knife, and 3.5-inch paring knife, as well as a 9-inch honing steel, kitchen shears, and a thirteen-slot wood storage block. It retails for $299.
