The secret to enticing charcuterie boards and cheese plates is in finding balance between small finger foods. Picture a towering jumble of meat sticks alongside a delicate stack of pickle spears nestled between roughly hewn cheese squares. Hungry, yet?

The magic of these snack boards is all in the prep. While you might use a chef's knife to slice through a big block of cheddar, you'll need something smaller if you want to make fine cuts or take a shot at carving a carrot rose. That's where the Wüsthof 3-Piece Gourmet Utility Set comes in handy. It includes a 3-inch paring knife, 4.5-inch utility knife, and kitchen shears, so you can trim carrot sticks and chop dried fruit. And best of all, it is only $25 on Amazon right now, a savings of 70%.

Made with stainless steel blades and plastic handles, the knives are lightweight and easy to maneuver for fine cuts on soft cheeses or turning radishes into thin rounds. The shears, which come apart for cleaning, can snip bacon into bite-sized pieces or slice up prosciutto.

Cooks have been using Wüsthof's German-style knives for more than two centuries. In fact, fans often have more than one knife from the trusted brand in their block.

"I have only recently discovered Wüsthof knives and am trying to slowly replace all the knives in my kitchen because they are very sharp and stay sharp a long time," wrote one reviewer. "The kitchen shears are sharp, sturdy, and very easy to clean because they come apart to wash."

Amazon shoppers also noted that the knives keep an edge well and are sharp out of the package. One said, "[Wüsthof] knives are always a great choice. I have about a dozen or more. I wanted to retire a few with scratched plastic handles. These are the ones I go for first every single day. They are a nice quality, fit your hand comfortably, and they're easy to keep sharp (in my knife block)."

The sturdy paring and utility knife will make short work of vegetables and meat for your platters, and you'll also reach for them to peel fruit, slice garlic, and core tomatoes. You also might find yourself grabbing the kitchen shears to snip herbs, cut noodles, and slice pizza.
