Main Partner of the International Jeunes Chefs Rôtisseurs Competition
Since 1814 Wüsthof has set the standard for designing and manufacturing precision-forged knives. Today the family business is in its seventh generation of ownership, under the management of Harald Wüsthof.
Wüsthof knives are manufactured by a skilled team of 300 dedicated workers in two state-of-the-art facilities in Solingen, Germany. Production follows strict rules in order to achieve the finest quality, whilst at the same time remaining environmentally friendly.
Today more than 350 forged knives are available in the Wüsthof range, along with cutting boards, knife blocks, kitchen tools, and scissors bearing the famous Trident logo. The logo, a symbol of form, function, and uncompromising quality, was registered at the Berlin Patent Office as early as 1895.
Wüsthof knives are both elegant and stylish

Note: although Wüsthof knives may occasionally be cleaned in a dishwasher, this can cause degradation of finish and excess heat can damage the handles. Hand washing is therefore recommended.
All Wüsthof knives are precision-forged from one piece of high quality steel to ensure outstanding performance and durability. Their extraordinary sharpness is easily maintained. The wide range of ergonomically-designed handles ensure that they are comfortable to use.
It is not surprising then to learn that Wüsthof knives are the cherisched tools of the world's most distinguished chefs and home cooking use.
