Since 1814 WÜSTHOF has set the standard for designing and manufacturing precision-forged knives.

WÜSTHOF knives are forged from a single blank of high carbon no-stain steel, a specially alloyed steel. WÜSTHOF knives are created using 40 manufacturing steps from forging to tempering, to grinding and polishing. Quality made in Solingen – Germany.

WÜSTHOF'S Precision Edge Technology, PEtec, offers superior blade sharpness and has set the new standard for modern cutlery.

Conventionally hand-sharpened knives are plagued by irregularities that diminish the blade’s sharpness and overall performance. Through a proprietary process inclusive of computer-controlled robotics, WÜSTHOF'S PEtec yields a smoother, more refined edge with dramatically increased sharpness and sharpness retention along the entire length of the blade. The result is a knife with a definitive advantage for every home or professional chef.
