Wusthof is known the world over for its precision-forged knives intended for professional chefs and home cooking enthusiasts alike. The company was founded in 1814 and has been family owned and operated for seven generations. Wusthof’s knives are produced in a highly controlled 38-step process in its state-of-the-art production facilities located in Solingen, Germany, a region long famous for producing some of the best blades in the world. Wusthof’s blades are hand-forged from a single piece of stainless steel for maximum strength. The hand-polished blade is exactingly calibrated to be hard enough to resist dulling yet soft enough to take a keen edge when it's honed or sharpened.
A favorite in professional kitchens around the world, the Wusthof Classic series represents two centuries of Wusthof craftsmanship and includes an array of quality knives with a classic design. The knives are completely drop forged from one piece of high-carbon stainless steel alloy in Wusthof’s Solingen, Germany factory. The steel alloy provides for a razor-sharp edge and is stain, rust and corrosion resistant. The triple-riveted handles were designed in consultation with professional chefs to combine durability, comfort and classic style. This series features a precision full bolster and full tang. Each knife is carefully hand-honed and weighted for ultimate sharpness and performance.
