Wusthof Celebrates 200 Years of Knives
To keep a business running for two centuries the folks at Wusthof must be doing something very right. This family business has been a success from the start and it's practically the only medium-sized business of its kind to have shaped the cutlery industry as it has. Having developed from a small handicraft business into a successful international company, today Wusthof has become one of the leading manufacturers of quality goods in Germany. Their current range of knife specialties covers more than 350 different types of forged knives bearing the "Made in Germany/Solingen" hallmark.Wüsthof Knives: Uncompromising Quality
Founded in 1814 in Solingen, Germany's famous "City of Blades," Wüsthof - family-owned for seven generations and well-known for its precision-forged products - is a symbol of knife quality and tradition to distinguished chefs and home cooking enthusiasts worldwide.Poseidon Would be Proud
In 1895, Wüsthof patented a classic image as its logo: a circle containing a W-shaped trident, wielded in Greek mythology by the god Poseidon. That three-pronged symbol can still be seen on the knife handles of the Wüsthof Classic line, Wüsthof's flagship collection of full-tang, precision-forged, high-carbon stainless knives.
Extraordinary sharpness and power may be its message, but Wüsthof's three-pronged logo could also stand for three distinctive qualities that define the company's character and its products.Wüsthof is Workmanship
Wüsthof knives are manufactured by a team of 300 highly skilled workers in two state-of-the-art facilities in Solingen. Every Wüsthof knife is made from premium, high-carbon stainless steel that holds a razor-sharp edge. The manufacturing process involves 40 individual steps, and the most rigorous quality standards in the industry. The result is consistent, exceptional, uncompromising quality, guaranteed. Every Wüsthof product has a lifetime warranty against material and workmanship defects.Wüsthof is Environmental Awareness
A Wüsthof factory is a green factory. All cooling water is cleaned and processed, reducing consumption by 95%. All grinding mud is recycled, and so is all steel waste. Even noise pollution of surrounding neighborhoods is eliminated by cushioned bases beneath Wüsthof's cutlery forging units.
