200 years of Wüsthof

Wüsthof was founded 200 years ago and to mark this special occasion, they are celebrating in style!

It is not without reason that Wüsthof is a leading brand name in kitchen knives and many other accessories. Two hundred years ago, in 1814, Johann Wilhelm Wüsthof started his manufacturing business that would later grow into one of the most prominent companies in the world of kitchen knives. All Wüsthof knives feature the distinctive trident logo, which was registered as a trade mark as far back as 1895. As a symbol of design and exclusivity, it is legally protected in nearly every country in the world. Wüsthof is continuing to innovate. In a state-of-the-art factory, Wüsthof employs the latest technology to produce top-grade products. Today, Wüsthof knives are available in more than 90 countries worldwide.

Special Anniversary Knife
More than 400 employees work tirelessly day in and day out to ensure that the German city of Solingen continues to deserve the title of ‘the knife capital of the world’. Every year, more than two million knives are produced by Wüsthof. This year, they have produced a unique limited edition anniversary chef's knife which is manufactured from carbon steel and palisander wood and crafted in the traditional way. This unique knife comes festively packed in a gift box.

Wüsthof knives

A good set of knives are essential for every chef. Without them, we can't do any of the cutting, trimming and shaping of ingredients that is an integral part of food preparation.

They are so important that professional chefs carry their own personal portfolio of knives. Sharpness is critical, so too is matching the correct tool to the job.

We believe in having a few basic knives in your kitchen. They are the chefs knife, bread knife, vegetable knife, tomato knife and filleting knife.  Also important is a steel, to keep them sharp and at their best.

Our knives of choice are by Wüsthof. The name Wüsthof first appeared as a factory in the records of the Duchy of Berg in 1814. It was in that year that the family's ancestor, Abraham Wüsthof, founded his "factory for fine steel wares", which is now known as the Dreizackwerk. The business has remained in the family ever since. Over the past 200 years, their products have established a reputation above all for their quality and functionality. Wüsthof is recognised worldwide as a specialist in outstanding knives.

We are proud to have Wüsthof as a partner of Amsterdam Flavours.
