General

WÜSTHOF is one of the few brands permitted to use the label “Made in Solingen” on our knives rather than the less restricted “Made in Germany.” Solingen, Germany is the steel manufacturing capital of the world and, as such, needed to take precautionary measures against fraudulent products bearing the prestigious name, “Solingen.” In 1938, Solingen became the only city in the world whose name is a registered trademark. To bear the name Solingen, all key manufacturing stages must have been processed and finished within Solingen, and the product must meet strict quality standards. This means that even cutlery manufactured entirely within Solingen’s town boundary may not be entitled to bear the name Solingen if it does not meet these required quality standards.

Some of our competitors use the label “Made in Germany,” which does not carry the same significance. We have the honor of labeling our products “Made in Solingen.”

WÜSTHOF’s proprietary state-of-the-art technology incorporates a computer-controlled method for putting the edge on forged knives. Using laser-guided precision, our knives are 20% sharper with twice the edge retention. All forged knives are manufactured using PEtec.

We print two numbers on our blades, one is our item number and the other is the “run” number, so that we can identify knives that came from the same run in our factory. Some blades have a cross-hatch pattern on them instead of a run number. This is another way we code and identify blades.

This is our steel formula. All WÜSTHOF knives are created using a special alloy of high-carbon stain-free steel.

Forged knives go through over 40 steps in our factory to create the top quality blades WÜSTHOF has to offer. Forged knives include a bolster, which helps to balance the knife. Laser-cut blades go through 14 steps in our factory, and are more economically priced. They are lighter in weight, and do not have a bolster.

The most important knife in any kitchen is the cook’s knife, and after that, it depends on your own personal preferences when cooking.
