MAKE EACH AND EVERY MOMENT AN EXPERIENCE.
Aeon is WÜSTHOF’s most exclusive series to date, with only 1,500 pieces available worldwide for each knife in the series. The exquisite handles are crafted from 3,249-year-old Bog Oak, each with its own certificate of authenticity. While the variances in wood tone and grain make every Aeon knife an individual piece of art, the curved handle design and tapered end create an undeniable elegance that is a pleasure to hold. Authenticated by the International Chemical Analysis Inc. in Florida, USA, who, thanks to carbon dating, can confirm that the wood used by WÜSTHOF is 3,249 years old, therefore dating back to the end of the Bronze Age and the start of the Iron Age.
As a contrast to the millennia-old oak, a highly advanced DLC (Diamond-Like-Carbon) coating has been applied to the blades - a technique that is used in both the aviation and motorsport industries. The black surface (amorphous carbon) is created by transforming steel using hot carbon and hydrogen gas. This ensures incredible strength and durability. With Aeon, the DLC coating almost doubles the surface strength from 58° to 104° HRC without the steel becoming brittle. This not only results in the black blade, but also creates a high level of resistance to scratching and sliding while cutting ingredients. Strong acids, alkalis, brines, extreme temperatures and corrosion can’t harm the blade. The limited edition collection includes a Cook’s Knife (20 cm) and a Super Slicer (26 cm) to handle all culinary tasks, manufactured entirely in Solingen, Germany.
The Aeon 7” Hollow Ground Santoku is Wüsthof’s most unique blade shape specifically designed to complement the other two pieces in the Aeon series. As a mix between a Chai Dao, traditional santoku, and cook’s knife; the Aeon Santoku is a true blend between Japanese and German design. With its versatile shape, weight and edge, the blade’s wide curved belly creates the perfect rocking motion for chopping, slicing and mincing meats, seafood, vegetables and small herbs. Featuring a hollow ground edge, the dimples on the knife create small air pockets allowing food to easily slide away from the blade. The extremely sharp edge of the knife allows regular cuts to wafer-thin slices for all cutting techniques and food preparation tasks- an indispensable knife in any kitchen.
The Aeon series is an authentic masterpiece of exquisite craftsmanship and state-of-the-art technology, a timeless collector’s piece for those who truly enjoy cooking.
