Wüsthof Knives have always held a Special Place in my
Heart and Homes.
They have been made is Solingen, Germany for over 200 years and My Paternal Grandfather was from Solingen, so everyone in the family received Wüsthof Knives as presents and were loved and cared for by every household in our family.
The first record of Wusthof as a company can be found in documents in the Duchy of Berg that refer to the Wusthof factory dating back to 1814 in the town of Solingen, Germany. The name Wusthof is the last name of the founder. The company continues to be a family owned business, currently in the 7th generation of the Wusthof family tradition. With their name on the product, quality is a must. The family name continues to be the reason for such high quality. Every generation wants to out perform the last in quality and excellence.
An example of the proud tradition of the Wusthof name is Wolfgang Wusthof’s story of expanding the business. In 1960 Wusthof was nearly unknown in North America. Wolfgang spent the 1960’s and 1970’s flying to the USA with a briefcase full of knives (something you cannot do these days) and riding from town to town by bus introducing the USA and Canada to the wonder of Wusthof. It was slow going at first, but quality speaks for itself and Wusthof won the hearts and esteem of chefs and those who aspire to fine cuisine everywhere.
