The Obvious Choice: Wüsthof Knives

Wielding a Wüsthof is a rite of passage for budding home chefs, and we want to be right there with you when you discover the edge of the sharpest tool in Solingen.

Family-owned for seven generations, few knife brands carry as rich a history or as rock-solid a reputation as Wüsthof. Over 200 years ago, Wüsthof was founded in Solingen, Germany—known as “the city of blades”—and each Wüsthof knife is still crafted there today. Wüsthof is unique in that it offers everything from entry-level fundamentals to professional-grade chef’s knives, which makes it an obvious choice for those graduating from their hand-me-down cutlery to something a bit more advanced.

As one of our most popular and highly rated kitchen knife brands, Wüsthof comes highly recommended here at Sur La Table. Whether you’re looking for the legendary Wüsthof chef’s knife or want to upgrade to a set of high-quality Wüsthof steak knives, we’ve got the perfect option for your needs. Regardless of which Wüsthof knife you choose, you can count on the brand’s exclusive Precision Edge Technology, which ensures superior blade sharpness and creates a smoother, more refined edge that brings a massive advantage in virtually all cutting applications.

Sharp knives are safer and more effective, so don’t skimp on your sharpener (bonus a Wüsthof knife sharpener is one of the best you can buy). Beginners will want to try a handheld or electric sharpener as opposed to a steel or a whetstone, as they have pre-set angles that simplify the process.

Meet the Wüsthof Chef Knife

Perhaps the most famous category of cutlery to come from the Wüsthof portfolio is their trusted array of chef’s knives. The ideal choice for the budding home chef looking for a daily go-to, a 6- or 8-inch Wüsthof chef’s knife is one of those kitchen utensils that you’ll keep in your arsenal for decades, taking with you from kitchen to kitchen, culinary adventure to culinary adventure. Wüsthof also makes premium-quality santoku knives, which make worthy considerations for your day-to-day cooking knife, as well as paring, utility, bread, steak and fish knives.
