We’ve talked before about the qualities of a good knife – full tang, quality materials, etc. Wüsthof way exceeds quality standards, and totally stands behind their work. Don’t just take our word for it, though; well-known chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Martha Stewart, and Emeril Lagasse, use Wusthof knives. And you’ll find Wüsthof in the hands of many international culinary teams as well.
By the way, Wüsthof also produces knife blocks, scissors, and many other kitchen tools, which it distributes worldwide.
Nowadays, it’s difficult to find a lot of businesses that won’t settle for just satisfactory. One of the reasons we’re big fans of Wüsthof is that their long-standing values and tradition shine through in the products they create.
