WÜSTHOF Amici 1814 is proud to present extraordinary knife craftsmanship enhanced by the magnificent botanical diversity of Italy. Dario Cortini, a Master Engraver from Northern Italy, has created elaborate, detailed designs (inspired by traditional artistic Florentine engravings) for the blade. The blade combines perfectly with the beautiful grain of the Calabrian olive wood handle. As a result, this elegant work of art exudes a natural energy. There are only 1,814 unique, signed pieces. The WÜSTHOF Collection 1814 is inspired by the date that Johann Abraham Wüsthof founded the company.
WÜSTHOF presented the new Performer series, the perfect knives for multi-talented performers in the kitchen, last October.

Today, preparing and plating are activities that we perform quite consciously, seeing them as relaxing, almost meditative actions. At home, we like to surround ourselves with fine, high-quality items that we can depend on both in our everyday life and for special occasions.
