Whether you’re hosting a casual summer get-together with friends or a relaxed family evening, with Amici you can enjoy culinary experiences with a Mediterranean spirit.

WÜSTHOF COLLECTION 1814
AMICI 1814 – SUPERIOR KNIFE CRAFTSMANSHIP MEETS ITALIAN FLAIR!

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 PERFORMER
THE BREAD KNIFE

WÜSTHOF presented the new Performer series, the perfect knives for multi-talented performers in the kitchen, last October. In everyday life, we may be challenged on many levels, meeting demands and personal requirements with flexibility and efficiency. 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.

PACKAGING RELAUNCH
New design – cutting edge packaging!

Knives and packaging as exceptionally attractive as ours mean that you can enjoy a feast for your eyes every time you prepare and plate food! From July 2020, everyone who treats themselves to a new WÜSTHOF Cook’s Knife will benefit from a little added bonus: our newly designed, eye-catching logo – an unmistakable seal of quality – is now on every blade.

And that's not all - our new packaging will spark anticipation for your next WÜSTHOF moment even while you’re shopping! We’ll be using our new high-quality, transparent packaging and elegant slipcase boxes to present our knives from now on. Read more in our press release (attached).

LOGO RELAUNCH
The New WÜSTHOF Design – Now on all Knives and Packaging

WÜSTHOF is upgrading its packaging concept to create more transparency in the warehouse and at the point of sale. At the beginning of July 2020 we will have successfully completed the refreshing process of changing our logo and will now produce all knives with the newly designed logo on the blade. At the same time we are using the opportunity to change the entire packaging concept.

With a new, high-quality and sophisticated packaging system, we are supporting retailers with their greatest strengths – customer consultation and the physical buying experience of selecting the ideal handle, suitable weight or the right balance.
