The official WÜSTHOF website
WÜSTHOF produces a range of chef’s knives with different blade lengths and handle sizes. For each of these, the blade and handle are perfectly matched and well balanced.
In order to enjoy using your WÜSTHOF knife for longer, you need the right blade length as well as a handle shape and material that suits your hand. When buying a knife in our WÜSTHOF store in Solingen, one of our specialists can offer detailed advice.
When you hold samples of the various knife series in your hand, you will immediately know which series you feel comfortable with and which knives fit particularly well in your hand.
The following pointers will help you find your ideal WÜSTHOF knife:
• start by choosing the handle you like best,
• the blades of most cook's knives are almost identical; a 20 cm blade is usually the most useful,
• full bolster or half bolster? We recommend that you visit your specialist dealer and try the feel of both in your hand before making your choice.
