NOT ALL KNIVES ARE THE SAME
Don't buy blind
When buying their first knife, most people are amazed at the number of different options. Different blade shapes, lengths, sizes, grinds and handles can make the choice a little tricky. In this series, we would like to show you which knife is suitable for which task and what you should pay attention to when purchasing. Let's go:
In addition to the appropriate blade length and the type of knife, the shape of the handle plays an extremely important role. The handle must fit your hand so that you can guide the knife safely and correctly. If you like the feel of wood, the Crafter series might be suit-able for you. Perhaps a finely curved handle without finger grooves? Then maybe the Epicure series. And for those who prefer a timeless look, we have our Classic series. As well as liking the look of the knife, the feel of the handle in your hand is also important. That's why we recommend that you visit a specialist dealer and hold the knife before you buy it or pop in to our WÜSTHOF Shop, located alongside our factory in Solingen.
Which knife for which task?
As well as our distinct series, we also offer a large selection of different types of blade: plain, dimpled or serrated edge (choose from convex, concave or micro-serrated), straight, curved, narrow, extra wide or flexible - your choice goes on and on.
This series will help you find your way around our large range - it explains each knife in the collection and what it is best used for:
