As a chef's knife with a wide blade, it is a remarkably powerful tool which is inspiring and easy to use when preparing and plating fresh food. Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating: the DLC-coated blade is the gold standard on the knife market. Thanks to the lotus effect, it glides almost effortlessly through hard and soft ingredients and is also extremely durable and scratch resistant.

Removing bones and skinning meat in a professional way: thanks to the sturdy workmanship and the easily manoeuvrable, extremely sharp blade with a pointed tip, the Boning Knife is ideal for removing bones or for skinning meat and poultry. Tendons and fat can also be removed easily so it is your ideal companion when it comes to meat preparation. For professional carving in the kitchen or at the table we recommend our Carving Set.
Ceramic sharpening rod for dull to moderately sharp knives. The ceramic surface ensures exceptional sharpening of the blade: with just a few steps you can achieve the desired result. Ceramic Steels are available in fine and standard grit. As these rods remove a tiny amount of metal from the knife, we recommend an additional WÜSTHOF Honing Steel for daily or weekly resharpening.
The Chinese blade shape with a new look and in WÜSTHOF quality: the Chai Dao combines the shape of a Santoku with that of a Chinese chopping knife. However, it adopts not only the form, but also the functionalities of the two models. Thanks to the slightly curved shape of the blade, the Chai Dao is suitable for both cutting and chopping, especially for a fluid rock-chop. As this knife is particularly finely ground towards the cutting edge it should not be used for chopping bones; instead we recommend our European Cleaver or Butchers Knife.

A well-designed cutting board with a crumb catcher. The stable cutting base is a huge benefit, particularly when slicing bread and rolls. Crumbs fall through the heat-treated beech slats directly into the crumb catcher, which can then easily be emptied.

The easiest way to sharpen knives and to keep them sharp. This 2-stage pull-through, V-shaped Knife Sharpener with tungsten and ceramic steels is particularly suitable for those who do not feel comfortable using Sharpening Steels or Whetstones. With this Sharpener, the knife is simply drawn through the guiding notches a few times - the notch with tungsten steel is used for coarser sharpening (for blunt blades) while the ceramic notch is for fine sharpening (for coarsely sharpened or moderately-sharp blades) – and results are quickly achieved.
A Magnetic Rack for the storage and display of your knives. The Magnetic Rack can be attached to the wall or to tiles. Two extra-strong magnets hold the knives safely and save space. WÜSTHOF Magnetic Racks are available in various lengths and materials.
A small, versatile knife with slim, powerful blade and extremely sharp plain edge (the technical term for the cutting part of the blade). Our Paring Knife is ideal for precisely chopping smaller ingredients such as onions and herbs. It is also the perfect tool for peeling, chopping and carving fruit and vegetables. With its pointed blade it is also used for larding. Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating: the DLC-coated blade is the gold standard on the knife market. Thanks to the lotus effect, it glides almost effortlessly through hard and soft ingredients and is also extremely durable and scratch resistant.

What a cook’s knife is for European kitchens, the Santoku is for Japan and the whole of Asia: so versatile in shape, weight and edge that it can be used for mincing and chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit as well as for preparing fish and meat. The sharp blade of a Santoku allows anything from regular to wafer-thin cuts - it is therefore now indispensable in kitchens all around the world.

Anyone wanting the best for their knives, their high-quality Chopping Board and for their eyes too doesn’t have to make compromises with their cutting board supports. Made of sustainable natural fibres, our Cutting Board Support offers protection for both blade and wood, is dishwasher-safe and can easily be replaced if necessary.
Honing Steel for exceptional honing of your knives. Even high-quality knives, such as those made by WÜSTHOF, gradually dull due to use: to compensate, a honing steel should be used regularly. A few strokes of both sides of the knife over the sharpening steel will help you to maintain the sharpness of a good blade. We recommend using a Diamond Steel or a Ceramic Steel to restore the sharpness of particularly blunt knives.
Ideal for cutting clean slices through as many different ingredients as possible: for large fruits and vegetables, meat or a smooth cut through cakes, pies and breads, the outwardly-curved, serrated edge of the Super Slicer blade allows for very fine cuts and prevents the foodstuffs from tearing or crumbling.
A sharpening stone for a particularly gentle way of honing and sharpening your knives. WÜSTHOF Whetstones consist of a combination of different high-quality, abrasive grits. The stones have two sides – one with a fine grit and one coarse. The coarse side is used to smooth off any unevenness while the finer grit is used to hone and sharpen your knife.We recommend the Whetstone Holder, which guarantees even more stability, to accompany the Whetstone.
