Wusthof

A family company since 1814

Large parts of Europe were still under the grip of the Napoleonic Wars when Johann Abraham Wüsthof founded his ‘Shears factory, steel and iron works’ in 1814. Calling it a factory was as optimistic as the business itself proved to be: our company founder and his apprentice toiled away in this so-called ‘factory’ (actually a cellar) making scissors, day in, day out. However, Johann Wüsthof's optimism was soon to pay off and the company grew and gained greater recognition, not least thanks to his three sons, who all learned their father’s trade.

One of the sons, Eduard Wüsthof, eventually took over the factory and expanded the range to include no fewer than 1,200 models of various handmade pocket, bread, vegetable and butcher's knives. The first overseas business trip was taken in 1881 by his brother Robert, who was in charge of business management.
