ED. WÜSTHOF DREIZACKWERK of Solingen, Germany, is one of the world's leading manufacturers of quality cutlery.
As one of the oldest companies located in a city with a centuries old cutlery heritage, the WÜSTHOF factory made its appearance in official documents in 1814. As its reputation as a symbol of quality grew, the Trident logo (Legendary Spear of Neptune) was registered with the Berlin Imperial Patent Office in 1895.
Today, just as it began, Ed. Wüsthof Dreizackwerk (The Trident Factory) proudly operates under sole ownership of the WÜSTHOF family. Traditions born nearly two centuries ago are honored today as they painstakingly manufacture the world's highest quality, precision forged knives.
