Fish Fillet Knives:

Sporting a long and extraordinarily thin and flexible blade that is razor-sharp and tapers at the end to a very pointy edge, Wusthof's new Fish Fillet knives flawlessly and effortlessly slice through small and large fish to create well-proportioned and precise fillets.

The new Outdoors Collection offers a complete three-tiered assortment of precision-forged and laser stamped Fish Fillet knives to suit sports fishermen at every price level.

At the premium end, the new precision-forged, full-tang Grand Prix II 7-inch Fish Fillet with Sheath (Model 4625WS - $89.99 suggested retail) is crafted in 5 different colored handles: Black, Red, Green, Yellow and Blue. The knife comes complete with a protective sheath crafted in smooth black leather. Grand Prix II knives are expertly forged from a single piece of high carbon stainless steel that extends through the length of the handle. The knives also feature Wusthof's signature bolster design, which ensures superior balance, heft and weight. The molded and slip-resistant handle feels comfortable and provides a sure grip.

The new and moderately priced Gourmet 7-inch Fish Fillet with Sheath (Model 4628WS - $59.99 suggested retail) features a precision-stamped blade crafted in Wusthof's factory in Solingen, Germany's "cutlery capital." Well-balanced and durable, Gourmet knives are made of a high-carbon stainless steel that resists rusting and staining, facilitates sharpening and holds its edge. The high-impact Gourmet black handle is seamlessly attached to the blades with triple rivets for a totally hygienic and secure fit.

The high-carbon, stain-resistant alloy engineered for SilverPoint II ensures a long-lasting edge and the ability to sharpen easily. The easy-care black handles have an ergonomic shape for comfort and a slip-resistant, pebble grain finish.

Hunting Knives:

Hunters of small and large game now have the opportunity to use well-designed, expertly crafted and ruggedly styled knives from Wusthof, a global leader in premium cutlery for nearly 200 years.

Wusthof's new 4.5-inch Fixed Blade Hunting Knife with Sheath (Model 2895 - $69.99 suggested retail) and new 4-inch Folding Hunting Knife with Sheath (Model 289 - $69.99 suggested retail) are precision-stamped from a high-carbon stainless steel that resists staining and rusting. Made in Germany, the sharp blades start wide at the heel and taper to a fine point at the edge to facilitate cutting with minimum effort. Chunky, molded black handles with grey accents are purposely designed to help prevent slipping and ensure a comfortable and secure grip.


To keep the new fishing and hunting knives in peak performance, the new Wusthof Outdoor Collection includes two options in sharpening tools: the foolproof 2-Stage Handheld Sharpener (Model 2922-7 - $19.99 suggested retail), and the traditional-style Whetstone Sharpener (Model 4450 - $59.99 suggested retail).

The lightweight and compact Wusthof 2-Stage Handheld Sharpener features two different pre-set carbide (coarse) and ceramic (fine) notches to quickly and easily sharpen straight edge, serrated and scalloped edge knives in 1-3 easy strokes (use the fine notch only for serrated and scalloped edge knives). Fashioned in black with grey accents, the 2-Stage Handheld Sharpener includes a soft grip handle for comfort and control.

The Wusthof Whetstone provides an effective and professional way to get the edge of knives back in shape. The small rectangular stone that is inside the wooden carrying case has two sides - coarse grit and fine grit. As the name of the sharpener implies, water is required for sharpening knives using this time-honored, low-tech method.


All Wusthof knives are crafted in Solingen, Germany -- Wusthof-Trident's manufacturing and headquarters base since the company's founding more than 175 years ago. A family-owned and managed company with a rich heritage, the first Wusthof factory was listed as early as 1814 in official documents of the Duchy of Berg.
