Designed by a team of experienced WÜSTHOF artisans in Solingen, Germany, this masterpiece of a knife combines the long-lasting durability of our premium forged blades with the magnetic beauty of a centuries-old artform. The stunning artwork on the stainless-steel blade was created in collaboration with Dario Cortini, a virtuoso Italian artist and one of the world’s few master engravers. Cortini spearheaded the knife’s art direction at the internationally famous Bottega Incisioni C. Giovanelli in Brescia, Italy, which for over 60 years has been a workshop, school, and point of origin for master engravers across the globe.
The result is breathtakingly beautiful: A work of art for the senses, a collector’s item, and a workhorse for carving, slicing, and dicing in your kitchen.

Even without engraving, the production of the Amici 1814 blade is a real art that requires experience, expertise and inspiration. Production begins with the special WÜSTHOF steel; rust-resistant, hard and tough. It is shaped precisely in our forge and then hardened for daily use using our special process. Finally, the blade is ground and polished by hand by our experienced knife grinders, acquiring our impressive WÜSTHOF sharpness.
Each Amici 1814 Chef's Knife is unique. The distinctive, striking grain of the Calabrian olive wood draws an individual pattern on each handle; no two are alike. Olive is a slow-growing tree that provides durable wood, naturally water-repellent and antibacterial. As far as possible it is finished by hand, combining functional qualities with a fascinating look. Together with the colour-coordinated brass rivets, it is the ideal companion for this unique knife.
When you look at our Amici 1814, you immediately notice the magnificent engraving and the distinctive olive wood. And as you feast your eyes the knife slowly but surely takes you on a relaxing journey through Italy. Each detail is flawless, enchanting and magical. The relationship between blade and handle is the golden ratio, known from antiquity, which gives the design its special harmony. The weight distribution of the knife is just as pleasing – the slender half-bolster design makes it remarkably light and perfectly balanced in your hand.
Our collaboration with the Italian master engraver Dario Cortini marks the first limited-edition knife of the WÜSTHOF 1814 Collection. The skilled filigree engraving on the carefully forged blade pays homage to the natural diversity of Italy and to the artist’s boundless love of life.
"With the Amici 1814 chef's knife, preparing food is both a craft and an art."
- Dario Cortini, Master Engraver & Creative Director of the Bottega Incisioni C. Giovanelli School of Engraving
