Exclusive Precision Edge Technology

WÜSTHOF'S Precision Edge Technology, PEtec, offers superior blade sharpness and has set the new standard for modern cutlery.

Conventionally hand-sharpened knives are plagued by irregularities that diminish the blade’s sharpness and overall performance. Through a proprietary process inclusive of computer-controlled robotics, WÜSTHOF'S PEtec yields a smoother, more refined edge with dramatically increased sharpness and sharpness retention along the entire length of the blade. The result is a knife with a definitive advantage for every home or professional chef.

The Technology:

  • Before sharpening, the blades are measured using lasers to ensure accuracy
  • Computers calculate the precise sharpening angle for each blade
  • Precision robots sharpen the blades on a whetstone
  • The knives are given a final polish using a specialized disc

The Benefits:

  • The quality of forged WÜSTHOF knives producted using the PEtec process is significantly higher than that producted by the standard manual sharpening process.
  • Extremely high cutting performance with a 20% sharper edge
  • Doubles the edge retention
  • Optimum cutting edge along the entire length of the blade
  • Unique, consistently high and reproducible quality
