Founded in 1910 by Karl Güde in the world-famous blade city of Solingen, GÜDE is proud to be one of the oldest German knife brands in the world, with over a hundred years of experience. GÜDE knives are forged and manufactured by hand in small quantities, as they have been for four generations. So every knife is a very special and unique piece! A sharp knife means more control and less slippage when you cut, leading to safer, more consistent slices. Whether you’re cooking at home or as a professional—a proper knife is an indispensable tool to have on hand.
