Gustav Emil Ern Knives History

Henckels and Wustof, who were the largest two competitors to Gustav Emil Ern, started mass producing their knives after World War 2. This lowered the cost of production immensely and made it difficult for Gustav Emil Ern to compete against them.

They were one of the last companies to employ highly skilled craftsmen to make their knives, because they required such tenacious workers and skilled employees the business was quite small and when it came to "quantity over quality" after the war, they weren't able to keep up with this mass production so the business gradually began going under, until the total demise not long after World War 2. In recent years, however, there has been a resurgence in the worlds best chefs wanting to use a Gustav Emil Ern knife set, boasting that they provide exceptional quality and, if properly cared for, can look and perform as if brand new for years.

These world-renowned knives are hand-made on the border between Germany and Holland in a city called Solingen, which is often referred to as "The City of Blades". They are highly regarded as the best knives produced here, offering such a variety of styles varying from light weight to heavy and many other characteristics.
