The Japanese chef's knife is powerful and versatile: whether rhythmically chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit or precisely slicing through meat and fish, the extremely sharp blade produces fine to wafer-thin cuts. As a chef's knife with a wide blade, it is a remarkably powerful tool which is inspiring and easy to use when preparing and plating fresh food. Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating: the DLC-coated blade is the gold standard on the knife market. Thanks to the lotus effect, it glides almost effortlessly through hard and soft ingredients and is also extremely durable and scratch resistant. Hexagon Power Grip: the innovative, ergonomic handle with its offset non-slip honeycomb structure ensures ultimate control and is ideal for all working conditions.
The W0STHOF Performer knife series proves its worth with every use: exceptional quality for unconditional performance. The ultra-hard, diamond-like carbon (DLC) coated blade ensures reduced friction due to the lotus effect and glides precisely through both soft and hard ingredients. The non-slip honeycomb structure of the Hexagon Power Grip guarantees perfect handling and extreme control. This knife will captivate you - for a lifetime!
The Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating, created for space travel and motor sports, increases the surface hardness of WÜSTHOF steel from 58 to a unique 104 Rockwell. It is virtually immune to adverse external effects and extremely resistant to heat. WÜSTHOF is the first knife manufacturer in the world to use this technology on a fully forged knife with bolster.
Forged from a single piece of stainless steel
Each knife is forged from a single piece of stainless steel, ensuring superior purity and durability.
Hexagon Power Grip
The Hexagon Power Grip with its honeycomb structure gives you a firm grip even under difficult working conditions. You will always use your knife safely and precisely. The handle of glass fibre-reinforced polyamide is easy-care and dishwasher-safe.
The hydrophobic 'lotus effect' of the surface causes freshly cut pieces of food, such as slices of a juicy onion, to slip away. Cutting feels almost frictionless. The blade repels acids from citrus fruits, as well as fats or starches. Simply wipe and it shines like new.
