Product Description

The Performer knife series consists of two Cook’s Knives (16 cm and 20 cm), a Santoku and a Paring Knife. Wüsthof is the first knife manufacturer to offer black, fully forged, DLC-coated knives. The diamond-like carbon coating was developed to withstand the toughest conditions: the amorphous carbon layer, just a few micrometers thick, increases the surface hardness of our Wüsthof blades from 58 to a unique 104 Rockwell. This makes them resistant to acids, alkalis, extreme temperatures and general wear and tear – even scratches don't stand a chance. The dynamics of our sharp knives are complemented by the slip-resistant Hexagon Power Grip. Chefs love these outstanding knives that sit perfectly in the hand and guarantee complete control, even under the most demanding working conditions. As a family business now in the seventh generation, Wüsthof has been producing knives in Solingen – known as a ‘City of Blades’ – since 1814. Excellent quality, sustainable operations and innovative ideas guarantee that our production process is among the most advanced of its kind. Our traditional family company is one of the world’s premium manufacturers of high-quality knives. We are expert producers of knives for cooking, such as chef’s knives, specialist knives, paring knives, all-purpose knives and additional kitchen accessories and/or kitchen aids such as scissors through to useful knife blocks and many more items to do with sharp knife blades. From knife skills workshops on the optimal use of cook’s knives, peeling knives or bread knives, the high-quality knife sharpener or sharpening steel, the blade-protecting cutting board or the practical knife set – you will always find a great gift idea in our Wüsthof range.
