Designed for perfect control and impeccable taste
Combining centuries of expert artisanship with cutting-edge technology, the Performer series spotlights innovative knives designed for unmatched control.
Precision forged from a single piece of WÜSTHOF steel by our expert knife artisans in Solingen, Germany, each Performer blade is enhanced by a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. This DLC coating makes our steel exceptionally strong and durable, producing a long-lasting blade that is heat resistant, scratchproof, and resilient to damage, even after frequent use in your kitchen -- it also makes Performer blades largely water-repellent, mimicking the moisture-beading effect you might see on the sleeve of your rain jacket.
Handles are fitted with our ergonomic Hexagon Power Grip, a non-slip honeycomb design that guarantees each slicing moment is safe, comfortable, and precise.”
Hexagon power grip
With its honeycomb design, the Hexagon Power Grip gives you a firm, non-slip hold under all working conditions. The glass fiber reinforced polyamide material on the handle makes it easy to care for.
Elegant, black, coating
The Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on a Performer blade increases the surface hardness of WÜSTHOF steel from 58 to a unique 104 Rockwell.
What results is a stylish, premium-quality blade with exceptional durability under any kitchen conditions.
