    Product description

    As the name suggests, a Chinese chef’s knife is designed for preparing Asian food. Ultimately, however, it is capable of so much more. For due to its versatility and good handling characteristics, more and more professional and amateur chefs around the world are swearing by this exotic model. Although shaped like an axe, the Chinese chef’s knife is not used to chop firm foods. As its blade is too thin to shatter bones, it is designed for precision dicing fruit and vegetables and chopping herbs. Unlike its European counterpart, the blade of the Chinese chef’s knife is extremely wide. WMF offers a wide range of Chinese chef’s knives, allowing you to expand your knife collection individually with such prime candidates.

    The knives in the Grand Gourmet collection are a highlight in any kitchen. Made entirely from stainless steel, they are not only stylish, but also come with a range of exclusive extras: for example, the Cromargan® handles ensure a secure grip and their seamless design guarantees optimum hygiene. When cutting, the bolster provides the necessary balance between handle and blade, giving a whole new meaning to the expression ‘cutting-edge’: high-grade special blade steel is forged in the traditional way along the entire length of the blade and then finished using Performance Cut technology. The Grand Gourmet series includes classics such as an all-purpose knife, a chef’s knife and a bread knife as well as a boning, fillet and Santoku knife. Incidentally, the stainless steel handles are ideal for engraving – allowing you to make each knife unmistakably your own or a highly personalised gift.

    What does Performance Cut Technology mean?

It is, for instance, a new, innovative finishing of the steel and a high-precision sharpening process of the blades. This results in knives with an optimal cutting angle, which remain sharp for an unbelievably long time.

    Traditional forging craft and the latest 'Made in Germany' technology

    Traditional forging craft and the latest 'Made in Germany' technology

    WMF follows the tradition of cutlers and uses particular care for this craft. From 2014, the company will combine the traditional art of forging with the latest precision technology in manufacturing. Tests show that WMF household knives that are made with this Performance Cut Technology exceed the standard for cutting performance by double. 


    In Hayingen, a small town in the middle of the Swabian Alb, WMF operates one of the largest blade forges in Germany. Annually, hundreds of thousands of knives are made in the company's own factory according to the traditional drop forging process. In this process, blades made of special blade steel are worked over the whole length with the forging hammer. About 30 work steps are required before the customer is holding a knife of the highest quality in their hands: From the examination of the raw material to the packaging and shipping of the knife.


    Every work step is subject to strict quality controls. Only in this way can WMF ensure the high quality standard at every phase of the manufacturing process. The result is 'Made in Germany' knife blades that are phenomenally sharp, precise in their cut and retain their cutting performance for a long time.
