    Household knives

    Cleaning vegetables, peeling fruit, filleting meat or weighing herbs — the right knife makes all these jobs easy. This means having an ergonomic design as well as a suitable blade.

    Preparing with WMF knives

    The perfect preparation of dishes begins with the perfect knife. WMF always has the right knife for the job, whether peeling, cutting or filleting. What makes our knives so special is the Performance Cut blade technology. Traditional forging methods combine with the latest technologies to result in high-quality knives with outstanding and long-lasting sharpness. Our knives are made using hardened special blade steel, which means they are both corrosion resistant and acid resistant, even in unfavourable conditions.

    Knives from the Grand Class collection

    The black handles with stainless steel rivets hark back to the traditional art of forging. The blades made from high-quality steel, and with the Performance Cut technology guarantee precise results cut after cut. The handle is made from high-quality synthetic material, and is shaped in such a way that each knife sits perfectly balanced in the hand as it virtually glides through the food by itself. Thanks to the seamless finish, the knives offer clean cuts each and every time, and the elaborately shaped bolster prevents your fingers from slipping on the sharp blade.

    Performance Cut
    Performance Cut technology is a special method incorporating an exact cutting angle for precise results. A new finishing technology for the knife steel creates knives that look good, remain sharp for a long time, and are resistant to corrosion. The longer cutting ability exceeds the requirements of DIN standard 8442-5 due to the precision blade sharpness and the perfect blade withdrawal.
    Forged special blade steel
    The blades on all WMF household knives are made from hardened special blade steel. The material, 15% chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel, guarantees extreme sharpness and outstanding elasticity. It is corrosion resistant and in combination with the Performance Cut technology it retains its cutting properties. The alloy of the special blade steel is permanently etched onto each knife.
    Made in Germany
    WMF relies upon Made in Germany quality for its knives too. The company's own forge in Hayingen is one of the largest in Germany. Unlike many other blade manufacturers WMF applies traditional methods, and it produces knives at its own forge that are processed along the entire length using a forging hammer that are ground several times and then polished. The final result is a totally flat surface.
