Product description

The chef’s knife is the jack of all trades amongst knives: its wide, strong blade glides smoothly through fish and meat, dicing even the hardest of vegetables. The chef’s knife also makes easy work of mincing herbs and chopping up nuts: simply place the tip of the knife on the cutting board and rock the blade up and down. And as if that weren’t enough, the broadside of the knife can be used for tenderising meat to make sure it is evenly flat, for example like a schnitzel. No wonder this highly versatile knife is regarded as a kitchen staple. WMF offers a variety of models with varying blade lengths (13, 15 and 20 centimetres) and characteristics for each knife collection. Your new favourite knife is sure to be amongst them.

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.

Performance Cut

WMF Performance Cut Technology

Cut for as long as you want. Your knife always stays uniquely sharp. 

 

What does Performance Cut Technology mean? 

It is the combination of the traditional forging process with the latest precision technology. 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.

  • Performance Cut combines traditional forging methods with the latest developments in precision technology.

  • Performance Cut technology for outstanding and long-lasting sharpness.

  • Blades made of forged special blade steel.

  • Sturdy and corrosion-resistant.

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.
