    Product description

    This is the exotic model amongst the knives. Originally designed for preparing Japanese dishes, it has long since become a staple in international kitchens. A Santoku knife is best suited to preparing wok dishes and wafer-thin sushi. It easily cuts and chops meat, fish, vegetables and herbs and was designed solely for downward cutting, i.e. chopping not mincing. Besides being extremely sharp, the Santoku knife is characterised by its special shape: unlike European models, the blade is wider than the handle, allowing for more finger room when cutting. A Santoku knife is also often lighter than its comparably big European counterparts. For those who like to cook a lot, this knife is a valuable addition to any knife set.

    Knives like no other! Blades so fine that they appear to have come straight from an old Damascus forge and so strong that they remain sharp for a remarkably long time. All made possible by state-of-the-art technology: various special steels are combined to create a single blade steel, which consists of relatively 120 layers and is further processed using a traditional forging method. The knives in the WMF Damasteel series are exceptionally strong and can thus be ground to an extremely sharp angle. The result: outstanding, long-lasting sharpness. A forged bolster ensures the perfect balance between the blade and the ergonomically shaped stainless steel handle. The characteristic pattern of the blade results from the various raw materials processed – and adds a touch of luxury to the collection. This popular series includes an all-purpose knife, a chef’s knife, a carving knife and a Santoku knife.

    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.
