Performer Double Serrated Bread Knife
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 expert knife artisans in Solingen, Germany, each Performer blade is enhanced by a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. This DLC coating makes the 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 an ergonomic Hexagon Power Grip, a non-slip honeycomb design that guarantees each slicing moment is safe, comfortable, and precise.
WÜSTHOF’s precise, double-serrated edge makes a clear difference with this bread knife: in contrast with a single-serrated edge, this knife has serrations within the serrations, meaning that it remains sharp for longer, requires less pressure and is suitable for very precise, smooth cuts. Bread with a hard crust is not crushed when sliced with this double-serrated blade, while bread with a soft crust is also sliced cleanly, without any tearing of the delicate surface.
