Precision-forged from a single piece of WÜSTHOF steel by expert artisans in Solingen, Germany, the Performer Chef's Knife features a black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating.

The blade's ultra-hardness, with a rating of HRC 104, combined with the DLC coating, reduces friction and enables precise slicing through both soft and hard ingredients effortlessly.
