The Japanese chef's knife is powerful and versatile: whether rhythmically chopping herbs, vegetables and fruit or precisely slicing through meat and fish, the extremely sharp blade produces fine to wafer-thin cuts. As a chef's knife with a wide blade, it is a remarkably powerful tool which is inspiring and easy to use when preparing and plating fresh food. Diamond-like carbon (DLC) coating: the DLC-coated blade is the gold standard on the knife market. Thanks to the lotus effect, it glides almost effortlessly through hard and soft ingredients and is also extremely durable and scratch resistant. Hexagon Power Grip: the innovative, ergonomic handle with its offset non-slip honeycomb structure ensures ultimate control and is ideal for all working conditions.


Like with other Wüsthof collections the blade is made from X50CrMoV15 steel, which was sharpened according to the PEtec method. These knives, however, are completely black, with a non-reflective black DLC coating on the blade. DLC-coating stands for Diamond-Like-Carbon-coating. A carbon structure that is used in the aviation industry. So extremely strong. The result is a blade that is well protected against scratches and acids. And, it is also amazing to look at!

Non-slip handle

The handle is made from polyamide and is for 15% reinforced with fibreglass to make sure the material doesn't wear out. In addition, the non-slip honeycomb structure of the Hexagon Power Grip guarantees extreme control. An advantage for the user: even under hectic, wet or difficult working circumstances you will have enough grip over the knife. This knife won't easily slip from your hands. Even if your hands are wet. In addition, the fibreglass reinforced polyamide handle is maintenance-friendly. Win-win.

Inspired by the experience and ideas of four enthusiast professionals who value performance in every aspect of life. Developed by designers and engineers who strive for perfection.
