Four top chefs helped our design team perfect Performer knives. The expert critique of Renato Manzi, Anika Schmidt, Alexander Scharmberg and René Steinbach helped our designers perfect these knives for every type of use, in the kitchen and at the table.They brought not only their immense knowledge and skill at cooking, but their experiences as show cook, athlete, music lover, teacher and gardener. These very different personalities have in common a love of conviviality, which they have devoted their lives to sharing. They are the godparents of the series and we think you'll love to meet them.
For 200 years WÜSTHOF has created the world’s best knives, the standout tools spotted in the hands of top chefs in the world’s renowned restaurants. Today we want to celebrate the millions of home cooks who also rely on WÜSTHOF. For them, cooking is an act of love, and WÜSTHOF makes their experiments, their discoveries, and their special moments with family and friends possible.
