A small, versatile knife with slim, powerful blade and an extremely sharp edge, the WÜSTHOF Performer 3 1/2" Paring Knife is ideal for chopping smaller ingredients such as onions, herbs, and garlic cloves. It is also the perfect tool for peeling, chopping, and carving fruits and vegetables, such as trimming the tops from carrots and strawberries. With its pointed blade, it is also often used for larding larger cuts of meat. The elegant, black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the blade is the gold standard of the luxury knife market: it allows the knife to effortlessly glide through hard and soft ingredients while remaining extremely durable and scratch resistant. Performer handles are fitted with WÜSTHOF's innovative, ergonomic Hexagon Power Grip — with its offset non-slip honeycomb structure, it ensures ultimate control under all working conditions.
