No, it's `C-h k'.

You mean the command which is called by `C-h k'?

,----[ C-h k C-h k ]
| C-h k runs the command describe-key, which is an interactive compiled Lisp
| function in `help.el'.
| 
| It is bound to C-h k, <f1> k, <help> k, <menu-bar> <help-menu> <describe>
| <describe-key-1>.
| 
| (describe-key &optional key untranslated up-event)
| 
| Display documentation of the function invoked by key.
| key can be any kind of a key sequence; it can include keyboard events,
| mouse events, and/or menu events.  When calling from a program,
| pass key as a string or a vector.
| 
| If non-nil, untranslated is a vector of the corresponding untranslated events.
| It can also be a number, in which case the untranslated events from
| the last key sequence entered are used.
| up-event is the up-event that was discarded by reading key, or nil.
| 
| If key is a menu item or a tool-bar button that is disabled, this command
| temporarily enables it to allow getting help on disabled items and buttons.
