Summary

Our Zwilling Pro collection offers ultimate comfort, security and precision in the hand, thanks to a special arched bolster designed by architect Matteo Thun that promotes a perfect thumb grip. Contoured ergonomic handles enhance your comfort.

  • Each knife is precision forged using Zwilling’s Sigmaforge process, resulting in an exceptionally hard yet flexible blade.
  • Zwilling’s Friodur ice-hardening technique results in a harder, sharper blade that is corrosion resistant and highly elastic.
  • Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade’s edge is at the optimal cutting angle for maximum sharpness.
  • Arched bolster designed by architect Matteo Thun perfectly supports the thumb for ultimate comfort, safety and precise handling. Also allows the full length of the edge to be sharpened, from tip to end.
  • The sleek ABS resin handle is triple riveted to the blade and contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
  • Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels since 1731.

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Rub mineral oil on the wood handle, as needed, to keep it from drying out.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this knife set! I was a little hesitant about the shape of the block, but it's looks modern and I love it! So glad I chose this over the traditional block, looks updated. The knifes are super sharp and I like that it has extra slots if I want to add more knifes to it. Wonderful set, you won't be sorry! Makes cutting vegetables so easy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Christmas gift for significant other The knives were a Christmas gift for my significant other. He loves them and can't get over how much nicer they are than his previous knives. They maintain their edge and don't need sharpening very often. We aren't thrilled with the block but we are thrilled with the selection of knives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and easy to use I can not say enough good things about these knives. We purchased these about 1 year ago and they are still as sharp as the day we got them. Highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect & sharp, with a beautiful block We received these knives as a wedding gift, and they have been flawless. Very sharp, excellent craftsmanship, very comfortable to hold for both small and large hands. The block is modern and a nice addition to a countertop. We hand wash and immediately dry them, and after 1.5 years of daily use, they're almost good as new (we're due to sharpen them, but other than that, they're still perfect). I highly recommend these knives.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp These are the best knives I've ever owned. Far superior to the other Zwilling pieces I've acquired over the years (and they were not cheap either). So far I've been using this set for about 2 months, hoping they hold up over time. I must say though, right from the beginning of use, the difference between these knives and all others is pretty clear. They are very, very very sharp with great balance.
