Summary

With this knife in hand, you can chop, slice and mince your way through extended cutting tasks without fatigue. Our new 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. A contoured ergonomic handle enhances 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 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.
  • 8" knife: 8"-long blade, 5 1/2"-long handle; 9 oz.
  • 10" knife: 10"-long blade, 5 1/2"-long handle; 10 oz.
  • 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, your knife should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Knife I debated endlessly between this 8 inch chef's knife and the Wusthof Classic Ikon. What finally tilted me towards this one was the angled bolster, which for my female hand allowed the perfect pinch grip and great control. This knife has a substantial weight and balance, which I prefer, and Matteo's unique bolster design makes it very comfortable and easy to use. Incredible blade, and a recent special offer made it a very good buy. It fits perfectly in one of the wider slots on my Zwilling block. Beautiful knife in all ways, I'm very pleased with this choice.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 inch chef's knife--wow! I've had this for about a month, it fits my hand exactly and works like magic. It slices and chops everything beautifully, the 10 inch size is great. I was afraid it was going to be too big, but it isn't, just take your time and learn how to use it. It does whatever I ask of it and does it perfectly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A better than average chef's knife How much you like this knife will depend on your experience and expectations. If you've never used a great knife and you compare it to the average knife you'd find at a mass merchandizer you'll probably be thrilled. It's razor-sharp, sturdy, holds an edge, is comfortable to hold for long periods, and has a wide blade that's great for scooping up what you've chopped. What it lacks is the subtle balance and refinements in the curve of the blade and handle that would make it a GREAT knife. Also keep in mind that this particular knife is currently available only from Williams-Sonoma. It has the handle of the older TWIN Pro-S line mated to the blade and bolster of the new TWIN Profection line. In short, it's worth the price but there are better knives available for only a bit more money. I exchanged it for Wusthof 8" Classic Ikon which I find delightful. Try before you buy, though. You may feel differently.
