Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Ultimate Bread Knife
- Special Offer
The ultimate slicer for everything from crusty artisan loaves to soft, buttery brioche, this precision knife has a unique scalloped blade for top performance. The large and small scallops work together to ensure efficient slicing—without tearing and with fewer crumbs. The extra-long blade allows you to slice even the widest European-style loaves. The blade’s width raises the handle off the cutting board, leaving plenty of room for knuckle clearance as you slice cleanly through the bottom crust. A special arched bolster, designed by architect Matteo Thun, promotes a perfect thumb grip to ensure unrivaled comfort.
- 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.
- Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TDactyl from Excellent carving and bread knife This knife is fantastic. It slices through a cake like it was soft butter (and the blade is, in fact, longer than many cakes) but also did a great job carving the Thanksgiving turkey. A worthy investment.Date published: 2015-02-11
