Our Zwilling Pro collection offers ultimate comfort, security and precision in the hand. A special arched bolster designed by architect Matteo Thun promotes a perfect thumb grip, and contoured ergonomic handles enhance your comfort. This set is configured with a variety of blade options for cutting, chopping and slicing, so you're equipped to prepare any menu.  

  • 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 an optimal 15-degree angle for maximum sharpness.
  • Arched bolster designed by architect Matteo Thun perfectly supports the thumb for ultimate comfort, safety and precise handling.
  • Bolster also allows the full length of the edge to be sharpened, from tip to end.
  • Sleek ABS resin handle is triple riveted to a full tang and contoured for a secure, comfortable grip.
  • Knife blades are individually hand sharpened and polished.
  • Block available in black or white rubberwood, bamboo and walnut.
  • Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.

Use & Care


  • 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.


  • 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 knives should not need sharpening more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen straight-edge knives at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have them sharpened by a professional.
  • Sharpen serrated knife at home using a sharpener specifically designed for a serrated blade, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

Free Knife Sharpening in Stores

Working with a sharp knife is safer, more effective and much less tiring than trying to cut and slice with a dull one.

The first knife is free; each additional knife is just $5.

Our stores also offer knife demonstrations to teach you the correct grip, positioning and basic knife techniques and can help you find the perfect cutlery for your needs – just ask a store associate for assistance.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, beautiful, high quality knife set I love these knives. I spent way too much time looking for the perfect set, dragging my at first excited girlfriend to the store so I could demo every single chef's knife they had. By the time I got to the Japanese knives I could tell she wanted to test them on me. Well balanced, and sharp! I knew their hardness level was slightly lower than the Ikons, which was slightly lower than the Shuns and other Japanese knives, but you would never know. The chef's knife is wider than the Ikon which I love, and you feels just as good in your hand as the more expensive Wüsthof. The Pro design is sleek and awesome for the pinch-grip. I read reviews about the 5" Santoku being useless so I opted the 5" prep instead which is great. I also wanted the 8" breadknife and walnut block so this was my set. I tried combining each knife separately but it still came out to more money. I'll add the 8" Santoku and another prep later, maybe as a gift from my patient GF? I'm extremely happy with the set, especially the spectacular Chef's blade, and excellent customer service from William Sonoma.

  • I’m about to buy this product but the summary says That the block has 12 slots and when I read Brianna’s Review she asked about how many extra slots it has and the answer was 4 more upper the stake knives. So I’m confuse please advise. 

    Asked by: waleska
    This item includes a 16-slot block, so there will be four additional empty slots in the upper part of the block in addition to the 6 steak knife slots on the bottom of the block.

    Besides the slots for the steak knives, how many other empty slots are in this block? And what size knives can fit in them? Hoping to add to the collection. 

    Asked by: Brianna
    In addition to the steak slots, there will be four empty upper slots in the knife block. This set is well-rounded for a smaller configuration, but you may consider adding a smaller serrated prep/utility knife, a Santoku knife (large or small), a boning/fillet knife, or even a carving knife. Which pieces you choose will depend on how you wish to arrange the knives and your own personal cooking style.
