Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Chef's Knife
- Special Offer
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.

- 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMCM49 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.Date published: 2015-08-08Rated 5 out of 5 by ChristopherC 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.Date published: 2015-07-26Rated 5 out of 5 by BobN from Fantastic All Around Knife From dicing, slicing, or chopping garlic to carving a Venison roast....this knife is becoming my favorite tool in the kitchen and worth every penny! Great product!Date published: 2012-12-14Rated 4 out of 5 by SlicenDice 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.Date published: 2012-02-14
