Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Rocking Santoku Knife
Easy, hassle-free returns online and in-store for eligible items.Learn More
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. This multipurpose knife excels for both Western rocking cuts and Asian chop cuts. Its broad blade is also handy for transferring cut ingredients to a bowl or pan.
- All-purpose knife for chopping and slicing meat, fish and vegetables, with hollow-ground blade depressions to reduce friction and minimize sticking.
- 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.
- Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 and a half thumbs up from Cuts through anything-even human thumbs Very sharp and good balance. So sharp that you won’t even realize the tip of your thumb is cut off until it’s too late. 10/10 would chop thumb off again with this knifeDate published: 2019-11-29Rated 5 out of 5 by KingKong from Great knife My wife bought this knife over a year ago and our family uses it several times a day. It is our go to knife, 1st pick. It is sharp and cuts everything, watch your fingers. Purchased another one recently for my son that just moved into his own place. He loves it.Date published: 2017-01-29Rated 5 out of 5 by SavvyShopper48 from Happy Purchase! Knife is beautifully designed, and it's not too heavy. VERY sharp, does a really good job of dicing/mincing. Excellent grip, comfortable movement. Overall I'm pleased with my purchase. NOTE: Do NOT wash in dishwasher. I keep a tall jar (with thick sponge at bottom to protect points of knives) which I fill with hot soapy water. I place my knive(s) in it while I finish food prep. I then remove them from jar, wipe with wet paper towel, rinse under running hot water, then carefully dry with my Sonoma dish towel. Putting in dw can dull knives and affect overall appearance. If you're going to invest in good knives, might as well go a few steps to protect them. ALSO: This is a pricey knife, but WM had a sale plus 20% PLUS free shipping, which added up to a hefty saving. Thank you WS!Date published: 2016-01-08
