Summary

Named after the Japanese word for "connection," Zwilling's Kanren collection unites German engineering with Japanese craftsmanship. Hand-honed Honbazuke blades slice, dice, chop and carve with scalpel-like sharpness thanks to high performance carbide stainless steel. Triple-riveted Micarta handles feature Zwilling's signature curved bolster, promoting a secure grip and comfortable, fatigue-free cutting.

  • 4" paring knife.
  • 5 1/2 prep knife.
  • 8" chef's knife.
  • 9" carving knife.
  • 9" bread knife.
  • 4 1/2" steak knives (set of 4).

  • Includes five of the most commonly used knives, plus four steak knives, kitchen shears, a sharpening steel and a storage block.
  • 48-layer Damascus-style blades are hand honed in high performance stainless steel for remarkable corrosion-, stain- and chip–resistance.

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.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing once a week, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen your knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener designed to sharpen at a 15-degree angle, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.
