Zwilling J.A. Henckels Pro Serrated Prep Knife, 5 1/2"
Easy, hassle-free returns online and in-store for eligible items.Learn More
After three years of rigorous testing, Zwilling knifemakers hit upon the "sweet spot" for this blade's serrated edge. The unique pattern of large and small scallops cuts easily through tough foods—hard-skinned vegetables, crusty breads—without tearing or crushing delicate textures such as soft bread or ripe tomatoes.
- Multipurpose serrated knife offers plenty of knuckle clearance for chopping yet is small enough for paring tasks.
- Unique scalloped serrations hold their sharpness and excel for cutting a wide range of food textures.
- Precision forged using Zwilling’s Sigmaforge process, which incorporates the Friodur ice-hardening technique to produce corrosion-resistant blades that are exceptionally hard yet flexible.
- Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.
- Dimensions & More Info
- Precise lasers ensure each blade’s edge is at the optimal cutting angle for maximum sharpness.
- Arched bolster perfectly supports the thumb—and allows the full length of the edge to be sharpened, from tip to end.
- Contoured for a secure, comfortable grip, the sleek ABS resin handle is triple-riveted to the blade.
- 5 1/2"-long blade, 4 3/4"-long handle.
- 11.2 oz.
- Made in Germany.
- 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.
- Sharpen your 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMCM49 from Wonderful Serrated Utility Knife I needed to replace my 25 year old Zwilling Twin serrated utility knife, and was debating between this one, the Zwilling Pro 5" serrated utility and the Wusthof Classic Ikon 5" utility. I liked them all but alas, I couldn't justify all three, but Idecided that this is my favorite. The unique serrated edge is incredibly sharp (watch out!), but what I really liked was the blade angle, making it easier to slice things like tomatoes, lemons, vegetables. I'm a fan of the Zwilling Pro angled bolster, and this is a worthy replacement for my old knife. It's a breeze to slice thru thick sandwiches or cut buns in half, and really excels with soft foods. Highly recommended, I find myself using it a lot. I had to order online because I couldn't find this particular knife in any store.Date published: 2015-10-03
