Zwilling J.A. Henckels Zwilling Pro
The Zwilling Pro Series of cutlery is the culmination of over 280 years of craftsmanship, innovation and design from Zwilling J.A. Henckels Cutlery, Germany's oldest premier knife maker. The concept for the new Zwilling Pro began with an exhaustive study of exactly how knives were used by modern chefs. Famed Italian designer Matteo Thun accepted the task of incorporating these observations of function and use into the new Pro Series. His resulting design is one of graceful strength and uncompromising functionality.
Key elements of the Zwilling Pro Series include a unique bolster that has the look of no bolster at all, while still providing support with flexibility to the blade. The beveled bolster design also yields the ideal handle-to-blade transition for the professional "pinch-grip" that offers the most comfortable and controlled use. This design has the added benefit of leaving the heel of the blade free to cut and allows simple heel-to-tip sharpening. The Zwilling Pro's precise edge is shaped by a laser-controlled process at a scant 15° angle, and precision-honed for effortless performance. And like all premium Zwilling JA Henckels cutlery, the Pro Series is crafted by SIGMAFORGE production and undergoes the FRIODUR ice hardening process. Made in Solingen, Germany from Henckelsí special formula, high-carbon, no stain steel. Manufacturer's Lifetime Warranty.
