Chop Like a Pro:

Zwilling Knives

Both amateur and professional chefs trust the classic knives from ZWILLING for various tasks in the kitchen. The chef’s knife in particular has a wide, strong blade and a straight cutting edge which you can effortlessly chop vegetables with as well as herbs and meat.

The perfect balance between chrome and carbon is the secret to ZWILLING’s high-quality special steel. The blades, which are marked with the FRIODUR® symbol, are also ice-hardened in a special procedure and are therefore extremely sharp, flexible and resistant to corrosion. The SIGMAFORGE seal provides the precision-forged quality which is made from one piece of steel and guarantees perfect geometry as well as a precise cut.
