Zwilling J.A. Henckels

The history of the symbol which represents ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS AG dates back to June 1731 - under the Gemini sign. It was then that Johann Peter Henckels, a knife-maker based in Solingen, registered the "Twin"- symbol - now recognized throughout the world - as his trademark with the Cutlers´ Guild of Solingen. It is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world.
