Zwilling J.A. Henckels is a knife manufacturer based in Solingen, Germany. Henckels is one of the largest and oldest manufacturers of kitchen knives, scissors, cookware and flatware. Since 1970 it has been a part of the Werhahn-Group.
Translated from English to German "TWIN" = "ZWILLING" and since 1731 our twins have become the global symbol of excellence representing the best in German culinary design and precision manufacturing. The legacy of our brand began with premium knives and now includes a complete product range for the discerning professional chef and for those whose gourmet passion requires the best.
To keep our ZWILLING® portfolio innovative and stylish we collaborate with authorities such as architect and designer Matteo Thun and master blade-smith Bob Kramer to develop leading edge products that combine advanced technology, premium materials and the artistry of craftsmanship into functional forms.
There are a number of premium cutlery series to choose from. Each features a distinctive style, weight and balance to ensure a comfortable fit for every hand size. Our latest innovative series feature a contoured bolster, improving the transition from handle to blade for perfect balance and control, guiding the hand into a secure pinch grip. Wedge shaped blades simplify cutting techniques and allow for better rocking / chopping motions. Found on the Pro, 1731 and Profection series, you'll "pinch-it" like a pro.
