Balance, performance and durability have made Zwilling JA Henckels' hand-honed knives the choice of chefs throughout the world. Laser monitoring ensures that each blade is honed to an optimal, consistent cutting angle. Super-sharp stainless- steel blades go through a special ice-hardening process, which further strengthens them and keeps them sharper longer. Triple-riveted tangs are permanently bonded to the unbreakable polypropylene handles. Zwilling JA Henckels, founded in Solingen, Germany, 1731.
