Influenced by traditional European design, each knife in the KRAMER by ZWILLING Euroline Essential Collection is built to last a lifetime. Fabricated in the knife-making capital of Seki, Japan, these exceptional knives undergo a rigorous 100-step, 42-day manufacturing process during which they pass through the hands of 45 expert artisans. The revolutionary FC61 steel retains a screaming-sharp edge and is incredibly durable. Master Bladesmith Bob Kramer’s designs have an extremely wide blade to maximize knuckle clearance for larger hands and for cutting through large produce and piles of food. For a secure, supremely comfortable grip, hand-ground brushed polymer handles feature a complex curvature that mirrors the palm.
