The chef's knife from the ZWILLING TAKUMI series is a genuine original. Made in the Japanese city of Seki and featuring extra-fine Honbazuke honing by master craftsmen, this chef's knife lets you skilfully chop the finest cut material using a cradle cut technique. And all the other values of this excellent knife impress, too.


The TAKUMI premium chef's knife takes you to a new dimension in terms of hardness and cutting edge retention. 100 layers of our newly developed premium steel and an FC 63 core have been processed in the 20 cm blade which – with its score of 63 HRC – achieves a degree of hardness rarely seen in kitchen knives, but without compromising on flexibility.


In other words, its inner values are spot on. But with a Japanese premium knife, the design should, of course, not be inferior to the outstanding technical values in any aspect. The chef's knife from the ZWILLING TAKUMI series impresses here with its beautiful and individual damask pattern right from the tip. A thrill that continues right down to the handle with its noble Micarta sheathing.

A new dimension, made possible by our equally new premium steel. ZWILLING developed this steel and used it for the first time in the new TAKUMI knife series. 100 layers in Damascus design encase the FC 63 core and guarantee the superior hardness and edge retention of all the knives in the series. Japanese knives and ZWILLING become TAKUMI – a combination with a tradition and a new chapter in the success story.

Multifunctional all-round talents

If you enjoy cooking, there's no alternative to a good chef's knife. This is why you will find one in the ZWILLING TAKUMI series. Chef's knives are the ideal, versatile tool for sophisticated cuisine. They are suitable for most foods to be cut, sit nicely in your hand, and they are very robust.

Original Japanese handicraft

The ZWILLING Takumi knife series not only sounds Japanese, it really is made in Japan. Japanese handicraft meets German engineering skills in this set. The result is the six-piece knife set comprising ultra-hard blades with hand-ground Honbazuke honing.

Damask pattern – must-have or not?

101 layers of premium steel and an incredible hardness of 63 HRC. The TAKUMI chef's knife also has an extraordinary damask blade pattern. Although good cutting is still possible without these knives, if you value impressive looks on top of good inner values, you're on the right track here.
