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 TANREI 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.

What a carving knife should be

Long, sharp and well-balanced – this is what a good carving knife ideally needs to be, and this is exactly what this model from ZWILLING TANREI series stands for. The 23 cm long blade has the necessary hardness to precisely cut almost any meat or fish into even slices.

Blade and handle – a duo for meat

This Japanese carving knife from the ZWILLING TANREI series opens up a new dimension in knife quality. A composition of the 23 cm blade made of 101-layer premium steel and the rounded, ergonomically shaped knife handle with its exquisite micarta shell. A highlight both visually and in terms of handling.

Carving knife in a mysterious guise

It is 23 cm long, exceptionally hard at 63 HRC, and it also has a mysterious design, the blade of this carving knife from the ZWILLING TANREI series. The damask pattern is often seen on Japanese knives. A grain which is created during crafting and which is as unique to each knife as a fingerprint.
