Additional Information

The KRAMER by ZWILLING EUROLINE Carbon Collection is the first line created with Master Bladesmith Bob Kramer. With over 18 years of forging experience, Bob has partnered with ZWILLING J.A. Henckels to craft a knife that is an exact replica of the straight carbon steel knives made in his Olympia, Washington workshop.

Bob's design has an extremely wide blade to maximize knuckle clearance for larger hands and for cutting through large produce and piles of food. Chopped food can easily be transported with this impressive, broad blade.

A material nearly lost to the home kitchen, straight carbon steel requires knowledge and care to maintain. In return, owners will be rewarded with a sharpness and keenness of edge that only straight carbon can deliver. Hand-finished with a 3-step process by the most skilled Japanese artisans, the outstanding blade is paired with a stunning handshaped Grenadille wood handle with brass rivets and a Bob Kramer mosaic pin.

KRAMER by ZWILLING EUROLINE Carbon Collection 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 39.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beast of a knife This 10" chef knife is truly a beast! An authentic Bob Kramer design, it's meant to withstand long hours of use. The large, wooden handle fits perfectly in your hand. The wide blade is perfect for cutting through almost any size fruit of vegetable. Carbon steel is rarely used anymore because it requires more care, but it is well worth the investment of time. If you want, you can let the blade develop a grey patina that will protect it. Otherwise you wash and dry and it will stay nice and shiny. This blade is incredibly sharp and is very easy to maintain on a whetstone. This is a knife that you will treasure for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the care investment A true gem within the Bob Kramer collection this mega sized 10 inch Chef's knife is made from the straight Carbon Steel that Bob Kramer insists upon. True it needs to be cared for by hand washing and drying it is worth it. This will retain its razor sharp edge use after use and resharpen beautifully. The wooden handle with brass accents is beautifully crafted to be comfortable and provide control of the blade.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Knife I just love how the more I use this knife, the more it becomes patinaed and individual. This knife is wonderful, but I would caution anyone that is not OK with a knife that doesn't stay shiny because even with proper care, this knife will not look the same way it does when it comes out of the box, which I personally love! I also love the brass detailing and the handle is comfortable and really well thought out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cadillac of Steel That's how Bob Kramer describes carbon steel. It's the perfect steel that is so incredibly sharp it will cut through anything with ease. It is also very easy to maintain that edge unlike some harder steels. The big blade makes it easy to chop large vegetables or piles of food. The handle is equally beautiful and I love that the pin in the handle comes from Bob Kramer himself, such a personal touch. It does require a little extra care, unlike stainless steel. I always wash and dry it as soon as I'm finished with any task. The extra care is totally worth it to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top of the line with that classical Kramer look... if you’ve got the time and wherewithal to maintain this amazing knife, you’ll get that same time back in years from this carbon steel chef forged blade. The only other thing is checking your rivets, some can be raised more than others and cause irritation to your palm; if you’re able to sift through individuals in the store, look for the more flush rivets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Oddly enough, I’ve found the 10” carbon chef knife to be the most sought after knife in the Bob Kramer collection. Treat this knife with the respect it deserves and it’ll never let you down! The larger blade is so versatile and able to use in multiple cuisines... definitely the talk of the town when this comes out the kit in any kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little workhorse, even made to suit bigger hands; that classic wide blade synonymous with Bob Kramer‘s design... And just for that purpose (maximize knuckle clearance for larger hands). Beautifully forged true carbon steel, you’ll fall in love with this!

I have this knife on order. Would you recommend the 32602-001 sharpener for this knife? Or any other sharpener. I’m not good with wet stones yet. 

Asked by: Jrmcd
Kramer knives are made of a different steel formula than our Zwiling/Twin brand, so 32602-001 and our other handheld sharpeners may not be as effective as a stone. We typically recommend purchasing a sharpener within the same brand/style as your knives. You can learn about the different types of sharpeners and how to use them here: https://www.zwilling.com/us/about-us/use-care/article-use-care-knife-sharpening.html?fdid=use-and-care

I thought carbon steel knives needed only hand honing with a steel.  Are you saying they must be returned periodically for professional sharpening?  How often is this recommended for normal household use and what is the cost?

Asked by: Connecticut woman
Honing will keep the blade straight and help the knife retain its edge. We do recommend having all of all of our (non-serrated) kitchen knives professionally sharpened 1-2 times a year. You can find more information about our knife sharpening service, including cost, here: https://zwillingonline.practicaldatacore.com/mod_zwillingEdge/

Being straight carbon steel won't this knife be prone to rusting ?

Asked by: troy
Yes, carbon steel is prone to rusting if not cared for properly. These knives will develop a natural black or blackish-gray patina over time which will help stave off rust and other corrosion.

This came with a little vial of liquid. Can anyone tell me what that is?

Asked by: jasldjfjasdf
Great question! KRAMER by ZWILLING EUROLINE Carbon Collection 8" chefs knife is accompanied by a small bottle of Camellia oil. The oil can be used on both the blade and handle. When applied to a wood handle, it helps protect it from moisture damage, dirt and UV light.
