Description

ZWILLING Pro is the most user-friendly knife available to market. The unique blade shape and ergonomic bolster are the result of 280 years of experience in knife making, and the rigorous study of how knives are used. A unique curved bolster supports the professional pinch grip, with thumb and index finger on the blade, for safe cutting and less fatigue. The blade was redesigned with a broader curve in the front to facilitate the rocking motion of Western cutting, while the straight back is ideal for the Asian chopping motion. The full length of the blade can be used when cutting and can be sharpened from bolster to tip Designed in Italy by Matteo Thun and made in Germany by ZWILLING J.A. Henckels, the company that sets the standard for exceptional cutlery worldwide. With ZWILLING Pro we introduced an optimized chef's knife blade shape. Through years of experience in professional kitchens, some chefs have grown accustomed to and therefore prefer the traditional blade shape of the chef's knife. To enable these chefs to benefit from the new curved bolster, we have combined the innovative bolster shape with the classic blade shape.

  • Curved bolster encourages cutting with improved precision, safety and comfort
  • POM handle is durable and resiliant
  • SIGMAFORGE knife is forged from a single piece of Special Formula High-Carbon NO STAIN stainless steel
  • Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade starts sharper, stays sharper longer, and has superior resilience
  • Precision-honed blade and laser-controlled edge ensures ideal cutting angle for sharpness and durability
  • Full tang and handle are triple-riveted for superb stability
  • Dishwasher safe, had wash recommended
  • Manufactured in Germany

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me actually look forward to prep Two words: CURVED BOLSTER. It's a game changer. I occasionally do around 3 hours of prep work when making kimchi and used to get a huge blister at the base of my index finger because of my pinch grip. This knife however is so comfortable to use. It's hefty enough that I feel like I have control without it feeling heavy at all. Out of box sharpness is fantastic and passes the printer paper slice test. Easily slices thick root vegetables and is precise enough to make grapefruit suprèmes. Even with the German steel and amazing build quality, would recommend getting a ceramic or steel honing rod with angle guides to use before each use for good knife maintenance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Build Quality Issue I ordered online and received my order quickly but there is a problem. The handle scales are not flush with the tang. You can feel the metal edge of the tang in your palm resulting in uncomfortable handling. The handle and tang should be perfectly flush. Where is the quality control? I am considering returning the item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing This knife is a dream come true! It slices all my essential produce items and meat like butter. I would definitely recommend to any one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am using this knife now replacing my pro chef that has the deeper curve on the blade. My daughter borrowed my usual chef knife so I decided to try this one. I really like how it moves on the cutting board! I have always loved the Zwilling Pro series with the gently curved bolster and the balanced handle but this traditional chef is a nice step up for my cutting skills, its a smoother movement than I was used to but is just as efficient if not more so. Best knives on the planet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shared knife upgrade for large and small hands This knife is an upgrade for my wife and myself to both use. I have a few high end japanese knives for myself, but thought it was time to give our old Chinese made western chef knife a much needed retirement. This knife was a welcome upgrade for the shared household chef knife. Super sharp and pristine right out of the box. The blade is perfectly straight. The edge is ground perfectly. The handle fits nicely in both of our hands, even with mine being much larger(I'm 6'5" and she's 5'7"). We couldn't be happier with this chef knife. Even with this being the "traditional" version, this still has more of a curve than most western chef knives. That curve makes rocking even easier for better clearance on taller vegetables.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic everyday knife wasnt sure about the more modern shape of the new pro blade. ive had a 4 star of this type for over 25 years and the blade has a very distinct neat shape, very straight, almost no curves. i found they have a traditional version of the pro, went with that, and absolutely love this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Great Wide Blade! This Pro 6" wide blade function almost like nakiri knife. It has the same feature and purpose except this chef knife is not rectangular shape though slightly narrower blade towards the tip. Both knife has curved bolster encourages cutting with improved precision, safety and comfort. Upon cutting food, blade is useful in scooping from the cutting board. Great for cutting meat, vegetables, fruits and even bread. This knife is forged from a single piece of Special Formula High-Carbon NO STAIN stainless steel, durable, Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade and resilient.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel like a real chef now Wow this knife makes me feel like I’m a real chef now! It’s so sturdy, strong and contoured in all the right places but not some weird ergonomic grip just a nice strong hand alignment like what Grandad had in his kitchen.

What is the factory recommended cutting edge angle for this model? I noticed other knives in this series are set at 15 degrees. Would sharpness last longer if set at 20 degrees?

Asked by: Adrian L
This knife has a blade angle of 15° on each side (for a total blade angle of 30°). The angle doesn't determine how long sharpness will last. You will have to maintain the edge (at 12°-15°) to keep the blade sharp.
