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. The ZWILLING Pro Wide Chef's Knife is the workhorse of the kitchen. Whether chopping, slicing, or dicing, the broad blade and comfortable, balanced size will quickly become the go-to knife for everyday tasks. A wide blade allows more knuckle clearance and makes it easy to scoop with the blade.

ZWILLING Pro 8-inch Wide Chef's Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An alternative chef blade I love the Pro. It is the epitome of the Zwilling brand. I love how the weight of the knife is perfectly balanced, and that the bolster has the perfect placement for the pinch grip hold. I love how this chef knife has an unique blade shape in that it’s curved more than traditional German knives and that way I can rock, slice and chop with this knife super easily. It feels solid and with the ice hardening and forging aspects of this knife, it’s going to last for a long time. A great knife to invest in. The wide chef knife is an unique blade shape for a chef, making it almost more like a rocking santoku, wide, but still can rock well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great alternative to a standard chef's knife when you are chopping harder or thicker fruits and vegetables like squash or whole watermelon, and larger pieces of meat even with bone in. Think cleaver meets santoku meets chef's knife. The broader blade makes scooping and transferring what you've cut easier. As with all knives in the Pro Series the hallmark curved bolster provides the most comfortable pinch grip which is important especially for heavier cutting tasks. The edge stays super sharp use after use and only needs to be sharpened once a year.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cross Between A Chef's and Nakiri If the nakiri blade shape is too straight and flat for you, then this is the knife for you. It features the width and stability of a nakiri (or Chinese cleaver) with the sweeping arc of a chef's knife. If you are accustomed to cutting with a rocking motion - tip anchored on the board with forward and backward movement - then you will love this knife. Makes easy work of large products, chunks of meat. It also features a design innovation - an angled bolster so you can pinch your fingers around the blade for maximum control. And the quality of this knife is exceptional. Pro line knives feature the most innovative design thinking and are manufactured with the latest technology in the industry. Every knife is forged from the one the best cutlery steels available. The quality of the steel is important because the better the steel, the longer a knife will hold an edge and how easy it will be to sharpen. These knives will stand up to a lifetime of use. Minimal maintenance. Hone them regularly and sharpen, at most, once a year. I hand wash so they look brand new, but they are dishwasher safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great Pro knife I like using this wider blade for chopping heftier vegetables and fruits. It has a cleaver"like" body. I like using this for butternut squash in particular. It will easily cut through soft bone . Good knife for crushing garlic and ginger. The innovation is in the design of the bolster. The rise between the handle and blade is a perfectly comfortable spot for your pinch grip. The half bolster allows for full use of the blade. Honing and sharpening is easier as well. Get this knife in your hands! You will appreciate the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this wide chef knife! Great chunk knife! This wide Pro 8" chef knife is great for cutting, chopping and slicing oversized food. I liked the control grip that is ergonomic, comfortable,durable and well balanced size. This wide chef will quickly become the go-to knife for a chef's everyday tasks. This knife will cut large chunk of meat, vegetables, and even delicate big piece of fruits like Cantaloupe or watermelon. It's the most easiest to sharpen for it's half bolster, nothing gets in the way no matter what you sharpened it either stone or machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A chef with a twist. More weight and knuckle clearance on what I consider the perfect knife. The curves bolster makes the pinch grip so natually comfortable. The durable sharp edge works through any task easily. Good twist on the Pro 8" chef.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from finally a knife for big hands Finally a knife that takes my larger hands into consideration. The wider blade means more room for my fingers between the handle and the cutting board. The knife itself is also awesome. The German made forged steel blade is extremely sharp and easy to maintain. The curved shape bolster makes it so comfortable to hold the knife properly and has increased my accuracy. The steep curve on the front is great for quick slicing and the longer flat edge is perfect for chopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well balanced and aesthetically pleasing Balanced nicely, blade had a small knick on the edge out of box, smoothed it up. Cuts effortlessly.

Do you make a block that holds this knife as well as a cleaver?

Asked by: Jim Dandy
We do not have a block that would hold both this knife and a cleaver. We have one block that has a slot wide enough for a cleaver here: Because of the curved bolster on the Pro style, the knives fit best in a Pro block. We have several styles and colors of Pro blocks here:

How wide is this "ZWILLING Pro 8" Wide Chef's Knife", and how much wider is it compared to the regular "ZWILLING Pro 8" Chef's Knife"?

Asked by: dlovsky
Actually, it is 2.25 inches across the widest part of the blade at the heel — both per specification above under “Dimensions” and per measurement of my own knife.

This looks like a wonderful product — I saw it on YouTube in a food video, I think — but I can't seem to get it here in Australia, and Amazon doesn't ship it here.  Please help, I'd love to be able to use this knife, even as an amateur cook.

Is this knife blade of carbon steel or the softer stainless steel? The description does not reference "stainless steel."

Asked by: JamesKrieger
This series (and most of our knives) are made with stainless steel, though it is stainless steel with a high carbon content. This is our proprietary steel, ZWILLING Special Formula Steel, and is tempered in a very specific manner, resulting in a hardness of 57 on the Rockwell Hardness scale. Some of our Miyabi knives are made of stainless steel and have even harder blades. The only knives we make from Carbon Steel are the Kramer Euroline Carbon Collection (see link below). These are made from straight 52100 Carbon Steel, it is not stainless and will develop a patina. These have a hardness of 61. Carbon steel is an amazing material for blades, though it is important to note that they take a little more care than a regular stainless steel blade.
