Additional Information
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 8.
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 Much Wider Blade This is one of my go to knives. Its a top of the line Zwilling German knife that created from their Special Formula Steel and its been ice hardened which means to us durability and sharpness. The knife is also forged from one piece of steel so there are no welded parts on this knife, which can be a point of stress or breakage. The blade is much wider than the traditional chefs knife so you can use it as a scraper, of course turning over the blade first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Think rocking cleaver. I'm in no way experienced enough to rate a knifes quality. The five stars are for the knifes brilliant ergonomics. The Zwilling Pro 8" Wide is like a job specific garden tool. My Fathers produce box business naturally immersed me in California's pre supermarket produce industry. As a boy I was taught early on to hold the wide end of the knife between the thumb with the fore and middle fingers curled over the top of the blade. The increased control and safety became obvious in those very first minutes. This Zwilling Wide blade and angled yoke facilitate this type of grip extremely well. The idea is not too unlike using an Asian cooks cleaver but with a massive cutting edge rocker which facilitates planting the knifes tip and guillotining large portions in a single stroke. Like wide snow skis, why did the idea take so long? My only suggestion would be to dress down the somewhat sharp rear edge of the blade between the yoke and the cutting edge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I use this knife daily in my kitchen and it has never met a job it can't do. The shape of the blade is perfect for the cutting motion or the rocking mothion and you use the entire blade thanks to the curved bolster construction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was sold the second I held it It feels like a natural extension of the hand. Its like the Asian vegetable cleaver was adapted for Western cooking.

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.
