Additional InformationZWILLING 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.

ZWILLING Pro 8" Wide Chef's Knife is rated out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by M dB 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.
