ZWILLING Pro Holm Oak 8-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 76.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from so so so pretty! Love the feel of the knife and the value! I really like the Pro knives from Zwilling, but this is a special knife. I like the look of the wood handle when we are using it at the table, the regular ones seem so utilitarian and in the kitchen thats perfectly fine. I bring these knives to the table because they look so much more elegant and yet they have the same feel and cutting acumen of the Pro series that I use in the kitchen. They do require more attention as the handles need to be dried after washing but I take good care of my knives anyway and only use these for a seated dinner presentation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great German knife I love this knife. 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. I also love this Holm Oak wood, I typically like a darker grain of wood, but this one looks so good against the stainless steel and it’s a really durable wood, which is great for longevity. A great knife to invest in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from really dependable knife i had the pro and it worked wonders for me, and made me love this brand. now i have this knife and i love it too, it is just as good and has never failed me. as a chef i truly appreciate the craftsmanship and durability that this brand and this specific knife bring to the table. there were some very minor issues with the fit and finish of the handle but that is not a problem at all and does not affect the way i feel about the knife.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great knife untreated handle The knife is great! Ergonomic features make the knife easy to use. Disappointed in the oak handles coming untreated. Under normal hand washing, the handles swelled and began to separate from the knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wide chef knife!!! This Mediterranean Holm Oak handle has a handsome wood grain and a wonderful feel on the hand, it is comfortable, and it has a unique feel to it. One of the best picks for smaller chef knife but if preferably rather covers more food, so this wide chef is perfect for the job. This 6" chef knife is neither too small nor too big in my hand. It is perfect for slicing, cutting and chopping meat, poultry, vegetables and fruits. A unique curved bolster supports the professional pinch grip, with thumb and index finger on the blade, for safe cutting and less fatigue. Ergonomic and versatile knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Distinctively The quality of this knife is unquestionable. It is part of the Pro line, one of Zwilling's best. The steel will hold up for a lifetime and the knife requires little maintenance, just an annual sharpening and a weekly honing (see the 2-stage sharpeners if you are timid about honing). It has an angled bolster, a new design features that matches the grip of professional chef's. It keeps the thumb and forefinger in the correct position for maximum control. I like arc of this knife too; great for dicing, mincing, chiffonade and julienne. The Pro Holm Oak line features an oak wood handle. This hard, beautiful wood will be enhanced over time. Rub a little mineral oil into it to keep it rich and smooth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The curved bolster on these Pro Holm Oak knives encourages the use of the pinch grip. When held properly this 10" blade is easy to control, feels stable and tackles any tough project in the kitchen. The Holm Oak line of Pro knives is really quite stunning. The light wood handle complements the steel of the blade and the 3 rivets on the handle giving these knives a new modern look. The handle is smooth and well weighted and the curved bolster keeps wrist fatigue to a minimum during long periods of cutting. All and all this is a very handsome knife at a very approachable price point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best If you're looking for the top of the line knife but enjoy the rustic look of a wood handle then look no further. The Zwilling Pro series, known for its unique curved bolster and perfectly weighted feel, is available with an oak handle. You will never hold another knife with a more comfortable bolster for the professional pinch grip. Made from specially formulated German no stain steel these knives are harder thus retaining their sharpness longer than other knives. The patented ice hardening process ensures flexibility to resist chips and cracks.

Other than the handle, is there a difference between the Pro Holm Oak 8" Chefs Knife and the 8" Pro?

Asked by: Jerry37
No, the only difference between the two styles of knives is the material of the handle.
