Description

This year ZWILLING marks its 290th birthday and we invite you to celebrate with us with a one-of-a-kind birthday knife. What started as a quality cutlery company in 1731 in Solingen, the City of Blades, has grown into a global modern kitchen specialist. The 290 knife bears witness to this passion for quality, innovation, and durability.

The ZWILLING Intercontinental 290 Years Limited Edition Knife is an iconic masterpiece of knifemaking available in a limited edition of just 2900 knives. It combines handicraft with a remarkable aesthetic. The riveted handle is designed for ease of cutting and is made of high quality Bocote wood, which gives the knife its unique look and feel. The razor-sharp blade is forged from our ZWILLING special formula steel, a flexible yet durable steel used exclusively by ZWILLING. Each of the 2900 knives is numbered individually and bears a unique etching mark.

Packaged in an exclusive, elegantly designed Thermobeech box that’s perfect for gifting, the Intercontinental Chef’s knife is accompanied by an informative inlay card signed by members of the ZWILLING board.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing knife I got this Chef Knife as a Christmas Gift this year and I am in love with it. The weight for me is perfect, I prefer a bit of a heft to my knifes, so if that's the case for you then I highly recommend it! The wooden handle is beautiful and each knifes handle is distinctly different on each knife. I got this knife in one of the factory stores and was able to choose a specific knife that suited my taste. I greatly recommend to go in person and find the one that calls to you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Behold! I just got my Zwilling chef "birthday knife." In a word: Behold! The construction and weight balance are exquisite. The Bolster design flows in my hand, and the steel is Germany's best. It feels I am holding Excalibur (hope I'm worthy). Spendy? Yes, but the way this baby glides through veggies and meats, along with its design, make it the last chef's knife I'll ever want. Oh, and this is the special edition. Get it now, and be amazed!
