Description

TWIN Signature knives are precision stamped from a single piece of German steel, resulting in lighter weight knives that do not compromise sharpness. The knives are made of proprietary special formula steel that has been perfected for over 280 years. Combined with ZWILLING's signature ice-hardening technique, these FRIODUR blades are harder, sharper, they will NOT STAIN or chip and they retain their sharpness longer.To ensure an ideal cutting angle, the laser-controlled edge is incredibly sharp and is honed and hand-finished by the most skilled artisans. The three-rivet handle embedded with the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels logo provides optimum durability.

  • Manufactured in Germany
  • Special formula high carbon NO STAIN steel
  • One-piece precision-stamped blade for a lighter weight knife without sacrificing strength
  • Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade starts sharper, stays sharper longer, and has superior resilience
  • Ergonomic polymer handle is perfectly bonded to full tang
  • Traditional, three-rivet design is embedded with ZWILLING J.A. Henckels logo
  • 57 Rockwell Hardness = excellent edge retention
  • Edge angle 15 degrees per side

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The gift that has kept on giving My boyfriend and I cook together often and we’ve always made do with whatever knife we had clean (I know- shame!). We finally purchased this knife and it has truly changed our experience in the kitchen. It’s comfortable to hold, feels durable, slices like a dream AND is dishwasher safe. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent knife A great knife that is not heavy. The German steel blade is super sharp. The construction of the blade as with all Zwilling knives stay sharp for a long time and are easy to resharpen. The handle is very comfortable but also very light. I love how it feels when I use this knife.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Knife I needed a knife to cut up my veggies to make fresh juice. I couldn't even cut off the bottom of a head of celery with my old Chef knife. The quality and weight of this knife is amazing... Now I need to learn how to keep it this sharp all the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good Che'sf knife that will last for years! Have had mine for over 2 years and still has a sharp edge and cuts through most anything. Use this one almost daily and also use it as a slicer/utility for meats. At this price, it's a no-brainer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stampled Blade That is Ice Hardened The knife in made our of German Special Formula Steel and ice hardened with is a process usually reserved for fully forged knives. So blade is sharp and is extremely durable. Three riveted, ergonomic handle provides stability when you cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely User Friendly In need of new cutlery, I let my Grandma choose from among a wide assortment to find the one she found to be most comfortable. Twin Signature was her top pick; German made, extremely comfortable handle, perfect weight, and extra sharp.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent choice for your 'go to' knife An 8-inch chef's knife is the backbone of a knife set. It's design has evolved over time and countless cook's experiences to become the optimal shape to serve a broad range of cutting needs and cooking styles. This chef’s knife has that legacy built in. The quality of this knife will meet any challenge a home kitchen can provide. The Signature line of stamped knives is made Germany from one of Zwilling's top quality steels. These knives are made with German craftsmanship and precision. Lighter than forged knives, this line is very popular. The sculpted handles fold into the palm of most people’s hands comfortably. The steel is strong, stable and holds an edge well. They can be and should be sharpened regularly. I recommend hand washing so they always look like new; but they are dishwasher safe.

In specifications section says country of origin is China..... yet elsewhere says manufactured in Germany. Where exactly are these made? Where is the steel coming from? Germany or China? 

Asked by: Pknp
The knife is manufactured in Germany and steel is sourced from Germany. There is an error in the specifications section. We have submitted for correction. Sorry for the confusion.

If it's made in Germany why it doesn't say "Germany" or "Made in Germany" on the blade, like your other knifes? Thank you.

Asked by: Al Beliko
Many of our images are taken of prototypes a non-production run items. The actual knife itself will say "Made In Germany" perpendicular to the blade, under the twelve boxes, near the base of the blade.
