ZWILLING® Gourmet offers exceptional knives for an outstanding value.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, and more stain resistant. Precision-stamped from a single piece of high-quality stainless steel, these lighter weight blades don’t sacrifice strength. The laser-controlled edge is impressively sharp. Together, the traditional, triple-rivet handle and full tang provide stability and balance for confident cutting.
