About the Manufacturer

The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand begins on June 13, 1731 (under the Gemini star sign). It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the "TWIN" symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers' Guild of Solingen. This symbol, which is now well-known all over the world, is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Today's name - ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS - was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.

ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS is a modern company which in its long tradition has always used innovative technology to manufacture products and services of the highest quality. The leading principle of ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has always been - our customers' satisfaction is our success - everybody is a customer. ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has consistently set out to supply its customers with the best possible products and services. Based on this commitment Peter Henckels established his company more than 275 years ago. Today they still consider themselves bound by the same commitment!

Good Knife

Ruben from Richmond, CA– Verified Buyer

I bought this knife since the previous knife I bought is a bit too light for me.
This knife is the same one I have when I worked as a cook-helper at a restaurant 30 years ago.
It's sharp, nice weight and good balance.

Happy with purchase

Maryrose from Tinley Park, IL– Verified Buyer

This knife sticks to food a bit (which slows my amazingly knife-skilled husband down). BUT it's WAY better than what we had before, and it's really sharp and does make things a lot faster! There are much more expensive knives out there so I couldn't expect it to be perfect Overall happy with the purchase. and totally worth the money.

Great knife

Rodney from Fort Worth, TX– Verified Buyer

Sharp and very well balanced. Don't forget to get a sharpening steel as well (it doesn't come with one).
