HOW IT'S MADE

CRAFTED IN THE CITY OF BLADES – MANUFACTURING KNIVES

Since 1731 we`ve been crafting ZWILLING cutlery in Solingen, Germany – home of the world’s finest makers of swords, knives and scissors. Our master bladesmiths train for 8 years before they get their hands on our knives. It’s their life’s work. So when you hold a ZWILLING product, you can be sure you are holding a piece of history.

OUR RECIPE FOR SUCCESS

HOW IT'S MADE

CHOOSE ONLY THE BEST INGREDIENTS

Every great recipe starts with great ingredients. When it comes to our high quality knives and cookware it is our ZWILLING special formula steel. It’s called “ZWILLING Sonderschmelze” and features an impressively well-balanced combination of chrome and carbon, which is the secret to producing a steel of supreme quality.

HEAT IT UP

Forging is at the heart of all knife production. The knife is given its shape by the use of temperature and force under extreme conditions. SIGMAFORGE knives are precision-forged from a single piece of steel. The result is a perfect geometry- and we always strive for perfection when it comes to our knives.

COOL IT DOWN

We have optimized the hardening process to obtain the optimum degree of hardness – because the right hardness is simply everything. If the steel is too soft, the knife will become blunt. If it too hard, it will break. Our special ice-hardening process guarantees flexible FRIODUR® blades with extremely good cutting edge retention and exceptional corrosion resistance. They proudly live up to the ZWILLING name.

MAKE IT EASY ON THE EYES

You eat with all the senses – which is why we’d never produce knives that are purely functional. We want them to be beautiful tools that make a huge difference in every chef’s life. We don’t care if you are cooking for 30 people in the kitchen of a fancy restaurant or just for yourself at home. We just want you to enjoy the ease of use, the ergonomic design and the way the knife feels when you hold it. It’s more than just a knife.
