OUR BRAND STORIES

OUR BRAND STORIES

The ZWILLING story began on June 13th, 1731 under the sign of Gemini. That’s why our logo is a set of twins. Even though our logo changed quite a bit over the years and the small premium knife manufacturer became a global culinary leader, our quality standards have never changed. In fact, it’s quite the opposite- it became a tradition. Along with many others.

QUALITY

We mentioned that we love traditions, right? Here is one of them: quality. You can feel it each time you use one of our kitchen tools. We accept nothing less than the best qualities possible- whether we’re talking about materials, technologies or the production process itself.

PROGRESS

From a little forge in Solingen that produces quality knives and blades to a worldwide company that is setting the standard in high-quality cookware, we have come a long way. And if you want to learn more about the milestones in our 287-year old history, we have good news: they are just one click away.

INNOVATIONS

Over the years we have evolved into inventors. We invented the ice hardening process for FRIODUR® blades to obtain the optimum degree of hardness of the steel. And we came up with SIGMAFORGE® knives that areprecision forged from a single piece of steel to produce a perfect geometry. One of our very earlier inventions was the tool with the difficult-to-pronounce name «Küchenhilfe» (literally Kitchen-helper) that is one of the most copied scissors worldwide. Which we totally understand, because it’s quite copy worthy.

LOYALTY
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 and craftsmanship.

THE JOY OF COOKING

Think about the joy of a great dinner with your favorite people. Not only the moment when everyone is sitting at the table, only minutes away from enjoying the best meal ever. Think about the moment when you start preparing it. The unpacking of the groceries, the cutting of the ingredients, the joking around, the tasting here and there, the moment you smell the sauce which has been specially made according to a family recipe. Our products are made for moments like this- and make them even more fun.
