J A Henckels Knife



Would you be interested in some background information about the Zwilling J A Henckels Knife company, and the innovative features their kitchen knives offer that can help make your cooking easier?


These superb knives were first manufactured in the cutlery capital of the world – Solingen, Germany, in 1731.


Thanks to 270 years of innovative craftsmanship, the Zwilling J A Henckels knife has a distinguished reputation, and won awards of excellence in the World’s Fairs of 1851, 1893 and 1915.


In 1939, the Zwilling J A Henckels knife company received a patent for the innovative Friodur® ice-hardening process.

With this process their knife blades, made of a special steel formula, are quenched to below freezing temperatures during the heat treating process, resulting in superior blades.


In 1992, the Zwilling J A Henckels knife company introduced Sintermetal Technology.

With this technology, while the blade, bolster, and tang sections of the knife are made of different alloys, the sections are fused together into one solid piece, which allows them to work in perfect balance with one another.
