A Long Tradition of German Craftsmanship
Zwilling J.A. Henckels was established in Solingen, Germany in 1731 by Peter Henckels, a German knife maker. His son, Johann Abraham Henckels, would later expand business operations to other locations around the globe, including Vienna and New York City, and become the company’s namesake. As one of the oldest knife producers in the world, Zwilling J.A. Henckels has refined and perfected some of the top knife-making techniques. Zwilling knives are made by forging a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel followed by tempering and finishing in liquid nitrogen to ensure superior durability and strength. This process helps to keep the metal sharp over time and improves the overall weight and balance of the brand’s knives.
