This Zwilling Life knife set is comprised of a knife block, five kitchen knives and scissors. Especially the SharpBlock knife block is remarkable: it is enhanced with the so-called KIS technology. This means that three of the six slots (for knives with a smooth edge) are enhanced with small ceramic sharpening stones, positioned in the ideal sharpening angle. Every time you replace or remove a knife, your knife is being sharpened. The icons with each slot are very practical. They clearly show which knife belongs in which slot. Can't go wrong!
The blades are made from ice-hardened steel. The result is the right hardness of the steel. The quality of the steel convinces with an optimal balance of chromium and carbon content. According to Zwilling this leaves you with the perfect mix between hardness, sharpness retention, ability to sharpen and resistance to chipping.
The ergonomically shaped handle feels great in hand, even in large hands. The handle is relatively rough. As such it feels comfortable, even while wearing gloves or when your hands are wet. The handle is enhanced with the characterizing Zwilling logo.
The transition from the crop to the blade is seamless. This is ergonomically sound, but also great in terms of hygiene. However, we recommend cleaning the knives by hand. When you clean them in your dishwasher the blade and handle can wear out faster.
