The Zwilling Pro chef's knife 18 cm is enhanced with a broad, solid blade. An 'all-rounder' for the professional and amateur chef. The perfect knife when cutting vegetables and finely chopping herbs. Chef's knives have a heigh blade of approximately 4 to 5 cm to make sure you can place the fingers of the hand you use to hold the ingredients against the side of the blade. This way you can work safely and quickly.
The blade is made from ice-hardened Friodur steel. During this process the steel is heated in 4 stages to 1000°C and cooled to-70 °C. Zwilling perfected this technique, and guarantees optimum sharpness, sustainability, elasticity and corrosion resistance. You also sharpen the knife in five steps. The result is a perfectly sharpened knife. The crop of the knife does not extend to the edge of the blade to make sure you can easily sharpen it on a sharpening stone.
Thanks to the seamless construction and the materials used, knives from the Zwilling Pro collection are dishwasher proof. We do, however, recommend washing them by hand because the detergent in a dishwasher can affect the knives in the long run.
The kitchen knives from the Pro collection are enhanced with a blade that is forged from one piece of steel. The full tang blade seamlessly merges with the plastic handle. The handle is secured to the steel with three rivets. The transition between the handle and steel is seamless. No dirt can accumulate in between. These knives are enhanced with a classic design and appeal to those who prefer heavier knives.
