Made in Germany, this professional-grade set contains the knives and tools necessary for completing any kitchen task. The gently curved handles, crafted with Mediterranean holm oak, feel comfortable in hand and add a beautifully warm appearance. The triple-riveted, full-tang design delivers impeccable geometry and perfect balance. This set comes with a sturdy knife block, featuring a whitewashed finish that will add a rustic touch to any kitchen counter. Mediterranean Holm Oak is not only beautiful—it is incredibly hard and strong. The Romans used this same wood to make wine casks, agricultural tools and wheels for their carts and carriages. The Pro Holm Oak collection by Zwilling J. A. Henckels combines their 280 years of knife-forging experience with the simplistic, yet innovative, design of renowned Italian architect Matteo Thun. An angled bolster helps you cut with enhanced precision, safety and comfort, and allows the entire length of the blade to be used for chopping, slicing, dicing and more. This unique feature also permits the entire length of the blade to be sharpened from bolster to tip. The artisan handles are made the old-fashioned way, on a machine dating back more than 100 years, and then finished by hand to ensure impeccable craftsmanship. Using Zwilling’s exclusive Sigmaforge® process, knives are precision-forged from a single piece of Friodur® ice-hardened high-carbon German stainless steel, laser-cut for optimal blade angles and finally polished by hand. This results in a sharper blade with excellent edge retention and superior resilience.
