Whether you are a skilled home cook or a professional chef, the Zwilling Pro 12-Piece Knife Block Set provides the right cutlery. This 18-slot block comes with the Zwilling Pro 4-inch Paring Knife, 5-inch Serrated Utility Knife, 7-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife, 8-inch Bread Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, four 4.5-inch Steak Knives, 9-inch Sharpening Steel, and Kitchen Shears. The paring knife is an essential tool to handle smaller cutting tasks, such as peeling, coring, and pitting. The blade tapers to a sharp, pointed tip. The Santoku knife slices, dices, and minces, with a thinner blade than the chef's knife and indentations that create air pockets to push food away from the blade. The serrated utility knife allows you to neatly slice foods with a tough exterior and soft interior. The bread knife slices through crust without compressing the loaf. The chef's knife is an all-purpose knife that can mince herbs, dice vegetables, and slice through thick rinds and large cuts of meat. The set of four steak knives is designed for cutting steak at the table. The honing steel realigns knife blades between sharpenings. Use the shears to snip herbs and cut food packaging. The block protects knife blades while safely storing cutlery, and the extra slots allow for expansion of your collection.
Zwilling takes pride in the user-friendly design of the Pro collection, with a unique blade shape and ergonomic bolster. The high carbon blades are forged from a single piece of proprietary special formula steel that will not stain. The ice-hardened FRIODUR blades have a 15-degree edge angle on each side for added sharpness, and 57 Rockwell hardness for excellent edge retention. The blade shape makes it comfortable to use both Western rocking cuts or Asian-style chopping cuts, and the curved bolster facilitates the pinch grip for safer cutting with reduced fatigue. The ergonomic polypropylene handles are permanently bonded and secured with three rivets. Full tang construction provides additional balance and strength while cutting.
Each Zwilling Pro knife is honed and hand-finished by artisans. Made in Germany.
