The Forged Premio Knives are forged from a Henckels-developed high-carbon stainless alloy, with a full tang supporting traditional 3-rivet handles. Combining nearly 300 years of the company's metallurgy and manufacture expertise, using select alloys, proprietary forging, grinding and hardening techniques, these knives hold a 30-degree cutting edge (as opposed to the conventional 45), made possible by the choice of alloy, Friodur ice hardening, and laser-controlled honing. Needless to say, with three centuries of experience, aspects such as balance, feel, and optimal blade shape are assured.
The right knife can turn an ordinary chopping job into a moment of mincing bliss. German-made Zwilling J.A. Henckels tools have been precisely crafted since 1731. Pair that heritage with modern innovations such as ergonomic handles and high-performance blades and you're literally experiencing the cutting edge. Zwilling J.A. Henckels International's coveted knives are in the hands of elite chefs around the globe. They should be in yours as well.
