Zwilling was founded and registered in 1731 by Peter Henckels - making it one of the oldest trademarks in the world.
J.A. Henckels opened his first trading outlet in 1818 in Berlin, opening a shop in New York in 1883, followed a year later by Vienna and in 1897 by Copenhagen and Rotterdam.
In 1909 he opened up his first subsidiary in the U.S, followed by Canada, The Netherlands, Denmark, Switzerland, Japan, Italy, France, Spain and China.
In 2008, subsidiaries were set up in Great Britain and Brazil – so it’s fair to say Zwilling is a globally recognised brand that has certainly stood the test of time.
Henckels knives are manufactured by forging a single piece of high carbon stainless steel, which is ice hardened to improve stain resistance. This process makes way for improved cutting-edge retention, weight, balance, and reduced opportunity for metal fatigue – giving you high- quality kitchen utensils every time.
