Zwilling J.A. Henckels is the possessor of one of the world's oldest manufacturing legacies: a German knife making tradition that goes back over 275 years. Today, the brands of The Zwilling Group, including J.A. Henckels International, are recognized everywhere as symbols of the highest-possible quality and value.
The Henckels legacy dates back to 1731, when the German knife maker Peter Henckels registered his trademark with the cutlery guild of Solingen, known to this day as the City of Blades for its long-and now world-renowned—history of fine blademaking. The date, June 13, under the astrological sign of Gemini, inspired Henckels to register the Zwilling (German for twins) symbol, which is now one of the world's oldest trademarks. His son, Johann Abraham Henckels, would later establish J.A. Henckels as the company name.
J.A. Henckels International is the value brand of Zwilling J.A. Henckels. Drawing upon the knowledge and experience of the Zwilling J.A. Henckels tradition, J.A. Henckels International creates affordable, high-quality kitchen knives for the gourmet cooking needs of the at-home chef. The J.A. Henckels International collection offers kitchen knife series of an uncommon breadth, enabling you to meet the challenge of finding a suitable and well-functioning knife for every culinary purpose, be it boning, carving, or other.
A knife's quality is largely determined by the grade of steel used to make its blade—a fact with which J.A. Henckels is intimately familiar. Until 1965, the company actually produced its own steel, intensively researching how to optimize steel's qualities for the unique needs of the kitchen cutlery industry. Today, the joint Henckels tradition of cutlery manufacturing and steel production makes the company uniquely suited to match the best steel to the desired kitchen knife purpose.
The J.A. Henckels knives available at CutleryGalore.com include the Forged Synergy knife series and Forged Premio knife series.
