Kitchenware specialists Online Kitchenware announced today the launch of the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels Twin Select kitchen knife range. These impressive razor sharp kitchen knives are available in many sizes to suit all tasks in the kitchen.
Online Kitchenware sales manager, Simon West, is very animated about this product. "We are very enthusiastic about the Twin Select Knives by ZWILLING J.A Henckels because they produce such high quality products. I simply could not believe how sharp these knives are, and the quality of the finish is astonishing," said West.
Based on the "Five Star" range, the Twin Select knife features an all steel handle, developed by the Fraunhofer institute and the involvement of professional chefs. The result is very special ergonomically designed handle and an outstanding design to prevent tiring – even after several hours of “slaving over a hot stove”.
No compromise concerning sharpness, these are the hallmarks of professional knives for the future.
These are sure to be a winner, and will grace any kitchen worktop. All knives come in presentation boxes which would be ideal for Christmas and Birthday gifts.

Following years of research ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has developed the Sintermetal Component Technology (SCT). ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS is the only cutlery manufacturer worldwide that has
mastered this innovative technology.
The quality of a knife is decisively influenced by the grade of steel used. The most important characteristics of the steel used to make the blade are corrosion resistance and hardness.
They are achieved by the corresponding chemical composition and appropriate heat treatment.
Different types of steel are used in the cutlery industry of which stainless steel has become predominant during the last few decades.
Stainless steel - special formula:
Until 1965 ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS produced its own steel. The company did intensive research how to optimise the qualities of steel to meet the specific requirements of the cutlery industry. Based on these findings and research results ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS´ special formula with the optimum ratio of carbon, chromium and other components was developed.
Following intensive research ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has developed an innovating honing technique that guarantees an extremely high initial cutting performance. This technique is mainly used for the Asian-style knives (e.g. Santoku knife). After grinding the blade gets a fine-polish treatment to remove even the tiniest burrs.
ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has further improved the cutting performance of bread and utility knives. The employment of new technology together with a more aggressive scalloped edge has achieved a distinctly better cutting performance. The force needed for cutting has been considerably reduced because the scallop has been electrolytically deburred.
