A new dimension made possible by our equally new premium steel. ZWILLING developed this steel and used it for the first time in the new TAKUMI knife series. 100 layers in Damascus design enclose the FC 63 core and ensure the superior hardness and edge retention of all knives in the series. Japanese and ZWILLING knives become TAKUMI - a combination with a tradition and a new chapter in the success story.
The ultra-sharp Honbazuke sharpening is particularly noteworthy. The blade has been hand-sharpened in Seki by true masters of their craft and is the result of high-precision work. With our brand new premium steel as the middle layer, 101 layers of steel have been embossed, resulting in a blade that is in a class of its own: a hardness of 63 HRC, great initial sharpness and edge retention and at the same time maximum flexibility for cutting, roll-chopping and mincing.
The Santoku knife from the ZWILLING TAKUMI series is a true original, a knife made in Japan. Made in the Japanese city of Seki, this Santoku knife is the result of traditional oriental craftsmanship combined with German engineering.
