Perfection is in the Details

101 Layers of Exceptional Strength - The blade is constructed by forge welding layers of stainless steel with a final hardness of HRC 62+. This provides high strength, hardness, and wear resistance.

Unique Thunder Pattern - Each blade has its own unique pattern that will never be the same on any knife. The pattern is mimicked by the woodgrain on the sleek Pakkawood handle.

Razor Edge Retention - Exclusive Heat-treated technology to achieve HRC 60-62 makes our knife blades extremely sharp for an amazingly long time.

Full Tang Handle Secure, balanced and comfortable. The full tang handle is also non-slip, bacteria resistant, easy to clean, and waterproof.

Handcrafted Presentation Box - Every ZHEN knife comes inside a handcrafted box. Present this as a gift to family or friends who take pride in their culinary skills.

*DO NOT chop thick and hard bones or use on glass, tile, or granite cutting boards.

Hand wash with gentle dish soap, rinse, and towel dry immediately. We recommend sharpening ZHEN knives on a whetstone at a 15-degree angle.

ZHEN 101-layer German Damascus steel is forged in Germany and then imported to Taiwan where it is shaped, sharpened, and finished.
