The Kramer by Zwilling Meiji 8 inch Chef's Knife is a result of the collaboration between Zwilling J.A. Henckels and Bob Kramer, the first Master Bladesmith to specialize in kitchen cutlery. Made from revolutionary fine carbide FC61 steel, this knife offers the signature sharpness for which Japanese knives are known and is protected by 100 layers of nickel and stainless steel. Beneath its distinctive exterior, Kramer's distinctive etched ladder Damascus pattern provides added durability. Thanks to an innovative, ice hardening process, the FRIODURx2® blades offer remarkable durability, sharpness, and cutting performance. Exquisite to hold and behold, the handles feature a decorative center pin handcrafted in Kramer's Washington workshop. These unparalleled knives are built to last a lifetime.

  • MetroKitchen.com recommends washing your knives by hand and then immediately drying them. Do not let your knives soak in water.
  • Avoid cleaners containing bleach or citrus extracts, as they may stain the surface of your knives.
  • For longer lasting knives, cut on a wooden or wood fiber cutting boards. Cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass quickly dulls blades.
  • To maintain a sharper cutting edge, use a sharpening steel, preferably each time after using your knives.
  • It's best to store your Zwilling knife so the edge and your fingers are protected, preferably in a block or in-drawer knife tray.
  • We suggest using a meat cleaver when you need to cut through bone, otherwise you can damage your knife blade.
  • Lifetime warranty from Zwilling J.A. Henckels with normal use and proper care.
  • Made in Seki,Japan.
