product details

TWIN 1731 is designed by the internationally acclaimed designer Matteo Thun. Years of work culminated in the ZWILLING wedge geometry that improves comfort and optimizes cutting technique. This innovative curved bolster is meant to be an extension of the hand, supporting the professional grip with thumb and index finger on the blade Developed for bearings in aerospace engineering, the highperformance Cronidur 30 steel boasts impressive toughness and corrosion resistance that is 100 times higher than standard steel. Combined with ZWILLING's signature ice-hardening technique, this FRIODUR blade is exceptionally sharp and durable. Each knife is precision-forged with ZWILLING's SIGMAFORGE process, resulting in a remarkably sturdy, balanced and flexible blade. With an incredibly sharp, laser-controlled edge, the knives are honed and hand-finished by the most skilled artisans.

    amazing bread knife
    Sep 08, 2020

    This knife is a masterpiece. The Conidur steel blade is extremely sharp. The German forged blade is very durable and holds an edge for a long time. The curved bolster makes it a true extension of my arm giving accurate straight cuts. The handle is attractive and very comfortable to hold. The blade is great for bread, tomatoes, melons and anything else with a thicker exterior and soft inside.

    For a top-of-the-line bread knife, the Twin 1731 series is it!! It doesn't get any better than this from Zwilling! Constructed with the curved bolster, much like the Pro series, this will give you extra comfort and control for your hand and finger in the pinch grip form. Made with the ice-hardened process, it will be super-sharp, stay sharp and remain durable and rust and chip free for the life of the knife! It still has a flexible blade, while remaining sturdy and with a good knife balance. Finished by artisans who care about every detail and make this knife one to keep and pass down.

    Twin 1731 series are among the nicest knives you will ever use. Beautifully forged from Cronidur 30 steel which reaches an impressive 60 on the hardness scale these knives will retain their sharpness use after use and are highly corrosion and chip resistant. The bolster is forged with a unique curve to provide the thumb and forefinger a comfortable pinch grip. The ebony handle is unmatched in beauty and simplicity. The teeth of this serrated edge are designed to first puncture the outer crust allowing the edge to glide smoothly through the softer inside without tearing or crushing.

    Ultimate Bread Knife
    May 16, 2020

    How many people can brag that their knives are made from the same steel that was used on space shuttle bearings! Cronidur 30 is 100x more durable than any steel on the market. The solid ebony handle is so beautiful and has the most incredible weight. It feels like an extension of my arm. The curved bolster assures me that I'm holding the knife correctly and helps me slice through everything with ease. The serrated blade is designed to minimize wear and to slice through bread without smashing or tearing. It will also handle large melons with no problem at all. 1731 line was designed as an anniversary edition; only a limited number of trees where cut down. So it truly is a collector's item.

    The last bread knife you will ever buy!
    May 06, 2020

    These are hands down the best German knives on the market. An heirloom collection that will last your life time and those after you. The Ebony wood handles are slim and feel smooth and secure in the hand and the curved bolster is made to make the pinch grip comfortable and puts less stress on the wrist. With a super sharp serration this bread knife will cut like a Japanese style knife and the Cronidur 30 steel keeps the edge sharp through the toughest projects.
