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.

    Does the job but could be better
    Aug 11, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Multiple of my friends and family members are using Zwilling and all of them are very happy with it. I purchased the 7 piece pro set and it arrived within a few days. I am very happy with the knives but not entirely impressed by the sharpening steel. Will give it another try, but I may need to look for a better option for sharpening.

    This sharpening steel was made with the Twin 1731 series of knives in mind. Not only does the gorgeous ebony handle match the knives perfectly but the steel rod is capable of aligning the super hard Cronidur 30 steel that the knives are made from.

    Honing is essential in between sharpenings to keep your knives sharp. This honing steel is for a great value and will maintain the edge of your knife. This is a great addition for your 1731 collection by Matteo Thun.

    Top Quality Tungsten Carbide Steel
    May 14, 2020

    The tungsten steel can maintain the edge of almost any knife, whether it's German or Japanese; much harder than your typical honing steel. Honing is the maintenance performed usually once a week, or whenever your knife isn't cutting the way you want it to. It's a simple process that anyone can learn; but it doesn't hurt to watch the video on this website to perfect your technique. The solid ebony handle is incredibly beautiful and has a great weight.

    An excellent accessory!
    May 08, 2020

    This 1731 honing steel is perfect for all your 1731 knives collections if this was not part of your purchase. This is an excellent honing steel for both your German steel and Japanese steel knives. A good honing steel is a must-have kitchen tools for every serious cook, it is an essential tool, and a great investment. A honing steel does not sharpen the knife, it is a maintenance to rather straightens the blade in order to restore the edge and improve sharpness.

    Amazing sharpening steel! This is made from Tungsten/Wolfram steel which is hard enough to hone both German and Japanese knives. The design is beautiful and the handle feels stable and smooth in the hand.
