A modern company with a long tradition.
The history of the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels brand starts on June 13, 1731 under the Gemini star sign. It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the “Twin” symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers´ Guild of Solingen. This symbol which is now well-known globally is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Today’s name ZWILLING J.A. Henckels was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.
ZWILLING J.A. Henckels is the gold standard for premium cutlery the world over. Marrying the tradition of expert German engineering and stainless steel know-how, ZWILLING J.A. Henckels has introduced flatware, cookware and kitchen tools. Today products by ZWILLING J.A. Henckels are recognized globally as the symbol for the highest possible quality and function.
