Founded in 1731, the J.A. Henckels company is not only one of the world's oldest cutlery manufacturers, it's also one of the most well respected, creating best-selling knives guaranteed to last a lifetime.

The Story of Henckels

The Henckels brand name evokes an image of sleek, high-quality kitchen knives--not manicure accouterments, hairdressing scissors, wall brackets, garlic presses, or champagne tongs. Yet this 270-year-old cutlery manufacturer based in Solingen, Germany, makes all of these items and more.

In 1731, knife maker Johann Peter Henckels registered the "twin" symbol, now synonymous with heirloom-quality knives, making it one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Henckels pioneered the introduction of quality-control procedures in the cutlery industry and still adheres to exacting standards--combined with leading-edge technology and development--to create its superior products. Always an industry innovator, Henckels developed no-rust, acid-resistant stainless-steel blades by using a mix of carbon and stainless steel. His company was the first to produce dishwasher-safe knives with molded polypropylene handles that are both ergonomic and hygienic. It has also introduced a series of knives coated with Magna Dur, creating blades that remain permanently sharp without the need for resharpening. This tradition of innovation and commitment to excellence gives Henckels its reputation as the leader in the international cutlery market.



Henckels' Sintermetal Component Technology (SCT), allows three different grades of steel to be combined to form a single piece, fusing together the blade, bolster, and tang. What does this mean to the Professional Chef? A strong, high-quality knife that will last a lifetime--and says you mean business in the kitchen!
