The roots of this business unit go back to 1731 when Peter Henckels, a knifemaker from Solingen, had the sign of the twins registered in the knifemakers’ role. This event took place on June 13th and was therefore governed by the zodiac sign of Gemini. Henckels laid the foundation stone for one of the oldest and most traditional brands of the world. The product range, which once began with cutlery, now expands to the whole spectrum of superior kitchen, food and table culture.
With its different brands, the business unit Zwilling Kitchenware offers numerous product lines of knives, scissors, cookware, cutlery and kitchen tools. The high-quality brand articles belong to the medium to upper price range and are appreciated all over the world. The biggest markets, next to the home market in Germany and other European countries, are China, Japan and the USA.
