Forging is at the core of the knife production. This is where the knife gets its shape under extreme conditions by using temperature and power. An intelligently controlled coordination of all parameters is very important for a precise forging result. It is this coordination of temperature and power that we have effectively improved. SIGMAFORGE knives are the result. We use temperature well calculated and controlled where it is needed. Only part of the blank is heated in the early stage. Uninfluenced by the heat the quality of the steel’s structure in the blade remains fully intact. A prerequisite for the special hardness, lasting sharpness and flexibility of the SIGMAFORGE knives. During the forging process the SIGMAFORGE knife is precision-forged from one single piece. Thus we ensure a flawless geometry piece for piece. Forged the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS way SIGMAFORGE knives promise top cutting properties.
The material’s optimum hardness is important: if the steel is too soft the knife goes blunt quickly. If it is too hard the knife will break easily. ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS has optimised the hardening process to find the steel’s optimum temper. The quality of FRIODUR marked knives has been improved by a special ice-hardening process. Icehardened blades are remarkably sharp, flexible and corrosion-resistant.
Good knives are a worthwhile investment. Properly looked after you will enjoy quality knives by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS for many years combined with the fun of passionate cooking they trigger again and again.
