represented brands / ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS / KNIVES / cronidur
The name Cronidur is derived from the blade itself which is made from a single piece of Cronidur 30 steel. Used in the aerospace industry, this steel is designed to repel corrosion under the most extreme conditions and retain hardness without being brittle. Each knife is precision forged using Zwilling’s Sigmaforge process resulting in an exceptionally hard yet flexible blade.
Zwilling’s Fridour ice-hardening technique results in a harder, sharper blade that is corrosion resistant and highly elastic.
A curved and recessed bolster provides a seamless transition from handle to blade and supports the thumb for better balance and safety.
The ergonomic handle is made of full-linen Micarta—a composite with the grained look of wood and the longevity of plastic.
