Zwilling J.A. Henckels has launched the new Kanren cutlery collection exclusively at Williams Sonoma. The company said the collection is named after the Japanese word for “connection.”
The hand-honed Honbazuke blade is designed to slice, dice, chop and carve with scalpel-like sharpness, stated the company. The 48-layer Damascus-style blade is made of high performance carbide stainless steel, while the triple-riveted Micarta handles feature Zwilling’s signature curved bolster.
The collection is available in a 12-piece set that includes an 8-inch chef’s knife, 4-inch paring knife, 5.5-inch prep knife, 8-inch chef’s knife, 9-inch carving knife, 9-inch bread knife, 4.5-inch steak knives (set of four), twin Select kitchen shears, a diamond steel rod and a 12-slot acacia storage block.
Other configurations include a 7-piece easel set, 7-piece block set, as well as open stock. The collection has a suggested retail price range of $165 to $2,028.
