A modern company with a long tradition, milestones at a glance.
The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand starts on June 13, 1731 (under the Gemini star sign). It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the “Twin” symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers´ Guild of Solingen. This symbol which is now well-known globally is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world. Today’s name ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.
Today products by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS are recognised globally as the symbol for the highest possible quality and function.
