Way back in 1731 Peter Henckels had the idea to register the ZWILLING trademark with the Cutler’s Guild of Solingen, Germany. A brilliant idea, in our opinion. Because that makes ZWILLING one of the oldest brands in the world today. Today ZWILLING represents much more than just the traditional cutlery that made them famous in Germany. Zwilling also owns the kitchenware brands Staub, Ballarini, Miyabi, and Demeyere.
