The 7" Slim chef's knife is a reliable performer for all kitchen tasks - chopping herbs, dicing onions, mincing garlic, etc. The slim version of the Pro chef 's knife features a medium-sized handle, a 9% smaller blade profile, and is 24% lighter than the original Pro chef's knife. This makes it perfect for smaller hands and the lighter weight increases nimbleness, ergonomics, and comfort. The Zwilling Pro knives are the most user-friendly knives on the market. A unique curved bolster acts as an extension of your hand, supporting the professional pinch grip (thumb and index finger on the blade), for safe cutting and less fatigue.
