The Kramer Euroline Essential 5" Utility Knife by Zwilling is ideal for slicing tomatoes, cubing potatoes, or cutting meats and cheeses. This perfectly balanced, razor-sharp and versatile utility knife breezes through work like an extension of your own hand. This 5 inch utility knife is a size up from a paring knife, and is well suited for medium-sized cutting jobs too big for a parer. The utility knife is also known as a sandwich knife, and is a great every-day use addition to the home or professional knife block.
Each knife in the Euroline Essential Collection has been optimized for kitchen use thanks to a wide blade for increased knuckle clearance, a rounded spine for comfort while using a pinch grip, and an ergonomic triple-riveted handle for secure, easy cutting. Revolutionary FC61 carbide steel holds an extremely sharp edge and is incredibly durable, while the brushed polymer handle made of Duracon, a glass fiber enhanced POM, and full-tang construction result in a perfectly balanced knife that’s a joy to use.
Each Kramer Essential Collection knife is made in Seki City, Japan, and undergoes a rigorous 100-step, 42-day manufacturing process during which it passes through the hands of 45 expert artisans. As a finishing touch, each knife receives a central mosaic pin handcrafted in Bob Kramer’s personal studio. Built to withstand the pressures of everyday use in busy kitchens, this is one set that will be with you for years to come.

DESIGNED BY A MASTER TO OUTPERFORM EVERY OTHER KNIFE
In 1992, Bob Kramer moved from working as door-to-door kitchen knife sharpener to opening his own knife-forging shop in Seattle. As a former chef, Kramer knew what made an exceptional knife, and with training from knife forging artisans, he learned what it took to create this essential tool. Bob Kramer is one of only about 100 Master Bladesmiths in the United States, and is the only one with this honor who creates only kitchen knives.
