Re: Kitchen knives

You should contact their office in Germany. They handle the Swiss market. They should be able to tell you what stores in Zurich carry the model that you would like to purchase.

The email is here:

Tramontina Germany GMBH
Kamekestr. 21 - 50672 - Köln
Phone: 49 (0) 221 7789 9910
Fax: 49 (0) 221 77899 9190
E-mail: info@tramontina.de
www.tramontina.com

Good luck.

Any good knife store will also carry a variety of whetstones for sharpening.

Re: Kitchen knives

Victorinox have opened a new flagship store on the corner of Rennweg and Bahnhofstrasse in Zurich. It's huge and should have everything you're looking for.

Re: Kitchen knives

Foto Ganz should have some of those, not sure about all the product lines. Frankly, for those things, it's probably cheapest to order them from bhphoto.com or adorama.com and have them shipped to your home country.

Re: Kitchen knives

Sibler have a nice collection of knives, also high-end stuff and whetstones:

I would also recommend Foto Ganz for pro-photo needs.

Zwilling/Henkels are great, I have a dozen or more, most bought there.

They last forever, unless you try to open a coconut.

It just depends what you want to spend. 200.- + for a decent knife that will last forever if you look after it. Or a middle range knife for about 60.- to 70.-. Victorinox are not bad and I have Chef friends who use these in their work kitchens, but they blunt fairly quickly, so get a knife iron as well.

Took my 10" Zwilling 4-Star to a coconut and whacked it with a hammer, the blade broke near the handle.

Still have the blade somewhere.

Bough another one, as the 6" and 8" that were left didn't satisfy me as much.

Its the back of the Knife you need to use, preferably a cleaver, once the husk is off. An irritating presenter, but good technique.

I have one 8" Zwilling knife, a small paring knife and a sheffield steel knife I bought at Sainsbury about 15 years ago. The Zwilling knife is a replacement for this.
And a carving knife of course.

I'm never sure why people think they need so many knives unless they just like them.

And proper-sized tablespoons, don't forget those.
How anyone manages to bake without at least one as a measuring unit is beyond me.

Re: Kitchen knives

Again sorry for my English
I buy Zwiling waterstone 6000/8000 in Dubai for about 70 USD, and its very good waterstone. I think Zwilling knives is very good too, but very expensive.

I want to buy forged knives. This knives must be not only sharpen, it must be beautiful, aesthetically acceptable, and not expensive.

May be somebody think that is incompatible, but for my opinion Tramontina Century has good steel, it is sharpen, beautiful, not expensive.

I buy Tramontina Century Santoku for about 30 USD. And look here please <Russian URL removed>

The second photo:
1.2 большой шеф 24011/008-20-33,5-3,0-1440

1440 is a price in Russian money, 1440/64=22,5 USD

Zwilling or Victorinox like this cheif knive will be about 100-150 USD min.
