The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Zwilling Pro 2.75” bird’s beak peeling knife is a specialized blade that’s highly effective at what it’s designed for. The blade is extremely sharp and made from high-quality steel, allowing it to cut closer to the peel, preserving more of the fruits’ flesh. It also fits nicely around large pits, like those of peaches or plums, making halving them ergonomic and easy.

However, due to this specialization, the knife isn’t particularly versatile. It’s not great for slicing, though I’ve had success with getting very thin slices of apple or peach – so long as I started off with a smaller piece to begin with.

The small size of the blade means it struggles with cutting through larger pieces of fruit or vegetables. I end up keeping a larger knife handy when using this one for that reason. This is partly from a few attempts to cut bigger pieces of apple, resulting in the knife slipping and getting its tip wedged in the cutting board.

When my vegetable peeler broke, this knife shone – it was much easier to peel potatoes and carrots with it than with a standard pairing knife. It’s also my go-to for peeling apples or peaches to make pies or cobbles. It did a good job halving cherries, too – as the curved blade slid around the pit – when I made a cherry pie.

Overall, for those who want a knife for peeling, coring, or detail work, Zwilling makes an excellent tool.

Ideal for
  • Excellent for peeling apples, peaches, and vegetables.
  • Great for halving drupes such as peaches and plums, as the curved blade fits nicely around the pit.
  • Works well for coring strawberries and tomatoes.
Not ideal for
  • The pointed tip can get stuck in the cutting board if the knife slips.
  • It can slice, but it's better to have a second knife handy.

The Zwilling Pro 2.75" Bird's Beak Peeling Knife is the perfect tool for peeling potatoes, fruits, and vegetables with ease. Designed in Italy by Matteo Thun and made in Germany by ZWILLING J.A. Henckels, this knife is the result of 280 years of experience in knife making and rigorous study of how knives are used. The unique curved bolster supports a professional pinch grip for safe cutting and less fatigue while encouraging cutting with improved precision, safety, and comfort.

Key Features:

  • Curved bolster encourages cutting with improved precision, safety, and comfort
  • Made from Special Formula High-Carbon NO STAIN stainless steel that is ice-hardened to stay sharper longer
  • Precision-honed blade ensures ideal cutting angle for sharpness and durability
  • Full tang construction provides superb stability while triple-riveted handle offers a comfortable grip
  • Dishwasher safe but hand wash recommended

Elizabeth was amazing
5 /5
I was doing research on line for pans when I came across a curated ad. I thought I would give it a try because I was not having any luck getting non stick pans that would last past 6 months. Curated matched me up with Elizabeth and through a series of questions, she had recommended about 3 different brands that I had never heard of before. She was very knowledgeable about the products and made me feel comfortable about making the purchase. I even bought a sauté pan from the same line that she recommended. That’s how confident I was with her recommendation. Elizabeth was very quick to respond to my text and a joy to work with. Can’t wait to get my pans. I have no doubt that they will last for years. Highly recommend giving Curated a try.

Great working with Kylee!

I clicked on Curated off of a google add while I was researching cookware specials for Black Friday. I didn’t think much of it but I automatically got connected with Kylee. It was awesome because she totally got what I was looking for and educated me on a better option. Because she was so knowledgeable I felt confident in her recommendations. I am excited to try out my new cookware and know I’ll use Curated again in the future. Thank you, Kylee!!

Answered my questions!
5 /5
I'm super pleased with my experience with Clark and with Curated. I'm a chronic over-researcher who has a hard time making a decision! Clark answered my questions and explained the differences between cookware materials. He also helped explain how to adjust my cooking/cleaning techniques with a new type of cookware. Great experience overall and I'll be back when I'm ready to buy a new skillet. 😊

Surprisingly human experience.

Really enjoyed the whole process. I learned so much from Clark. He was quick with great recommendations each of which I was able to carefully consider. He made me feel that he had my back if I fumble through some of the new stuff I’m about to embark on with a “ real knife and whetstone “. I’m excited!!
