Inside the Henckels Knife Factory

knives-henckels-200.jpgPopular Science takes a tour of the Zwilling J.A. Henckels factory in Solingen, Germany, where the process of turning a piece of their "secret blend of stainless Special Steel" into a proper knife takes three weeks of "cooling, supercooling, and heat-tempering steps."
