This is probably one of the most versatile of vices. It appears that Zyliss keeps getting bought out and moved from company to company. This is the third name change for the Zyliss products. They also make useful and well made kitchen implements. I especially like their cutter for french fried potatoes. Their garlic press is also excellent as is their salad spinner. Elegant and simple products that meet a need perfectly.
This vice comes in several versions:
The original Zyliss vice came with the clamps, soft jaws and the rounding centres. Updated versions have more options.
As at April, 2011, Advanced Machinery
was still showing the Z-vice2 system which is one of the new names for the Zyliss. They're still using some of the original Zyliss molds. The vice is known as the Zyliss, z-Vice, z-Vice2, Profi-King and perhaps more.
