FOUR STAR is the top-selling knife of ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS worldwide. Honed and hand-finished by accomplished artisans, this celebrated knife is the model of safety, durability and comfort. The seamless transition from bolster to handle provides remarkable balance and acts as a finger guard. Along with ergonomic molded handle, experience fatigue-free cutting with each use. The knives are made of proprietary special formula steel that has been perfected for over 280 years. Combinded with ZWILLING’s signature ice-hardening technique, these FRIODUR blades are harder, sharper, they will NOT STAIN or chip and they retain their sharpness longer. Precision-forged from a single piece of steel, the SIGMAFORGE knives have an exceptionally sturdy, balanced and flexible blade. Four Star's amazing Prep Knife will become the go-to knife in your kitchen. This new blade shape excels at a multitude of tasks - peeling and chopping vegetables and fruit, slicing meats and cheeses, butterflying chicken breasts, deveining shrimp and much more. The well-designed blade allows for plenty of knuckle clearance when you're chopping on a cutting board yet is small enough for in-hand paring tasks, such as peeling and trimming apples and potatoes.
