These two prep knives help you with everything from small paring jobs to larger slicing and chopping tasks. Designed in collaboration with renowned professional chefs, Zwilling Four Star cutlery has been a best-selling series since it debuted in 1976.

- Precision-forged using Zwilling's Sigmaforge process, which incorporates the Friodur ice-hardening technique to produce corrosion-resistant blades that are exceptionally hard yet flexible.
- Each high-carbon stainless-steel blade is hand sharpened and polished by master craftsmen to create a long-lasting, razor-sharp edge.
- Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the ideal cutting angle for maximum sharpness.
