Designed in collaboration with renowned professional chefs, Zwilling Four Star cutlery has been a bestselling series since it debuted in 1976. This chef's knife is a special release in honor of Four Star's 40th anniversary. A broad, strong 7" blade and fine cutting edge makes this a superb all-around knife for chopping herbs, trimming and cutting vegetables and slicing fish and meats.
- Precision forged using Zwilling's Sigmaforge process, which incorporates the Friodur ice-hardening technique to produce a corrosion-resistant blade that is exceptionally hard yet flexible.
- High-carbon stainless-steel blade is hand sharpened and polished by master craftsmen to create a long-lasting, razor-sharp edge.
- Ergonomically contoured polypropylene handle has just enough texture to guarantee a secure, comfortable grip.
- Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dennis from Great knife Received this knife as a wedding present, and almost three years later, it is still my favorite present (wasn't even on our registry)! Have never had to stone it, only the honing stick a couple times a week. I have since added a few other knives at about the same price point, and this one remains the clear cut favorite. If you are on the fence, buy this knife!!! Disclaimer: I baby all of my good knives: hand wash, never scrap sideways with the blade, and have good cutting boards (end grain), so I cannot speak to the durability of the knife, but when taken care of, it will hold its edge forever.Date published: 2019-06-20Rated 5 out of 5 by nubsferfingers from Great knife. All of the four stars are great knives, and I have most of them.Date published: 2019-01-08Rated 5 out of 5 by cookman2k from Excellent knife!!! I bought one for my son for Christmas and had to have one myself. It's the perfect size to use as an every day tool in the kitchen,the price was great and delivery prompt.Date published: 2018-03-29Rated 5 out of 5 by sick mick from As perfect as the 8" but a pinch smaller This has become my "other" favorite knife since purchasing a year ago. My favorite is the 8" version. The price was so fair that I had to have it. The 7" blade opens up versatile uses such as paring with the heel of the blade near the bolster and mincing shallots and garlic with the tip since the shorter blade is easy to control. if you don't have a lot of room to prep food but still want a full and solid chef knife, this is perfect. The handle is very comfortable to hold on to for hours on end. I hope that this 40 year Anniversary knife with its amazing price will encourage cooks to try out a great product.Date published: 2018-03-05Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruce Hawke from Very Good Knife This knife has a great handle and is well-balanced.
