Summary

Designed in collaboration with renowned professional chefs, Zwilling Four Star cutlery has been a bestselling series since it debuted in 1976. This 8-piece set is a special release in honor of Four Star's 40th anniversary. Stocked with the most essential cutlery for cooking and entertaining, it also includes a birch storage block.

  • 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.

8-piece set includes:

  • 4" paring knife
  • 5" serrated utility knife
  • 5 1/2" prep knife knife
  • 8" bread knife

Use & Care

Use

  • Always use caution when handling sharp objects.
  • Avoid cutting on hard surfaces such as stone, metal or glass.
  • It is not advisable to use any knife but a meat cleaver to cut through bone, as other blades can be easily damaged.

Care

  • Hand-wash with warm water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
  • Maintain the knife's cutting edge by regularly using a honing steel.
  • Sharpen as needed. With regular use and honing, you should not need to sharpen your knife more than once or twice a year.
  • Sharpen knife at home using a whetstone or knife sharpener, or have it sharpened by a professional.
  • Store knife in a safe place to protect its edge and prevent injury.

  • Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not sure what is up with this knife set. My husband bought this as a gift for me. The shipping box was in fine shape. The actual Zwilling knife set and block box was dented and obviously pre-opened. The carboard box inside the Zwilling box that the knives came in had holes in it. The enitre contents smelled strongly of mildew. I’m pretty disappointed. I think this set is a return and has been stored in a damp area. I know the product is different than the packaging, but I find myself question the quality of this product and if it is new or a return.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Going Strong 10years This knife set was a wedding gift 10 years ago & are still going strong. My husband has had them professionally sharpened twice - & they have maintained their beauty & superior edge. We haven't done anything special in terms of caring for them. I'll be honest, I occasionally run them through the dishwasher & it has not hurt them. Overall, I'd definitely recommend these knives.
