Summary

Designed in collaboration with renowned professional chefs, Zwilling Four Star cutlery has been a bestselling series since it debuted in 1976. This santoku knife is a special release in honor of Four Star's 40th anniversary. Built with a broad blade and extra-sharp cutting edge, the Asian-style chef's knife is a go-to favorite for chopping and slicing of meat, fish and produce.

  • 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.
Dimensions & More Info
  • 6"-long blade, 4 3/4"-long handle.
  • 8 oz.
  • Made in Germany.

More Information

  • Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the ideal cutting angle for maximum sharpness.
  • Bolster transitions seamlessly to handle to accommodate a wide variety of specialized cutting grips.
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 4 out of 5 by from Great knife for the price Zwiling makes great quality knives so I don't have to preach here :-) Great German mechanic (Japanese knives are too sharp for me). I liked the minimal handle with no "buttons". The butt of the handle is very ergonomic too as it provides enough counter balance to the knife without the metal extension like other more expensive knives have. I'm giving it 4 stars only because the 6" is actually too small my hand - and I'm a 5'-3" petite size 0 with skinny fingers! There's not enough knuckle room for any knives < 7" FYI, so buy a knife that's min. 8", though I still use it daily to chop small fruit and vegetables. Great value, but if I could I would have bought the next size up as a minimum. Have used it for 2+ years and would recommend this Four Star series to entry level chefs who want a long lasting, quality product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go to knife Inexpensive knife but well built. It is a lighter metal and handle but you can't go wrong with the price. I seem to grab it more than what I thought I would. Nice addition to my collection.
