    great prep set
    Aug 11, 2020

    I love this set. The smaller knife is great for peeling and shaping. The larger one is great for vegetable prep. The slim profile of the blade make accurate thin slices with little waste. The forged German steel blades are very strong and sharp. The handles are very comfortable to hold and the texture gives me a confident grip.

    5.5" Santoku & 3.5" Kudamono Paring
    May 18, 2020

    Great combo for cutting and sculpting vegetables for Asian style food prep. These two blades will make any presentation beautiful; they make peeling, paring and slicing so effortless. There’s a reason the Four Star line has been a part of Zwilling’s lineup forever. It was designed with professionals in mind, so the focus was on safety, comfort and durability. The ‘grippy’ polypropylene handle is proportionate to the blade and the work - therefore no excess weight. The blade steel and method of construction is proprietary and at the forefront of technology. The blade can both take a beating and hold an edge, ideal for daily use and hard work. Although dishwasher safe, all knives perform and look better if they are hand washed. I’ve had a Four Star in my collection for decades. And it still comes out for certain jobs. I expect it will be there for a while longer.

    I love love my Four Stars. Even though the knife is forged this line provides a light weight feel. The fully molded handle is great, you don’t have to worry about rivets coming out over time.

    Four Star knives are popular for many reasons. One of those is the unique molded handle because it is so comfortable and provides a nonslip grip. These knives are forged so they have a sturdy feel and are weighted nicely because they are not as heavy as some forged knives. The Asian starter set is a great way to get two handle blade profiles. The Santoku is excellent for chopping large vegetables and large quantities of vegetables while the smaller paring knife is good for fruits and smaller vegetables. Both are made from steel that will not corrode and retain their super sharp edge use after use.

    A great duet from Four Star which includes 2 much used knives - a paring/peeler and a Santoku. Small and larger tasks are covered by these 2 knives. The quality is superb, with the ice-hardened Friodur process, so they are super-sharp and durable, along with being rust and chip free. Knives that last a lifetime and can be handed down.
