Zwilling J.A. Henckels Four Star II Hollow-Ground Santoku Knife

Professional chefs know that the proper weight and balance of a knife are just as vital as a strong, sharp edge. Crafted in Germany, the Four Star II collection delivers on all counts with a superior hand feel and high-carbon steel blades forged for optimal sharpness. This multipurpose santoku features shallow indentations along the blade's sides that reduce drag for greater precision when you're chopping and slicing. Precision forged using Zwilling's Sigmaforge process, which incorporates the Fridour ice-hardening technique to produce a corrosion-resistant blade that is exceptionally hard yet flexible. Precise lasers are used to ensure each blade's edge is at the ideal cutting angle for maximum sharpness. Blade has a series of hollow-ground ovals on each side that create tiny air pockets, minimizing drag for cleaner, more precise cuts. Stainless-steel end cap provides excellent balance while cutting. Permanently bonded polypropylene handle has just enough texture for a secure, comfortable grip. Bolster transitions seamlessly to handle to accommodate a wide variety of specialized cutting grips. 5" santoku: 5"-long blade. 7" santoku: 7"-long blade. Made in Germany by Zwilling J.A. Henckels, founded in 1731.

My favorite knife
December 11, 2014
I have used the predecessor to this knife for almost 15 years. It is my favorite knife for anything except paring. It is perfect for slicing and chopping and then scooping. I just purchased this new version for a Christmas gift for a family member.
