Henckels 5.5″ 4 Star Prep Knife
Henckels 5.5″ 4 Star Prep Knife. These knives are honed and hand-finished by the most skilled artisans. The laser controlled edge is incredibly sharp. The entire length of the blade can be used for cutting and chopping and the edge can be sharpened in full from the bolster to tip.
The knives are made of proprietary special formula German steel that has been perfected for more than 280 years. Combined with Zwilling’s Friodur ice hardening technique, the result is a harder, sharper blade that will not stain or chip and remains sharp longer.
Each knife is precision forged from a single piece of steel using Zwilling’s Sigmaforge process. The result is an exceptionally sturdy, balanced and flexible blade.
This updated blade shape excels at a multitude of tasks; peeling and chopping vegetables and fruit, slicing meats and cheeses, butterflying chicken breasts, deveining shrimp and much more. The well-designed blade allows for plenty of knuckle clearance when you’re chopping on a cutting board yet is small enough for in-hand paring tasks, such as peeling and trimming apples and potatoes.
