J.A. Henckels Four Star 5" Hollow Edge Santoku is the perfect size asian style knife. The hollow edge allows for paper-thin slices and keeps food from sticking to the blade.
The Four Star santoku pairs a sharp, Friodur ice-hardened blade with a seamless, ergonomic black polypropylene handle. Scallops along the edge of the high-carbon, no-stain steel blade reduce friction during slicing by creating air pockets and thus result in paper-thin slices. The blade maintains a sharp edge for ages and sharpens with ease. While the blades of Four Star knives are the same as those of the Five Star series, the former feature a straighter handle with a distinct heel.
Nicely balanced and relatively lightweight, this particular five-inch santoku from upmarket Zwilling J.A. Henckels makes a superb gift for any home chef who enjoys Asian cooking. Made in Germany, the knife, though dishwasher-safe, is best washed by hand and is covered by Henckels' lifetime warranty. --Ann Bieri
From the Manufacturer
|First introduced in 1976, the Four Star® Series is one of the world's most popular knife lines. Four Star® knives were designed and developed in close cooperation with renowned professional chefs. The result was a fully forged knife with a unique molded handle. The Four Star® line contains knives for all tasks, and includes the following open stock knife types: parer, bread, peeling, sandwich, utility, carving, chefs, granton edge slicer, santoku, and others. Four Star® knives are also available in a range of block sets and gift sets.|
A Higher Standard in Knife Construction
Four Star® knives are precision forged from a single piece of exclusive-formula, high-carbon, no-stain steel under the all-new Sigmaforge standard. As a result, Four Star® knives have improved quality consistency, lasting sharpness, and perfect geometry. Sigmaforge one-piece construction also provides high precision and improved stability of the blade and steel structure, thus improving cutting-edge retention for lasting sharpness. In addition, Four Star® knives use J.A. Henckels Friodur ice hardening for corrosion resistance, a process that also contributes to cutting-edge retention.
It's All in The Grip:
|The Four Star® series features high impact polypropylene handles that are permanently bonded to the knife blades without any gaps. These comfortable handles are break-proof, sanitary, and colorfast. In addition, the super bolster provides weight, insures safety, and adds balance.|
