Description

This 2-piece Asian starter set features two essential Asian-style knives for everyday cooking. The 2.75-inch peeling knife features a pointed tip that curves downward for peeling fruit and vegetables and removing blemishes, and the 5.5-inch hollow edge santoku is a Japanese-style knife designed for small-scale slicing and dicing.

Four Star knives are made of proprietary special formula steel that has been perfected for almost 300 years. Combined with ZWILLING’s signature ice-hardening technique, these FRIODUR blades are harder, sharper, they will not stain or chip, and they retain their sharpness longer. Precision forged from a single piece of steel, the SIGMAFORGE knives have an exceptionally sturdy, balanced, and flexible blade.

ZWILLING Four Star 2-pc Asian Starter Knife Set is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great Asian starter set I bought this knife set for my friend to start off her knife collection and she loves them! The Four Star knives are nice and lightweight, great for anyone who doesn’t want something that can be tiring in hand. The Santoku is a great knife to use for chopping vegetables, meat, fish and with the indentions on the blade, it helps release food well. The paring knife, styled more like the Kudamono, is great for slicing and peeling fruits and vegetables. With the Four Star having a ice hardened forged steel, these knives will stay sharp much longer, won’t be prone to rusting, and will have lasting durability. A great set to build a knife collection or to have a couple key blades in your kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Four Star II is an extremely well balanced German knife. The molded handle feels secure and smooth in the hand, the full bolster is familiar and the acute angle on the edge will always cut with precision. Made from German steel that has been ice hardened for better edge retention this is a high quality heirloom knife. Add all these attributes into two types of Japanese styled knives and you have the perfect combination.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5.5" Santoku & 3.5" Kudamono Paring 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect combo set! Perfect 2pc. set, light and comfortable Four Star set. This 5.5" Hollow Edge Santoku knife is not just an Asian chef knife, it is excellent in cutting large food, meat, vegetables, poultry, herbs and fruits. Indention on the blade creates barrier between the food and the steel, preventing food from sticking. It is perfect for a cook who rather likes chopping motion than rocking and gliding knife which this knife will do just fine. This Santoku knife is excellent in mincing, dicing, slicing, and chopping. It looks great and a well-made knife. It feels great and comfortable in my hand, and it cuts great! Along with the 3" vegetable paring knife, everyone loved this combo set. This vegetable knife is great for peeling, and cutting small fruits and vegetables, a handy dandy helper prep knife. A fully forged construction blade that provides balance and durability German-made knife. It is dishwasher safe. Ideal gifting idea too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Starter Set This is a great set for someone learning basic chopping skills. It's a little lighter because the handle is molded not riveted. You're not compromising quality! It's forged from high carbon German steel and made in Germany. It's going to stay sharp and last a lifetime. The santoku has the smaller 5" blade that I've found is easier to "learn" on. The parer is a great parer but can handle small tasks like garlic and shallots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great prep set 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.

The description said "Edge angle 15 degrees per side". I thought the Zwilling Asian style knife should have been 10 degrees edge angle. Can you please help clarify for both the ZWILLING Four Star 2-pc Asian Starter Knife Set ?

Asked by: Sam2
Thank you for contacting ZWILLING! Our Western Knives edge angle is 15 degrees per side. Our Asian Knives like our Four Star Santoku edge angle is 10 degrees per side. The 3” Paring Knife in our Four Star 2pc set is a Western Knife, edge angle is 15 degrees on side. Regards, Zwilling
