Additional Information

FOUR STAR is the top-selling knife series of ZWILLING J.A. Henckels worldwide. Honed and hand-finished by the most skilled artisans, this celebrated collection is the model of safety, ergonomics, and comfort. Thanks to their seamless transition from bolster to handle, the knives are comfortable to use for long periods of time. The bolster provides the right balance while acting as a safe finger guard.

The knives are made of proprietary special formula steel that has been perfected for over 280 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic knives We first bought the 4" paring knives in the late 1970's. Due to losses over the years, we recently found it necessary to purchase some replacements. What a delight when we opened the parcel. The knives look exactly like the ones we bought 40 years ago. Best of all, the quality of the product is still outstanding. The knives cut so easily and are very comfortable in the hand. In a world where quality and service seem to be a thing of the past we thank you so very much for maintaining your high standards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best knife in drawer! This knife is the most used in my kitchen! It stays super sharp and I use it to slice and dice all salad veggies, make sandwiches, open plastic wraps and containers, probably everything your not supposed to do with a fine knife like this - but it's utility is phenomenal! Should have bought two - but I am trying to upgrade my whole drawer of knives to Zwilling/Henckels! Love them all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 3" Broken Knofe Got a set of 4-star was a wedding gift almost 30 years ago. Since then I have gone thru 3 of these knives. Tips broke off. Local store replaced one but went out of business. Though the knives in general are great, these are prone to break. I get them professionally sharpen every other year and would recommend any of the knife as they last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paring knives I bought two small knives s month ago and they are perfect. They arrived early, were well packaged and ready to use. I love these over the others because of the handle. I love the little blip at the end. Makes all the difference.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Serrated Prep Knife This particular knife has a single side grind (one side is flat; no edge grind). I notice that this causes the direction of the cut to deviate. I remember seeing this method of edge grinding start maybe 15 years ago on many brands and did not like it. I am assuming it reduces cost of production since it eliminates work on one side of the blade. I am used to traditional knife edges with a two sided grind and IMO two sided grind is superior.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Paring Knife I purchased this a few days ago and I love it. It's an all-around fantastic paring knife. It's weighty but not too heavy and it fits comfortably in my hand. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again or recommend it to a friend.

We bought our original Four Star knives in 1987.  We just replaced the 4" paring knife and see that the blade is slightly shorter (3 7/8"), slightly thinner, and the bevel at the base of the blade is steeper.  Did you alter the design or not as you say?

Asked by: Doug1987
This item has not changed since 1976. Perhaps, one or the other of your paring knives was a Four Star II design, which is designed to be lighter and more flexible.

I bought a set of Henckels knives 16 years ago and all except the 3" paring knife perform perfectly and sharpen very nicely. Over the last 7 or 8 years, the paring knife has not held an edge and is impossible to sharpen. Is there a warranty on this?

Asked by: Lucien
Absolutely! Our knives are warrantied for life. Please call our Warranty Department at (800) 777-4308 or use the "Contact Us" link below.
