Description

This 5.5-inch hollow edge santoku is perfect for detailed kitchen tasks. Santoku - Japanese for "three virtues" - excels at three cutting techniques: expertly mince garlic, slice cucumber, and dice onions with this smaller-sized Asian all-rounder. The hollow edge features a blade that has small indentations, known as grantons, that prevent food from sticking while cutting.

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.

  • Made from special formula high carbon stainless steel
  • SIGMAFORGE - Single piece, forged knife
  • Ice-hardened FRIODUR blade stays sharper, longer
  • Precision-honed blade and laser-controlled edge for superior sharpness
  • Ergonomic, polypropylene handle
  • 57 Rockwell Hardness = excellent edge retention
  • Dishwasher safe, handwashing recommended
  • Made in Germany

ZWILLING FOUR STAR CUTLERY SERIES

ZWILLING Four Star 5-inch Hollow Edge Santoku Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic All purpose knife My first Henkels knife was a double Henkels 7’ chef knife I bought about 15 years ago and still going strong. My daughter bought this as a gift when she heard me rave about the santoku knife I had tried at a store demo. It does not disappoint . I have cut soft fruits like mango and harder item like carrots. I was able to get precise cuts and was easy on the wrists. I got a great dice with smaller veggies like ginger and chilies. Love this knife!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I grew up with the Four Star line in my parents kitchen and now that I am on my own I didn't even think of looking for another blade. The handle material is super comfortable and gives me confidence in my grip. The traditional blade design has never changed and is consistently sharp and stays sharp for a long time. Im so glad that some things never change. The German quality and engineering really shine through here. The Santoku shape is great for all of my slicing and chopping needs. The acute angle gives me nice straight cuts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A versatile companion to the 7” version This 5” santoku knife is the perfect companion to the 7” version. My wife and I will cook together, and we often will be chopping foods at the same time. It’s ideal to have a second chopping knife (besides our chef’s knife) so that one person and be chopping the larger vegetables and meats while the other is finely chopping smaller vegetables. The 5” knife is great for green onions, garlic, carrots, cucumbers, etc. It’s lighter and easier to handle than the larger knifes for doing fine chopping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, Comfortable and Sharp German Steel! This is a perfect length for someone who's looking for not so small or not so big on their hand, at the same time you'll have perfect control of the knife. Comfortable and balanced size, will quickly become the go-to knife for everyday tasks. It's the most easiest to sharpen, it has a unique blade shape and ergonomic bolster. Whether chopping, slicing, or dicing, the broad blade are comfortable in the hand. This can is a vegetable knife, large fruit knife, and a meat knife as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light Weight, Top Quality This light weight Santoku is perfect for someone who prefers a smaller blade and lighter knife for chopping but doesn't want to give up quality. It's great to chop small fruits and vegetables or even slice through small pieces of meat. Four Star is a top quality knife forged from high carbon German steel, made in Germany just the same as the Pro knives. The difference is in the handle construction; it has a molded handle instead of three rivets making it lighter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve been super happy with this knife it’s about 12 years old and still cuts everything. You can see there’s no rust and the handle is still in perfect condition. I do hand wash all my knives but they are dishwasher safe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7.09-inch Hollow ground Santoku knife LOVE, LOVE it!!! Wonderful knife to work with. Great balance and really like the Santoku feature! Can't say enough good things! I'm wondering why I didn't get one sooner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and sharp! I bought this to complement our 20+ year old Four Star knife set that we use religiously. I mostly use the chef’s knife that was included with our set, but I found myself wanting something a bit different to accommodate chopping larger vegetables and meats (for when I’m not using a rocking motion). This 7” santoku knife fits the bill perfectly. I chose the hollow ground version to more easily allow thinly sliced onions and fruits to separate from the blade.
