ZWILLING Four Star 8-inch Carving Knife is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Four Star Carving knife is great for slicing all types of beef, pork and poultry. Made in Germany, the bolster is comfortable, adds weight balance, and safety. The molded handle protects the 3/4 tang which is extremely durable, but lighter than the full tang, which I prefer when using the back and forth carving motion. The blade stays sharp and is stain resistant. Can also be put in the dishwasher, which I'm against, but some other household members don't find it to be a problem. Easy to maintain with regular honing, and occasional sharpening. No longer dread Thanksgiving and other Holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp and beautifull Bought one knife instead of a set because I like using this specific size for everything and rarely use other knifes. Very sharp and nice looking. It is rather light. I think it is because the handle is molded and not riveted. It feels better when holding in my hand than my old knife. The balance is more on the blade, not on the handle. The blade is thin and sturdy, but flexible enough for any task. Got it on sale and feel I got a very good value for the money. I expect to enjoy this knife for a very long time and plan on buying other sizes in the future. I like it a lot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To carve a turkey or roast into perfect thin slices you need a blade that is very sharp, long and thin; Four Star has all that! Four Star is made in Germany, forged from high carbon German steel and is guaranteed to last a lifetime just like the Pro knife. Its fine edge is razor sharp (15 degree edge angle, most are 20) and will have amazing edge retention. The molded handle is the perfect for a carving knife. Its light weight ensures your hand won't get too tired after carving your Thanksgiving turkey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great thin slices I really like this slicer. I have been a fan and user of the Zwilling Four Star line for years. I recently added this slicer to my collection. It has all the traditional hallmarks of the Four Star line. The German construction and forged German steel produce a strong blade that holds an edge for a long time and is easy to maintain. The full bolster and comfortable wrapped handle give me confidence in my grip when I am slicing. The thin profile of the blade produces nice thin straight slices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievably great knife! A knife will cut and slice through a large roast, turkey or just about anything even vegetables. The fork is a must have to assist this carving knife slicing through a big roast or brisket. This carving knife is not just for cutting meat, perfect for cantaloupe, honeydew, papaya and many more. Bolster supports cooks grips, with thumb and index finger on the blade, for safe cutting and less fatigue. A quality and high performance carving knife to durability is worth every dollar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fine Cutlery As with all my other Henckles that I have used for 30 years- nice balance, perfect handles and easy to keep razor sharp! What more can you ask of a knife?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thin or thick, sliced meats come out beautifully Cutting roasts and poultry to proper thickness isn't always easy, as anyone who's carved a turkey can attest. It takes a sharp, long, narrow blade held by a steady hand. You supply the hand, and this knife will do the rest. The quality of the steel of this knife ensures that will stay sharp for a long, long time. And when it needs to be tuned up for the next big dinner, it regains its sharpness easily. The long narrow blade makes it possible to cleanly slice with one stroke vs a sawing motion. This is a knife you will be happy to use every holiday or family gathering. It comes in a set with a carving fork, worth consideration, or the fork can be purchased at a later time. 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 looks almost new.

This slicing knife is a great addition to your knife collection. Makes cutting sausage, turkey, chickens and roasts a breeze.

Can this knife fit in the slot for the sharping rod on the wood block?

Asked by: TVinMotion
The carving knife will not fit in the sharpening steel slot, as the sharpening steel has a uniform, narrow width smaller than the width of the carving knife, which is not uniform across the length of the knife.
