Rated 5 out of 5 by from An awesome Prep A great blade that acts as a Chef knife, but is not as daunting in size. This Kanren Prep knife does a nice job of chopping, slicing fruits, veggies and meats. This is a great blade if you don’t need a big knife, but still want to get the job done of prepping your food on a cutting board. This beautiful 48 layers of the FC61 steel in the Damascus pattern looks gorgeous with the Micarta handle and a great addition to any kitchen. The curved bolster is fantastic too, really provides a great placement to grip your knife with safety and security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A newer blade shape, the prep knife is a great alternative to the traditional chef or utility knife. Its smaller blade length and wide blade appeals to many who feel an 8" blade is too much. It is ideal for chopping smaller fruits and vegetables, and also works nicely slicing meats and cheese. This is knife is not only beautiful with its Damascus blade, but it's razor sharp, true to Japanese knives. Unlike most Japanese knives, it's made of very durable, chip resistant steel that protects the thin, sharp edge. I love the western style handle that's comfortable and is made of Micarta that has the look and feel of wood, but is as durable as a synthetic material. The curved bolster, an innovative feature of the Zwilling Pro knives, makes it incredibly comfortable in every hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Kanren line is one of my favorite and the prep knife is one of my most used knives in the kitchen. It is super sharp due to the FC61 steel and the special ice-hardening process, so can slice, dice, and chop with percision and the black linen micarta handle feels comfortable in my hand while using, which is very important.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is hands down my favorite blade in the kitchen. I use it for all my small chopping, mincing, dicing and slicing needs. Enough knuckle clearance to use the full blade on the cutting board but not over whelming in size for smaller foods. These knives are an exceptional example of German engineering melding with Japanese craftsmanship. Each knife is made from FC 61 steel which is used in razor blades, which speaks to its cutting edge retention, chip resistance and strength. A total of 48 layers of beautiful Damascus steel surround the core. Hand sharpened and honed, each one of these knives are hand crafted by 46 Japanese artists in Seki Japan. The curved bolster enables the whole length of the blade to be used for cutting and chopping and also creates a comfortable grip to ease wrist fatigue. The linen Micarta handle has a gorgeous wood look that feels firm and safe to grip. The impeccable balance, weight, stunning appearance and acute edge makes Kanren a must have knife.
