40 years ago ZWILLING J.A. Henckels revolutionized the factors for best-quality knives with the introduction of the seamless synthetic maintain. The TWIN Four Star II series improves at the original design by adding a stainless-steel end cap to optimize the balance. Every Four Star II knife is forged from a single piece of steel, leading to a strong, balanced, and versatile blade. The seamless transition from bolster to maintain makes Four Star II knives comfy for long periods of use. Made in Germany.
