The 5.5 inch Prep Knife has joined the Four Star Collection. The Prep Knife has become an indispensable part of many of the collection from ZWILLING. This new blade shape is fast becoming a go-to knife for a variety of prep tasks. It excels at slicing meats and cheese, chopping vegetables and fruit, butterflying chicken breasts, and more. It can easily be used for chopping on a board, but is small enough to handle some in-hand tasks like peeling and trimming apples or potatoes.
