Versatile and comfortable
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This knife is one of the best prep knives I have ever used. The handle design fits comfortably in my hand and the blade perfectly cuts through any vegetables.

Best prep knife EVER!

Great quality
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Beautiful knife with a full tang. The handle has a nice heft to it. Cuts cleanly. Huge upgrade from the knives that I have been using which were pretty and colorful until the paint started chipping off the blades! Will never gave to worry about that with this knife.
by NYlte
Love this knife!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] It's the perfect size for most anything! The edge is nice and sharp - I have to be careful not to cut myself!
by SandyInHalfmoon
Great knife, great customer service.
Perfect for small prepping! It is easy to use and I prefer using it over the large one. I love this brand and we will be loyal customers years to come
by Jooliana
great prep knife
This is such a useful knife at a great price. The forged German steel and Spanish construction make a strong blade that is very sharp. It stays sharp for a long time and is easy to maintain. The size of the blade is perfect for all smaller prep of vegetables and herbs. I like how the handle is offset allowing me to work with it easily in hand or on a cutting board. It really fits the space in my collection between my paring knife and chefs knife well.

The Classic knife line is a value option from the Zwilling family of cutlery. Made in Spain, with European steel, the Prep knife shape is versatile and effective.
by Alamedagirl
This knife is awesome because it is a great value and made in Spain! The fully forged construction gives you some extra durability too. This 5.5 inch prep is wonderful for all prep needs- peeling, slicing, dicing, etc. It really makes life easier.
by bkrayci0
Classic knives are very popular because you get all the great features of the more expensive German made knives but these are manufactured in Spain so they have more of a value price. The forged bolster makes these strong, sturdy and well balanced. Made from high quality stainless steel these knives will resist corrosion and retain a nice sharp edge. I use my 5.5 inch prep knife all the time. I like that it is smaller than a chef's knive but larger than a utility/prep knife so it can tackle all my cutting, chopping and mincing tasks that don't need the extended reach of a longer blade.
