CSN Stores and Zwilling JA Henckels International Forged Premio 7" Santoku Hollow Edge Knife

So, remember I moved into my new apartment back in August...and I brought some of my kitchen knives with me. However, when I started unpacking, I realized I was missing my larger kitchen knife. I thought, oh well, I'll just use the little one for now. It works...but its a big pain in the bum bum if you know what I mean. Take a look...my knife that I've been using all long for all purpose food preparation: veggies, fish, and meats! That would be the dinky little knife on the right in this picture...so I was very happy to be able to review a Zwilling JA Henckels Santoku Hollow Edge Knife with a blade that was a good 7" long. Imagine my excitement, a real  kitchen sized knife actually designed for all purpose food preparation!



I couldn't wait to try it out. This was actually the first time that it took awhile for CSN Stores to ship me my product. Usually, I receive everything within a week but I did have to wait awhile...several weeks before it finally came. Didn't dampen my happiness at all though when I received it. Its made of high quality stainless steel and is dishwasher safe.  It fits comfortably into my hand. I put it to good use today! I was very excited at how smoothly my veggies were being cut whether it be romaine lettuce or onions. You know how when you get down to the last tiny chunk of onion to be cut, it always slips and slides on you, and you're paranoid that you might cut yourself!? Well, that always happens to me and to my utter amazement, it didn't happen today. My onion stayed still while I put in that last slice. Before I knew it, I had everything sliced and diced within 5 minutes. 


I also tried it on my salmon, whether it be sashimi or baked. Decided on sashimi today. Used the knife to help me start to skin it and then sliced it up nicely. It cut smoothly and I didn't need to make any repeat strokes. Nothing got mushed up and I think it did great overall!
Before:   After: 


Bottomline: 
CSN Stores: Still loving it!
Zwilling JA Henckels Santoku Hollow Edge KnifeIt was a much needed tool in my kitchen and I am so glad to have been able to test it out! Very neat, functional and I love the sharp edges! Better yet, its even gotten free shipping now for those of you who are interested. It didn't have free shipping when I was getting it so if you need a versatile kitchen knife, get it now.
