ZHEN for your kitchen

Zhen is a Chinese word that means ‘to achieve utmost perfection’. Preparing meals with a blunt knife or the wrong type of knife can be a frustrating experience. Instead you can slice, dice and mince to perfection using the Zhen Paring Knife. The small size is suited for small precision tasks like peeling, trimming, and coring/hulling.
