Where to begin? Jamotec is the undisputed leader in jamon holders. If a cadre of German engineers studied the jamon holding problem for a decade, the J4P would be the result. This jamon holder features numerous patented innovations that make jamon cutting a pleasure. The size-adjustable cuff (the part that holds the foreleg) rotates and locks on two axes, allowing for absolute positioning of the jamon. As you cut the jamon, you need to rotate it reach different areas. With a normal jamon holder this entails unscrewing the pins that hold the jamon in place, moving the jamon, and screwing the pins back into place. The problem is that most jamon holders will only accommodate a few positions - depending on the shape of the leg, the pins may not engage properly and the jamon will move around, making it difficult to cut. To rotate a jamon held by a J4P one simply unlocks the cuff, rotates is to the desired position, and locks it again. Any jamon, no matter what shape, is held firmly at the exact angle you choose. Aside from the J2, which is similar but doesn't fold, there is really nothing else like this on the market.

The J4P also features an easily-cleaned stainless steel surface to hold the base of the jamon, surrounded by a channel to catch any grease that may drip from the jamon. The unit is made entirely of solid stainless steel and hard beechwood. At 16 lbs, it won't move around while you're cutting the jamon. It even adapts to uneven surfaces with height-adjustable rubber feet.

The J4P's cuff folds down and locks when not in use. It is easily transported in the included satchel. In Spain, this is what the master jamoneros carry when they need to cut jamon on site. Are you imagining yourself showing up at a party with a J4P in its case and an ibérico ham? Are you wearing only black? Do you say nothing while you set up your Jamotec, lay out your knives? We thought so.
