Where to begin? Jamotec is the undisputed leader in ham holders. If a cadre of German engineers studied the ham holding problem for a decade, the J4P would be the result. This ham holder features numerous patented innovations that make ham 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 ham. As you cut the ham, you need to rotate it reach different areas. With a normal ham holder this entails unscrewing the pins that hold the ham in place, moving the ham, and screwing the pins back into place. The problem is that most ham holders will only accommodate a few positions - depending on the shape of the leg, the pins may not engage properly and the ham will move around, making it difficult to cut. To rotate a ham held by a J4P one simply unlocks the cuff, rotates is to the desired position, and locks it again. Any ham, 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 ham, surrounded by a channel to catch any grease that may drip from the ham. The unit is made entirely of solid stainless steel and hard beechwood. At 7kg, it won't move around while you're cutting the ham. 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 ham 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.
