Chinese cleavers are not like their western counterparts, they re much more at home slicing and dicing like a chef s knife, than being swung into a side of ribeye. The reason for this is that chinese cleavers are crafted with much thinner blades than that of a classic western cleaver. Wusthof brings their two centuries of German knife-forging experience to bear in constructing the Wusthof Gourmet 8 Chinese Cleaver and have succeeded in melding two distinct knife styles to make a durable, versatile piece of cutlery. Wusthof calls the proprietary laser aided forging technology they use PETec (Precision Edge Technology). PETec grants this knife excellent chopping, mincing, and slicing ability from the moment it arrives in your kitchen and for many years after. A triple-riveted synthetic polymer handle encompasses the entirety of the tang to make sure your Wusthof Gourmet Chinese Cleaver stays in your control.
This Wusthof Gourmet Chinese Cleaver along with all other Wusthof cutting utensils is made in Solingen, Germany and protected by a lifetime warranty.
