New Classic 7-inch Chinese Cleaver:
Wusthof, known for precision-forged knives crafted in Germany, adds three new knives to their lineup. Designed to slice through all types of vegetables with speed and precision, the new Classic 7-inch Chinese Cleaver is made from one solid piece of steel and can also be used to thinly slice fruits, as well as chicken, pork and beef for fast cooking dishes, like stir-fries.
The Classic 7-inch Chinese Cleaver has an extra wide, rectangular-shaped blade with a thin, razor-sharp edge to make fast work of slicing through large and medium size vegetables, as well as smash aromatics, like garlic and ginger, and easily scoop prepped ingredients from the cutting board to the pan.
