Lighter than a standard chef’s knife, the Wusthof 7” Chai Dao is perfect for projects with intensive prep work. Its unique blade shape combines the utility of a cleaver, santoku knife and chef’s knife, well-suited for a wide range of kitchen tasks. A slightly curved blade allows a pleasant rocking motion ideal for mincing and dicing. Extra-wide blade makes smashing garlic a cinch. Plus, the blade is wide enough to transfer food from cutting board to bowl.
