Made from 3/16” high-carbon stainless stock and flat ground to a paper-thin cutting edge. The Wusthof Forged Chinese Cleaver has plenty of weight for crushing, yet is beautifully balanced for tireless cutting. Strong and hefty for powering through tough butternut and acorn squash. The razor-thin edge gives you complete control over precision work. Ideal for chopping and slicing, plus the wide blade makes for a seamless transfer from cutting board to pan.
