This large and heavy blade is used to split bones.
A cleaver relives the demanding task of getting through bones, so that your chef's knife will last far longer - and not break! Designed to be pummeled and to pummel - every kitchen needs one. Blade width is 4 mm and the forged and stamped knives come with ergonomic handles.
All knife measurements are for the blade only, not the handle.
Each Wusthof knife is drop forged from a single piece of chromium-molybdenum-vanadium steel for maximum strength, balance and heft. This specialised high-carbon, stain resistant alloy ensures that the cutting edge of the knife is razor sharp and also easy to resharpen. A computer controlled grinding and polishing of the blade also ensures there is perfect tapering from bolster to tip.
The full tang knife is beautifully sandwiched by a synthetic, ergonomic handle that's been triple riveted for durability yet still retains its stylish looks and smoothness. The perfectly weighted full bolster gives the knife its heft and protects your fingers too.
If you value your tools we recommend that, after each use, you wash your knives with warm water and a little detergent, rinse carefully and dry with a towel. Corrosive food particles will not affect your blade if washed off directly after use.
