A great multitasking tool to mince large amounts of garlic for a marinade or slice thin cuts of chicken breast to saute for a fajita, this Chinese cleaver is essential for several cooking tasks. The wide, razor-sharp blade delivers thin, delicate cuts while the spine is used to tenderize meats and bring out the finest flavor. The knife can be turned on its side to crush garlic and ginger and to release essential oils for a bold, tasty seasoning and the wide blade is ideal for scooping ingredients off the board and transferring to the pot or pan with ease. This professional-grade cleaver is meticulously crafted for the ultimate weight balance to reduce hand fatigue and provide greater control. The round grooved wooden handle is not only stylish and offers authenticity to the Chinese cleaver; it also offers grip and comfort during food prep.
