Giveaway: Wüsthof Classic 7 Inch Chinese Cleaver

Wusthof Classic 7" Chinese Cleaver

I firmly believe that it’s important to have the right knife for the job. Sure, you can get most of your kitchen work done with a sturdy chef’s knife, a good serrated bread slicer, and sharp little paring knife, but when you get into deeper chopping and mincing, it’s sometimes nice to have some serious slicing power at hand.

That’s where the Wüsthof Classic 7 Inch Chinese Cleaver comes it. It’s flies through piles of vegetables (good for all that holiday cooking), holds a wickedly sharp edge, and has a wide flat blade that is fabulous for smashing garlic. I also like to use the blunt edge for bruising herbs, lemongrass, and other general tenderizing tasks.

It’s a knife that takes a little getting used to if you’re more accustomed to working with a smaller blade, but once you get comfortable with it, you’ll find yourself reaching for it all the time.
