Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed to chop vegetables and not bones, this extra-wide, eight-inch cleaver from Wüsthof's moderately priced Gourmet line performs with perfection. Made in Solingen, Germany, home of Wüsthof since 1814, Gourmet blades are precision-cut by laser from sheets of high-carbon, stain-resistant steel, resulting in a slightly thinner profile and lighter weight than the company's revered forged steel blades. There is no bolster, but there is a full-tang. As with the more expensive Wüsthof Classic knives, Gourmet handles are made of a triple-riveted, black composite shaped to fit the hand comfortably.

Gourmet series knives make excellent, affordable gifts for any home cooking enthusiast. The eight-inch cleaver is covered by a lifetime warranty and is dishwasher-safe, though Wüsthof recommends washing and drying its cutlery by hand. --Ann Bieri

This is our favorite knife. If you have a cleaver and a paring knife, you don't really need anything else. We bought one for each of our kids when they moved out of our house. It is wonderful for chopping and slicing and the size of the blade makes it easy to transfer minced vegetables from the cutting board to the pan. Our Wusthof knives have lasted for years and I expect the cleavers will still be used daily 25 years from now.

If you want a Chinese vegetable cleaver, then this is the one. Made from 3/16" high carbon stainless stock, and flat ground to a paper thin cutting edge. I have not found a better one than this. Plenty of weight for crushing, and yet, beautifully balanced for tireless cutting, pinch grip a must. The razor thin edge gives complete control for all precision work. Check out some Martin Yan videos for cutting demonstrations using this knife. I give this an eleven out of ten.

As an Executive Chef, I use my knifes daily. I have a complete set of Wusthof knifes and this Chinese Cleaver was a welcome addition. Actually it has become my new kitchen work horse. I would say however this knife is not for people with beginner knife skills. For beginners i would recommend starting with a 7 or 8 inch Wusthof santoku knife.

Not much to say about it, it is made to do its job. Solid handle with 3 rivets.
Sharp out of the box, and doesn't require re-sharpening with use of a steel. Unless you go and chip it...

Just a few notes to clear up confusion about the Chinese "vegetable" cleaver.
It's not a meat cleaver, don't chop bones with it.
Chinese chefs use it for almost everything, not just vegetables; it's the equivalent of a French chef knife.
About 2/3 to 1/2 the weight of a meat cleaver of the same size. It will fit into the cleaver slot of your knife block, ~3 inches wide.

I find this is a good mid range price since you don't want cheap 10-20$ cleaver that might fly out of your hand; and unless you are a professional chef, $100+ for 1 knife is just ridiculous (unless you plan to use it for the rest of your life).

I was sent a cleaver that is different to the one in the image. I returned it, and a replacement was sent. This one was also incorrect. Amazon are aware of this problem and have not changed the image. Admittedly, they did replace the item and pay for all postage, but why they have not fixed this problem is a mystery. I guess other people aren't bothered by the discrepancy. Just be aware that if you buy it you will get a cleaver that is different to the one pictured.

We call this the "clever-cleaver" at my house. I trust Wusthof products, in general, and this cleaver was an excellent buy. Good price, excellent product.

As noted by another reviewer, the photograph for this item is incorrect (you won't get the one with a straight handle), the model number listed however is correct.

Excellent! Heavier than the Martin Yan that we had for years. This is sharp, balanced and an exceptional piece of kitchen equipment.
