This classic tool of the well-stocked kitchen makes short work of tough jobs like splitting poultry, de-jointing meat or hacking through ribs. The 6-inch cleaver comes in especially handy for cutting up whole chickens or large cuts of meat to freeze parts for later use. The durable 6-inch blade is impressively heavy, well-balanced, and long enough for most home tasks. It features a comfortable ergonomic handle as well as a blade eye for hanging. Like the rest of the Grand Prix2 line, this cleaver is safe in the dishwasher, but hand wash for best results.
Grand Prix2 knives offer a compelling blend of precision, comfort, and legendary Wüsthof quality. Like the Grand Prix line, Grand Prix2 boasts a high-performance handle and a sleek contemporary look, with the addition of a more rolling, rounded profile that fits beautifully into the pocket of the palm. Molded ergonomically designed handles are pebble-textured for slip resistance even when wet, then permanently bonded to the entire tang for a superbly balanced feel. Blade, bolster, and tang are precision-forged from a single piece of high-carbon stainless steel for the ultimate in strength and durability. A computer-controlled process grinds and polishes the blade so its perfectly tapered from back to edge and tip to handle. The edge is then twice honed by hand and finally laser-tested for long-lasting sharpness. Grand Prix2 cutlery is made in Germany and carries a lifetime warranty against defects. --Mary Park
