Description: Chinese cleavers may look similar to Western meat cleavers but they share more similarities with chef’s knives. Their blades are wide and rectangular like cleavers, but much thinner -- making them better suited for chopping, slicing and mincing. Chinese vegetable cleavers are ideal for vegetables, boneless meats, and noodles. The thin edge geometry makes it a precision tool, rather than a replacement for a Western meat cleaver. The tall height gives plenty of finger clearance over a cutting board and is great for moving food from cutting board to the pot.
Designed for the rigors of restaurant and commercial kitchens, the Victorinox (R.H. Forschner) Chinese cleaver features a high performance, high carbon, stainless steel blade that is hand finished at Victorinox in Switzerland by skilled craftsmen. The steel, along with the expert manufacturing processes, ensures a superior cutting edge that is easy to maintain.
Victorinox knives have earned many distinctions. The Victorinox 8 inch Chef's Knife won the distinction of Best Value in the April, 2007 Cook's Illustrated test. Testers for this popular consumer magazine summarized their review by saying, "This is exactly what a knife is supposed to be." The August, 2009 Cook's Illustrated acclaims, "While it's easy to blow your budget on a fancy chef's knife, the inexpensive, lightweight Victorinox Fibrox remains the test kitchen favorite." America’s Test Kitchen loved it and gave it top marks in every category (handle, blade, slicing, chopping, mincing and butchering). It was also the only “Highly Recommended” knife in their “Inexpensive Chef’s Knives” category, where it won out over eight other knives, including offerings from premium brands like Wusthof and Henckels. It was "Highly Recommended" in the “Hybrid Chef’s Knife” category. Michael Chu from Cooking for Engineers also liked it, naming it “Best Value” in a extensive and comparative test between 11 different knives from some of the best German and Japanese brands around.
This commercial-quality Victorinox Swiss Army knife is a mainstay in any kitchen. Preferred by culinary professionals worldwide, the Victorinox knives are great for the economically-minded.
