Wusthof Classic Chai Dao Knife

Wusthof Classic Chai Dao Knife : One Wusthof Classic knife combines the high-end performance of 3 knives: santoku, cleaver and chef's knife for fast, accurate ultra-efficient prep. With the razor-sharp cutting edge, this kitchen cutlery tool has the weight of a cleaver to butcher large cuts of meat, and a rounded edge to trim closely from bone. The Wusthof Chai Dao Knife has all the outstanding benefits of a santoku, with the heft and perfect rocking motion to dice, chop, slice or mince potatoes, onions, cabbage or carrots. Works with equal agility to cut thick-stalk vegetables, such as celery, broccoli, cauliflower or kohlrabi, with split-second precision. Cut vegetables paper-thin, julienne or slice meat in uniform strips for stir fry. Extra-wide blade allows knuckle clearance to quickly and comfortably perform any prep. The wide blade of this Classic Wusthof knife crushes ingredients, such as garlic or herbs and ensures easy transfer from cutting board to pan. Designed in consultation with culinary experts, this Wusthof Classic knife is the must-own kitchen workhorse. With the distinctive qualities of a chef's knife, the rigid blade absorbs impact and the slight curve enhances balance. The Wusthof Chai Dao Knife slices meats deli-thin to thick, cuts melons, vegetables and fruits, maintaining extreme sharpness longer. Wusthof's own PEtec edge yields a smoother, more refined edge, with dramatically-increased sharpness and retention along the entire length of the blade. Precision-forged from of a single piece of Wusthof's own rust-free, high-carbon steel, and laser-cut to exact specifications, this is the knife every seasoned chef wants in the kitchen. Precision bolster allows cutting and sharpening along the entire edge, and use of the full blade to the heel. Triple compression rivets attach the high-impact handle securely to the full tang for superior balance and maneuverability. Ergonomic handle ensures a comfortable grip. Hand wash. 7"L.

I had this sent to my moms house for christmas. I used it originally mincing garlic and shallots with amazing ease. I started using it for everything and this by far is my new favorite knife. The weight and balance allows it to do most of the work for you.

I was looking forward to this delivery. I anticipated this would be a great knife, and it hasn't let me down. From cutting up raw carrots and potatoes, to chopping onions, meats. It's doing a job for me!

I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL OF THE WUSTHOF KNIVES FOR MY HUSBAND AND HE LOVES THEM ALL. I HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN BANDED FROM USING THEM BECAUSE HE DOESN'T THINK THAT I TAKE CARE OF THEM AS I SHOULD.

When I first saw this knife in Chef's Catalog it really caught my eye. After reading through the details and specifications I knew I had to have it. This is one fantastic knife! Like the marketing material says, it combines all of the features and uses of a chef's knife, a santoku and a cleaver. The exaggerated curved blade is especially good for chopping and dicing, and the Ptech edge, a new blade technique now available from Wusthof holds it edge wonderfully. It has a very good heft to it which, for me, means a great deal more control than lighter knives. Well done Wusthof!
