Wusthof Classic Chai Dao Knife and Sharpener : 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 blade in this knife and sharpener set 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. Crushes garlic or herbs and ensures easy transfer from cutting board to pan. 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. Precision bolster allows cutting and sharpening along the entire edge, and use of the full blade to the heel. Triple compression rivets attach high-impact handle securely to the full tang for superior balance and maneuverability. Ergonomic handle ensures a comfortable grip. Hand wash. 7"L. Made in Germany. Lifetime manufacturer warranty. This Wusthof knife set includes the blade-specific Asian knife sharpener to maintain a razor-sharp edge on chai dao, santoku and nakiri knives. Two-stage manual knife sharpener has sharpening rods that are pre-set at the correct angles for Asian blades. The first stage carbide slot (coarse) resets a dull blade. Second stage ceramic slot (fine) finishes the edge to honed, polished sharpness. Wipe clean.

This knife is everything it promised to be. It has an excellent balance and the tall bolt makes chopping with a rocking motion fast and easy. I'd highly recommend purchasing the sharpener along with the knife.
