Something about a cleaver gives a cook a sense of confidence, especially for those prep jobs that involve lots of slicing and dicing. Asian cooks use these knives particularly for meals that involve lots of stir-fry ingredients. The wide blade easily slices through large vegetables, such as eggplant, bok choy, and even comes in handy for poultry and meat. Made in Germany, each Twin Signature knife features a hand-honed, laser-sharpened blade using Henckels signature FRIODUR high-carbon, ice-hardened process for producing quality stainless steel knives. The ergonomic handle has a traditional three-rivet construction encompassing a full tang for high durability.
