The Shogun Series X 7” Chinese cleaver (chukabocho in Japanese) is perfect for breaking down smaller cuts of boneless meats and poultry as well as slicing, dicing, mincing and chopping tough vegetables (including large heads of cabbage and lettuce) and fruits of all kinds. In Asian kitchens this blade style operates as the ‘chef’s knife’ of vegetables, offering surprising versatility, nimbleness and a screamingly sharp edge. The spine of the blade can be used to mince ginger or garlic while the sharp, flat edge provides more contact with the cutting board and exceptional precision. The extra wide blades allows for excellent knuckle clearance and ensures food can be easily scooped up for simple transfer from cutting board to pot or pan. The exquisite hammered tsuchime finish on this blade is not only a beautiful statement in craftsmanship, it also serves the purpose of reducing drag and minimizing stuck on food.
