'Chef' doesn't mean that you're the best cook, it simply means 'boss'.Tom Colicchio

The Hashima Chinese Cleaver knows how to chop properly. The blade consists of a VG10 Core, covered by 73-layers of high quality Japanese Damascus steel. A vacuum heat process is used to harden the blade, which results in a hardness of 60 ± 2 HRC. In the end, each knife gets a hand sharpening finish. This ensures a long-lasting sharpness, which takes your cooking to a new level and increases your pleasure.

The handle is made of premium red-acid branch wood and black sandalwood using a special production process. The wood is naturally unique and can therefore lead to slight variations in design and colour. This is what makes the knife unique because you will never see a knife like this anywhere else again!

The Chinese Cleaver is an extremely versatile and very handy showstopper. What is special is its unusually wide blade, which is about twice as long as it is high. You can use it to cut or chop tendons and bones effortlessly. Even more: the front part of the blade is extremely sharp and is used by professional and hobby cooks for processing fish and meat. A powerful knife that enriches your knife set and allows you to create new preparation variations.

This collection is named after Japanese islands and each knife is as beautiful as the islands themselves. Characteristic of the WASABI Island Special Collection are the colorful handles, which are very comfortable to ensure long and fatigue-free working.

Knives from this collection are the ideal gift for passionate and aspiring hobby chefs, making even the most demanding friends and family members very satisfied.
