Wusthof Gourmet Cleaver

In its seventh-generation of family ownership, Wusthof has been making some of the finest kitchen cutlery in the world since 1814. The Gourmet line features precision stainless-steel blades that resist stains and rust and hold an exceedingly sharp edge. Chopping through thick meat, bone and tendons demands the heavyweight, well-balanced blade of a cleaver. Stamped blade is made of high-carbon stainless steel for top performance and durability. Triple-riveted high-impact plastic handle provides a secure, comfortable grip. 8"-long blade; 4 /34"-long handle; 12.5 oz.. Made in Germany.

This is not a cleaver
December 28, 2014
After 3 months of use the blade chipped while breaking down a T-bone steak. I was able to return to W and S without a problem and the general consensus at the store was that this also should not be listed as a cleaver given the thin blade.
Strongly recommend not buying this if you intend to actually use it to butcher any meat.
Cons: Quality, Fragile

Our Favorite Knife
September 21, 2013
I bought this cleaver for my husband's birthday. We butcher our own poultry and he has always wanted a good knife to do so. My husband told me this was the best birthday present he has ever received! The knife works great on everyday chopping of vegetables too!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Easy to Store, Size, Strength, Versatile, Sharpness, Shape, Weight
