Not to be confused with the butcher’s cleaver, the chopping knife or ‘Chinese Chopper’ is a knife inspired by ones traditional in China. A perfect tool for the preparation of large vegtables and when handled properly can be both a delicate and quick tool for chopping. This knife is not recommended for butchering and jointing large pieces of meat. The Western Pakkawood range comes gift boxed with a leather sheath that offers the perfect protection for your knife, protecting yourself and others from its supremely sharp edge. The blade has a 67 layers of VG-10 Damascus steel, the highest quality steel with a high carbon content that gives it exceptional toughness. The exquisite craftmanship in these knives can be seen in the elegant layered damascus pattern on the blade. The blade is finished with deep black finished Pakkawood handle which strikes a balance between opulence and hard wearing-durability.
