Preparing herbs the delicate way with WMF chopping knives
Chopping knives produce big results from little things
With a WMF chopping knife you can turn spices, herbs or cheese into the finest of ingredients. The gentle rocking motion is the best way of bringing out the essential oils in spices or herbs, or the magnificent taste of cheese.
Rock your ingredients to perfection
In times gone by chopping knives were used for all kinds of tasks in the kitchen, such as handling meat or vegetables. The rocking motion provided the ideal distribution of force, and the double blade could effortlessly chop up bigger chunks of meat or vegetables. Since then some tasks previously undertaken by chopping knives have been taken over by gadgets like meat grinders or blenders. Thankfully, though, chopping knives are still indispensable, because they are the ideal knife for preparing herbs and spices.
Two hands cut better than one!
WMF chopping knives are handled with two hands. Place your food on a scratch-resistant surface and rock the chopping knife back and forth over the ingredients. The gentle rocking motion cuts herbs in the ideal way without crushing them, and spices are chopped up gently. The double-edged blade cuts up ingredients without being too harsh. Our WMF chopping knives are shaped in a way that means ingredients are cut rather than being crushed – an essential quality! Only by being gentle can you keep the unmistakeable flavours that fresh herbs and spices are known for.
An ergonomic design for better handling
WMF chopping knives are specially designed to be handled comfortably with both hands. We have developed the traditional shape of the chopping knife to make working with it as pleasurable as can be. The handles of our chopping knives are shaped so that your hand can nestle against them perfectly, which makes it possible to distribute the force evenly. Our chopping knives have a blade length of between 15 and 20 cm. The blades are made from special blade steel, which ensures long-lasting sharpness.
