WMF Chinese knives: chopping and slicing the Asian way
Chinese knives for chopping, cooking and preparing
Enjoy all that Asian cuisine has to offer with WMF Chinese knives. These powerful Chinese knives are ideal for cutting and chopping or for severing tendons and bones!
Chinese knives an asset for European kitchens too!
Chinese knives are not only popular in Asian cuisine. The variety of uses and excellent feel mean that they have also found their way into European kitchens. It is important to distinguish between Chinese chef's knives and Chinese choppers, which are also suitable for deboning meat.
Cut, chop, debone: the versatility of Chinese knives
WMF Chinese knives are available in two versions. Firstly, we can offer you the top-quality Chinese chef's knife. This is also known as a duo dao, and though it has the shape of a meat chopper it isn't used as one. The blade of a Chinese chopper is too thin to shatter bones. It is much better suited to chopping herbs or slicing vegetables and meat. Unlike a European chef's knife the Chinese chef's knife has an extremely wide blade, which is roughly twice as wide as it is deep.
The other version that you will find in our assortment is the Chinese chopper. It is also known as a deba, and is similar to the Japanese hatchet, which is suitable for severing tendons or hacking bones. The chopper's blade is about twice as long as it is deep, and the front part of the blade, which is extremely sharp, is often used for preparing fish or meat. These two versions of Chinese knives open up new possibilities for European cuisine and enhance any set of knives.
