Asian-style, engraved chopping knife made of
premium quality forged steel

Sometimes looking to the other side of the world for inspiration, despite the great products available closer to home, can pay off in a big way. The new chopping knife from Swiss kitchenware specialist Kuhn Rikon is a good example. Chinese tradition, high quality materials and unique Swiss design skills have been combined to create a remarkable multi-cultural kitchen tool. It’s yet another proof of how potent a place the kitchen can be for cross-cultural interaction!

We were impressed, not only by the special look of this new Swiss-designed CLEAVER, but also by its balanced weight. The knife is forged out of a single piece of German quality steel. This makes it extremely long-lasting, rugged and, of course, rust-free. The squared off blade, ground on both sides, carries a delicate engraving of Lucky Clouds. The Chinese cloud symbol stands for heavenly closeness and luck – and who wouldn’t want to cut themselves off a large slice of that!

Whatever you use the knife for – cutting up meat or fish, slicing vegetables, chopping herbs, or crushing garlic of ginger – you’ll find you can work not only with more precision and speed, but also with less effort. The difference in height between the handle and the blade makes for perfectly balanced movement with every cut. And when you’ve finished chopping, the broad blade is perfect for sliding everything off the chopping board into the pan. It’s fusion cooking in the premium class.

Kuhn Rikon products are available to buy from selected retailers and online in the Kuhn Rikon Webshop at www.kuhnrikon.com
