From beautiful swords to chef’s knives, Thai blacksmiths have adapted their skills since the days of the Thai-Burma war. Today, they make Thai knives from stainless steel, cut and sharpened to traditional standards. This chef's knife has a full tang blade set in a smooth, native Thai Pradu wood handle. It’s a medium-weight cleaver with rounded corners and has a longer knife face, making it a hard-working jack-of-all-trades that feels just right in your hand. Great for all-around cooking.
