The Zwilling Pro 4 1/2 inch Mini Cleaver is designed as an all-purpose blade that is comfortable to hold and designed to give you a firm, solid grip as you slice, dice, chop or mince. You get superb cutting control thanks to the innovative wedge shape of its very sharp blade. Plus, the bolster, or base of the knife that separates your hand from the blade, is angled, making it even easier cut up in the kitchen. Pro knives are designed by Henckels in conjunction with architect, Matteo Thun. Every Henckels Pro knife comes with a lifetime guarantee and is made in Germany.
