Roselli has now come out with their version of the Chinese cook's knife! This cleaver type knife has a blade just over 6" made out of the carbon steel they are known for and is 1/8" thick at the spine. The overall length of the knife is about 11" to give you the comfort and control we are looking for. The complete knife weighs about 14 ounces so there is plenty of weight to glide through any kitchen needs. The handle is made out of their curly birch.
