At first sight, the Chinese knives may seem clumsy. They also look quite similar. But as with so many other things, when you start using them, you realize that a new world opens up!
Chop, split, cut thin slices, scrape up, say whatever the wide blade does not provide support and guidance for. With different thick blades, the areas of use vary. Thin blades that cut with precision and ease. Heavier and stronger blades mean that first chicken bones and then pork, game and beef bones are no problem.
Not least, you quickly learn how easy it is to move what you have just cut up to a serving plate or pot. With the wide blade you get under and can lift up!
