We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Though they do resemble the bone-splitting cleavers of butchers, Chinese chef's knives are, actually, a much more versatile instrument. Our selection includes models ideal for chopping, dicing, slicing, peeling and skinning. You may find that you can replace several knives with just one of these. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best chinese chefs knife on Amazon.
