The swing chef chopper is inspired by the nakiri vegetable knife and requested by chefs who get behind the prep table. 7 inches of thin cutting edge backed with tough high carbon steel. This knife has a blade forward weight and balance at the top of the handle. It will do the work for you with a slight push/pull or chop. The profile is designed to sit flat against the cutting board with a rounded razor sharp tip. This is preferred when slicing and chopping.
