Product description

The Chinese knife is ideal for Asian dishes but supports you in every conceivable cutting task. The blade is extremely thin and the relatively heavy weight becomes a skillful advantage when the knife glides effortlessly through meat, vegetables, or herbs. The Chinese kitchen knife should not be confused with a chopper, because the blade is too thin to chop bones or similar substances. Instead, you can achieve delicate cuts yourself with the Chinese knife and thus have an all-around talent for many application areas.

The Olavson Chinese knife is 100% made in Germany and is hand-ground to extreme sharpness in Solingen at the traditional 'Clauberg' company. Olavson's powder metallurgical high-tech steel is known for its all-rounder steel. Thanks to the fantastic properties of Elmax steel, your knife remains stainless, is acid-resistant, and can be worked to extreme sharpness by diamond cutting due to its fine-grained carbide distribution.

Craftsmanship from Solingen

Based on the design of the Olavson Chef knife, we have developed the Olavson Chinese knife with the traditional company Clauberg. Clauberg is one of the oldest sharpening families in Solingen and employs only the most experienced sharpening masters.

They grind the powder-metallurgical steel by hand to this thin, extreme sharpness.


This is why customers love Olavson products

Cuts great, fits perfectly in the hand and the handling also impresses me. I've never owned such a good knife.
