The beautiful white ceramic blade retains its original sharpness ten times longer than stainless steel. The ceramic blade does not retain odor and and is impervious to acids, juices, oils and salts. Fruits and vegetables remain fresh after cutting by not browning; another benefit to ceramic. The 6-Inch cleaver is ideal for mincing, slicing and dicing. The ergonomic handle provides precise control; you won’t want to put this knife down. The ceramic blade should be washed by hand.
