Description

This vegetable cleaver’s broad blade enables you to slice everything from melons to eggplant with ease. Square-shaped heel with pointed tip is great for removing eyes from potatoes. This style is also known as a Chinese chef’s knife, as it makes quick work of cabbage, bok choy and other staples of Chinese cuisine.

Shun Classic’s tasteful and contemporary design features a beautiful Damascus-clad blade and D-shaped ebony pakkawood handle. Behind the knife’s beauty is function: a razor-sharp blade offering precision performance.

Shun Classic knives feature a core of proprietary VG-MAX super steel clad on both sides with 34 layers of Damascus stainless steel. The woodgrain pattern of the steel allows the blade to slide easily through food. The result is a knife that’s sharp, durable and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold.

NSF-certified knife meets the high-evel safety standards for professional kitchens.

Great Cleaver.
I fell in love with the look of this knife and then was lucky enough to receive it as a gift. I cannot compare it to anything besides my old college dorm cleaver (cheap Target type), but it does work great. I can't say that it is the very best for the price, but I do enjoy using it. It chops through anything I put on my wooden board, and almost as important... it really looks beautiful.
*I have since purchased a few other Shun knives

Great alternative
This takes a little getting used to but when you do it makes good sense for prep work. It is quick and neat. Just think of it as a broad chef's knife. Cuts are precise and clean. One can make quick work of a whole lot of vegetables. I have used a Chinese cleaver for years for prep and would be slowed down by a conventional Western style knife on veggies.
