This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
Good weight, good balance, good construction. Quality item. Five stars for the seller. Got my knife very quickly in great packaging. Would definitely buy from this seller, again! Only negative is that knife could be a bit sharper upon arrival. It's sharp, but not to the degree that I would like. Not a huge deal because I can always sharpen it, later.
Absolutely love it. For a relatively entry-level cleaver, it cuts superb.
Overall everything was beyond perfect. For starters I would like to say that I placed my order on August 4th and my package was delivered on August 6th at 3:00 pm this have been by far the fastest I’ve ever received a package, From across the world no less, anyway the knife itself is perfect. Bought a new Misono Molybdenum Steel Series No.61 Chinese Cleaver (7.4inch) sharpness when arrived was off the chain, haven’t had the need to sharpen it only hone it in once in a while. Overall very good knife, I’ve never owned a Chinese clever and this was definitely the perfect place to start for me! Great clever, light, sharp and quick! Great job all around!!
Love the cleaver. Handles veggies and boneless meats with ease. Was considering carbon but stainless steel is so easy to maintain and am so glad I went with it. The staff was super helpful in answering questions and the shipping time from Japan to the US East Coast was very fast. Would definitely visit again should I need anymore knives but the cleaver is an all around workhorse!
Very good It came so sharp I work as a chef and everyone wants to use it now Highly recommend it
