Our craftsmen make suitable edge geometry for left handed version by hand sharpening process at US$10 extra. Please allow 3 to 6 days for the left handed version to deliver.

For your information, most of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.

However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.



This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    worth the money

    i was looking for an alternative to carbon steel "cleaver", the chinese "sang dao" is better for those kind of knives. the out-of-box honing was good but not good enough for my standard - i use such knives for sharp cutting like chef knife - so the first honing by myself happened soon and showed this impressing quality of that AUS8, which is pretty close to german D2 and with this probably the best stainless steel for knives - i dont see any sense in right or left hand honing, it could be done sharper, thats what i expect from japanese producers. it will have a good future here in germany -shipping quick, packgae good - for that price in stainless a very good deal - my best appreciation for that AUS8-steel! the japanese just copy this traditional chinese style - why dont they show some creativity in improving the blade? still japanese cleavers are the best in the world because of steel quality but there could be done more in japan - just as my fotos show - test it! shanta

    Nice daily cleaver

    Having owned the cleaver for several months now and using it on a daily basis, I can honestly say it is now my most used knife. It came nicely sharpened out of the box and has retained the edge over several months. Very low maintenance. One of my first concerns was the two piece wood handle that seemed to be smaller than the tang. Over time, the wood has absorbed back some moisture and has since expended to be almost entirely flush with the tang. Very happy with the knife. Looks great too.

    A satisfying cutting experience

    The knife was packaged nicely, and is of solid construction. It's easy to clean, and holds an edge well. Cutting vegetables is now one of my favourite parts of cooking. It could have been sharper out of the box, but this will help me to develop my skill of sharpening. I was apprehensive about getting the 220mm length, but I'm glad I did, as it allows for me to transport large quantities of chopped vegetables, and the weight is nice. Overall I'm very satisfied with the knife, and look forward to using it in years to come. :)

    The new toy

    I am very happy with my new cleaver. It is very handy for chopping and mincing. Maybe it needs some sharpening, but easy to do. The 220mm is really big enough for all the tasks in the kitchen.
