Misono 440 Series No.82 Chinese Cleaver (Narrower Blade Width Version, 8.6 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

Misono produces the 440 Series to meet the demanding requirement of culinary professionals, who need knives that have passed rigorous quality control standards, have excellent rust-resistance and cutting performance, and are also quick and easy to re-sharpen.

Misono uses “High 16 Chromium and Molybdenum Stainless Steel" (HRc. 58-59), which offers superior durability, rust resistance and ease of sharpening than standard Molybdenum stainless steels.

This knife features full tang construction, Quincewood handle scales and stainless steel bolsters for extra durability and improved blade balance.

The Chinese Cleaver is a highly versatile general-purpose kitchen knife that can be used to slice, chop, mince, scrape, and even crush ingredients. The tall blade of the Chinese Cleaver enables it to be safely guided with the knuckles of your free hand when 'tap chopping’, ‘push cutting’, or ‘pull cutting’. This makes it possible to cut large fruit and vegetables, such as cabbages, easily and safely.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems. 

We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for a long time.



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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a 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 a 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.

    Great knife but one issue

    The knife was advertised as 50/50 bevel but I realized that it had a 70/30 right handed bevel, and I am left handed so it was a problem, but for other people it wouldn’t be a problem. I fixed it but the knife is great!!! It’s a beast. Love it

    Amazing weight and feel

    HOLY ****, this cleaver is the best. Im so happy I got the narrow width, it makes such a difference since this is an everday cutting tool, more than for just butchering. Came super quick. Could not be happier
