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.
Misono No.87 Chinese Cleaver is the Thicker and Heavier Weight Version of No.86 Chinese Cleaver
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.
