Sugimoto is well know and reputable kitchen knife maker and especially famous for the practical Chinese Cleaver.
From an experienced craftsman’s viewpoint, Sugimoto’s traditional handcrafting methods and their custom convex edge geometry, their hand-sharpening are the secrets to their outstanding cutting performance.
Since we first started to offer the Sugimoto Chinese Cleavers, over 10 years ago, our professional customers have praised them for their fine cutting performance and quality.
We often receive requests and inquires about small size, compact handling, high-quality Chinese Cleavers, so we recently decided to begin selling the Sugimoto SF-4030 Small Chinese Cleaver, with Carbon Steel blade.
The blade is made with a very pure Japanese virgin carbon steel, which provides excellent edge retention, edge sharpness and ease of re-sharpening.
The Natural Wood Handle has a comfortable rounded shape, two carved grooves that improve grip, a durable Stainless Steel bolster and balances the weight of the blade very well.
The Sugimoto SF-4030 Chinese Cleaver is the smaller size with lighter than standard for comfortable balance and weight.
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 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 Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
Lies perfectly balanced in the hand. Out of the box already very sharp... sharpened, frighteningly sharp! Will join one of my favorite knives. Very fast delivery... Perfect!
Wont be disappointed
Extremely fast shipping! Arrived in excellent condition and also carefully packaged. The edge profile is superior to all of my other cleavers making it equally effective whether one prefers to rock or chop. It is very light weight but does beautiful work even with heavier root vegetables. Obviously the steel is highly reactive but using the “one towel wet, one towel dry” method you can easily avoid any serious discoloration. I could not be happier with this purchase.
Used my new cleaver all day today. I could not be happier with its performance and style. I especially love the edge profile by far the most efficient I have ever seen. It won’t be my last cleaver but for now it is superior to any other in my collection. Thank you again for the fast shipping.
