3 people found this review helpfulI was searching all over for an authentic CarbonSteel Chinese Cleaver in Germany, all i could find was either StainlessSteel made in china or good but expensive japanese made Cleaver. My search ended, when i accidaently stumoled on Chefknivestogo.
A few Days after the Order, the Cleaver arrived at my Home in Germany.
It exactly like i wanted it, very, very thin Blade measuring 231x110mmm, After a few strikes on my 1000/3000 Combo Stone it achieved a pretty good edge, sharp enough to be cut newspaper. Edge Holding Capability is comparable with the famous german Herder Windmuehle Carbon Knives, good but not as good as Jap Hagane Steel.
Recently, i took it on the Stones again in Order to remove some of the rustprotecting Laquer and smoothed the Edges of the Spine. Now it has taken a nice Patina, which i prefer on a Carbon Knife.
This Knife has become on of my Favorites in my Selection among my traditional Japanese Knives.
Great Buy, takes a great Edge, retains it well, easy to sharpen, kick ass Profile => highly recommended !!
