This Shun Vegetable Cleaver is great for use as a multi-purpose vegetable knife and features the look and benefits of Damascus steel, yet without its rusting problems. The Damascus-look blade profile reduces sticking and results in less damage to the food being cut and faster prep times.
VG-10 stainless steel is clad with 16 layers of SUS410 high-carbon stainless steel on each side, producing a rust-free Damascus style
VG-10 "super steel" is composed of Carbon, Chromium, Cobalt, Manganese, Molybdenum, Silicon and Vanadium
VG-10 holds an incredibly sharp edge longer for easier edge maintenance
Black Pakka Wood handles specifically designed for premium applications.
Got as a gift request from the boyfriend who is really into cooking and he loved it! Uses it every chance he gets.

Not the heaviest,but very sharp. Great for veggies
Nice weight and thinness allow slick cutting - not as highly rated as it should be. Much improved if thinned somewhat and the belly flattened slightly. Can take an edge better than VG10 is reputed to take - comparable to what I can get on aogami steel. Doesn’t hold it as long. However,I use full shinogi depth as bevel on l/h side (a sort of flat back)and about 30 degree microbevel on open side. Edge lasts 4 or 5 times longer. Readily restored to razor sharpness with a couple of light strokes from a polished steel. I now do this on all kitchen knives.
