Everything about this beautiful knife screams quality. It is balanced beautifully and is super thin for a cleaver, made from VG-10 and clad with 16 layers of SUS410 pattern Damascus stainless steel on each side for strength and flexibility. This metal is corrosion resistant and easy to maintain. This style of cladding not only adds to the beauty of the blade, it also reduces friction during slicing thus maximizing food release.

A Rockwell Hardness rating of 60-61 ensures that it takes and holds its incredibly sharp edge longer. The edge has a cutting angle of 16 degrees (compound 32 degrees).

The Shun Classic vegetable cleaver is meant to be used more like a thin chef's knife, santoku, or large nakiri. It is not to be used for cutting through bones. The finely finished D-shaped pakka wood handle fits perfectly in the palm and provides a secure and comfortable grip. This is a knife that once used will become a favored tool for most of your cutting and chopping tasks.

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.

Great value for damascus cladding.
