This Moritaka Chinese Cleaver measures 190mm on the blade. Moritaka offers free re-sharpening service for each new knife. Their knives are made with Aogami Super Steel and come with a Kurouchi finish which adds great aesthetic appeal along with an attractive rosewood oval handle. We at Chefknivestogo highly recommend these knives and are proud to offer them as the only US distributor that we know of.
This is a truly wonderful knife. If you are looking to drop some money on a cleaver you intend to use for a long time this would not be a bad purchase. Handforged,razor sharp out of the box,amazing edge retention and impeccable fit and finish are all attributes of this knife. While it is smalled than most Chukabocho out there its size is perfect for someone working in a professional kitchen where space is tight but a cleaver is still your weapon of choice. It is well balanced and dead straight on the edge,no belly at all. It is slightly thicker than one you might order from Moritaka but perhaps that is just my knife. I have seen absolutely zero loss in functionality though in light of its thickness. This knife is a work of art that I would recommend to any cleaver lover.

After a lot of thought I purchased this Moritaka instead of a stainless blade,I’m so glad I did !
The quality is excellent,it’s a true joy to use and the edge out of the box is superb.
Buy with the knowledge that someone has actually ’made’ the blade for you.
