This Sugimoto Cleaver measures 190mm X 95 and has a thin blade for easy use when chopping vegetables, fruits and anything else for that matter. The RC hardness of the Western CM knives is 58 ~ 63 and the cleaver is made from chromium and molybdenum steel. Sugimoto is known through out Japan for their quality Chinese Cleavers and they own a large share of the market. This particular cleaver is made with Chromium and Molybdenum and takes a very sharp edge.
This nimble and very sharp cleaver is now my #1 prep tool. My Chinese made cleavers are relegated to conversation piece status and my Gyutos are generally resting in the knife block.
Very good service.Thank you!!!
This wonderful cleaver is the perfect size for 1-4 people. Stainless is the way to go if you cannot assure your knives are cleaned and dried immediately after use. In addition,the service from this store is fantastic. If you have any questions,simply contact the owner. He is quite knowledgeable.

Lovely knife. Beautiful handle,very good balance. When I chop even gently on end-grain,sometimes the blade sinks in - knife stays upright if I let go! Overall great design and steel for a below-custom knife. Recommended.
