The Kiwami Stainless Steel Cleaver is made by Aichi Hamano, located in Seki City. The company produces a large variety of knives using many different steels and techniques. This cleaver is constructed from 8A stainless steel. 8A is better known as AUS-8A. It is almost the same thing as AUS-8 except that 8A has been annealed. Both AUS-8 and AUS-8A are very similar to 440C and VG-10. AUS is made by Aichi Seiko and it is capable of taking a screaming sharp edge. The blade is hardened to about 60 Rockwell.

This is a classic Chinese cleaver in terms of dimensions and proportions. It measures 195mm on the edge with a height of 100mm. The grinds are very well executed and are extremely thin, making this model perfectly suited to chop vegetables and other ingredients. There is a very slight belly to the edge profile which reduces the chance of the end sticking into the cutting board.

It is no wonder that in most Eastern kitchens the Chinese cleaver is the sole cutting and slicing tool. With such a range of applications, cleavers are fun, novel, and versatile options to fill pretty much any role there is for kitchen cutlery.

    5  A sleeper, most useful knife I've owned, July 25, 2020
    Posted By: Jacoby - verified customer

    My coworkers are constantly borrowing it because it's so satisfying. I expected a prep knife out of this thing, and bought a 9.5" k-tip gyuto as a new general use knife... I don't use the k-tip. Cai Dao translates to "only blade" and is a name well earned. It is IMPERITIVE that you learn the proper cutting method with a Cai Dao if you purchase. Once you do you'll have the fastest hands on the line.
