1 people found this review helpfulFor some time...I'd been looking for a quality light weight Chinese style vegetable cleaver...except in a hard Japanese steel...well this is it! Out of the box the edge was surprisingly good. I gave it about 50 swipes on a leather strop to maximize the factory edge...and it passed the hanging hair test! The fit and finish is quite good...and the blade is absolutely dead straight. It performs as you would expect from it's appearance. The blade falls effortlessly through vegetables...and it slices tomatoes as thin as the thinnest rice paper! It's also wide enough that an entire large diced onion can easily be cleared from the board in one scoop. I haven't used it enough to comment on edge retention...but I'm betting the Aogami Super will hold up quite well. So if, like me...you've been searching for a small cleaver/large Nakiri...this blade is the perfect combination.
