If you have ever been intrigued with the classic Chinese cleaver but have yet to take the plunge, this keenly priced example of the genre might just be what you have been waiting for.

Tsubazo is a knife making company operating in Seki City, home of blade and sword makers for over 700 years. They are a household name in Japan where they sell their wares through local shops, food stores, and supermarkets. They are made with a stainless steel that is easy to maintain and sharpen.

This is a relatively thin blade for a cleaver, which makes for a knife that is easy to use and control. Cleavers are the one blade many eastern chefs and cooks use for almost every task in the kitchen. The sharp edge of the knife is used for cutting, while the blunter top edge is used to pound and tenderize meat. Turned on its side, the cleaver is an excellent tool for smashing garlic and ginger. You can even use it to transfer food from cutting board to pan.

These knives are not particularly sharp out of the box so we recommend using our finish sharpening service if you don't know how to sharpen.

      Don't let the price fool you. This thing is great., March 29, 2021
    Posted By: James

    I've had mine for about 4 years. The steel itself is very good. Not the hardest, and needs work out of the box, but it takes a Very nice edge, and is very easy to sharpen, and sharpen quickly. I have no complaints about the steel.

    After 4 years, it's time to replace the handle. This is where the money was saved, the handle is cheap, and rather than a fully seated blade, they just drilled a hole to drop the blade into, and used a cheap 2 part brass rivet to keep it in place.

    This isn't a down side for me. It's a surprising amount of knife, for short money. Now I'm shopping for a replacement handle, and I'm excite at the prospect of having the knife finally look and feel like the favorite workhorse that it is.

      Great size, balance, and finish for price but the edge sucks., April 22, 2020
    Posted By: EKG

    This cleaver is really great for the price. Balance is good. I like the weight and it has a sturdy blade width. As stated in the description, the edge on the saber grind does indeed suck. Personally, I would prefer a slightly thinner blade with a full flat ground blade but I am happy with this as a budget purchase to work on my cleaver skills. Hand is sturdy and well attached. The Minus 1 start for the bad factory edge and the "sharp" square edges on the blade dig into my palm when gripping up onto the blade.
