The lure of Ginsan amongst many knife lovers and users is understandable. Ginsan, or G3, is Hitachiís special stainless steel which, in the hands of a good blacksmith, can offer similar sharpness and edge retention to carbon steel. Ginsan is also known as Silver 3 or Ginsanko and it is the favored stainless steel for use in making Japanese traditional style single bevel knives. It is rare that such blades are made from any stainless steel and this shows how similar Ginsan can be to a high carbon alloy in many regards.

This cleaver is another unusual use for Ginsan as you rarely see the steel used for this style of knives. The inner core is wrapped in a stainless steel cladding that has a nice satin brushed finish. Simple and effective! The 3-rivet handle is made from black pakka wood and features a nice beveled junction to the blade face.

There is little fancy about this cleaver that is not essential to its main task. The dimensions are pretty standard for a knife of this size and the overall look is very business-like. Some nicely engraved kanji characters are the only stylistic relief to the blade and they work really well in adding just a touch of class. We like it a lot.

      Nice fit and finish and great balance, November 3, 2019

    Rarely seen a Chinese cleaver made with Ginsan steel. This cleaver is a good size for me. Not too big to be intimidating to use. Fit and finish is first rate and start sharp for a few weeks since I first used it. I hope Yasunori make more knives available to USA.
