Posted By: Mark KirkwoodI was after a 'real' Japanese cleaver to go for the hard vegetables and also misuse for partially defrosted meat. This is the answer I think. I am impressed with how it copes - I've been deliberately careless about how completely defrosted some meats have been and it copes well (no chipping). In addition it woks well as a proper Nakiri to chop vegetables.
It does put the 'R' into rustic - had some rust on the blade at delivery, but at the price I think that is ok (easily fixed). The handle is - yeah - pretty crap, but again consider the price point. Overall, I'm loving it!
