Cleaver With Wooden Saya and Bamboo Box

Often called Chinese cleaver 中華包丁 (chukabocko), its broad blade is ideal for cutting large chunks of meat, preparing spare ribs or quickly chopping hard vegetables without tiring your wrist. 100% handmade. Ultra-sharp Japanese 440C high-carbon stainless steel. Hidden full tang. Black pakkawood handle. HRC hardness: 59-60. Weight: 294g. Perfectly balanced. Stainless. Wooden Saya (sheath or blade cover) included with each knife. Lifetime warranty. The flat surface of the blade also makes a great tool for crushing garlic, nuts, or ginger. Plus, its wide blade gives it the ability to scoop up your chopped and sliced ingredients safely and transfer them to a container or pan. The “Tsuchime” 槌目 (hammered) pattern creates tiny pockets of air between the blade and the food being cut. This ancestral Japanese method reduces drag, thus preventing food from sticking to the blade.
