In contrast to other kitchen knives, the cleaver has an especially tough edge meant to withstand repeated blows directly into thick meat and dense cartilage and even bone. You can now cook your best Chinese meals with the help of this top-quality Cleaver.
This Chinese Cleaver Knife has an especially tough edge with exceptional sharpness, so you can get through tough bones with ease. In contrast to all other kitchen tools but one, a meat tenderizer, it is the only one designed to be swung like a hammer.
The edge of a meat cleaver does not need to be particularly sharp, because the knife’s design, like that of a hatchet or an axe, relies on sheer momentum to cut efficiently, to slash straight through rather than slicing in a sawing motion. Part of the momentum derives from how hard you swing, of course, and the other part derives from how heavy the cleaver is.
The I.O.Shen Chinese Cleaver is ideal for all sorts of butchering such as cutting through meat, bones and cartilage.
This traditional-looking Chinese Cleaver Knife is manufactured from Triplex Steel Technology. The secret is the centre layer of Rockwell 62 stainless steel that provides the ultimate cutting edge, strength and durability. In Chinese cooking, it is common for cooks to have a single knife that can perform many functions. The knife is used to make light work of chopping through bones and then can be used to mince both meat and vegetables.
The full-tang design element also makes this range of kitchen knives a pure delight to have on display in any modern kitchen. Like all master-grade knives, a cleaver should be hand washed. With proper care, you will have years of enjoyment from using this knife.
