Shun Kaji 7" Cleaver

In Asian kitchens, cleavers like this one function as chef's knives for chopping and slicing vegetables and boneless meat and then transferring food to the pot. Made in Japan and developed exclusively for us by Shun, it merges new technology and centuries-old handcrafting traditions. 65-layer blade features a premium SG-2 powdered steel cutting core clad in 64 layers of forged nickel/stainless steel Damascus. Inspired by centuries-old samurai sword-making techniques, the blade's construction creates a supersharp cutting edge. Wide blade efficiently chops and slices, then aids in transferring food to the pot or bowl. Handle is made of moisture-resistant, resin-infused PakkaWood, shaped for comfort and control. This NSF-certified knife meets the high-level safety standards for professional kitchens. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Keeps it's edge well!!!
October 6, 2013
I've been cooking professionally for the last 20 years. I purchased this clever a few years ago and I love the thing. I'm able to fly through vegetables in no time. The edge keeps it's sharpness well. As for cutting meats, it works flawlessly. DO NOT USE TO CUT THROUGH BONE!!! This is only used for vegetables and chopping meat. Shun is my choice of knives as is for my kitchen staff.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Balance, Easy to Clean, Versatile, Sharpness
