KSDM0712: DM0712 Classic Vegetable Cleaver
Shun Cutlery
The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver, sometimes known as a Chinese cleaver, is a large squared knife with a very wide blade. Every part of it can be put to use. The edge is used to chop vegetables, especially larger ones such as cabbage, which are frequently a part of Chinese cuisine. Yet some cooks find their cleaver nimble enough for almost every kind of chopping and slicing. The flat of the blade makes a great tool for smashing garlic cloves or ginger, too. The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver feels solid, but Shun's thinner blade makes it easy to handle so food preparation is a pleasure. Please do NOT use the Vegetable Cleaver on joints, bones or meat. The Meat Cleaver is made for that.

The Shun Classic Vegetable Cleaver is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary cutlery. The Shun Classic line features beautiful Damascus-clad blades and D-shaped ebony Pakkawood handles. Yet behind these handcrafted knives' beauty is function: razor-sharp blades offering top performance. Shun's proprietary high-performance VG-MAX steel, which provides incredible edge retention, is clad with Damascus stainless steel, then ground and bead-blasted, revealing the flowing pattern of the layered steel. The result is a line of knives that are sharp, durable, and corrosion resistant, as well as beautiful to behold. The Shun Classic line also offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.

THE!!!! vegetable cleaver
I bought this as a birthday gift for my son who is in culinary school. He loves the knife!!! Can't get over the edge retention and overall fit and finish. Makes short work of any vegetable he throws at it. I have used it a few times, like it so much I will probably be buying one for me!!

Good buy, IDK about now though.
Great for cutting vegetables, like it was designed for. Was a little heavier than I expected, but still a great knife overall. IDK If I'd buy it again after the price went up.
