KSDM0767: DM0767 Classic Meat Cleaver
Shun Cutlery
The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver features a big, thick blade suitable for processing larger cuts of bone-in meat or breaking down whole poultry. Use it to separate spare ribs or cut a chicken down to size. Chopping beef for stew is another great use for a cleaver. The back of the blade can be used to tenderize meat as well. A cleaver comes in especially handy for chopping up meat and bones for stock, and works its magic on whole lobster as well.

As you might expect, a blade that gets this kind of use must be tougher and thicker, rather than razor thin. The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver is made of AUS8A, a high-carbon stainless steel that offers strength, hardness, wear resistance, and can be easily re-sharpened as needed. The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary designs. It has a riveted handle in ebony Pakkawood to match the rest of the Shun Classic line. The Classic line 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.

Great Cleaver, but a little soft.
I sort of have love/hate relationship with this cleaver. The handle shape and finish on this cleaver are fabulous. It is easy to aim where you are chopping, and the optimal weight and polished finish lets it glide through thick meat and vegetables with just a good tap if you put a good sharp edge on it. (Really takes a smoking sharp edge with no cutting friction when sharpened with my Wicked Edge System.) My big concern is the metallurgy of the DM0767. It is advertised as serious meat and bone cutter, but I got dents in the edge just chopping some large chicken drum stick bones. Haven't tried any heavy beef bones, could only imagine the dent damage if I tried that. I think Shun engineering should do a serious evaluation of the tempering and steel selection for this product. I bought a couple more sample cleavers for a fraction of the price and sharpened them with the same method and angles. They can crush heavy bones of any type without phasing the edge, so I know a little improvement would make this Shun a better product. Except for no bones, this is a real nice multi purpose cleaver.
