21 - Kiwi Brand cleaver knife with an eight inch blade and a wooden handle.

The 21's profile is somewhere between a traditional chef's knife and a Chinese cleaver.  The blade is 1mm thick and the cutting edge has a double bevel, so this knife has no problem cutting through vegetables and meat. The wide blade is 61mm and has a good surface area for picking up ingredients that have been chopped or sliced.  Unlike a traditional Chinese cleaver, the 21 has a pointed tip.

The blade is made from Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel (SUS420J2) which has been hardened and tempered for optimal sharpness. This knife has a razor sharp, double bevelled cutting edge and it has a high quality hardwood handle which is secured with brass rivets.

As the handle wood is untreated, it will benefit from the occasional application of a food grade oil to maintain the health of the wood, avoiding shrinkage and keeping the handle looking like new.  See the "knife care" tab for more details.

Keep the blade away from strong acids or alkalis such as fish sauce or vinegar.
Do not use wire wool to clean as it may damage the blade. Wash with a soft sponge and dry immediately.

Avoid putting wooden handled knives in a dishwasher as the high temperature and extended period in water will shrink and dry the wood and will ultimately ruin the knife.

This knife is made with a Japanese high carbon martensitic stainless steel alloy(SUS420J2) which has the benefit of being harder and therefore sharper than many other stainless steels but the trade-off is that they are more prone to staining.

If your knife has a wooden handle, it is recommended to oil the handle occasionally with a food grade oil. The choice of oil is a personal preference however groundnut and rapeseed oil appear to be popular but avoid olive oil as this can go rancid quite quickly. This will help maintain the wood and keep your knife looking like new. Be very careful while doing this to avoid cutting yourself.

The perfect alternative to the santoku!

Sharp out of the box & even sharper after light honing, its shape and balance is as good or better than other knives costing over five times as much. The handle on the Kom-Kom version is better, but that's a very minor niggle. Highly recommended.
