813 - Kiwi Brand 8" Chinese cleaver knife with a wooden handle.

The 813 Kiwi Brand eight inch cleaver knife has a wide cleaver style blade with a 2mm thick thick spine.

Cleaver knives (sometimes referred to a chopper) are a lighter weight class of "cleavers" and while they can still be used for cutting and slicing meat they are not suitable for cutting though bones. 

They are a general purpose knife that is best suited to jobs like preparing vegetables, and herbs and able to perform all slicing, chopping, and mincing with ease.  Their wide blade design also makes them a convenient tool to use when transferring ingredients from the cutting board to the wok or other cooking pot.

Known globally by their reputation as the best knives that Thailand has to offer, Kiwi Brand and Kom-Kom knives are both attractive and practically suited for everyday use.

The blade is made from SUS420J2 Japanese Martensitic stainless steel, which is a high carbon stainless steel alloy that is specially heat treated and tempered which ensures sharpness and unrivalled durability and it has an ironwood hardwood handle which is attractive and hard-wearing.

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.

Store knives in a dedicated storage solution such as a wooden box or wall hanger, see our knife storage options .

Keep in a safe location away from children.

Great knife for veggie prep
Thursday, 11 June 2020  | 

We don't eat meat, so whilst a cleaver might seem like overkill, this knife actually makes veg prep a lot easier. For example, the huge blade is great for using sideways to crush garlic, then the blade can remove and chop it up v rapidly. The blade is sharp and I have heard great things about the longevity of Kiwi knives so I think it will hold for some time. The knife feels like top quality, and I went for the wood handle for aesthetics. Don't really want it to go through the dishwasher anyway. Fab!
