Hitohira Togashi White #1 Stainless Clad Chinese Cleaver 180mm Taihei Rosewood Handle
This product is currently sold out.
Hitohira Togashi knives have some of the best steel treatment, aesthetics and fit and finish from Hitohira. Kenji Togashi-san is a mastersmith who works almost exclusively with the family sharpener to create superb cutting tools that are extremely rewarding to sharpen. We recommend Togashi blades to cooks with deep appreciation for craft and forging, with healthy interest in hand sharpening and polishing with whetstones.
The edge is White #1 carbon steel that takes a superb edge easily. We recommend the lucky users to keep it clean and dry the edge to prevent it from rusting. A benign discolouration/patina will form regardless, thus creating an awesome contrast against the stainless cladding.
A Chinese cleaver is an all-purpose blade that is gaining a huge popularity in North America recently for its utility and efficiency. Despite its bone-cleaver-esque shape, it is abolutely not for going through bones, but for slicing, pulverizing, and chopping produce and boneless protein. (For going through bones we recommend this meat cleaver) Given the size, it does require some adjustment and usage research. Not for the faint of heart, but once you get into it, it is highly addictive!
