Kanehide MV Chopper (Bone Cleaver) 135mm Rosewood Handle
Based in Seki-city, Kanehide’s products are known for their line of highly effective, durable knives that come at affordable prices. Their no-frills approach has produced many workhorse knives known for their dependability and longevity, particularly their butcher knives.
The MV series is short form for Molybdenum Vanadium, named after the two alloys that went into the making of this stainless steel. It is easy to sharpen and comes with great durability and corrosion resistance properties. Thanks to its compact size and weightness in the hand, this cleaver is easy to handle and aim, making the task of breaking through bones less daunting. It also comes with a hole you can use to hang it on the wall.
With a solid cleaver like this, you’ll have more flexibility with your choices of meat, particularly if you prefer buying larger/primal cuts or economical bone-in options. If you have struggled with jagged cuts on pork rib bones or BBQ chicken legs while using another knife, this cleaver may just be what you need.
When used decisively, the durable edge excels in cutting small bones cleanly without leaving behind hazardous splinters and fragments. With this Kanehide cleaver on hand, preparing dishes with bone-in protein (such as Chinese-style braised pork ribs) will be a breeze.
