Hitohira FJ VG-1 Chinese Cleaver 220mm Pakka Handle (No Bolster)


The FJ line is known for consistently impressing customers with exceptional performance at an affordable price point. We love this line of blade for its quality ura-sharpening and finish, shown in the exceptionally thin, consistent silhouette along the edge and the spine. This detail exemplifies the skill of the craftsmen/sharpener, as it is not an easy feat to pull this off on a mono-steel stainless blade. However, this painstaking work is done so that the users will find it very easy to sharpen. Furthermore, a notched choil allows for comfortable grip, a great detail also difficult to find in stainless steel single bevel blades. 

The FJ VG-1 line of single bevel knives are known for being highly efficient and durable workhorse knives. Ideal for first time owners of single bevel knives who want a high performance blade without the maintenance hassle associated with carbon steel. The Pakka handle creates a heavier feel in the hand, resulting in a more stable feel for those more acquainted with Western-style handles. 

A Chinese cleaver is an all-purpose blade that is gaining huge popularity in North America recently for its utility and efficiency. Despite its bone-cleaver-esque shape, it is absolutely 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!
