The Misono 440 Chinese Cleaver is created from one of Misono's most popular lines. It is constructed out of molybdenum steel and a water resistant wooden handle. The amount of chromium is increased from 13% to 16% for the 440 line in order to achieve longer-lasting edge retention than the Misono Molybdenum line. Chinese cleavers are excellent all-purpose kitchen knives, ideal for slicing boneless meats and vegetables, crushing spices, and moving ingredients from the cutting board to the pan. The curve of the water-resistant wood handle is designed to fit comfortably in the userâ€™s hand, making it popular among those who prefer thinner handles. Misonoâ€™s famously thin and sharp knives are hand finished and inspected to ensure the highest quality product.
Left-handed knives are available for this style. Please call customer service at 1-800-626-2172 to order.
