The Norpro is nicely balanced, plenty sharp, and has the feel of a quality product.
The handle is fitted very well. I am 100% satisfied with this cleaver.
If you are ordering a cleaver, know what you are after. This is for heavy duty
cutting through racks of ribs for example. If you want one for vegetables and fine
work like you see Asian chefs using, you want a much lighter and much sharper
vegetable type cleaver.
Anyway, I wanted a GOOD fillet knife, you know, with flexible blade. This knife only cost me around $7 (used via Amazon) so I'm not complaining, it's well made and will be useful, but honestly, this is a BONING knife, not a FILLET knife! (why is it "filet mignon", but "fiLLet knife"? LOL)
I wanted a matching set of knives in my block without dropping a fortune, so it's ok, but I really wouldn't pay more than say $15 for the large chef (and less for smaller ones).
IKEA actually has some really nice knife offerings. They have 3 different collections (representing varying grades of quality), but they are all good knives (also made from Molybdenum-Vanadium steel like Kleve - a "german" recipe steel) and very well priced for what they are. There's even a Damascus steel chef knife (shun style). I'll be getting a fillet knife from there. (Look for Slitbar and Gynnsam brands).
UPDATE: these are NOT full-tang knives (looks like they stopped claiming that). I checked with an electrical multi-meter - there is no conductivity between the blade and the pommel (butt bolster).
P.S. I did get the Gynnsam fillet knife from IKEA - it's $12 and an excellent inexpensive fillet knife with flexible sharp blade that holds an edge well and nice ergonomics. I've had it for over a year now and used it to butcher whole ducks, fillet fish and similar tasks.
I also recently bought the IKEA Slitbar 8" damascus steel chef knife. It's $50 and a pretty good value for a damascus knife - it needs sharpening, but ergonomically a very comfy knife. Well made.
I returned the KLEVE knives. I'm sure you could sharpen these knives and get them to perform much better, but it was a big turn off to me. I'm used to the knife being as sharp as it can possibly be when they are new. Instead I bought a Victorinox Santoku and couldn't be happier. It is much lighter than the KLEVE, which may be a turn off for some because it doesn't feel as mighty in your hand. The Vicorinox is ~$40, but is probably dollar for dollar the highest value you will get out of any knife, whether you're talking about a $10 knife or a $140 knife. I found the weight of the KLEVE felt good but would probably grow tiresome if you had a lot of chopping to do. It also made me feel like I had less dexterity than with a lighter knife.
Anyways that is my $.02. Hope you found it useful!
