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 went to the chef shops looking for a quality cleaver & found that they were $200 or more. Through Amazon, though hard to search with the right query, to get to the type of cleaver I wanted, I stumbled upon this one.
Heavily constructed, having the desired design, as to prevent food from getting entwined in the handle, this one has all the attributes that I wanted for about a tenth of the price of the ones in those pretentious chef shops. It seems to hold an edge well too, even though it seems that it is stainless steel?
I use this cleaver for cutting everything. You won't read anything macabre about me in the news though; I only use it for food.
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). Took a star off for that - they were advertised as full-tang when I bought.
