Arguably, this is one of the better chopping, cleaving, broad utility kitchen knives on the market. It's thin enough to slice very well, and broad enough to act as a scoop to place diced herbs where they need to go. Like all Victorinox / Forschner knives, it's easy to sharpen and maintain. It's weakness, if you want to call it that, is a walnut handle held on by one rivet. (It's a narrow stick tang with solitary pin point if that means anything to you.) Other than that, it's one marvelous example of minimalist extravagance. It'll do what you ask of it, so long as that doesn't require heavy chopping. It's a natural slicer, not a hacker. Learn to choke up on this thing and it becomes a total substitute for a classic 8-10" French Chef's knife.

this is a very sharp copping knife. I won't call it cleaver although it intended to be made as a cleaver. It's only 10.4 oz which I think should be at least 1 lb to be heavy enough for some heavy duty chopping. It's sharp though. I have not used it yet but I think should be able to complete normal chopping job.

I always had great experience with Victorinox knives. This chinese cleaver was very sharp like all Victorinox knives. It cuts through carrots like butter. The blade is very thin so it might appear to be flimsy. The thin blade makes it very light, which is great if you do alot of chopping. Do not use this knife to cut through bones or other hard substance. It is great to chop vegetable and slicing meat. When you wash it, water tend to collect in the handle. the handle needs to face up in order for the water to drain. Overall, this is great value for everyday chopping and dicing. It may appear not well constructed but is comfortable enough to use. It has not fallen apart on me yet. If you like a lightly constructed knife with a very sharp edge, this is the knife for you. For the price, this is a good starter knife for someone new in the usage of the chinese cleaver. Once you get use to it, this maybe the only knife you will be using. If you want something with more heft, look for the Dexter brand or the more expensive alternative like shun, global, or Wustoff.

This identical model was my first kitchen knife 25 years ago. I used it for everything, as I taught myself to cook through my batchelor days. This new replacement has the same balance and control of my original, but the metal is a bit thinner and lighter. Its still a formidible, affordable, and worthy knife for almost any chopping/dicing application.

The blade is strong, light, easy to sharpen. Overall, very well balanced and easy to handle. The handle is solidly attached to the blade and seems as if it may last that way. This may seem like an odd comment, but you'd be surprised how shoddy some of the handle-blade attachments are. Lose that firmness and you lose the functionality.

This is my first Chinese cleaver. I've had it for a few months, after deciding to experiment with replacing my knife set (western chef's knife, slicer, paring knife, etc.) with an all-purpose Chinese knife. I'll never look back. It took a while to get used to, but now I use this for all cutting tasks except slicing bread. It's also great for transferring cut vegetables from cutting board to pan, crushing garlic, and as a bench scraper.

This is my second Victorinox knife. They've both been very sharp, well balanced, light, and easy to sharpen and maintain. This is a great knife for the price.
