The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver features a big, thick blade suitable for processing larger cuts of bone-in meat or breaking down whole poultry. Use it to separate spare ribs or cut a chicken down to size. Chopping beef for stew is another great use for a cleaver. The back of the blade can be used to tenderize meat as well. A cleaver comes in especially handy for chopping up meat and bones for stock, and works its magic on whole lobster as well.
As you might expect, a blade that gets this kind of use must be tougher and thicker, rather than razor thin. The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver is made of AUS8A, a high-carbon stainless steel that offers strength, hardness, wear resistance, and can be easily re-sharpened as needed. The Shun Classic Meat Cleaver is part of the Shun Classic line of tasteful and contemporary designs. It has a riveted handle in ebony PakkaWood to match the rest of the Shun Classic line. The Classic line offers you the widest assortment of both traditional culinary blade shapes and cutting-edge designs, so you can always find the right knife for the task.
