Comfortable and well-balanced. I love the hand-hammered pattern on the blade. Excellent craftsmanship.

Cleaver (Chinese Chef's Knife) - Pakka Collection - 190 mm blade
The flat surface of KOTAI's Cleaver makes it a great tool for crushing garlic, nuts or ginger. Its wide blade also allows you to scoop up chopped and sliced ingredients and transfer them safely to a container or a pan.
Forged with Japanese 440C high-carbon stainless steel, its blade will stay sharp up to 10 times longer than other knives. 440C combines a high carbon content for hardness and edge retention with the optimal amount of chromium for corrosion resistance.
HANDMADE BY MASTER KNIFEMAKERS
High-end 440C Japanese steel is used by third-generation expert bladesmiths to handcraft flawless, durable and beautiful knives.
Each KOTAI knife requires 138 steps and over 2 months to be made before going through rigorous testing.

I prefer the cleaver over any knife since it's got a big surface to sweep all ingredients while keeping the chopping board and kitchen clean when I transfer the ingredients. It's useful for cutting, chopping, anything! The size of this cleaver is also smaller and bit light than some, so it's good for the wrist
Un gran aliado en la cocina! Me encanta su diseño, su acabado y sobre todo lo bien que corta!
Es un básico que tengo siempre para mis barbacoas y para preparar mis verduras!
Es muy fácil de afilar, ya que es una hoja fina pero robusta! Su mango de madera es de calidad suprema!
coltelli di eccellente qualità e con un ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo.
unica pecca, la custodia interna che serve a proteggere la lama quando la si ripone nel cassetto o la si porta con se in qualche spostamento.
è fatta in legno ma è fragilissima e per i pochi fortunati che l'hanno ricevuta intatta (non io, in quanto due coltelli su due l'ho ricevuta crepata e con calamita scollata) la romperanno verosimilmente a breve a meno che non la lascino inutilizzata nel cassetto :-)
detto questo comprerò sicuramente altri lorocoltelli per completare il set che mi sono figurato e non darò peso alla custodia interna.
la sostanza c'è tutta, manca quel plus che avrebbero voluto offrire
Holzverpackung ließ sich nicht öffnen. Soll Aufbewahrungsort sein. Außerdem wahr sie beschädigt.
Für 122,00€. Traurig
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the steel used for the blade? Will it rust?
This knife is made of 440C steel from Japan. 440C is a high-carbon stainless steel, meaning that it combines the property of high-carbon steel (very hard due to the high carbon content of 0.95%+ and the vacuum heat treatment, therefore very sharp and able to keep its edge for much longer than other steels) and stainless steel (ability to resist corrosion and stains). So the blade will not rust, but you have to care for it properly by washing it with soapy water and drying it quickly after using it.
Do not put it in the dishwasher or leave it to soak in the sink.
Is it worth buying this knife or should I just get a 30€ knife from Ikea?
A “cheap” knife will end up costing you more in the long run, because it can break or turn dull. Low quality steel will not keep a sharp edge no matter how many hours you waste on sharpening, and you will end up having to buy a new knife every year or so.
There are plenty of “cheap” knives that cannot perform to decent standards and very few options for chefs who are passionate about cooking, need the right tools to assist them in their career or hobby but are not willing to overspend on a brand name.
