Product Description

Some say the chuka is the only knife you'll ever need. We're obliged to disagree with that sentiment (we're not Chuka Japan, after all) and would simply say that a chinese cleaver would be an excellent addition to your kitchen armory.

Most chuka-bocho we've supplied have been ramrod-straight along the cutting edge, and in all honesty we were under the impression that this aspect of chuka-ness was non-negotiable. Turns out it's not.

This particular chuka-bocho can be had with a curved profile (described as 'intuitive' by its first buyer) or with the more common straight edge. It's a tall blade of course and your height, stance and cutting will play a part in your preference. Nice to have a choice.
