Chinese cleavers have a thicker blade and are more durable for use when chopping or breaking apart meat and bones.
Ideal for: Slicing, disjointing. Useful on food types: Breaking down whole fish, meat and poultry where a heavy blade is useful.

I have used Sakai Takayuki knives for over 5 years and through all that time the blades are incredibly durable and comfortable to use. Repetitive cutting motions are easy and do not tire your hand out.
