Suien VC Chinese Cleaver

  • Suien is well known in the knife community for offering great quality at a great price. This is the knife that made them famous. The Suien VC Chinese Cleaver is often touted at the greatest value in Chinese cleavers. It is a great first cleaver for those interested in trying out a Chinese cleaver. Suien shoots for an HRC of about 62-63 on this knife.


    *Chinese cleavers are not designed to be used on bone or for boning tasks... they are much more like chef's knives than meat cleavers.
