Dexter Russell S5197W Customer Reviews
Product Code: 135-08140
The Dexter chinese chefs knife(cleaver) was the first one I ever bought when I started cooking professionally because it was very affordable and I used to watch the show "Yan can cook"(he used a chinese cleaver style knife). It is now 17 years later and this knife is still in heavy rotation in my kitchens alongside my Shun premier(expensive knife). The Dexter cleaver keeps a very sharp edge, it is heavy duty and comfortable. I've even had another chef offer to buy mine (no kidding) because it is such a versatile, rock solid tool. I wouldnt wash it in the dishwasher just because the finish on the wooden handle will wear off eventually.
