When Only a Kitchen Cleaver Will Do, Reach for a Chroma Type 301

If your taking on large cuts of meat such as a rack of ribs, or whole poultry, or a massive mound cheese, you'll value the heft of a cleaver. Cleavers are also helpful when you're tackling oversized vegetables such as squash. A cleaver is a fairly large knife, not unlike a hatchet with a rectangular blade, that's used to hack through thick cuts of meat or bone. The kitchen cleaver, unlike June Cleaver of throwback TV fame, is rather heavy, exposes an especially tough edge that’s able to withstand repeated blows, and is somewhat rectangular, as opposed to squarish. Inasmuch as the Chinese are credited with having invented the cleaver, Chroma pays them homage in this striking interpretation of the classic kitchen cleaver.

Chroma’s Advantages Go Far Beyond Simple Styling

More than anything, what you want from a kitchen cleaver is sharp, focused force. All Chroma Type 301 kitchen knives feature Japanese 301 stainless steel that’s ground on both sides of the blade to present an extra-sharp edge upon its very first use. As an added benefit, Japanese 301 steel is able to maintain edge sharpness longer than any other type of steel. Here’s how the Chroma cleaver surpasses the competition. For starters, it’s lightweight. Second, it’s a well-balanced knife. If you’re puzzled as to where to place your hand to ensure perfect knife balance, for a clue look no further than the small, raised metal knob on the side of the knife. It marks where the blade and handle interset, helping you find the perfect grip for maximum knife control. Finally, its "V" shape feels super comfortable in the hand so you can work long periods of time without your hand muscles growing tired.
