16 reviews for 8″ Chinese Vegetable Cleaver with Walnut Handle

  1. Phillip C. (verified owner)

    I love this knife, I work in a restaurant where we make everything from scratch so this is pretty a basic necessity if you want a sharp knife that doubles as a bench scraper.

  2. Andy B. (verified owner)

    My wife is a great cook, but she didn’t have a great cleaver. Well, now she does. Another great product with excellent quality.

  3. Glenn R Blankenship (verified owner)

    after several replacements I now have a cleaver that is perfect, great customer service

  4. Cathy M. (verified owner)

    It’s become my go-to for EVERYTHING. It so easily slices through potatoes and carrots, but also is maneuverable and easy for mincing garlic. I’m completely in love!

  5. Glenn R Blankenship (verified owner)

    A great blade ,sharp and well balanced however the handle has some movement to it .I might be a little picky ,(I make knives as a hobby) it seems it could be secured better.

  6. Dotty F. (verified owner)

    Works beautifully. Made in America is wonderful and one of the reasons I purchased it.

  7. Keith C. (verified owner)

    It does a great job of chopping vegetables and nuts, plus it feels safer in my hands than the nakiri knife I was using before. Plus, it’s sharp!

  8. Georgia O. (verified owner)

    This is perfect for chopping mountains of greens.

  9. Zachary T. (verified owner)

    I am just about able to preform and accomplish the same amount of prepping and cooking using this knife as I would be if I was using a standard chef knife.

  10. CHARLES T. (verified owner)

    Bought it as gift. Not given/used yet.

  11. Stephanie S. (verified owner)

    I had been thinking about this for a while, and decided to go for it. It is perfect for hard squashes, which I struggled with just using a chef’s knife. This cleaver made quick work of an acorn squash, which makes me more likely to prepare them more often.

  12. Charlotte S. (verified owner)

    I found it to be extremely helpful when prepping veggies for a large batch of stew and when slicing supper thin onion for big bowl of salad. The extra width of blade and offset of edge to handle makes repetitive slicing much more convenient than a standard French Chef’s knife. The only down side was that it arrived a little less sharp than the other Lamson knives I have purchased..

  13. GIA C. (verified owner)

    I really like this knife. It looks beautiful and cuts perfectly. I was slightly concerned about the weight, but it’s a non issue. I’m not cutting vegetables all day. My only concern is how well the handle will last over time. I’ll just have to wait and see, but in the meantime I’ll make sure to take care of it and enjoy it as much as I can.

  14. Joseph K. (verified owner)

    A great weight for vegetables.

  15. Paul T. (verified owner)

    The knife arrived with a sharp edge, but the sharpened edge has flat low spots toward the heel of the blade. Looks like uneven pressure while using the belt sander during sharpening process. Compared to my Lamson Santoku, my chinese vegetable cleaver is nothing to be proud of.

  16. Daniel O. (verified owner)

    Lamson sharpe as usual. Well balanced. Suggestion, make a plastic guard for the blade, for safe keeping.

In 1869, newly elected U.S. president Ulysses S. Grant received a “cutting edge” gift from a small manufacturer in Shelburne Falls Massachusetts. Lamson presented our nation’s leader with a 62-piece dinner set. 
The handcrafted pieces bore handles of ivory, while others were pure mother-of-pearl. The 62 pieces remain in the nation’s capital on display at the Smithsonian Institution.
