To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I wasn't expecting much for the price but was pleasantly surprised. The edge was ok on arrival but not brilliant. This was definitely improved after 5 minutes on a 1000 grit stone and hasn't been sharpened since. Vegetable prep is far easier with a cleaver once you get used to adopting a different grip and slicing style. DON'T use for chopping bones as the blade is too fine and not designed for that purpose.. but it's great for slicing meat and fish .
Very happy with this model from Mercer . Easy to maintain quick to sharpen & remain razor sharp for long period of use . So good I have three in my restaurant kitchen . Mercer should make a slightly longer & wider knife on the same design .
