About This Item
Used TESSHU Chinese Cleaver 220mm High Carbon Steel Blade Knife It was purchased one of our customers, and he did not want to get stain and rust on the knife, so I accepted it returning and changed with stainless steel blade version. It was very little used, and some stain and rust spots, so I tried to clean and sharpen it. It is thin blade, so it is for slicing meat, vegetables, and it is not for cutting bones. It has pure carbon steel, so easy to sharpen (the stainless steel cleaver normally harder to sharpen), but it is going to stain or rust, if we leave the blade wet after used it.
We had better to keep on drying, and sometimes, we should clean with kitchen cleanser to remove stain and rust.
