This little cleaver is really quite perfect. Slices hard veg effortlessly and the handle is ergonomic. I have used this quite a bit and find it is my go to knife in the drawer. However, save the packaging and make sure you wash and dry the cleaver and put it straight back into its packaging to store as it is fragile (as caveated by the lakeland team) and therefore liable to nicks and chips if you don't look after it properly. That said, it takes two seconds to clean and dry so really not much additional effort required to keep it in tip top shape.
A note from the team
Thanks for placing your review.You are correct in saying that the ceramic cleaver blade needs a little more care.They should not be bent, dropped, used to crush food, cut bone or frozen food.
