Classic 8" Chinese Santoku Cleaver

Featured in a write-up by New York Magazine, Lamson's Santoku Cleaver is an amazingly strong and versatile tool. It cuts, slices, chops, trims, and is great for smashing garlic cloves. Use it to make quick work of vegetables of all shapes and sizes. 


  • Signature Craftsmanship - Meticulously formed in Lamson's Massachusetts facilities, each of their knives is finished to perfection using state-of-the-art technology coupled with hand finishing as well as proprietary polishing and sharpening processes. 
  • Unmatched Blade Quality - Blades are precision-forged from the finest high-carbon stainless steel from Solingen, Germany, using the traditional hot-drop method. Blades are then tempered and ice-hardened to a perfect 58 on the Rockwell Hardness Scale. This results in a hard, wickedly sharp blade that retains an edge for longer and is both highly corrosion-resistant and elastic.
  • Ergonomic Handles - The infused walnut handle is designed to be comfortable in the hand while in use. 
  • Superior Handling & Cutting Performance - Full tang blades with triple-riveted handles ensure ideal balance and weight. Lamson's combination machine and hand-sharpening processes ensure a consistently sharp and durable edge.
  • Lifetime Warranty - Every Lamson product comes with a Lifetime Warranty against manufacturing defects
  • Guaranteed reliability - Lamson's Sharp for Life™ program supplies a lifetime of complimentary professional sharpening on every knife they make.
Materials:  high-carbon 420HC stainless steel, walnut, brass rivets
