    If you got multiple (or any) offers, you could always post them here--we love to give suggestions! :-)

    If you buy something unused, or at least not sharpened, or from a competent sharpener, bevels should be okay. I'm guessing you don't want to pay for professional sharpening. Or you could just follow some of the very good advice on here and do your own sharpening.

    Speaking of which, how do you plan to sharpen?

    Alright, I think I will look into buying used.

    There are two problems I can think of though; the first is that I am unsure what a good knife would be, and the bevel would need to be set correctly if it isn't already.

    It appears that those are the stainless versions. In my experience and according to the website, there is only one size for the high-carbon steel cleaver.
