    Sellers I've looked at were pushing rmb500-1500 for shipping to Taiwan, so I think I'll pass.

    Question to those more knowledgeable.

    Between these two slicing cleavers an suggestions on which to go with?
    Unsure if the higher bevel is good or bad? Seems with Takedas the higher bevel performed better?

    This from the translation looks like a boning cleaver? https://world.taobao.com/item/149023....ITH3OM#detail

    Wow those cleavers sell for nothing, how in the hell can they do that? The materials alone would have to cost more than what they're asking for.

    How can someone get one of them to try it out? The payment process on the site is a bit confusing

    If people are interested, once I figure out this sign-up I don't mind purchasing a couple and sending them out for folks. If you are in the US it will cost maybe $10 at most for me to ship to you.

    Shipping is about $13 dollars to the US, I'm having some issues verifying my account...

    I may have ordered one of the small ones, but we'll see if it pans out.

    Great video Dave - does anybody know the materials and the material properties of those cleavers?
