Well I love tge profile of this cleaver. If I had the money and didn't own gyutos I loved now I would be all over this blade. Some people might find it blocky but for a cleaver I think it is downright sexy. I also like the wide bevel. I own a Moritaka and a no name stainless San Mai cleaver. I like the wide bevels of the cheapo better than the Moritaka; the moritaka cuts like a dream off the stones for a little while but those wide bevels work well for a cleaver I think.
