    Meh... If it's not taking food out of you or your kids mouths have at it. It's not like you can spend it after you are gone so you might as well enjoy it now.

    As soon as I heard that Bernando was getting s Shigefusa Chuka bocho from Maximo, I put an order to Max as well, and here's what it is ..

    A black cousin of Bernando's. It's got some cloud that is not very loud and requires fine polishing to bring it out, but that's cool with me.

    I ordered this ages ago, basically to replace my Takeda.
    This one seems to suit me much better, so far I'm very happy with this purchase.
    As luck would have it, it was delivered to Maksim's at the very day we arrived for the gathering in Denmark.
    Good timing I'd say.

    That is awesome. I didn't even know he made them.

    Oops, sorry Birnando, typo e <-> i .

    At 380g and 215x110, this chuka is very light and easy to wield. Although, I wish the handle could be a bit bigger and the neck a touch shorter. It takes just a little bit of time to get used to.

    Very nice Chuka bocho.

    But I was wondering whether Shigafusa Cleaver can take the same abuse (cutting chicken bones, ribs, etc.) like my cheapo Chinese one without causing chip or bent on the metal.

    There are thick meat cleavers that are intended for the type of abuse you describe and then there are thin slicing cleavers that are designed for vegetables. The are as thin or thinner than gyutos or sujis and are not for chopping bones. They will chip.

    What Johnny said. These Shig Chuka are stupid thin and won't take any abuse from hard objects, although mincing meat should be all good . Here's Birnando's shot of his Chuka thinness:
