Thought I'd give everyone a heads up a bargain performance kitchen knife. Just got this from Lee Valley tools. I am giddy with happiness. It's really well balanced and sharp. I put it in the same category as Opinels and Mora puukkos where they're cheap but just work great for what they are. And that carbon blade is turning a nice blueish patina. Between this, a pair of long and short carbon fillet knives and I got off Ebay from maker Fishing Fool, I've turned to using carbon blades for the kitchen.

as an aside, I have the Lee valley catalog, and if you're into restoration of an old house, or woodworking, you must have the catalog.

I was going to get a couple of them after work today. :D

Who makes a good carbon steel cleaver?

I saw the peasant knife in the new catalog and was intrigued. I'll probably end up getting one when my Lee Valley "want list" gets long enough to justify an order.
