I have a cheapie squarish, thin bladed, chisel grind, cleaver looking knife of the tv wonder knife variety.
Am mulling over what to get in a similar style, but of a better quality. Say less than $100, preferably much less.

There is a Mac knife. 6.5 inch Japanese style vegetable cleaver for ~ $85. I'd rather spend less.

Some pics of the Mac and the cheapie

Macs are certainly great knives the other picture is more of a chinese cleaver they vary from less than 10€ from the chinese shops to 500€ for a Japanese one the mac is far from a chinese cleaver the big blade is great for scooping up from the board.~The mac is more of a Nakira .

At $44, it will shortly be ordered. What sort of oil / maintenance do you use to keep rust at bay. I remember LeoBarr mentioning some sort of safe oil a bit ago, but don't recall its name.

Thanks for the replys guys

Ballistol is a bit cheaper and edible (well, not toxic) mineral oil as well. But camelia oil might smell better (does it Leo? never seen it).
