i'll have to look at dexter as you'd mentioned.
My stainless Chinese cleaver was made in the USA. It was sold through Cutlery World out of Chattanooga, TN. My guess is that they are out of business since Google doesn't find a reference for them. I've had this one for more than 20 years, but it looks like new because I never use it. Maybe one day it will become a collectible. It's still in the original box.

Here's mine.

I was doing a kitchen remodel years ago and the client was going to toss it.

I don't know if its carbon steel or not.

I've always been very curious what is written on the blade. Does anyone here read Chinese?

Remodeling a kitchen usually involves replacing the floor, cabinets and appliances with new.

Many of our remodels require removing interior or exterior walls and pouring new foundations outside the original footprint of the home to expand a small kitchen into a larger one.

Remodels involve dust control, demolition, framing, including a new roof system, insulation roofing, electrical, plumbing, hvac, drywall, paint, countertops, flooring, cabinets back splashes,......and all associated inspections

I believe at the very beginning someone asked if the cleaver was forged steel. If it Chinese, then it should be. After all their woks are. And it certainly looks like forged steel. It doesn't have that shiny look that SS has.
