A novel quantum teleportation protocol for certain class of eight-qubit state is proposed. We utilize a six-qubit cluster state as quantum channel. In our scheme, the sender performs four controlled-NOT operations and a six-qubit von-Neumann projective measurement, the original state with deterministic probability can be reconstructed by the receiver. Higher efficiency can be achieved based on our results.
