Timascus Wave Cleaver 240mm

Benjamin holds back nothing. This exquisite clever with oversize blade measuring 240mm long and 100mm tall brings weight and power to the cutting board with a hard, very thin edge of 1.2519 carbon steel below convex bevels that will part anything in its path. Benjamin's 'Wave' blade texture is beautiful and dark, providing a visible expression of the forging process. To wield such a culinary tool, a handle in black stabilized curly birch wood is capped with sculpted timascus (aka titanium damascus) handcrafted in Austria by Christoph Feichtl of Reigersburger Burgschmied. Included is a custom saya in solid, black G10.

The Story

Austrian bladesmith Benjamin Kamon of Kamon Knives has surrounded himself with edged tools for most of his life. When he began cooking as a teenager, blades and their various usage techniques provided intrigue and Ben became quite proficient. The rest, as they say, is history. Employing clean, high-hardenable carbon steels, fully water-cooled grinding for optimal grain structure, and recognizable, removable handles, Benjamin's work is of the highest caliber, while maintaining a unique and imaginative approach to his craft throughout.
