Alabaster Cleaver 240mm

A full-size Chinese style cleaver with neshiji blade finish, hand-forged by Austrian bladesmith Benjamin Kamon. The very hard (65 HRC) and very sharp edge in Benjamin's preferred 1.2519 carbon steel measures 240mm long, balanced beautifully with geometry thin enough for precision slices, and sturdy enough for all-day chopping. At 16 oz / 456 g overall, this incredible object exudes power and unabashed potential in the hand, the handle of Juma faux-ivory with aluminum end caps standing 100mm above the blade's edge.
