Ironwood 9-Layer Cleaver 177mm

Clad in satin-finished stainless steel, the blades nine-layer formula brings 100-layer damascus between two veins of pure nickel and edge of 1.2519 carbon steel to the cutting board for capable and efficient chopping day in and day out. For the latest chef's cleaver by Austrian bladesmith Martin Huber, the house-made steel is forged to produce a striking, 177mm / 7" long by 78mm tall blade with wonderfully shaped convex, mid-height bevels above a very thin, razor-sharp edge. Perfect for effortless vegetable chopping using the knife's forward balance and weight to slide through ingredients like butter. Spine and choil are rounded for comfort in the pinch grip, and an elegant, understated handle of ironwood burl with a tapered bolster of stabilized bog oak and flush retention bolt visible in the rear provides control in any grip.

The Story

Introduced to metalsmithing as a mere toddler, Martin Huber, son and grandson to multiple blacksmiths, crafts handmade chef knives at his shop in Austria not far from where he grew up. After gaining experience with larger employers post-graduation, Martin began his own venture in 2016 and has been building handmade cutting tools since. An eye for culinary knives and a desire to put unique objects into the hands of chefs everywhere, Martin and his assistant design kitchen cutlery from house-made steels, ranging from unique mosaic damascus pattens to ku-mai construction and everything in between, sometimes collaborating with other makers, and always producing unique, one-of-a-kind object. Martin Huber knives are built to use, combining captivating material combinations and design styles with purpose-driven geometry and finishes.
