Bronze Ash Cleaver 200mm

In classic Benjamin Kamon style, with every detail accounted for, each transition smooth and precise, and every millimeter of the edge crisp and sharp, the Bronze Ash Cleaver is our latest offering from this talented Austrian bladesmith. The 1.2519 carbon steel blade is forged tall and robust, thick and weighted along a rounded, polished, tapering spine that lends power and heft to help the thin, hair-popping edge move effortlessly through ingredients. Designed primarily for vegetable, the 200mm / 7.8" edge sits beneath short, convex, and dynamic bevels, slightly thicker toward the heal than the front of the blade, making this a versatile, daily-use tool for a wide variety of cuts. Complementing the two-tone blade with belt-finished bevels and forge-finished flats is a gorgeous and comfortable handle sculpted from dyed and stabilized curly ash with weathered bronze end caps.
