Curly Walnut 110mm Cleaver

Named for its height rather than length, this Chinese vegetable cleaver by Austrian bladesmith Benjamin Kamon is the tallest and most impressive of the style to emerge from his shop since he began forging chef's knives. With mile-high flats that feature Ben's Wave texturing, the 235mm long blade stands 110mm, or nearly four- and one-half inches, off the cutting board. The clean, low-alloy 1.2519 carbons steel is treated and quenched to a very hard 65 HRC on the Rockwell hardness scale, producing a razor-sharp and thin edge below short, convex bevels. Power and strength resonate from every inch of steel. The polished, rounded spine and choil contrast the forge-finished flats, belt-finished bevels, and matte-finished titanium in the handle beautifully. Completing the handle between those Torpedo-style, solid titanium end caps is a wonderfully textured piece of curly walnut wood for a comfortable and elegant grip. A custom G10 saya with titanium hardware is included. For a one-of-a-kind cleaver that will move through vegetables with little effort from one of the best bladesmiths in the business, look no further.
