Buttoned-Up Vegetable Cleaver

This is no ordinary vegetable cleaver. The 7.5" (190mm) san mai blade, forged, heat treated and water quenched by bladesmith Bryan Raquin is dressed to a T with a handle and matching saya by Julio Garza of Mokuzo Toronto. An exciting opportunity to own one of few cleavers created by Bryan, and one of the last custom jobs to come from Mokuzo Toronto before he recently closed shop. Birdseye maple, ebony, copper and a stone composite combine to give the knife a buttoned-up appeal that will make heads turn. And don't let the polished look fool you, the blade on this knife is a beauty in its own right, standing 70mm tall at the heel its sharp and wonderfully thin edge of hard, super-clean carbon steel is ready for serious action.

The Story

This was an exciting collaboration to bring to life, working with the talented Julio Garza on a handle and saya design to compliment the bladesmithing of a maker we can't get enough of, Bryan Raquin. The handle and saya design are adapted from a concept sketched out by Julio early in his design career and the beautiful grain of the woods contrast with both the copper and granite-like elements they sit beside as well as the blade's finish for a look that just works. For daily use, or that special occasion when something a little extra can set the kitchen on fire, the Button-Up Vegetable Cleaver.
