Because our knives are forged by hand, they take a considerable amount of time to make.

This small cleaver is designed to chop herbs and dice vegetables quickly and efficiently. The knife weighs just under 8 oz. and is balanced slightly forward of center, allowing for deft handling and precise cleaving. The curve of the blade enables a smooth rolling chop action with one or two hands.

The damascus steel blade is hand-forged in Timmonsville, South Carolina, by Reed Moore, using traditional methods combined with modern tool steels. The cleaver blade is 4.25" and contains approximately 416 layers of four types of steel: 52100, 5160, 15N20, and 203E. The average carbon content of this steel is approximately 0.75%, making it a tough, high carbon composite steel. The blade is differentially tempered so that the edge retains a high degree of hardness, while the backside of the blade is softer to absorb shock. The combination of a hard edge and soft back creates a tougher, more durable knife that should last a lifetime.

The handle wood is Pacific yew reclaimed from an industrial paper roll chock block. The handle is attached with high quality West Systems marine-grade epoxy, before being hand riveted with solid brass rivets. The handle has been finished with food safe butcher's block oil.
