Despite the cleaver appearance and name elsewhere, this is more like a tall nakiri so it's light, thin and extremely sharp rather than a thick heavyweight bruiser.
As such, it's not suitable for some jobs you might use a traditional cleaver for such as crushing through bone.
This incredible blade has been paired with a one-off custom red mallee burr with translucent red live edge handle with red truestone spacers from UK handle maker @letshandlethis.

Our aim is to measure and photograph all our products as accurately as possible but due to the handmade nature of many items, please be aware that there may be some variance in the measurements and that things such as blade and knife handle patterns can vary and presentation boxes may differ from those shown but we will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
