This is a big and bold forged carbon steel cleaver. Perfect for cleaving through meat or kindling, bridging the gap between knife and axe. It is accompanied by a bush forged paring knife perfect for smaller cutting tasks.
The blade has a polished “Bush Forged” finish. This brings the idea of a kitchen knife back to basics. The hundreds of hammer blows needed to forge the blade shape leave their legacy on the blade’s surface; raw steel forged to shape and then sharpened to a razor edge.
This knife takes its form the South American Gaucho knives and is a practical every use knife stouter than a kitchen knife but practicle and usefull. It is a practical and beautifull tool for use in the garden, BBQ or bush.
The Cleaver tang passes all the way through the handle and is peened over (riveted) a brass peening washer. The handle is made from fire blackened ash and has been oiled and waxed. The oak tanned leather sheath is oil impregnated and waxed for durability.
