52100 vegetable cleaver
A highly versatile knife that can be use to slice, chop and mince. It's primarily a vegetable knife not suitable for hacking through bones.
This blade is made from 52100 carbon steel featuring convex grind. For ideal balance of durability and edge retention, the blade is heat-treated to 62 Rockwell.
The wa style handle is made from olive wood with stabilised birch end caps.
High carbon steel requires hand washing and most importantly, immediate drying to prevent corrosion—a small price to pay for a longer-lasting edge. Over time, a natural patina will form on the surface of the blade.
Blade length 183mm
Blade height 88mm
Overall length 318mm
