Bronze Victorian Cleaver 130mm

Built in the Victorian Style that inspired artist Tai Goo comes an exquisite meat cleaver featuring a bold, hand-forged blade, and superb attention to detail from front to back. Working at his shop in Arizona's Sonoran Desert, Tai is a skilled and experienced artist blacksmith who creates heirloom objects like this chef's knife for use in private homes and professional kitchens alike. Shaped by hand from 1095 carbon steel, the strong, weighted, 130mm / 5.1" blade boasts dark, patinated flats above tough and durable bevels that culminate at a razor-sharp edge which stretches not only the length of the blade, but also along its height; sharpened along the blade’s front face all the way up to the hole for hanging, Tai adds performance and versatility when chopping through large cuts of proteins. For comfort, control, and stunning looks, Tai has shaped a round handle from ebonized curly maple, capped with a turned bronze ferrule in the front that boasts a subtle taper and wonderful museum-style fit-up, as well as a domed, mild steel and bronze butt cap. A one-of-a-kind cleaver for a one-of-a-kind kitchen.
