Wood Yew Believe It

Between the Mini and the Big Boy, comes our original Cleaver, the Astounding. There’s a huge amount to be said for a good cooking cleaver: it gives you unparalleled travel if you’re using your knuckles as a guide, you can use it to scoop the fruits of your labours in to the pan and it has heft sufficient to deal with even the most agricultural examples of celeriac.

To make it even more of an experience, the bottom inch of the blade is pretty much a parallel sliver of hardened steel less than 1mm thick. It’s just one of those knives that you may not see the point in, have a go with and then soon find yourself using it for everything, it’s just so much fun and such a joy to wield. We have chosen to use yew for the handle, the only English hardwood we use, with a simple black liner

As with every Savernake Knife, the Astounding Cleaver features our trademark concave blade, expertly blended into a tapering convex cutting edge. The blade’s concavity allows the knife to have both a sturdy spine and a cutting edge best measured in microns. It also removes excess weight and encumbrance from the side of the blade. We use 60 HRC Sandvik 14c28n Stainless steel which gives our knives the perfect level of sharpness and durability rated in the top 2.5% in the world. The blade is Full Tang to give the knife optimum strength and balance.
